Who doesn’t know what a PC is? Personal Computers are one of the most defining features of our time. Machines that are great for work, for fun and for studying. But what PC really is? The Wiki says it’s a “multi-purpose electronic computer whose size, capabilities and price make it feasible for individual use”. But it gets better: “Personal Computers are intended to be operated directly by an end-user, rather than by a computer expert or technician”. Computers were originally invented to “compute” and solve complex mathematical problems. Today, everything is different and their original purpose is actually the least important one. Instead, they are used for gathering data (internet), entertainment (video games, movies, music, etc) and work.
Since the early 1990s, Microsoft operating systems and Intel hardware have dominated the PC market. There are alternatives to Microsoft Windows operating system but they still occupy a minority share of the industry. These include Apple's iOS and free open-source operating systems (e.g. Linux and Chrome OS).Music video games are part of a very unique genre. They typically challenge players to follow certain sequences of movement while dictating specific tempo and rhythm. Some music games require the player to input said rhythm by stepping on a dance pad, or by using a device based on a specific musical instrument. Music games have changed the interaction between players and their consoles by making the entire gaming experience more active. It’s worth noting that this particular video game genre has good influence on the music industry. It is evidenced by a significant raise of legal downloads of songs.
Recently, top music games such as Guitar Hero, Rock Band, and Sing Star have achieved huge popularity among casual gamers. They are played almost exclusively on consoles as the PC is not always suited for this type of “active gaming”.
