Fun can be a more important aspect of creativity than most give it credit for. If life was all work and no play we would end up like Jack from the Shining, and no one wants that. But gamers know, pick up and play has become a commodity these days. With most games costing too much and taking too long to learn and master, aint nobody got time for that. But we found the perfect (short-burst) work game, and we thought we would hunt a few others down and just make a list out of it. From Slither.io to Flow Free, here are some awesome, addictive, and mentallt effective free games you all need to try, stat.
We’ve all had those days…the clock just seems to stand still, and no matter what you do, it feels as if you are wading through a pool of jelly. It’s bad enough if this happens when you’re at work – with lots on your plate but with no motivation to get things done – but it’s worse when it’s a free day and you ought to be enjoying yourself.
You may have your phone or tablet to keep you busy, but sometimes, even those shiny gadgets can’t give you the satisfaction that you want. That’s when browser MMO games come in very handy. We know that MMO stands for “massively multiplayer online”, and cool name notwithstanding, these kinds of games really do tend to get your hooked. The end result? Time goes by without you noticing it. Indeed, you’ll probably want more hours in the day to be able to play more. But that’s a totally different story.
We’ve all had our doses of fun following dead authors, revolutionaries, and other celebrities on various social networking platforms. They may not be in this world anymore, but they live on, not only through their work, but also courtesy of witty people who took it upon themselves to take the persona of whichever celebrity.
For fans of Jane Austen, arguably one of the most popular authors of her era, social networking is nothing new. She already has a presence on Twitter, but this time, Jane Austen enters the social world via a different route: Facebook gaming.
How many hours did you
waste spend playing Guitar Hero, or one of its many versions? I know it is one of the video games that caught my attention – and held it – for a very long time. I had several versions of the game on the PlayStation 3 and the Wii, and even though I didn’t have a guitar controller for the latter, I still kept at it. And I am not alone in this, for sure. (I did have the special edition Aerosmith guitar controller for the PS3, though!)
While the games were a lot of fun, there was one big criticism about the game: it didn’t really teach players how to use a guitar in the real world. Sure, you still had keep the beat most of the time. And it was easy enough to pretend that you were a rock star. At the end of the day, however, you still couldn’t play real guitar for sh&t.
Finding the perfect gift for the geek in your life may be a difficult task, especially if that geek has everything he needs or wants. But if your geek can’t get enough of Star Trek (in spite of the several costumes he or she has in the closet for special occasions), then here is the best thing that you can get. Even if his or her birthday is not coming up any time soon, giving a gift for no reason at all is always a good idea.
Enter the new limited edition of the classic board game Monopoly. Star Trek Klingon edition. It really can’t get any better than that for Trekkies, can it?
