Few sports generate the same amount of revenue as football does. A game is something we all do for fun, anyway. If that’s the case, then it’s different from business. Many sports, however, are also very lucrative sports, and thus, there are plenty of opportunities for us to make money while playing.
Poker is an obvious choice. Poker players bet on what cards are present, and try to win those cards. The stakes are high, since the house always has the advantage, but they are well worth playing. Some people don’t think of gambling as a sport, but it’s really more of a skill than a skill set. Those who are good at betting can sometimes put up more of a gamble than the person playing the hand. These players are called gamblers, not poker gamblers.
Most games played according to rules are not as serious as, say, blackjack or roulette. Most just involve luck, and are therefore not as competitive. The rules usually depend on who is playing, or if they are a “real” game. Many real world games are played according to rules, so players know how to play before they start, and thus are less likely to lose money. For instance, most bridge matches, when played according to rules, aren’t played based on pure chance, but are instead based on strategy, chance, skills, etc.
Most video games are played with rules, but some, such as the popular “Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games” orMMORPGs, are played entirely with the players’ imaginations. These games require players to think on their feet, as much as their legs, as to figure out the next move, or strategy. A good MMORPG often requires players to use certain pieces of equipment, like weapons, that help them in their quest. The reason behind this is to give the feeling that they are part of a much larger game (not only human beings, but also monsters and other players) where each player is playing a part, even if they are on opposite sides of the globe.
Another type of game that is completely governed by rules is the word game. There are many games that have been categorized as “word games,” such as cribbage. Games that have no etymology are those that have no meaning in the real world, or are entirely abstract. This includes, for example, the game of bingo, or chess, which are both abstract because there are no physical pieces to play with, and are therefore played without any reference to anything in the physical world.
Most video games are played according to rules, but many, including the ones that you probably aren’t familiar with, are played according to creativity. If you want to play an online strategy game, you would probably be better off playing it according to rules, since you will have an objective to beat your opponents. If you want to have a lot of fun, you can instead have a lot of fun having a good time figuring out the rules as you go along. That’s what makes many online games so much fun: they allow you to experience a wide variety of games in a short amount of time!
