After being someone’s son/daughter for some years, running out of ideas what to get your mom? Well, here’s an idea. How about some games? Surprise? You shouldn’t. Women dominate the causal game industry. We’re not talking about little girls or even 20 something women. The majority of the players are aging between 35-60. Females have invaded into this part of the tech world.
No mom is the same. So depending on what your mom likes, there is always a kind of game for her. Moms who like to read and do word puzzles? There are tons of word games such as the famous Scrabble and TextTwist. Like pretty graphics with some girly actions? How about Sally’s Spa or Diner Dash? Get a kick out of mysteries? Get some hidden object games and solve some secret codes. Try my favorite Mortimer Beckett. Or maybe just get them subscription to get access of any games available.
Get them hooked and you won’t need to think of other gifts for their birthdays and Christmas.
Little Shop Memories
You may not consider yourself as a Gamer. What do you think of a gamer? A person who plays hard core shooting games and stays up all night staring at the screen? A person who wears the headphones on the head and talks to others in the virtual world?
Causal games, the kind of games that you play in leisure time. The games that you play when you just want to have a break and forget about work, forget about the real world problems and just concentrate on the challenges in the virtual world.
A popular kind of game became popular within these few years. They are called the Hidden Object Games. Mortimer Beckett and Little Shop are two of my favorite ones. This kind of game evolved from simply finding objects from a static picture, to finding them in an animating photo, to having a whole mysterious story line behind the game. You go around in the game and find clues to solve the big mystery behind the story. It’s addictive.
If being a gamer sounds cool to you, you should start playing some causal games.
