Free Games is an excellent way to relax and to have fun online. Not only do they provide entertainment but they also help with memory skills such as the ability to remember something you just saw or heard. Most Free Games is aimed at a niche audience of people, for example iPhone games which are designed to help improve memory skills.
Free Games is free, and unlike most premium applications there is no additional content you have to pay for. For example, if you enjoyed a particular game on Facebook, you can simply login and take back the high score, without paying a penny. This is similar to playing a flash game on Facebook, where you login with your Facebook account and without paying a fee you start playing the game. Some premium applications include advertising, which could lead to spyware and/or tracking of your activity. So why should you go for a paid membership when there are literally hundreds of free games you can play without having to pay anything?
In addition to the free games offered by Facebook, there are other online services like a paid service for online shopping, a social networking site like MySpace or LinkedIn. These are all part of a premium model where you don’t have to spend money to get a premium service, rather you pay a small monthly fee to access premium services. The model of free-to-play games and services is similar, where you get to start playing and without spending money you can explore and experience the game as much as you want. If you want to be able to buy items or buy in-game currency, then you need to pay a nominal fee.
However, a different thing is that the business model for these online services is entirely different. Free video games and premium online social networks are all part of a non-freemium model where the seller is the host and the buyer is the user. They can interact, create, and share without having to purchase any products or services, but they do not have to pay anything extra. This business model is currently very popular on social networking sites such as Facebook.
Many casual gamers are becoming used to the business model of premium and microtransactions in online games and are therefore less attached to microtransactions. One of the big complaints about the microtransactions in games has been that they can affect the balance of the game by making it difficult to accumulate the necessary materials to build something. However, the developers of games such as World of Warcraft have stated that this is an unintentional feature of their game. They state that it was meant to make it more challenging, and that they will have further updates to prevent this type of “money whoring” from happening.
The best free games for both casual gamers and the most monetized are puzzle and casual games. These genres tend to be much less affected by the presence of microtransactions. The reason for this is that it usually takes a long time to build up enough coins to purchase the required items, so it is usually not worth it to pay real money until you are ready to purchase. Puzzle games are a good example of this, as you can purchase items in the game that are required to solve the puzzle, and therefore it is not necessary to pay in order to do so.
