A few months ago, I blogged about three types of games you should try. I recommended that one should play classic games, simulation games, and educational or puzzle games. These type of games stimulates the brain which eventually lessens the early onset of Alzheimer’s disease – a brain disorder that slowly erases our memories and the capacity to think and function.
This is the reason why I still play games even with my age right now. I am already 42 and I still enjoy playing games. Well, I don’t enjoy fast-paced games anymore but I like playing more classic and puzzle games just like I mentioned before. And most of the time, I play online games more than brick-and-mortar games. Not that I don’t like them, but I have been doing online work for the longest time that somehow online games are the ones that are most convenient for me.
Here are other fun online games that I have been playing lately…
BATTLESHIP GAME. Though this is an online game, I liked this game way before. I played it when I was in high school. I played this game with my cousins in Manila. It is a guessing game for two players. It is usually played with a board with grids and pegs on it. But with the online game, you don’t need the board anymore and you can play alone against an A.I. (artificial intelligence) with basically the same rules.
HIDDEN OBJECT GAME. Just like its name, the hidden object game’s premise is to find hidden objects in the picture. You will get bonuses if you find all the objects in the shortest possible time. I have been playing this game more than the other games because I use this type of game in my class. I teach online and these hidden object games are easy and fun to do with the students.
CROSSWORD PUZZLE GAME. This seems to be the hardest of the three. If you want to squeeze your brain cells, this type of game is the one you should be doing. It will make you think really hard and even makes you learn new things.
There are other games on the site I am playing. You should check it out if you want to take a break. It has solitaire if you are into card games. It also has the connect 3 games or tile-matching video games like Candy Fiesta and puzzle games like Zuma Balls.
Well, games are not bad. It has some perks that is why I let my children play as well, but just like anything else, too much of anything is always bad. So, play! Play moderately!
