How would digital signals help make a video game more enjoyable?

Well, a good example of a game that has digital signals and has very good graphics is Madden 16. Madden 16 has some of the best graphics and makes you feel like it's a real football game. It allows you to play with your friends and see who wins the game. So, it seems pretty real when your team is playing against another team. As you can see in the picture to the right.

Which one's better for the DIS?

Digital signals will be the best choice to use for the video game. I say that because digital signals have better graphics and they are faster. So that makes the digital signals have a better quality. And customers would enjoy and prefer that video game. It would seem more appealing. On the other hand, analog is the total opposite. Analog signals are slower and can't have better graphics because analog signals are continuous and cannot create different patterns like digital signals. That's why I think that digital signals would be the better choice for the DIS.
