The World of Gamers: consoles Vs. PCs
Gamers all over the world are engaged in what they refer to as “gamning,” which basically means playing interactive computer games through the Internet and/or their personal computers. A computer game or video game is an interactive electronic game that entails interaction with a human user interface device including a keyboard, mouse, joystick, or infrared motion sensor. In this type of gaming, the player is required to select an option and interact with the on-screen “game characters” in a virtual manner. The interaction can include typing characters into text boxes, moving the cursor over an on-screen target, clicking, or hitting a given key. In some cases, the game also incorporates various methods of timing in order to achieve success in winning a game
There is a wide range of benefits associated with interacting with a fellow player or even another computer system online. First, many people find that it allows them to develop social relationships and develop real-world friendships that would otherwise not be possible. Second, many people find that they improve their cognitive ability while engaging in Gambling, leading to higher self-esteem levels. In addition, people who play a good deal of online gaming are able to overcome the mental conditioning that often limits their ability to make critical, creative decisions. And last, when players are engaged in certain types of virtual environments (think of the worlds in which “Mass Effect” and “World of Warcraft” are played), their ability to properly interact with others increases their creativity as well as increases their overall sense of satisfaction and accomplishment.
Although online games provide a great outlet for people to interact, they should always be played in proper environments where safety settings are in place. As noted, most popular massively multiplayer online role-playing games, such as “World of Warcraft” and “Call of Duty” involve some degree of interaction between players. And these highly interactive video games require players to designate a “leader” who can direct their fellow gamers; generally this leader is selected based on their level of skill and determination and is respected throughout the gaming community.
Another key aspect of massively multiplayer online role-playing games, especially in the case of “World of Warcraft” and “Call of Duty,” is that all players participate virtually. In other words, many games involve large numbers of people all participating virtually within the same virtual world. In doing so, players are able to interact with one another virtually through a map interface. For example, players can engage in heated conflicts within “WoW” by battling and trading items with one another or can go on raids together; once again, there are various leaders within WoW whose influence and power are largely derived from their abilities and status within the community.
Gaming consoles also provide an environment in which a variety of players can interact, developing social dynamics that could not exist outside of a game environment. Gamers who wish to challenge themselves and compete against friends may do so through consoles. Those who simply enjoy spending time interacting with others in a virtual environment will more than likely do so through electronic games. However, there is a difference between playing electronic games and participating in massively multiplayer online role-playing games. In the former, many participants take on the persona of their character and actually develop their ability to deal with and control their characters realistically.
This is true for “World of Warcraft” and “Call of Duty” as well as many other massively multiplayer online role-playing games. Gamers are given the ability to develop and enhance their skills, earning increased experience and leveling up their character over time in order to progress to new, higher level locations. Those who wish to level up their characters, earn rewards, and participate in world events are also free to do so with most console games. So, the next time you decide to play, choose wisely, choose the best platform, and play as much as possible!
