Same Old Story: Most Popular Games Ideas Ever

Maybe it is an echo of a primeval fear of the unknown. Our ancestors started from the premise that the unfamiliar was dangerous. Anyhow, the reasons are not the subject of this article. What matters is the following fact: we like things that we know. It is as simple as that. This is why record labels pay radio stations for playing the same songs over and over.

Games And Comic Books: Do They Mix Well?

Movies and comic books have a lot in common, and can be a great source of inspiration for each other’s creators. Unfortunately, for many years, the comic book adaptations shown around in cinemas were of embarrassingly poor quality. The filmmakers, however, did not relent in their efforts. In the late 80’s and early 90’s, two splendid adaptations of Batman by Tim Burton hit the screens. Hope started to grow again. Many later productions, however, were rescued from complete failure only by large budgets, which allowed for impressive special effects. Fortunately, also genuinely good movies have been recently coming to light.

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. 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?
