How The Internet Changed Games Forever


Does anyone remember those times when everyone would play board and card games with friends and family at least once a week? Well, those were some nice times and people would gather up to play Rummy or Monopoly for fun. Although those were some fun times, the internet came and changed things forever.

Board Games

It’s kind of hard to believe, but now you can play almost anything on the internet. Some board games have complex rules and require multiple people to play. Well, now you can do that with strangers and for free. You can also invite your friends in most online board games.

Cards against humanity is a great game and it can easily be played on Xyzzy’s site. I had a great time with my friends and laughed a lot. You want to play some checkers? That’s also possible. There are also many Monopoly games on steam for free.

Card Games

I have played a lot of card games when I was younger. From family friendly games like Hearts or War to gambling card games like Poker or Blackjack. Well, the internet came again to save the day. You can basically find a site for every card game you can think of and you can either play against real players, or against AIs.

Moreover, there are many online casinos that offer these kinds of games, so you won’t have problems finding interesting card games. I personally like to play Blackjack from time to time.

Casino Games

Even though cards can be put in this category, I chose to put them separately since they can be simple multiplayer games.

Of course, we cannot mention gamble games without talking about fruit machines. Slots were played on physical machines and they are still played like that in many casinos, but some people don’t have the time to go in a land-based casino to do that. So the internet made it possible to play online slots like Book of Ra and Sizzling Hot free of charge and instantly. You also have many slot games to choose from, which makes it even more interesting.

There are also games like Roulette, which may be harder to replicate on the internet, but you can also play Roulette games on the internet without any problems.

So basically, every game you have previously played physically, now you can play on the internet. You can access a great variety of games instantly and without any problems. It might have taken the social element out of the “game”, but these days time is precious, so it might be better this way. In any case, the internet has truly changed games and how we play them forever.
