I am doing a project for my math class in which I have to choose a topic and connect math concepts to it, and I chose video games. Possible concepts: Quadratics, vectors, probability, trigonometry, statistics, etc. I know this is probably a long shot but anything helps. In what ways is math connected to video games? Or, if you think this is a terrible topic to write a 6 page report on, please tell me.

This is highly probable. Or rather significantly more likely than probable.
