It's like Christmas morning for gamers: The E3 Expo in Los Angeles, where the latest and greatest gaming gadgets get their public introductions. Things like games that allow you to take on the role of computer hacker, changing downtown Chicago traffic lights on a whim or snooping on some stranger on the street.
FOX News Radio's Chris Hoenig recaps what all is blowing up the blogosphere this year:
FOX on Tech.
These are not the video games you grew up with.
(Taylor) "Folks love to play games in different ways."
Meaning those old computer-animated characters are replaced with real-life actors and actresses.
(Taylor) "If it has a screen, chances are folks can play a game on it."
Like Microsoft's new app turning your smartphone or tablet into a game controller...
And Nintendo's new Wii-U, which supports two controllers that include built-in touchscreens.
And Entertainment Software Association Vice President Rich Taylor says the person holding that controller is changing, too.
(Taylor) "One of the largest growing segments are women over the age of 18."
...Actually surpassing boys under the age of 17.
