A lot of people do not have the money to purchase computer games that they can play on their computer. This is when Online Games come into play. There are sites that you can go to and be able to play a variety of games. Some of the most common varieties that you can choose from include Action games, Adventure, Arcade games, Board, Puzzle Games, Poker, Casino, Card, Fighting, Shooting, Defense Games, Typing Games, Sport Games, and many other kinds of games.
There are sites that have free online games for toddles and young school children and there are others that will have more mature games for older children and then some for adults. Some site have all these types of games mixed in together so you will have to find games on the site that are close to your age and the type of games that you want to play. If you have children you might want to monitor what games site they are playing on because there are some online game sites where they have adult games mixed in with the kid games all on the same site as I mentioned above.
Action Games can be fun to play because they will test your speed and your reaction times. These games also include challenges, some puzzle solving, and may involve some violence.
Adventure games are sort of similar to action games but also involve one to explore, interact with other online game players, investigation, and can include fantasy games, science fiction, mystery, comedy, and horror games.
Arcade games can include those similar to what you will find in businesses and pubs. These games include air hockey, ping-pong, pool, pin-ball, and some racing games.
Board Games are games that include pieces that are actually moved from the board, placed on the board, to the right and left on the board to win the game. Come popular board games and they can also be found online includes Monopoly, Scrabble, Checkers, Chess, etc
Puzzle games are similar to board games but they contain solving a lot of problem solving skills such as word completions, patterns recognition, strategy, logic, and sequence games.
There are also games that you can choose to download onto your computer that you can play also. Most of these games come with a free trial such as a day free, 60 minutes free, and some are actually even free so you can keep them on your computer as long as you chose. If you do come across one that lets you download a free version you might have to purchase the complete game later. Most online games do not cost over $20. If I were you I would search another site first to see if you can find that game for free before downloading it.
