In 1972, a new form of entertainment became commercially available with the release of the video game Pong. In Pong, two players tried to "hit" an electronic "ball" back and forth. From these humble beginnings, a revolution in the entertainment industry was born. Interactive game revenues are now significantly greater than the domestic film industry ("Industrial Strengths,"
2000). Worldwide video games sales are now at $20 billion annually (Cohen,
2000). The PlayStation video game console, which began as a side project at
Sony, now represents $6 billion of the company's $20 billion in annual sales
(Cohen, 2000). It is reasonable to question whether video games may have similar effects to the effects of other entertainment media. In this chapter the term video game will be used to describe games played on video game consoles (e.g., PlayStation), on computers, or on hand-held video game devices
(e.g., GameBoy).
