The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has caused social gatherings to become nonessential, influenced restaurants to close down, and triggered movie theaters to shut their doors.
Due to this sudden shift in the world, a large number of people have suddenly disconnected from the glitzy glamor of Hollywood. Instead, they have found solace in the electronic entertainment of video games.
With new titles arriving on PC, consoles, and handheld devices, it has become easier for video games to appeal to a larger audience base. Since these titles no longer have to compete with Hollywood stars doing press or fight for popularity against new movies in the theaters, they are enjoying more attention from people who are looking to pass their time.
