Video games have become one of the most popular entertainment options for all. The best part is that they are available for everyone from kids to old men, even teenagers. They can be played at any place and at any time and that is why they are very popular among all age groups.
In video games, those who play use their keyboard or controllers to operate what occurs on a screen, including computers and television ones as well. In computer games, players use pointing devices, while in a console game, they use their hands. There are also multiplayer games that involve the use of your body, like the Kinect. However, one thing that you might notice about video games is that there are a lot of them that are developed for the PC, whereas most multiplayer board games were designed for the console.
A good example of a popular board game is called Chutes and Ladders. It was developed by Microsoft and published in the UK in 1990 and for years it was one of the most popular games around. A few years after its release, Microsoft Entertainment and Technology Licensing released it as a computer game and it has been one of the most popular ever, right up to the present day. If you would like to play Chutes and Ladders with friends or family members, you can download the game from the Internet. Most websites let you play the game free of charge, while some of them might charge a small fee for using the computer program to play the game.
