Future Of Online Gaming Websites And Mobile Games
« on: 13. January 2017., 07:11:32 »
If we were to use only one word to describe the future of online gaming then that one word has to be ‘exciting’. There are some fascinating discussions, developments and debates taking place in and about the space of online gaming.

People talk about online gaming and:
•   Its ability to help people with depression and anxiety related disorders.
•   Artificial intelligence and its place in online gaming.
•   Hardware and software taking this industry to almost unimaginable realms.
•   The future bringing in more and more changes in almost every facet of the industry.


There are many ways in which people interact with their favorite online games. Some of these are:
•   Playing games on their desktops.
•   Dedicated gaming consoles.
•   Gaming websites.
•   Smartphones.
•   Tablets and so on.

Online gaming websites and mobile games have become extremely popular today and both of them are not always mutually exclusive. You can access online gaming websites thorough your mobile device too. So the future of both these entities in the industry of online gaming is pretty closely interlinked.

Lower entry barriers
Free-to-play games will show a huge rate of growth. Yes, there is a large percentage of population that will continue to pay for games – console based or online – but equally importantly, there are lots of people who love to try out free games and this is something that game developers will have to cater for. This will also encompass all genres of games out there – action, strategy, puzzle games and so on.

Casinos online
If there is one genre of online games that is showing phenomenal growth then it is gambling! Online casinos are gaining more and more foothold in the industry and online gaming websites will have to cater for this in multiple ways:

•   Improving the user-experience of online casinos.
•   Investing in high-end security certifications and credentials.
•   Looking at enabling the use of virtual currency such as BitCoin and so on.

Here again, broadly speaking, there are two categories of games – one is where the serious gambling takes place and the other is for the sheer fun of gambling online.

Responsive web design
Responsive web design has emerged as a strong principle of web design for every website owner out there. It stands to logic therefore that it will be applied by online gaming websites as well. People are using their smartphones, tablets and phablets to interact with online games and it is vital for gamers to realize this fact and implement the same. After all, one does not want to lose out on a customer simply because of being restricted to a laptop!

Role-playing
MMORPG or Massively multiplayer online role-playing game is one of the fastest growing types of game. It brings together large numbers or people who indulge in role playing and simultaneous gaming as well. This could be by way of e-sports or fantasy games but such multi-player games need:

•   Huge bandwidth.
•   Fabulous internet connectivity.
•   A technologically superior website and
•   The ability to support gamers across vast geographical tracts.

Gaming websites will have to keep all this in mind as the future beckons.

Augmented reality and virtual reality
Mobile gaming has become rather interesting thanks to AR or augmented reality. Indeed Pokémon GO was the one game that brought this reality closer home to all of us. Location based games are probably going to grow rather strongly because this also gives local businesses and brands the opportunity to make their presence stronger.
 
Related to AR is VR or virtual reality and while this sector is yet to show phenomenal growth, it is simply a question of time. Mobile devices have become a very strong part of gamers’ lives and it is probably not too much of a stretch to say that the term ‘mobile device’ can also encompass:
•   VR headsets.
•   Smartwatches
•   Gaming tablets.
•   Smart Glasses etc.

Getting social
Online gaming is already a social activity! But this is one facet that every website will have to cater for. Gamers like to interact with each other to share tips, earn bragging rights and keep abreast of the industry. When a mobile game or gaming website enables this socialization, it is likely to earn even more traction in the community. This aspect is so vital that gaming websites are going to target even midcore gamers with this temptation. Casual gamers will also like to scan social media networks for news and information on their favorite games.

The Cloud
The rise of cloud computing has changed a lot of things in the way resources are used and disseminated. This is likely to impact gaming as well. Websites will have to look to the Cloud to support the development of games and the sharing of resources. In a big way, this is cost effective and will help the consumer get rid of the need to carry gaming devices everywhere. Simply tap into the cloud and start playing!
