Be it recreation or work, every aspect of the average person’s life has gained momentum at the dawn of twenty-first century; with no visible signs of slowing down. Much of this pace can be attributed to technology. The technology that continues to make all jobs increasingly easier for everyone has enabled them to live life on fast-forward. The bright side of the picture, however, is the fact that it is not just work that has been speeded up; online games have been delivering entertainment to the average user much quicker than it was attainable back in the ’90s. Ever since the merger of the internet and gaming, entertainment has always been a few clicks away. There is no moving out of the house, travelling to gaming zones or malls to get a taste of your favorite game anymore. All you need to do is to make an account on your favorite online gaming portal, and gain access to a plethora of choices. One can go as far as to say that gaming has redefined fun for many, regardless of age group and gender.
Games for girls, a genre practically unheard of back in the 90s, is fast becoming a force to reckon with for all developers. A developer is now expected to make as many fashion designing, modeling, cooking and house designing games for girls as he is to design an action or sports games for the boys out there. Girls can get proper knowledge about the world of fashion through popular titles available online that give the players option to dress up their own doll and get points for it. Tutorials are offered and guidance made handy, and therefore games like these, continue to gain popularity among young girls across the globe. Such games are constantly helping girls on different areas of life as many genres available for them are interlinked, and offer to actually train these young girls for later life in addition to providing them quality entertainment.
Boys of course, are in no way behind girls in demanding for games designed to cater to their addiction for competitive games, multi-player racing, strategic and storyline based games, first and third person shooter games and sports games. Developers churn out hundreds of new titles every day, in the hope to deliver the perfect game for all the young boys out there. The boys’ preference varies a lot, and therefore each genre designed for them is almost equally popular on every online gaming portal. Be it Mindjolt or Stick Sports, all major online gaming portals see thousands logging in every day to take a break from the monotony of their lives and enjoy playing games online. That’s instant fun for you!
Studies have pointed to the fact that many children who play games at this age can go on to recognize their own talents, which in turn greatly assists them in choosing a career for themselves. Now that children and parents both acknowledge the importance of playing games for a certain amount of time alongside studies, games are all set to get more and more popular in their online form, thanks to the easy accessibility and the balance of economy and entertainment. After all, if games can help them make right decisions, discouraging gaming is doing injustice to a kid.
