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. 

The History of Online Browser Games

Browser games are are a relatively new phenomenon. The first ones were developed in late 90’s so the history of online gaming is not really long. It all started with the development of Document Object Model (DOM) Level 2 technology.

The DOM, CSS, and JavaScript were used to write these first 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.

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?

The Social Aspect of Online Browser Games: From Avatars to Lovers

Not all browser games are good platforms for sociailizing. Can you imagine making friends while playing simple skill games such as Tetris? However, in the world of MMORPGs, avatars are probably one of the most important elements which dominates the game plot, action and interaction possibilities. It turns out that for most players the attractiveness of browser games stems largely from a desire to create their alter ego projections in the unreal world. Virtual reality provides a platform for rendering real-life relationships (hence real emotions) in an unreal world. Joined in common missions or tasks, players learn teamwork along with other benefits of socializing and networking. Sometimes, friendship turns to something more...What makes massive multiplayer online browser games so attractive? Why do millions of players from all over the world actually create virtual identities?
