Video game
A video game is an electronic game that involves human interaction with a user interface to generate visual feedback on a video device. The word video in video game traditionally referred to a raster display device,[1] but it now implies any type of display device that can produce two- or three-dimensional images. The electronic systems used to play video games are known as platforms; examples of these are personal computers and video game consoles. Video games typically use additional means of providing interactivity and information to the player. History Early games used interactive electronic devices with various display formats. Inspired by radar display tech, it consisted of an analog device that allowed a user to control a vector-drawn dot on the screen to simulate a missile being fired at targets, which were drawings fixed to the screen.[4] Other early examples include: Overview Platforms Genres Classifications Casual games Main article: Casual game Serious games Educational games Cheating

Television program A television program (television programme in the United Kingdom), also called television series, is a segment of content intended for broadcast on television. It may be a one-time production or part of a periodically recurring series. A one-time broadcast may be called a "special", or particularly in the UK a "special episode". A television film ("made-for-TV movie" or television movie), is a film that is initially broadcast on television rather than released in theaters or direct-to-video, although many successful TV movies are later released on DVD. A program can be either recorded, as on video tape or other various electronic media forms, or considered live television. Formats[edit] Television programming may be fictional (as in comedies and dramas), or non-fictional (as in documentary, news, and reality television). A drama program usually features a set of actors in a somewhat familiar setting. Genres[edit] Scripted entertainment[edit] Unscripted entertainment[edit] Informational[edit]

Super Mario (series) The Super Mario series is part of the greater Mario franchise, which includes other video game genres as well as media such as film, television, printed media and merchandise. Over 262 million copies of games in the Super Mario series have been sold worldwide, making it the best-selling video game franchise.[1] The first Super Mario game's gameplay involved jumping on enemies and moving to the right as the screen scrolled. The object is to progress through levels by defeating enemies, collecting items, and solving puzzles without dying. In the 2D Super Mario games, the player character (usually Mario) jumps on platforms and enemies while avoiding their attacks and moving to the right of the scrolling screen. 2D Super Mario game levels have single-exit objectives, which must be reached within a time limit and lead to the next sequential level. Super Mario 64 was the first 3D game in the series. Mario has been known for his jumping abilities since his early platform games.
