Digital Gaming – Three Ways to Play

Everybody loves the thrills of high-tech console games which, no doubt, use the most advanced techniques that allow us to step into that gaming world and be as if we actually lived there and are part of the dynamics. The technical aspect is a thing to appreciate because they speak for man and his unstoppable progress in seemingly every aspect of his being. Of course, the games themselves are engaging and well worth leaving the real world for, if only for a few minutes or hours. The problem with console gaming is the fact that these consoles are quite pricey which means it takes only somebody with at least above-average income to be able to afford one.

On the other hand, computer games offer nearly the same technical edge and fantastical worlds as what the consoles offer but at an enormously cheaper price. One simply needs a PC with the right specs and a game to install in the hard drive. This means that as long as the technical specifications of your machine are capable of running these games, then you get to play and be satisfied. Yet again, when you use a PC for gaming, you just might be facing a lot of issues such as incompatibilities and installation errors and all that. Still, perfect as it may sound, computer games just may have their own loopholes just as the ones run on consoles.

A third way to enjoy games could be to connect online and experience the same awe and magic as what console and PC games offer. When you talk of game diversity, online is not something you’ll find yourself being compromised. You can just go to a game developer’s site, find your game and wait a few minutes for patching, if it hasn’t been patched yet. Gaming sites will probably even have a more exciting diversity because it’s fairly easy for a game creator to have his newly developed game ready for download in the site.

This, or course, poses a great advantage over console and PC games which tend to limit your game choices. Online, there could be an endless stream of games you feel like exploring, from action to adventure and they’re all created with the technical superiority of Flash design software. But Then again, a limitation of online games is connectivity. When your connection is not consistent, you might have to be logged off automatically from the game each time the signal dies out and then logged in when it comes back. The downside is, aside from the interruption, you have to start the game over.
