The video game market has become a multi-billion dollar industry. The improvements in graphics and technology have made the in-home gaming experience more fun. And enhancements such as the Kinect and Wii have made gaming more interactive. But there are still limitations to creating a genuine experience that feels real. So where can people go to get an interactive gaming experience? Some have turned to paintball, but that can be painful. Plus the equipment is expensive, which makes the barrier to entry for new players fairly high. More recently, consumers have discovered a different option: tactical laser tag.
Tactical laser tag is an industry that’s only a decade old. It’s a marriage between paintball and traditional indoor backlight laser tag, combining the strategy of the former with the painless play of the latter. Unlike traditional blacklight laser tag, tactical is not focused on individual scores. Rather, the games are all based on a team objective. This promotes more teamwork and strategy, similar to what you’d expect from an online cooperative video game. It creates a better version of objective-based first person shooter games that are so popular in the market.
