As time progresses and consumers become more difficult to entertain, video games are poised to become the next main source of entertainment. This is slowly becoming a reality, as seen with the gaming trends of 2013.

This past year saw a wave of unabashed gamer pride from the least expected places, with high-fashion cosplay photo shoots and high-end video game pixel art taking games to completely new territory. Further reflecting a new, more open attitude toward video games, pieces such as cellphone-enabled laser tag and video game-inspired board games prove that gaming is no longer just for the basement-dwelling, Mountain Dew-chugging teenager. The gamer of 2013 looks much differently than expected.
