Electronic games that rely on the input of a human through an user interface. The idea of operating games electronically is old, but the first "pure" video game is considered to be Tennis For Two in 1958. Video games by virtue of their interactive nature have unique tropes associated with them, the Videogame Tropes. See also Choose Your Own Adventure for a literary precursor to modern video games; Pinball, the distinguished Arcade Gaming predecessor of video games; and Visual Novel for videogamelike works in the narrative style of literature.
