PETA Takes On The World’s Most Famous Plumber

Gamers have already became accustomed to the fact that brutal FPPs, or erotic adventure games are common targets of morality’s defenders attacks. It turns out that even rather innocuous titles can not feel safe anymore - even such classics like Super Mario Bros, and a semi-educational game, Cooking Mama.

Are Online Browser Games Stealing Our Time?

The concept of time escapes easy definitions. It could probably be described as a non-spatial continuum in the course of which various events occur. Time spreads on a line that joins past with the future. Nowadays, when so many of us live in a hurry, time became a really precious commodity. If it is so valuable, why do people spend so much time wasting it? Surfing the Internet is one of the most time-consuming activities of contemporary human beings. And one of the most recent online crazes are online browser games. 

Weight Loss and...Online Browser Games?!

It is common belief that the vanishing border between the real and virtual worlds may pose serious threat to both mental and physical health of gamers. With the boom of online browser games, the concerns are probably quite reasonable...but only to an extent. Hardly anything can and should be looked at from an extremely black-and-white perspective. Recent research conducted by American scientist at Indiana University showed astounding results. Apparently, paying regular visits to the virtual world of Second Life, one of the most famous and most controversial browser games, may actually help lose weight in real life. How come? Is it about the calories you burn hitting that keyboard when you play skill games?

Kids and Online Browser Games

It is hard to imagine what would life without Internet be like in the 21st century. We browse the Web everyday and everywhere: at work, at home, even on holiday. We may claim that it has no control over our lives, but let us speak frankly: how many people (at least in the developed countries) could honestly say they would not at all mind living offline? As adults we are more or less aware of the various - often veiled - threats of frequent Internet surfing. Therefore, if necessary, we are able to place certain restrictions on ourselves. Unfortunately, children lack this ability, and usually do not have a clue about where to draw the line between safe and unsafe computer use. Probably the most alarming is the fact that they are more prone to Internet addiction, especially to playing browser games, skill games and instant messaging.
