Online Games Designed For Interaction With Real Friends


Online games designed specifically to allow the player to interact with his true friends are known as social games. These games are usually quite simple and many people play them as a way to relieve boredom. However, there are also games that are complex, fun and especially designed for gamers who take their games seriously.

You can easily play social games on your computer or mobile phone. When you play them on your PC, you will need a game console. With the advent and popularity of social networking sites like Facebook, Orkut, Twitter and Myspace, these games have become more and more popular. Now you can get different types of social games. They can range from Massive Multiplayer Online, or MMO as they are commonly known, games involving thousands of players to Java or Flash based games.

However, most of these games aren’t meant for serious gamers. Rather they are designed for casual gamers who are looking to play something to while away their time. Nonetheless, these games are quite good, but they can end up being addictive and a person spends more time playing them than he or she would like.

Online networking sites seem to have given new life to online games, especially those hosted by the sites. The basic goal of these games was to allow the player to connect with real life friends, the ones he would socialize with in his personal life. However, now the members of these networking sites are using them to play with anyone on their network, whether it is a true friend or an acquaintance passing through online. There seems to be a lot of competitive spirit among players who want to perform better than other players.
