Who wouldn’t want to go back to those childhood days when it was all fun? Who wouldn’t want to roll in the mud, climb the trees and do all those pranks once more, the dream world that we created around us, filled with fun, laughter, and happiness. Games have always been an integral part of growing up. It is hard to find any person who had not played a game in his life. Of course, the nature of the games that we played evolved throughout the ages. The new buzz word in today’s world is X, associated with sports, adventure, and all the stuff.
The new age is aptly called the digital age, with all those gadgets and electronics that made our lives more simpler. As with games, they have rapidly evolved from being out in the garden to hi-tech games that are played in the comfort of our rooms or even between two persons sitting in two different continents! The advent of the Internet has shrunk the world so much that physical distance does not matter any more.
Online games are here to stay. No longer do you have to buy a specific game from the vendor and play. You can easily go to the website and play alone or form a group of friends from all over the world and compete with each other. The fun of playing with and against new friends, some of them who you must not have even seen, is just thrilling, isn’t it?
It is not just the guys who enjoy those mind wracking games, but girls have their own world of superstars and superheroes with whom they identify themselves. Lots of girls would have loved to be Nancy Drew for example, taking part in her adventure. The adventures of Kim Possible just brought all those adventures as a interactive video game, 6 parts, each part dealing in one adventure like kidnapping and her never ending confrontation with Doctor Drakken.
One more exciting part of the games is the simulator games. They put you in the cockpit of a fighter jet or inside a military tank or a submarine which enables you to use the controls and fight against your enemy. For the more feeble hearted, you can jump in the seat of a race car and drive in all the laps against tough opponents, enjoying real life sound and graphics which brings out a real-life experience.
Today’s kids are growing up with the Internet from an early age and they have access to loads of fun and entertainment online, which shows a drastic shift for the meaning of the term “Entertainment.”
