Video games are more of an industry now than they have ever been, which is not to say that they haven’t been a massive industry in the past, but the fact is that the internet has made the world of gaming blow on, and access to games is available in most homes and even classrooms in the western world. Games can be a great way for kids to learn a lot of skills such a teamwork, meritocracy and even skills such as reading and writing if they play the right games. Whilst some games are age restricted and can be over the top, some games are designed to be positive and can help with a lot of areas of life. Think of minecraft, where kids can build things, learn about what it takes to survive and manufacture items.
They can even play on games with their favorite characters in them, for instance fans of Frozen can even play Elsa games online now, a lot of which are free and super simple to play in your browser, meaning no big expenses for the parents to have to shell out on what can be an expensive hobby.
There’s no denying kids are actually under some stress these days in school and just like adults need to wind down, playing games can be a great way to do it. For adults, the business can be very profitable with a lot of different monetization methods such as advertising, people paying for the game and even apps where you have to buy in game items and coins.
