A Lesson In Online Gaming For Mom and Dad Just In Time For The Holidays

Dec 25, 2007
Parents are wondering more then ever what are these terms my child is using? Well usually there getting these terms from the games you bought them that they play online with older and better people.

The days of playing board games are over at least until the power goes out. Kids do not want to play monopoly anymore; they want to play Gears of War and Halo 3 with all their friends online. That is what you will hear from them is, "Dad, I want an Xbox 360 for Christmas so I can play Halo3 online with other people so I don't have to bug you to play with me." That is sort of what you will hear at that time of the year.

If you have a computer and an internet connection you can start playing games today. Games like counterstrike and day of defeat and call of duty those are all games that you can play online with other people and have fun. You can actually talk to them and have conversations with people online where as playing by you gets boring and old fast.

The games that kids will play at school will be different then what they play at home. At school they will be playing simple flash games that they can download off the internet or just go to a site and start playing. Simple games like Bowman, simple Counterstrike and other games that will be allowed by the schools server is what they will play. Many kids nowadays know how to get around the schools server and do this everyday. I know when I was in school I got away with going around the servers easily all I did was go to Google and type in getting around proxy servers and so many websites popped up for gaming.

The last type of gaming that is taking over today's gaming is shooter games. These games are becoming more and more popular because of the violence and role that they are able to play in the game. You can shoot someone and see blood go everywhere and they think it's cool to play. Well I play Counterstrike and it's not that bloody and gory all it is, is you playing against the terrorists online. I mean it is the number 1 rated online action game of today. No other game can compare to Counterstrike except those made from the same company as it. You just go online and start playing right away and before you know it you're pretty good at it and then you become obsessed with it unlike many other people I am not obsessed with the game. People will sit there and play it for hours before they even flinch. That is obsessed and should be looked at by doctors as to why they cannot stop playing. People will play crazy hours like 50 or 60 hours a week I have even heard of people playing more than 100 hours a week.
