The requirements of the system are not just limited to only some computer systems, but form a part of all the games. No such game exists in this world that does not need any specific system requirements to run the game properly. Besides this, all the requirements needed by the game form a part of the device that a gamer must have.
On comparing, video games have lower requirements for the system as the game that is produced is limited to a certain device that it would be played on. Also, the developers of the game know about that certain system or the console on which their game would be played on.
Many of the game developers manufacture the gaming consoles of their own in order to lower the specifications of a system needed for the game to be played. However, it is not true that the game programs are limited to only these developers to be regulated. There is no such law that regulates the limitations of production of games and their development. There are so many game developers that are not associated with other developers who develop and market gaming consoles. The game developers see to it that the basic requirements are met from a system on which the game would be played.
The most common hardware that is being used to play with certain games is the personal computer.
