Games are the physical representation of ideas and concepts, conveyed through the medium of play. A game is usually a structured form of action, normally undertaken for fun or entertainment, and occasionally used as an educational instrument. Games are different from work, which generally is carried out for remuneration, or for creative expression, and from architecture, which is a more abstract form of artistic or aesthetic elements. The purpose of a game is to provide entertainment, or to pass the time, or both. However, games are also used in education, training, sports and war, for the purpose of improving mental alertness, reaction time and ability.
Training can be effective only when games are suspended between the two teams at the early stage. Such games are called practice games. In a single game, a specific number of players may be engaged on each side, and each player may play only one attack or defense phase for a limited period of time. The purpose of a single game of practice is to develop a single skill, or develop or improve upon a specific ability, or both.
Single games should be planned according to the team that wants to practice. This means that each team member should know his or her role and obligation on the team, such as holding the goal, or playing a certain role in a balanced attack. Each player should be made aware of the aim of the team so that the necessary actions are taken during the course of the game. It is important that there should be some balance between offensive and defensive strategies, or vice versa.
Single-player games are much simpler than multi-player games, as there is no need for communication among players on what they should do or why they should do it. There may also be more control over the course of the game as there are only a limited number of players during the game, thus, there is an advantage if one is able to execute his or her strategy well. Single games allow for greater individual focus. However, there is also a limitation on the number of mistakes a single player may make during a single game. If a team member fails to execute his or her plan for the entire duration of the game, that player forfeits his or her game.
Multi-player games require communication from each team member. However, because there are more players on each team, there are more opportunities for everyone to communicate with each other. The advantage of multi-player games is that a player who is good at defense can help out his or her team mates by allowing them to use their abilities to perfection. Players can also work together to defend or attack the opponents’ base using different weapons such as guns, bows, and swords. However, working with friends is also possible and this will provide children with more fun and excitement. As much fun as a battle with the computer can be, playing a friendly match against a classmate or friend can provide children with just as much enjoyment.
The most popular games for kids usually revolve around action or adventure. Adventure games involve characters going on quests, solving puzzles, or fighting enemies. Sports games involve sports and physical activities such as running, jumping, and throwing various types of objects. Strategy games include mastering several games and competing against the computer in order to become the best. In general, the more entertaining a game is, the more popular it is and the more diverse the selection of games is the wider a variety of games will be.
