5 Fascinating Facts about Video Games

If you’re a fan of video games, you’re in good company. Four in five Americans have a video gaming device and 155 million Americans regularly play, according to a 2015 report.

Even if you’re not a gamer, you likely know someone who is. The team at GameTruck Cherry Hill compiled some interesting facts about video games you may not have heard before.

Video Games Have Been Around Since The 1950s

Video gaming may seem like a modern invention, but the first video game was created by a physicist in 1958. It wasn’t anything like the video games we’re accustomed to, but William Higinbotham created a tennis game called “Tennis for Two.”

Women Play Almost As Much As Men

Who do you think of when you picture the average gamer? Stereotypically, video gamers are young men. But women make up a large portion of the gaming demographic. Forty-four percent of gamers are women, which shows video gaming is for everyone.

1 in 4 Video Game Players Is 50 Years Old Or Older

Again, if you’re picturing a teenager when you think about video games, reconsider: the average gamer is 35 years old. Interestingly enough, 27 percent of gamers are over the age of 50, which means middle-aged people are a bigger segment of the gaming population than players under 18.

The U.S. Leads The World For Video Game Spending

With hundreds of millions of Americans play video games regularly, it’s no surprise that the U.S. leads for video game spending worldwide. Fascinatingly, the U.S. drops to the third place once you account for spending per person.

There More Than A Million Games On The Market

How many video games are out there? Because games are released on so many platforms, it’s impossible to get an exact number, but even conservative estimates put the number well over one million when iOS and Android games are included.

Regardless of your favorite video game, GameTruck Cherry Hill can help you throw the perfect gaming party. Whether you’re in Cherry Hill or a nearby community, we’ll come to you and take the stress out of party planning. Contact us at 866-253-3191 or click here to get a free estimate.

WaterTag Parties at GameTruck Cherry Hill

 

Fun in the Sun

Holy Moly does it get hot during these last months of summer! A majority of people, if they are smart, spend a majority of that time in the shade or by the pool. While this can be extremely relaxing, and necessary for “me time,” it can all get a bit … boring.

So how can you “mix up” these last summer days? How can you do a complete 180 yet still maintain the hours of fun that can be spent at the pool?

Make a Splash with WaterTag

GameTruck Cherry Hill is proud of and excited to announce their newest adventures. Now apart from the HUGE selection of video games and different consoles (like the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4), WaterTag is now available.

For those of you that are not familiar, WaterTag is the hottest outdoor game this year. GameTruck Cherry Hill’s latest tag based group game can host up to 40 players at a time. That’s right, 40 players! That means that not only will the kids be able to participate, but mom and dad can make a splash too.

The Gear

Much like LaserTag, only twice as refreshing, WaterTag includes water guns and a vest.

This adjustable vest gauges the amount of water any individual is hit with, so as they get blasted with cool water the ball on the meter slowly climbs upwards. When it reaches the top, that means you’ve been tagged. While you may be down, you are certainly not out; because the fun can last for hours!

The water guns that GameTruck Cherry Hill provide for the game of WaterTtag should really be called water cannons. The pump action water guns, with a range of 70 feet, allow for an easy fill-up. This quick refill means that you can get back out on the playing field even sooner, and enjoy the party fun for more time.

So if you are tired of the same water activities, or want to try a new and unique birthday party experience, give GameTruck Cherry Hill a call at (866) 253-3191. Let them break the chain of monotony that binds you and cool you down in the process.
