DAILY TIP DEC 10 2011
Today's tip is for all the 'gamers' out there. From Super Mario to Zelda and from Portal 2 to NHL 2011, video games have come along way since the dawn of 'Pong'.
Now you have the choice of game systems (Wii, PlayStation, XBox and all their siblings), extreme graphics, amazing soundtracks and of course all the different games.
Games can vary in difficulty, age range, amount of players and what type of controllers are required. Speaking with a game specialist is a great way to decide on what to buy. Most electronic stores have a few 'gamers' on staff, so take advantage of their knowledge.
There is a game out there for everyone.
Some key things to remember when shopping:
- RPG - Role playing game
- MMORPG - Massive Multi player online role playing game
- Ratings for games are similar to ratings for movies e.g., E (for everyone)
- Several movies have games that follow the plots e.g., Batman Arkham City, Smurfs, Prince of Persia Sands of Time
