Well if you play it on the computer, it is called a computer game. But it is also a video game.

From wiki:

"A video game is an electronic game that involves interaction with a user interface to generate visual feedback on a video device."

However, with the popular use of the term "video game," it now implies any type of display device. The electronic systems used to play video games are known as platforms; examples of these are personal computers and video game consoles.
