Computer games are often more powerful than console games because of early market releases of their external architecture^ and graphics cards.
Video games are made by developers, who used to do this as individuals in the 80's (Bedroom Coders), but now are almost always a large team consisting of designers, graphic designers and other artists, programmers, sound designers, musicians, and other technicians.
Games running on a PC are often designed with end-user modifications in mind, and this consequently allows modern computer games to be modified by gamers without much difficulty.

 Computer Games
A computer game is not necessarily a video game, or vice versa; for instance a text-based role-playing game could be played verbally by a blind person, which is clearly no longer a "video" game, and the first generation of video games, such as Pong, used dedicated electronic circuitry not even remotely resembling a computer.
Formerly, video games tended to need and use less computing power than computer games, but with the increasing power of video game hardware, that distinction is nearly erased, and many games are now produced for both computers and video game systems.
Video game manufacturers usually exercise tight control over the games that are made available on their systems, so unusual or special-interest games are more likely to only ever appear as games on general-purpose computers.

 Game Studies 0102: Cultural framing of computer/video games. By Kurt Squire
Since their inception, computer and video games have both fascinated and caused great fear in the politicians, educators, academics, and the public at large.
This example illuminates how the process of interpreting game play, of drawing analogies between symbolic representations in the game and their real-life analogs is one of active interpretation, and suggests that students might benefit from systematic explanations or presentations of information.
Much of the hype and hyperbole surrounding games and their potential impact on human behavior (whether it be fear about games’ impact on human behavior or hope that games are teaching students to think sharper or more quickly) rests on assumptions about activities developed in game–playing contexts transferring to new contexts.

 Computer and Video Games Come of Age
What people read about video games is that they are violent, they are sexist, they are responsible for some percentage of juvenile misbehavior, sometimes worse than misbehavior, and people become addicted to them and socially isolated as a result.
The three videos were a steer being slaughtered in a slaughter house, a monkey being killed and its brains served in a Chinese village, and facial surgery on a young girl whose face had to be split open and the skin drawn back.
What you read about video games both in the popular and scientific press is a sample of what we know and what has been done on this subject and it leaves you with a decidedly distorted impression, I think, of the uses and benefits of video games.

Although boys and girls can be equally skilled at using computers and computer games, boys are more likely than girls to choose to play with them, and children of both sexes consider both computers and computer games to be boys' toys.
The first group work under the assumption that girls and boys want something fundamentally different from video games, that it is possible to find out what girls want from market research and the best way of responding to this situation is to create girls-only or girl directed media that stand alongside more boy-centered media.

As for games with more traditional inputs, Sega had the mysterious gun fighting game 2 Spicy and the much anticipated and super goofy Die Hard Arcade EX available to play (more on that here), in addition to a hose of Japan-centric games and, of course, Virtua Fighter 5.
