Top 45 Game Trends in February

From Charitable Gaming Networks to Supernatural Teenage Games

— February 20, 2016 — Tech
The top February 2015 gaming ideas seem to reveal that players and developers have a desire to defy convention. When looking at games themselves, this is evident in ones that bend and crossover genres, such as 'Downwell,' which reimagines a side-scrolling game in a vertical format, or 'Dangerous Golf,' which fuses elements of typical sports gaming with unexpected moments of adventure.

In terms of innovations that are reshaping gameplay include advanced equipment like the Teslasuit, which provides haptic feedback for virtual worlds, or the Krush Moveo simulation pod, which enhances experiences in virtual reality.

These February 2015 gaming ideas reveal that the next generation of entertainment will not only rethink the structure of a game, but also the equipment used to engage a player's senses.
