Gaming was in the past seen as a hobby for a certain kind of person and not something many people did. But as time has passed, especially in the last 10 years there have been more and more people drawn to games. With the arrival of the smartphone and tablet gaming exploded into what it is today, a multi billion dollar business.
One of the key reasons that there are more people playing games is the internet, as it grew more and more people were coming online and looking for something to do. This created a need for games and developers started to get creative. When Facebook arrived it gave everyone a platform to play and share games on, and it is still one of the most popular places to find something new.
But with so many people all wanting different things it is no surprise that companies started to create a huge range of different games, taking old classics like Mahjong or Solitaire and bringing them into the modern age. There was also the creation of the casual game as we see it today, Match 3 Games, Bubble Shooters and Running Games. They are all fun to play, you can share details and bonuses with your friends and you can be in the game for only a short period of time or for hours depending on your schedule.
And then came the rise of the smartphone, a place that could not only help you communicate but it was connected to the internet. As websites, game developers and media got used to the idea the growth in technology was incredible and the software that made these connections possible also improved.
With more stable connections, better batteries and bigger screens came the rise of being able to play casual games anywhere you wanted, on the bus, waiting for a friend or even just at home on your couch. This level of freedom is brilliant and a more and more people get connected there are more and more games coming out, some just for mobile devices and others across all platforms.
When suddenly the Tablet arrived on the scene it gave you even better graphics and processing power making more complicated or bigger games possible. The average tablet or smartphone now is as powerful as a computer was a couple of years ago and the gap is getting smaller and smaller.
This gives the game developers much more freedom to be creative, and opened up many more genres of gaming too. You can play a MMO, Slots, Casual and Sports games anywhere you want and there are very few restrictions to what you can do and where you can play. With new games being developed all the time there is no end to the fun you can have.
All in all it seems mobile gaming is here to stay, and this is exciting especially as new devices and games are always around. Whatever and wherever you play there is a bright future for this style of games and we are looking forward to seeing what happens next.
