Iranian Video games invade imaginations in the East

The culture of image is interestingly booming in Iran.This Eastern country knows how to feedback the imagination of its people through image amasingly .Yesterday , it was Iranian cinema beautifully highlighted by Abbas Kiarostami and Mohsen Makhmalbaf and this cinema is still growing in quality and quantity ,and no doubt it has been successful to invade world theatres and at home,and now video games are doing the same thing with new imposing digital conceptions for example trying to tackle great figures and heroes of persian era in order to introduce them to video game lovers .

This is no doubt having great impact on the Iranian user of this new means called video games especially on children that have begun to get interested to buy Iranian products rather western ones.Aziz aged 14,a Tehran born student states that Iranian technology is doing well as far video games ,because apparently local artists have produced games with high quality in sound and pictures and this is excaltly what children are interested to play with.

It is said also that a new market has been imposed in the market to young people especially in the arab world.This means Arabs might soon produce their own video games targetting young imaginations whose classic heroes could be Saladin ,Omar Ibn Khattab and comtemporary heroes like Mehdi Ben Barka ,Abdelkrim Khattabi, Omar Mukhtar and others .
