I have always been a gamer; growing up my brother and I
had a Amstrad 64 which was our pride and joy, it lived under the stairs and
that’s where you would find us if we weren’t playing outside. Then eventually we had a PC and entered a
whole new league of gaming.
Also it’s actually how I first
“met” my now husband, initially online through World of Warcraft and then
falling in love in real life. Yes geeky
I was, but no trouble either; I would rather be lost in an adventure than
causing any mischief late at night!
These days I have not had the
spare money to fund my computer game habit, a monthly subscription to World of
Warcraft is out of the question, finances are stretched with more mouths to
feed, clothes to buy and activities to support! So when I stumbled upon Poki you
could imagine my delight, finally a place that offers free games to play! We all need something that helps us relax
and unwind after a tough day and gaming is that pastime for me.
It’s an amusing way to spend a
few hours, even better I can offer the boys a go on some of the games they will
recognise like Angry Birds as a treat and
it won’t mean I have to dig deep into my wallet to pay for it!
The games are free because you do have a
little advert to watch before you start playing but that is a small price to
pay to keep the site free. I wish I had
found it sooner as I have paid a fair bit to the App Store for games to go on the
boys iPads. Also you can’t fault the
quality, the games are very good, these are the types of games I have paid a
few quid (or more) each time without batting an eyelid, okay maybe just the
occasional grumble, but why pay when you can enjoy them for free.
It’s quite overwhelming the sheer
choice available, flappy birds, sport games, animal games and arcade games,
whatever you fancy trying they will have a game for you. I like how you get recommendations along the
top based on what you have played already; it makes it easier to find what you
would most like to try next. The games all have scores too, so you can gauge which ones might be the better ones to play.
enjoy restaurant games, making up food for customers and getting their order to
them as quick as possible. I have no
shortage of choice. If I had to work in
a real restaurant I might not be so keen but for some reason I can’t get enough
of virtual ones…
If you want to get the grey cells
working you can start with the thinking games, your brain might appreciate the
workout, I know mine would. There are
puzzles, maths and memory games all designed to help you in that department.
Right I better sign off there I need to serve up a
pizza before my customer gets restless!
