So am talking about all the fun of online gaming today, what are online games, they are video games played over an Internet connection, allowing us to play a games with someone that could be a million miles away. The development of online gaming is parallel to the development of computers and the Internet.
I started online gaming in my teens and its great apart from the part you can’t pause and the constant need to explain to them it’s online gaming and it cant really be paused. You meet millions of people from different parts of our world and interact and work together on quests or missions, there is nothing like having a really person working with you than an NPC, that knows what to do sometimes without you having to give orders.
Online gaming as come a very very long way, spanning 30 years and 100 of games like Mazewar, Adventure, Zork (also known as Dungeon), MUD (Multi-User Dungeon), Avalon: The Legend Lives (a game still going strong till today) and so many others.
