Browser games (Browser games)
Browser games are games for the browser, which can be played directly in the browser. Unlike online games, it is not necessary to download a client to play, which of course saves time and disk space. New browser games usually use Flash or Unity, so-called browser plugins, to display animations or models. In case such a plugin is needed, the browser will notify the user if the plugin is not already installed. The installation of a plugin is very simple and usually done within a minute. The best-known offshoots of this category include games such as the sci-fi hit Battlestar Galactica Online, the strategy game The Settlers Online or Forge of Empires, to name just a few. Browser games usually focus less on graphics, but more on game depth in a persistent game world. Another advantage of browser games is that they can be played from anywhere, as long as a tablet, laptop or PC and an Internet connection are available. This flexibility makes browser games so interesting for both casual and hardcore gamers.
Good online games are, in terms of quality and scope, comparable to full-prize PC titles as you can buy them in a conventional store, but with the difference that they are played exclusively online with and against other players. All online games listed here are basically free to play, as they all work according to the Free2Play model. Free2Play means that every person can download and use the client for free. However, in order to recoup the development costs, publishers offer the possibility to buy minor advantages with real money. These can be purely cosmetic (e.g. a premium mount, weapon or armor) but also elementary (e.g. 50% higher income). In addition, some developers offer their players also AddOns, which extends the online game with new missions, levels and items. The advantage of online games is the superior graphics quality, sound background and game world.
