New computer and video games can not only bring joy and excitement to everyone, but can also bring certain benefits and advantages. With the help of advanced and popular technologies, the gaming industry has grown and expanded rapidly over the years. The best deal of video games are available over the alternatives to eBay. If we are looking for a classification of video games, they are broadly divided into eight main categories:
They move fast and can cause a lot of violence. Action games are generally not suitable for children. These games fall into the “M” category (for adults). Examples are Halo, Star Wars, Jedi Knight and Enter the Matrix.
Adventures and role-playing games
They are usually not as graphic as action games and can take the player to surrealism and fantasy. Although violence often occurs in adventure and role-playing games, it is not as severe as violence in action games. Examples in this category are Borderlands 2, Final Fantasy, Legend of Mana and Billy Hatcher.
First person shooter
As the name suggests, it is a game in which the player treats the eyes of the character he represents and uses a pistol or shotgun to kill the enemy. Due to the violence associated with this type of play, it is not suitable for young children. Examples of such games are “Half-Life”, “Half-Life 2”, “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” and so on.
Construction and Management Simulation (CMS)
As the name suggests, in games belonging to this genre, players have to create, expand and manage fantasy projects and communities with very few resources. Examples of this are SimCity and Harvest Moon.
The focus is on strategy rather than violence, and the games are slow, giving the player time to think strategically, manage resources, and plan for victory. Now they are based on war, and therefore the violence is not complete. These games are not suitable for children. Some examples are Advanced Warfare I and II, Civilization V, and Crusader Kings II.
Simulation These are video gaming or computer games that simulate real-life situations in game settings. The three famous games in this category are Racing Simulator, Flight Simulator and The Sims. There are many games in this section to entertain children. Some examples of simulation games: Football Manager, Farming Simulator 2013, Sims and Evil Genius.
