A computer game is a video game console that is usually computer generated and available for use by personal computers or gaming systems. Computer games can include computer simulations of real-life situations such as war or exercising, sports, travel, racing, etc. Video games are designed to provide players with a simulated environment that imitates the environment a specific game might be set in. Some computer games are for single players, where the player cooperates with another player online; whereas others are multiplayer games, which require two or more players to work together in order to complete the objectives and achieve success.
While most computer games are single player experiences, there are some exceptions, such as MMORPGs or massively multiplayer online role-playing games. A massively multiplayer online role-playing game is a multiplayer action game in which two or more computers play the role of different characters within the game’s world. The players take turns controlling their characters, and the game’s objective is to defeat or avoid being defeated by another character. There are many popular multiplayer games such as World of Warcraft, Warhammer Online, EverQuest, Secret Of Solstise, etc. One of the most popular multiplayer games is Age of Conan, which has many fans of this genre.
