Ever wondered about why online games are so appealing? Why do we enjoy playing them so much? Let's take a closer look at what it is so interesting about them.

When we open our browser to play a game, we are looking for something different than if we were to load up a game we have installed and downloaded onto a device. A Flash game is always going to be very different from a game from a big studio and so it captures our interest in a different way. Here are some of the features they use to capture our interest and then keep it focused.

Accessible
One of the major reasons why online games manage to capture your interest is that they are accessible to all. They are designed to be played on whatever device you happen to have. Whether you are playing on a computer or on a mobile device. The developers have chosen to make the vast majority of games they release and the sites they are hosted on completely optimised for mobile devices. Not only does it open up the target audience to cover a lot more people, but it also means that more people are able to access it casually. Instead of finding space for a laptop and a WiFi connection, you can just use your smartphone and the data you already have.

Quick
One feature you will often find amongst online games is that they are quick. They play out nearly instantly and you will reap the benefits must faster than another game. Other computer games rely on having a long playtime to keep you playing. They will use plot and drawn out aspects of gameplay to capture interest and save functions allow a player to continue playing at different intervals.

With online games, this is not the case. If you check out some of the great slots online, you will find some amazing gameplay that never takes too long. The reels spin quickly and the lure of scatters and bonus rounds keep us wanting to play more.




Innovative
Anyone who thinks online games are in any way simple has not played one. The developers use all their expertise to keep the games innovative and fresh. From VR compatibilities to new bonuses and game mechanics, they are constantly coming up with something new for their audiences to enjoy.

NetEnt, one of the biggest online game developers currently on the market, has been the brains behind a number of innovative mechanics. For example, they came up with the popular Cluster Wins mechanic. A standard game would need matching symbols along a certain line to trigger a winning scenario. Meanwhile, a game using the cluster mechanic only requires those matching symbols to touch along various edges.

As can clearly be seen above, there are great differences between online games and traditional PC console games. However, it is also obvious that online games are in no way lesser than anything produced by the big-name gaming studios. They are smart and interesting games loved by many all around the planet. With developers working tirelessly to constantly bring us the next big improvement, we cannot wait to see what they have up their sleeves. Be it a new game or a new style of play, it is sure to attract lots of praise.
