The rise in online gaming over the past 14 years has given way to one of the most fascinating sub-cultures of the Internet age, allowing a gamer playing in Texas to go head-to-head with an opponent all the way over in the Japan. Also, the development of mobile gaming on phones and tablets has created an entirely new platform of entertainment, free from larger powers like Sony, Nintendo, and Microsoft. Granted, playing Snake on your old Nokia was pretty awesome back in the '90s, but 2014 has about 1,000 other games that can stand up to what your clunky Nokia had to offer.
