By the end of the 20th century, the computer gaming industry already was one of the largest entertainment industries. Together with the movie industry, it attracted large investments in research in computer graphics, among other areas of computer science. As a parallel line of development, military and flight simulators also received huge investments. These simulators are akin to entertainment games in terms of their technical requirements.
