Senior player

Posted on Mar 14, 2012 in Online Games

Online browser games? What is it? – This is my grandmothers question she once asked me. In fact it was about a year ago, she was then seventy-five years old. Can you imagine? No, I am not upset that she did not know what it is, I am impressed by her curiosity! She asked because she heard my conversation with parents, who claim that I play too much skill games. After her question, their stopped focusing on me – we were all to shocked. I explained, even showed what online browser games are, and she even made some scores. She enjoyed it so much, that after some days she started attending computer and Internet using course for seniors at local University. She is now playing skill games better than me (not amazing, I have to work and she is retired) and she says that she has met a lot of new friends on the course. She enjoyed it so much, that now she is at the university more often than real students. I thing it is good that some old people like to develop themselves even in Autumn of their lives. I am also thankful for those people teaching them, because now I have shared language with my Grannie, even though still can not communicate with my parents.I want to be such senior (if i will be alive around my seventies).

Many people confuse this two terms, so we decided  to explain the differences between them. Online games can be define as games that we play by using the Internet. They can range from simple text based games to games involving complex graphics, special effects, music soundtrack and virtual communities consisting of players from all over the world. As we see, online games are not only technology that allows players to play but also online communities, making online games a form of social activity. During last years they have become more popular because of development in Java and Flash areas and due to the fact that nowadays access to the Internet is common, that most of the people have it. Online games can be divided into:
- strategy games,
- cross-platform games,
- browser games,
- Massively multiplayer online games (MMOG).
On the list above we can find browser games – a computer games that are played over the Internet using a web browser. The same as online games can be single-player or multiplayer. However, among browser games single-player are more common and among online games on the contrary multiplayer. Another difference between them is that, online games can be played over some form of computer networks, not only on the Internet like browser games do. Moreover browser games are often played in more frequent, shorter sessions compared to strategy online games. I hope, that now most of You will understand the differences between online and browser games.
