When is National Video Games Day? Video Games Day is July 8. National Video Games Day is September 12

National Video Games Day celebrates popular video games that stormed onto the market and changed the way you and your kids play games. From Atari and Nintendo to Xbox and Wii, video games provide all too many hours of playing time. Video game consoles originally displayed the games on your television set. Now, video games are also played on iPods and Tablets.

In Grandma and Grandpa’s day, they had stick horses for toys and playtime. Today kids (big kids and little kids) have an enormous array of video games to play. Before you get tired of one game, another one hits the market.  

Our extensive research into this special day discovered two separately distinct dates. Also, both dates for this special day refer to it as Video Games Day and National Video Games Day. Based on our research results, we give the edge to September 12th as National Video Games Day. Lucky gamer that you are, you get to celebrate two video game days.
