Types of Computer Games
Game Designers are artists that create applications and games for players to interact with. A game is usually a structured, non-linear form of play, sometimes used for fun or entertainment, and at other times used as a teaching tool. Games are very different from work, which are often carried out for remuneration only, and from writing, which is primarily an expressive expression of aesthetic or psychological elements. Game Designers often has an inborn creative instinct and enjoy coming up with new ways to express it in games. Some specialize in particular forms of media, such as Visual Concepts, Video Games, Web Design, Audio Software, or Role Playing Games.
There are many examples of how Game Designers has exercised their creativity over time. One of the most famous is chess, which was first developed by David Tata almost two thousand years ago. It has become so popular that there are now educational courses in schools and even businesses that teach how to play the game and build their own customized chessboards. Chris Crawford, who invented the game called Chucho Games, has also become a renowned teacher and author on this subject. He has written numerous books on the history of chess, its relation to psychology, business, art, literature, etc.
Another great example is playing the game called Sesame Street. This show, whose roots began on the HBO television channel in 1969, has become one of the most watched children’s programs in history. The characters include Alex the Sesame Street Guy, Hizzie, Mr. Squigly, Big Bird, Bill the Builder, Cookie Monster, and many more. There are many popular visiting team games between the two teams at the center of the set, called the Mardi Gras Cartons.
Modern day computer games have taken the world of board games to new levels of complexity and entertainment. Computer games can be played using a computer, or on a personal computer. There are many multiplayer online computer games as well as single player games. There are role-playing games (like Ultima), cooking games (like Farmville), and racing games (like Sim City).
Single players are usually controlled by the computer, where the players take turns. If anyone lands on “win” after three minutes, they win the game. If any of the two teams lands on “loses” after three minutes, they lose the game. There are no teams in these games, but instead, each person is assigned an avatar, or role, and that person can play the game in one of several ways, depending on the type of avatar they have chosen.
Computer games have changed the way people play. They can be played by anyone with a computer who wants to play. The interaction between players is easy because the computer is actually taking care of everything. Instead of having two teams battling it out for victory, they are given tasks to do throughout the course of the game and are allowed to collaborate with each other, working together to beat the competition.
