As someone who has been a fan of gaming since way back in the Sega Megadrive days, I cannot tell you enough how much I love the way in which modern gaming has changed the face of the industry. Chief among the changes that I have enjoyed the most is the combination of gaming and the internet. I know play the majority of my games on the internet, and my buddy Sammy Zherka and I host at least 3 game nights each week where we let our inner children out with some online gaming. If you love gaming and want to make the most of what the internet can offer then here are some ways in which you can do so.
As someone who lived through those awesome early nineties games such as Sonic the Hedgehog, Mario and Mortal Kombat, I love nothing more than reliving my youth and button bashing to those games. Since the appeal of retro gaming increased, so too did the prices of those old consoles and if you want to enjoy the best of retro gaming without paying modern day prices then head online. There are many websites which offer you the chance to play these games direct form your laptop or desktop without the need to download anything or pay a cent.
Around the World
One of the biggest benefits of online gaming is the fact that you can now play your favorite shoot-em-up, sports game or strategy game with people from all over the world. This ability to connect with the four corners of the globe completely blows my mid and it allows you to play FIFA with your buddy living abroad, Call of Duty in a team with someone form the Congo and a guy from Brazil or teaming up on Halo with a couple from Belgium. It is easy to connect to the internet using your console and this additional option to play across the world adds a whole extra level to gaming.
The gaming world has used the community power of the internet to create amazing games such as World of Warcraft and several more incredible internet-based games which create virtual worlds which you live within. These games are really changing what it means to play games and there are hundreds of thousands of people around the world who are using these games to blur the line between the reality and virtual reality. These games show just how powerful gaming can be and the technology which is used to create them is moving on each and everyday to allow people to live a second life through their game characters.
If you haven’t gotten involved with online gaming yet then there is no time like the present, this will add a completely new dimension to your gaming enjoyment and you will be able to see the power that moving technology can have on your favorite hobby.
