It is a bit of both. Video games have been made of popular animes, same as with games off of your favorite movies and shows, and animes were made of popular games. Video games are, just as the name implys, games that you play, but some, like pokemon (first known as pocket monsters), were later made into a children’s show. But the opposite also happens, for example spongebob is a children’s show on Nickolodeon and video games have been made of him. This is how the overlap. The diffrence lies in that you can play video games, but only watch animated shows. Not all video games are based on a show (Cooking mama, sly cooper, black ops, ect.) and not all animation shows have a game (Invader zim, Johnny Test, Chowder, ect.)
