Computer and video games

A computer game is a computer-controlled game where players interact with objects displayed on a screen for the sake of entertainment.

A video game is essentially the same form of entertainment, but refers not only to games played on a personal computer, but also to games run by a console or arcade machine.

The term "computer game" also includes games which display only text or which use other methods, such as sound or vibration, as their primary feedback device, or a controller (console games), or a combination of any of the above.
