Topic: Gaming

Long gone are the days where "gaming" meant sitting alone in your room with a tv and Nintendo. While Donkey Kong and Mario will forever be classics, the world of gaming has gone far beyond the controller. These days, companies are making strides and finding new, inventive ways to incorporate gaming into many areas of life. From virtual reality, multi-player and even gamification as a job training tool, people and companies in our area are pushing the joystick forward.
