Online games are games that are played by people via the Internet and other interactive computer networks. These online games are played by the individuals sitting in one place or another, across the globe. Many of these games are free, while many others may require a particular amount of money to be won. Generally the free online games tend to be very much popular, as it helps them save a lot of their money while having fun and at the same time feel that they are playing with somebody close to their hearts.
An online game is also a virtual console game which is either wholly or partially played through the Internet or some other interactive computer network. The term “multiplayer” means that the players can interact with each other and sometimes form groups or communities as well. The “multiplayer gaming” phenomenon has reached almost all walks of life. Online games are especially popular among the young people who spend a lot of time on the Internet and other computer networks. Most people do not consider online games as real games, but the reality is that most online games have a certain amount of strategy behind them, which makes them somewhat like real world “gamers”.
However, the Internet has introduced a whole new era of personal information gaming or online games. This new breed of personal information games are focused more on the interaction between two or more computers or one player and sometimes more than one computers. It takes a lot of creativity to create a game that revolves around this concept. In many of the examples of this type of online games, there are a lot of personal information such as the names, addresses and telephone numbers of the players, which are often kept very private. This type of personal information gaming is usually found in online gambling and also in various forms of “dating” (such as online RPG’s and online casinos).
