National Video Games Day is observed annually on Sept. 12. (Its cousin day, National Video Game Day, is celebrated on July 8 each year.) Video game players across the United States enjoy this day with much pride and enthusiasm. From their earliest days, video games have transformed into something more than just a 2D interactive experience – transcending use cases and becoming an industry on its own. National Video Games Day is a day to celebrate this new-ish pastime! So grab a friend, a couple of controllers, and sidle up to your favorite gaming console.
