3 Forms of Gaming You Haven’t Enjoyed Yet
As technology has grown, talented teams have created new forms of entertainment. We no longer sit around analogue television sets, turning the dial, as these were phased out more than a decade ago, reports Digital Spy. We can stream thousands of TV shows and movies on our laptops and phones, we can play multiplayer games with hundreds of other people, and we can listen to music from a range of genres.
However, with all these developments, there may be forms of gaming that you haven’t actually come across yet. Your new favorite hobby could be out there, just waiting for you to discover it.
Traditional gaming allows you to sit in front of a screen and enjoy your game. With virtual reality or VR gaming, that screen is put right in front of your face and you enjoy the game in first-person. It can make you feel as though you are right there in the environment, whether its climbing to the summit of Mount Everest, fending off a shark attack, or taking part in a heist, these games give you a new way to play through interactive experiences.
There is a good chance that you won’t have played a VR game, though. An article by smallbiztrends.com reports that just 5% of North America own a VR headset. To play VR games effectively at home you’d need a high-quality games console or a powerful PC. There are VR game arcades, however, and these provide an affordable way to try them out.
Strategy games come in many forms, from the latest console games, to more traditional games such as roulette and blackjack. With the rise of online casinos, you can now learn how to play some of the classic table games on your laptop or mobile phone and become a strategy pro from the comfort of your own home. You can even win money online by choosing one of these options: free spins on popular slot games, and deposit bonuses. You don’t need a huge budget to try these out, as regardless of your bankroll bonus.ca have suitable offers for you.
In terms of new releases, the much-anticipated Age of Wonders: Planetfall is set to be released in August this year. Here, the strategy aspect of the game is a little different to your classic games, in that you must strategically use diplomacy to advance your faction. Age of Wonders is the fifth installment in this popular series and will be available on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and Microsoft Windows.
“Choose Your Own Adventure” Games
First published in 1979, there are more than 180 “Choose Your Own Adventure” books, allowing readers to choose how the story develops. Publisher, Bantam, may have discontinued the titles in 1999, but video game developers have taken the idea of controlling your own story and run with it. Gaming sites such as cheatsheet.com list the best adventure games, include those by Telltale Games, the developers behind The Walking Dead game, as well as The Wolf Among Us. These might not be just like the Choose Your Own Adventure games you remember, but they are a great take on the idea.
New forms of gaming are popping up all the time. By keeping up with the latest technology news, you can stay ahead of the trends.
