Games, particularly computer games, have become very popular today. A game is basically a structured kind of play, normally undertaken for fun or entertainment, and occasionally used as an educational instrument. Games are quite different from work, which typically is done for remuneration, and also from fine art, that is more often an expressive expression of aesthetic or political themes. The two types of games-active and passive-can be categorized under simulation and problem-solving, respectively.
Active games are competitive games; for example, chess, billiards, backgammon, and air hockey, while passive games are those with no interactive component, such as card games, reading books, watching television, or doing nothing. Some genres of games fall into both categories, while others overlap. For instance, board games, card games, word games, musical instruments, cooking, racing, sewing, gardening, card-game matches, arcade games, etc., belong to the active category. Games such as the classic Solitaire, Clue, and Backgammon, are passive. A genre of games, which includes Chess, Candy Land, pass the time, cooking, fishing, motorized roller coasters, and so on, falls under simulation.
The subject of games has become very detailed over the past decades, due to the proliferation of computer technology and the increasing sophistication of gaming hardware. Computer and video games require specialized software in order to run; and this software is designed by game designers who use a very particular language. The main article focuses on the most common types of GAMES. Not all GAMES require high-end computers and video game console. Games use a variety of lower-level languages, but the primary language for GAMES is English, although many countries also use English as their primary language.
There are five main genres of GAMES: Strategy Games, Card Games, Arcade Games, Children’s Games, and Personal Computer GAMES (also called PC GAMES). Strategy Games is based around a clear mission or goal. Often players work to complete one line of defense, then move on to another area of the board. They may attempt to destroy all their opponents before they reach a certain number of health. Card Games requires players to draw cards, making strategic combinations that will ultimately lead to the destruction or drawing of specific cards.
Board Games requires no real skill, except perhaps on the basis of what type of cardboard pieces are used. However, basic math skills are usually required in order to play a simple game like Monopoly. tokens are used instead of real money, although sometimes real money is used in children’s and arcade board games. The main article deals exclusively with board games. Computer GAMES, also known as computer games, are either text-based or pictorial. They are played on personal computers or through networks, with scores being calculated using a random number generator.
Gambling games rely on luck, while most other GAMES rely on a player’s ability to think logically and efficiently. Gambling games are usually internet-based and deal with goods such as lottery tickets, bingo, slots, or video poker. Although many of these products can be purchased for gambling purposes, they can also be bought for recreation purposes, such as with a computer game program. For this main article, we will be discussing solely board games.
