I have to confess that I have a passion for online games. I spend a lot of time on the Internet every day, but if I’m online simply surfing for too long, I start to feel like my mind is turning to mush. To jump-start the brain cells and put myself through some mental calisthenics, I’ll play a few online games during the day. Sometimes I might play for an hour or more, but there are plenty of games out there that are quick and easy to play when I just want to play for ten or fifteen minutes.
There are several reasons I prefer online games, but the most obvious is simply that I don’t like downloading too much stuff to my home computer. There’s only so much storage space on the family computer, and I don’t want to take up too much space that would be better for family photos and the like. I also like the impressive selection of online games you can find now for both PCs and Macs. You can play online games that have sound quality and graphics that are just as good as the best games on Xbox or PlayStation!
I’m partial to games that challenge my memory or require good observational skills. Hidden object games and mystery games are two favorites that stimulate my brain and give me a sense of accomplishment, but I have to confess I also love the pure pleasure of shopping games and the fantasy you can find in romance themed games. Role playing online games are also a treat because I can pretend to be someone else for a while without having leave home or compromise my real life. It’s always a great escape to start up an online game and forget about my cares for a few minutes.
