Games to Play and Why You Should Consider Playing Them
We all know that human beings have been playing games since time immemorial, and that it is only natural for people to play such games during their leisure time. Today we have games available online which provide a good chance for people to enjoy their free time as well as learn something new. Here’s a list of some of the more interesting games available:
Golf: It is no surprise that golf is one of the most popular games around. From the ancient days, it has been a game that required expertise on the part of the players. In the modern graph, those who are interested in studying the game can observe that most games were played in the Paleolithic Period, dating back from about 2.5million years ago. About 10,000 years later, sports started being played regularly in the ancient villages of East Africa, which made the game world wide.
Skill games: These are very simple, but also highly competitive games. Most of these are solitaire games where there are only two players, with only one objective. The common experience is that the player who manages to solve the game is considered to have ‘completed’ it. Some other examples are word games like English and numerical games. They are simple enough so that even children can start playing.
Sports games: Now, if you want to participate in sports then you need to be aware of rules. A good example would be baseball. The rules may differ depending on which sport you are playing in, but one thing that remains common among them all is that players are required to wear protective clothing ( MLB players do not wear elbow and wrist pads, so they are more prone to accidents) and use appropriate equipment (baseball gloves are long and made of rubber). The rules governing sports games are designed in such a way that the participants are not forced into dangerous activities, and so the chances of injuries and even death are minimal.
Physical games: There are many games involving physical activities where you are required to use your brainpower. You might love playing chess, but it is better to take a class instead of just sitting at your desk playing whenever you feel like. Another example would be card games, in which you have to develop strategies and work your luck. Some of them include soccer, volleyball, hockey, baseball and football.
Strategy games: Strategy games usually have you playing against opponents who have mastered the game rules and try to outsmart you. The strategy here is to eliminate as many opponents as possible. One popular game is ‘gamification’, where you are given a number of tasks to complete within a certain time frame. You are then judged by how well you have done based on how many tasks you have completed within a given time. Again, one popular strategy game is ‘domino’ where you are given a goal, make sure you complete all the goals before the time expires and you will become the dominator. There are many more, such as poker and trivia games where the winner depends on who knows the most about the game rules and the way it is played.
