Free Online Games And The Economy

The connection between free online games and the economy was more apparent in 2008 when the suffering economy influenced an upsurge in free online gaming by 19 million players. This was reported by comScore in January of this year. They also said that the time passed by playing online games went up by 42%. ComScore went onto say that the actual time spent playing online games grew by 1.2% from December of 2007 to December of 2008.

According to Josh Smith at Wallet Pop casual flash games and MMORPG games like Second Life had a large increase in playing time; Second Life had an increase of 45% in September of 2008. An MMORPG is a kind of computer role-playing game in which a huge number of players participate, meshing in a virtual world.

The online free gaming sites that had the most increases in December according to the Los Angeles Times were yahoo Games 20%, EA Online 21%, Disney Games 13%, Wild Tangent 74%, and Addicting Games 17%.

So while the economy continues to have problems, online display ads have seen a large increase in exposure and this is a happier spot in the economy. Of course, the reason is that people are getting their minds off of their troubles. This is similar to what happened during the depression when going to the movies was cheap and people used movie watching as an escape route. While the display ads at online free game sites are doing well, the buying of computer games is down.

So what does this mean for gamers? You have many more compadres in the game forums, your numbers have gone up significantly, and the number of free online games could grow giving you more choices. This is possible because Edward Hunter of comScore said that the ads associated with the free online games have found the economic problems beneficial. So this economic bandwagon could keep rolling because of the financial opportunity–so much the better for those that play free online games.

One thing the free online game market has to see, as competition is the number of gamers that are way into consoles. But with the state of the economy that shouldn’t hamper the playing of free online games too much. This situation is bringing in new players as well as increasing the time that established players spend playing free online games.

Playing free online games is here to stay and many people that got started because of the hard economic times will continue to play when they get a new job or go back to their old job. The games are too much fun for people to just stop playing and there is such a variety of games to play. There are good choices for everybody. Whether they like car, sports, puzzle, multiplayer, rpg, strategy, arcade, casino, adventure, action, funny, flash games or free downloadable games – there is something for anyone that likes to play games.

The Hunger Games Film Review

Directed by: Gary Ross Starring: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth “A little hope is effective. A lot of hope is dangerous. A spark is fine, as long as it’s contained.’ President Snow This was one of the well-known quotes within the pic “The Hunger Games.” Katniss Everdeen, the picture’s hero, best encapsulated this minor spark that the President was talking about. He might be right in communicating that more than enough hope is hazardous. But he is wrong in positing that even a flash of hope can be contained. Story “The Hunger Games” happened in Panem, a modern city made out of twelve destroyed Districts serving a totalitarian legislature, settled at the Capitol. The people from the twelve Districts once tried to oust this savage legislature, but they fizzled. To punish this disobedience, the government decided that each year, kids from 12 to eighteen years would be taken from every District, to battle in an outdoor arena until only one of them remains standing. Yearly, this rivalry was televised to be seen by the whole country, to the happiness of the occupants of the Capitol. One of the 2 selected for District was Katniss Everdeen. The picture rotates around her experiences. Actors and Characters The picture was full of interesting and great actors and they were brilliant in their depictions. Jennifer Lawrence was perfect as Katniss, radiating enough engagingness. Woody Harrelson was amazing as Katniss’ coach. Donald Sutherland was stunning as President Snow.

Violence For a PG-13, this is violent. It is best to not let kids watch this picture, in my assessment. The director did his best to show less violence in this picture, in any case I still think it isn’t for teenagers. Soundtrack It would’ve been extraordinary to get Taylor Swift’s ‘Safe and Sound’ in one scene, regardless, the music that were utilized were flabbergasting. Here’s the soundtrack list:

1. “The Hunger Games” 1:10 2. “Katniss Afoot” 1:49 3. “Reaping Day” 1:35 4. “The Train” 1:27 5. “Entering the Capitol” 1:28 6. “Preparing the Chariots” 1:05 7. “Horn of Plenty” 1:59 8. “Penthouse/Training” 3:36 9. “Learning the Skills” 1:41 10. “The Countdown” 1:58 11. “Booby Trap” 2:37 12. “Healing Katniss” 3:04 13. “Rue’s Farewell” 5:00 14. “We Could Go Home” 1:15 15. “Searching for Peeta” 1:27 16. “The Cave” 3:13 17. “Muttations” 4:45 18. “Tenuous Winners/Returning Home” 3:25 19. “The Hunger Games”

On the whole, the film is enjoyable to watch.
