There are few people left in the world, it seems, who don’t have a mobile phone attached to their ear or spend the majority of their day wearing their thumbs out. Since everyone has gone mobile, is it any wonder that mobile gaming is such a success? However, that really is just the short answer. There are a number of reasons why mobile gaming has taken the world by storm and we are going to have a look at a few of them here today.
Since the dawn of the touchscreen phone, people have drooled over the possibilities and developers have gone to great lengths to reinvent what apps can do over and over again. Every once in a while, there is an app released that take people to a whole new level of gaming. Whether it is by perfecting the graphical output or the game mechanics, people are going bonkers over these apps.
Gaming is as much a pastime as it is work for some people. The gaming community is growing and some make their daily bread through gaming. We are of course talking about YouTubers, the seemingly unlimited source of creativity and entertainment that is the new online success. But why did mobile gaming become so successful and why will its success continue? We are taking a look at four different reasons here today.
1. A Way To Pass the Time
The most obvious reason that mobile gaming is such a success is because it is a fun way to pass the time when traveling. Riding public transportation to and from work can be a monotonous and frustrating time because so many hours are spent on the job then to waste time going back and forth is sheer torture. Mobile gaming offers relief from an otherwise boring trip. The same holds true for any time someone is simply looking for something to fill the time. What better way than to play a game that you really enjoy?
Many people play mobile gaming in the hopes of winning that big jackpot. Of course, there are always smaller prizes, freebies and loyalty rewards that are given out every day, but wouldn’t it be nice to win the big one? Some people do come back for those nice rewards that are meted out for repeat visitors because there are specific prizes they are trying to ‘earn’ by coming back to the same site day after day. Maybe they’ll never win the jackpot but even winning smaller amounts makes gaming all the more fun.
3. Social Online Community
Once you begin playing the same game within the same ‘room’ you start to recognise the regulars. This forms a nice little community and after a while, you start to know more about the other players than you do members of your own family. There is also a healthy spirit of competition that takes place and when one of the regulars wins, big or small, the entire groups shares their congratulations all around whilst they await their turn at the winner’s table in their little gaming community.
Online gaming is also a great way to unwind after a long day. You don’t need to think about anything but the game you are playing and you can just sit back and relax. Actually, there are times when the game you are playing starts to heat up, especially if no one has won the big one in a while. However, this kind of ‘tension’ is still much more relaxing than worrying about those bills you need to pay or whether or not you will get that promotion you have been vying for at work.
Mobile gaming is, indeed, a huge success for these and many other reasons. Whether you are an old pro or new to the world of mobile gaming, you have to admit that it really is fun. Actually, you have to admit that fun is probably the biggest reason of all!
