The video game industry is one that has seen enormous growth in the past few years. With breakthroughs in technology and video graphics, playing a video game at home or at an arcade can make the player feel like he or she is actually in the game itself.

Each year, companies competing for the video gamer's dollar release many new titles. The Video Extravaganza is an opportunity for video game fans at Sam Houston State to see first-hand some titles on the market today.

The extravaganza, being held by the Program Council, will feature 18 titles either new to the market or unreleased yet. Screens will be set up to give those in attendance a chance to play the different games. The games range from sports titles such as "March Madness 2005," "NBA Live 2005," "NASCAR 2005" and others to titles such as "Mortal Kombat: Deception," "Golden Eye: Rogue Agent," "America's Army Special Forces" and many more.

"There will be a representative from EA Games, which is one of the leaders in the video game market," said Jeff Oribhabor of the Program Council. "People will get the chance to play games that aren't even on the market yet."

Oribhabor also said there will be game giveaways throughout the event.

The event is scheduled for today in the LSC Ballroom from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and there is no charge for admission.
