The Appeal of Online Games

My title was going to be "On the appeal of online games", but I've been doing that a lot recently. So it's just this.

I love online games. I love them. I can't get enough of them. But what, I ask myself, is the appeal?

Well, several things, I suppose.

The first is their variety. Very rarely are any games the same. You can play tons of different kinds of games in one day. Instead of having to play one shooter over and over, you can play tons of puzzle games, action, adventure, etc. As I blog I'm also playing Warbears (thanks to Jesse for showing it to me). It's hilariously fun!

The second is how instead of being made by adults trying to make money, they're made by kids trying to impress others. The cost is free, another benefit. You can also converse with the author easily using a system of comments and such.

The third is it's free. I already told you that.

The fourth is time-saving. I don't have to find the CD and load it, I can just go on the web.

Alright well I have to finish my game and eat lunch, so I leave you with some links for games...



Well, that's all for now.

Other fun online game: Motherload. Basically, you drive around in this little tank-thingy, mining Mars for mineral deposits. Very fun. Link is:
