Game Changer in Nairobi

July 18, 2011 (Susan Wong) – With the annual E3 Expo, the world’s premier trade show for computer and video games, fresh in our memories, Nairobi and the East African region for that matter, finally has a new gaming hub of its own – Game Changer.

Game Changer, located in the newly expanded Junction Shopping Center, is a store with a library of video games unparalleled by any other store in East Africa.  Specializing in 7 video gaming consoles, and iPad and iPod downloads; the store is a gaming sanctuary for enthusiasts.

From your PlayStation to your Wii to your DS, at Game Changer you will find the newest and most popular games, and not to mention essential accessories that will improve your gaming experience.

Game Changer will be launching regular gaming challenges in the coming weeks, which will surely spearhead the gaming culture in Kenya.


Video Game Use

Introduced first in the 1970s, video games have been a popular leisure activity with a vast following of children and adults sin the late 1980s.

Since the 90s, some parents have raised concerns in regards to the increasingly violent content of video games and potential health problems that may arise from continued use, sparking a heated debate of the effects of video games.

Though the debate will surely continue, the gaming industry has stayed resilient and is as big as it has ever been.  The E3 Expo 2011 saw close to 50,000 visitors descend on the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Researchers have yet to provide conclusive evidence that video games are harmful to users.  Recommendations concerning video games must remain conservative and it is up to parents to provide guidance in the selection of games and daily usage in the child’s best interests.
