Flash games and the people who play them

Aug 17, 2007
Flash games are a great way for people to take a break at work. These games have a proliferation of websites that people visit on a daily basis. So what is it about these games that have people flocking to them to play them in droves.

The flash games are easy to find online and even easier to play. By simply visiting one of the plethora of flash game sites found online you are able to find your alltime favorite games. They are games that many people grew up playing. Virtually all of the original Atari 2600 games have been converted into flash arcade games. You can pick classics such as space-invaders, donkey-kong, or pong.

The flash arcade games are not limited to the atari but have now ventured forth into the realm of the classic nintendo games, metroid, mario brothers, or punch-out. These games are compressed and prepared in an internet friendly coding environment.

The games allow those that are stressed at work to achieve some downtime during the day. While people are playing the flash arcade games they are avoiding the daily rigors of their work. They are able to be absorbed into an alternate reality that allows them to escape the rigors of their daily lives.

The release of this daily stress allows the individuals to perform better at other simple tasks that they have to do during the day. The individuals gain a level of frustration release and axiety release while playing the flash arcade games.

Many times communities develop around some of the flash games. People log-in to forums to chat and discuss the playing of the games. Students take a needed respit from work to play the games and try to one-up their classmates in the score of a favorite flash arcade game. Posting high scores to the forum.

This is a natural human emotion of competition and extends from the time period before computers. People have been competing in different events for centuries and this new form of competition is just an extension of the desire of humans to win.

The flash arcade games give the players a sense of accomplishment. They are also extremely easy to play with no complex commands or buttons. The flash game can typically be controlled by the arrow keys and the space bar or the mouse.

Being the best a flash arcade game typically means you have better reactions or better memory. Not a better method to find the cheat code to the game online.
