FLASH GAMES - ADDICTIVE OR HEALTHY?
The title may be hinting at cigarettes at first, but what it implies is the fact that many parents draw a line between addiction to gaming and healthy gaming that is a necessity for their kid. By means of this article, we'll try to judge just what is actu

One can find an infinite number of games for access by all means possible. Be it the personal computer, the PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Wii, or any other popular gaming console, or the internet, games of all kinds – flash, children, design, cooking, sports, action, adventure, casino, puzzle, missions, fighting, wars, airplane fights – are available by the millions.
All of these titles are available online on the internet for access from one's computer as well. They're free to play and are only a few clicks away, should you wish to try one out. You no longer need to move somewhere else while having leisure time if you want to have fun.
Despite being smaller in size than actual console-based games, they provide a very similar game-play experience, thanks to the advancements in script optimization as well as graphics over time. Web users of all ages, particularly teenagers, have over time made such games a necessity. Titles available for online play hold more attraction for gamers because they tend o be highly realistic and can be played by a huge number of other players online, even if they're sitting continents apart.
This has been made possible through the internet and is now becoming very popular because it tends to make the game more difficult and exciting for the young audience. After all, who doesn't want to see their name at the top of the top scorers' list on the website? Everyone does, right? So almost every teenager who has internet access is familiar with a few titles and spends an hour or two each day gaming, practicing with others to get higher and higher scores every day. These games are a very good exercise for the young brain when it's tired from cramming books into it throughout the day.
The problem comes in when games begin eating into the time you spend in a day doing productive work. These games tend to build a very personalized digital world for every individual who plays them, and hence can cause harm if a person becomes too used to them. After all, becoming a billionaire with assets scattered all over the world won't be as easy in the real world as it is in the digital world, would it? It's not sensible to fantasize about such stuff and leave the realms of reality, but the teenagers tend to do that occasionally and that makes them suffer. Our advice is that one needs to make sure it's them who manipulate the game; not vice versa.
Free games may be great, fascinating, and educative and yet interesting, but they can be addictive too. Therefore, one needs to sort out their priorities and spend limited time each day on the PC for gaming. Free games can only get you so far in life and that too merely in the digital world. Therefore, it is best to keep both worlds parallel. Where kids cannot define what the limit should be in their case, the parents should decide that for them and make sure their order is implemented. As the saying goes, excess of everything is bad. Make sure the games designed for you to relieve your stress do not become a stress for you themselves.
