Online games target group

Posted on Feb 21, 2012 in Browser Games, Online Games, Skill Games

You probably know that there are plenty of online browser games in the Web, but do you know why? I must say that it is great unknown for me to. Somebody must be very bored to create so many free, colorful skill games with no actual content. People, get a job or maybe – get a life! I do not thing that with any social life you will be able to produce so many trivial games. You may ask – ok, but why is he so negative today. I am, because I spent two hours of my precious (haha) day at work looking for some game which will be attention worthy. I found dozens of games – but none of them was worth playing for longer than once. I dressed up barbie, play with some pink dog, did some strange pictures – generally awful. Where are the times of pacman or snake – simple but skill games – my favourite browser games. Nowadays you will have to face para3D games full of ugly colors, but without any real chilling content. I do not know how about you, but I expect, that game which I will play during my working hours will make me relaxed and able to face my boss or stupid tasks I have to do every day. But no, there are hundreds of bored programmers who are ambushed to create some illogical stuff for retards or really small children without mouse-using ability. I beg you, intelligent IT-crowd , create online browser games for business people – they are your main target responders.

Learning languages by online games

Posted on Feb 21, 2012 in Browser Games, Online Games, Skill Games

There are many methods of learning languages. We attend to extra curricular language classes, we listen to audio-books, we do exercises but now there are also online browser games which enable learning languages online. Many people consider this method as very useful and easy. You don’t have to buy books, cd or other stuffs, you just have to search in your browser for game which will interest you. There are zillions of online games to teach us spanish, english, french, italian. Everyone can find something for themselves. Sometimes even skill games are combain with learning languages. This method is very successful because we play, have fun and simultaneously we learn vocabulary and grammar.

As an example we can take online game English of the Dead. Can you combine learning English with killing zombies? This game isn’t just about killing zombies but also we have to know the English vocabulary. Just imagine situation like this. You play and on the top of the screen appears zombie. He is accompanied by a string of Japanese characters, which is translated below into English. However, there are some letters missed. You have to quickly figure out what is the right word and enter the correct form. Then zombie is dead- apparently he is impressed with our knowledge – in addition screaming in agony word you just typed. This is just one example of a game. But all over the Internet you can find other also as unconventional as that one but also more simple and just about learning language.

There are always level of difficulty to choose, range and category of vocabulary.

Great thing about those games is that you can play them many times until you will learn. In contrast to workbooks that you can fill only once, online games can be played unlimited number of times.
