Video games are still all the rage. In a sector that increases with time, consumer trends serve as an underlying base for whether investors should buy into the market.

Here are three things to consider. First, a company that can take advantage of a growing trend of mobile and online gaming is king. Second, a strong pipeline is very important. Finally, consistent profits through digital subscriptions help companies attain better revenue.

In the video-game space, Zynga doesn't fare so well. But companies such as the Chinese game maker Changyou.com, which makes popular online games, and the more traditional gaming company Electronic Arts, remain champions.
