There are not too many better ways of whiling away the hours than playing a video game. Okay, that might sound nerdy, but don’t reject it out of hand just yet. Regardless of your age or your gender, there will be a game in your life that you love, like Super Mario Kart or Donkey Kong. And, just because you are older, it doesn’t mean that you can’t unleash your inner child anymore. If you want to regress back to your childhood, here are the games that will allow you that privilege. Be careful, though, because some of these games are extremely addictive!
- Angry Birds
If you don’t know the premise of Angry Birds, here’s a short synopsis. You use birds with special powers to destroy the defenses of the pig army. Yes, it doesn’t sound like a game that you would like, but it is very hard to put down once you start. In the beginning, destroying the pig army is easy enough, yet the game gets harder as you go and becomes, even more, addictive. If you don’t believe it, just take a look at the millions of people that have downloaded the game. Since the game came out in Android form, it took 2 million downloads in its first week.
- World Of Warcraft
Surely you have heard of WoW? Again, this is another game that is stigmatized by the geek community, and again it is another ridiculously addictive game. The premise is quite simple, although there is more to it than Angry Birds. It is a role playing game where you guide your character through the different realms, building your skill as you go. If you fancy a crack, you can download World of Warcraft (WoW) at SEAGM.com and try it for yourself. But, to become a part of the online community you have to take it seriously. There is no room for amateurs in WoW!
Bebbled is a game where you have to drop gems on gems of the same color to mine away the resources. If the gems build up too much, you lose. However, the more gems you mine away, the higher your score. In a lot of ways, Bebbled resembles Tetris. However, there are a lot of subtle differences, from the graphics to the complexity. So, if you are a fan of Tetris, you should give it a try.
- No More Kings
Are you a fan of chess? If the answer is yes, No More Kings is the game for you. All you have to do is find a way to put the king in checkmate by taking the pieces around the main man. When you take a piece, you become that piece, so it is not as easy as you may think. And, as the rounds go on, the task gets much harder. This game is a real brain teaser that is as educational as it is entertaining.
The above are an eclectic mix of games that should suit everyone, from the chess masters to the people who love blowing stuff up!
