Hi visitors i have been literally giving u so much reviews about games(thats what everybody says but have given only 6 of them!) but i get most of the feedbacks as "Ur review is good but i dont know anything about games"!!!!?????

So this post is all to those non-gamers who wanted to know wat gaming is all abt....

Well gaming is all abt playing urself through a given mission or task with a given set of equipments and stuff which helps u in completing the mission.
Basically there are 2 popular type of pc games today and those r the action and strategy games.

Action Games:
An action game is a game that challenges a player's speed, dexterity, and reaction time. Action games often include tactical conflict, exploration challenges, and puzzle-solving, but these are not defining elements. Action games are the broadest and most inclusive genre in gaming, encompassing many diverse sub-genres such as first person shooters, beat-em ups and platform games. Basically even action-adventure games are present in which the player needs to solve puzzles and find out hidden paths in order to go on to the next level with action present in the game.

*First Person Shooters:
The First person shooter or also called as FPS is a action game type which shows the view of the game as viewed by the gamer playin the game.Some of the most famous examples of FPS are Medal of Honor, Call of duty, IGI, etc.(These are game names....)

*Beat-em ups:
The beat-em games are nothing but hand to hand combat games tat are takin against a wave of enemies either by hand or some melee weapons such as clubs, rocks, sticks, etc. Some famous examples of these types of games are Mortal Combat, Turtles, etc.

*Platform Games:
Platform games are nothin but games tat are
played on single platform with changing scenarios tat mostly depend upon the jumping tactics other than shooting and killin enemies in the game. Most famous platform games are Contra, Mario, Club fighters, Ninja, etc.

While the objective of an action game varies from game to game, it generally involves advancing through stages (or levels), eliminating hordes of enemies, and solving puzzles. Many games include one or more Bosses, often preceded by Mini-Boss. A Mini-Boss is usually the climax to a level or series of levels, with a Boss encountered either at the end of the game or periodically throughout the game, leading up to an "End-game Boss", whose defeat is the objective of the game.U must have witnessed these type of gameplay in platform games like Mario.....

But other action games such as Medal Of Honor, Call Of Duty, etc are war based games and the player is given a war field arena to battle with enemies with a limited source of weapons and thus the player has to complete task or mission given to him. These are shoot and kill games tat require ur quick hand co-ordination and eye movements all throughout the game screen.Usually these types of game are played either in Joystick or combining both the mouse and the keyboard.

Strategy Games:
Games tat require a strategic plannin and execution leading to a victory over a battlefield shown from a satellite view of the game world or map in which the player and the enemy battle for their majority place in the map. the one who gets the majority portion of the map by beating the other enemy with troops of his advancement wins the game and claims the territory and later like this a story mode is formed and further new maps are given for the gamer to play the game.

Eventually a minimum required resources for the player is given in the start of the game itself and further requirement of resources required by the player can be taken from the map in which the player plays. For eg:If a player needs wood for buildin houses he must find a tree in order to fulfill his required resource.

And in this strategy game a main city is formed which is know as the capital city and in the start itself a capital city will be given to u from which u can generate citizens for recruiting them in various works such as Food harvesting, Lumbering, Mining, Defending the capital by training in the Barracks(a bulidin for creating trained troops) etc.So a mission objective will be given to u and u have complete the objective in a given time. In most of the games the mission objective will be to capture the opponent territories land and defeat them. So in order to do this u got to defend urself from the opponents invasion and also in the same time create huge army of needed size to destroy the enemy.This is all wat strategy game is all abt------Strategic Plannin!!!!!!

Some of the examples of these types of games are Age Of Empires, Rise Of Nations, Empire Earth. Lord Of the Rings, etc.

So non-gamers if u still have any difficulty in understanding gamin pls post ur queries!!!!
Will be reviewing more....
