The public opinion on the effect and place of video games in society are that they are primarily a tool for recreation. However, further analysis of how certain computer hardware developers have responded to the increasingly complicated nature of video games has led to discoveries that video game development influences computer hardware directly. Innovations in computer hardware has direct implications in the fields of Machine Learning, Cryptography, and Parallel Computing. By finding profound applications of these technologies in modern day society, we can argue that the development of video games has led to tangible difference in society, albeit in a different sector than originally intended by video game developers.
