Video Games $43 Billion Dollar (USD) Industry

The video games industry is now a $43,400,000,000 (that is billion United States Dollar) industry. That is higher than the movie theater industry at $ 41,700,000,000 (billion United States Dollars) or the streaming media services industry at 2,800,000,000 (billion United States Dollars. That is an 18% increase over 2017. The video games figure does not even include digital sales. Some of the top games of last year were Red Dead Redemption 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Super Smash Brothers Ultimate, Mario Kart 8, Battlefield V, Super Mario Odyssey, Call of Duty: WWII, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Party and Pokemon: Let's Go Pikachu. All according to the Fortune website video titled "Americans spent a ton of money on video Games in 2018".

It is amazing to see how far video game sales have come. I have picked up Call of Duty Black Ops 4, Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu, Super Smash Brothers Ultimate and Battlefield V last year 2018.
