Games have been one of the best entertainers of people. Children love them, and so do people who are children at heart. Modern technology has invented gadgets for them to enjoy this pleasure. From time to time, these gadgets evolve into much better ones. From family computers, came Nintendo. From Nintendo came Play Stations and it evolved into PS2s then PS3s. Now we already have Nintendo Wii and PSPs. Let’s not forget cell phones, too! The list will just go on and on.
You might assume that only kids enjoy and adore playing these said applications, but you are mistaken. You can see people who are already “mature” having a grand time with these gadgets. Yet the most popular gadget among all ages is the cell phone.
The majority of the population of the world owns cell phones. The latest models even offer Internet access where the user can check their mail, download music and even download games. It is easy to download games via the Internet. A push of a button and you are off to having games through mobile download in your mobile phone which you can play anywhere and anytime. It is more practical to have games in your cell phones rather than having to bring an extra gadget for games alone. Examples are PSPs and DSs. These are just added baggage, but some people prefer bringing them altogether.
There are thousands of downloadable games, themes, ringtones, songs and other interesting files you can acquire. Google your desired game and just follow the link. Some games can be downloaded for free, but some are available for a fee.
Be careful though with downloading games. Just like in computers, you can acquire viruses especially if you are mobile downloading for free. Scan what you are about to download first, before you continue. It is better to be safe than sorry, right? Don’t be in a hurry to play, but think of the security of your gadget first.
Another caution, if you are a parent, check what your daughters or sons download. What they may be downloading may result to their poor academic performance or worse, poor morale. From time to time, check their phones, just for precautionary measures.
There are some games that are addictive too. When you get hooked with such games, you are falling in the trap of the game maker. Getting hooked with games will not give you any positive mark, it will just give you the opposite.
On the other hand, there are educational games as well. These games tackle simple subjects of Math, English, Science and History. An example is Bookworm, where your task is to form words from a list of alphabets.
As you have read above, the sole reason why games are invented is to entertain us. The educational games are a plus. They were not made for you to become dependent on them. Choose your games wisely, and avoid getting addicted to the games.
