Why Should There Be More Free Online Games?

Video games are no longer the preserve of geeky computer nerds, as people of all ages and backgrounds are starting to play them. This is understandable to a certain degree, since it is a fun way to spend time, though it is a wonder that video games have taken off in the way that they have considering their price. If you want to purchase one, it can be extremely expensive, so more and more people are turning to the Internet to find free online games. This is definitely the way the industry is moving, as companies seek to reduce piracy and encourage casual gamers to play more frequently.

It therefore makes sense to increase the number of free online games that are available. Everyone has their own taste, which means there needs to be online games which appeal to a wide range of people. Some people like shooting, some people like fantasy, whilst some are more interested in arcade games. The more games there are to choose from online, the more people will be playing them. This is good news for companies that develop these games, especially if they decide to use advertisements to make a profit. People are usually prepared to endure advertisements and product placement if it means they can play for free.

With more free online games available, developers will be forced to improve their products and push the boundaries further to create interesting and challenging games that appeal to a wide range of people. The Internet has made it much easier for amateur programmers to develop their own games, as enthusiasts share their passion and experience with others. Gaming enthusiasts are obviously more aware of what their fellow gamers want from a game than companies whose primary focus is making a profit. Many programmers are not in it for the money, but because they want to create games which people actually want to play.

The Internet has made it so much easier for people to connect with others who have similar interests and this is one of the reasons why people prefer to play online. When you play games online, you can play alongside or against people who are thousands of miles away. There is a real sense of community in the gaming world, as individuals seek to collaborate on gaming projects as well as beat them in competition! It is for this reason that consoles have had to adopt an online feature, since people were keen to connect with fellow gamers.

The vast scale of information and resources available over the Internet means that you don’t really expect to have to pay anything when accessing games or music. This may not be good news for companies that want to generate huge profits by charging you over-the-odds for products and services, but it is of definite benefit to consumers. As a gamer, you can already find a wide range of online games which cost nothing, though there is always room for more, since the more there are, the more people will play.

Computer Hardware and Simulation Gaming for Aviation Safety Considered

Modern day computer hardware is getting quite robust, and there is about 10 times the computing power in a smart phone as was used to fly the first Space Shuttle, maybe more. Still, when it comes to operating today’s aircraft simulators the computer hardware is intense, and these simulators can cost a ton of money. Because they cost so much the time to use them becomes very valuable, therefore most airlines only use them as required to check out their pilots, or train them for certification on the next aircraft that pilot needs to fly so he or she can get their type rating and satisfactorily prove they are safe.

The other day, I was speaking with an expert in computer online gaming communities, Troy Laclaire, about the use of simulators in aviation, and how great these tools were for complying with safety standards and preventing mistakes in the real world, carrying real passengers, when it really mattered most. One question we pondered was should airline pilots, commercial pilots, charter pilots, and fractional jet pilots be required to fly with another pilot to an airport first prior to going there as the pilot in command for the first time.

If such an onerous rule were to be made by the FAA, what about simulators, couldn’t a pilot merely fly the last 5-10 minutes on approach and take-off to each airport that the airline generally went too? Maybe, but in the case of a charter jet, that might mean they’d spend 100s of hours in a simulator and that costs a lot of money right? Okay so is there a solution to all this? Troy has come up with one potential solution, so lets’ talk about this shall we. First, Troy notes:

The only problem with this is that simulators are not exactly cheap to run and each simulation takes a fair amount of time, and far as I understand simulators are mostly used to get pilots comfortable with flying a particular plane type. However, since the pilots are generally already familiar with flying their planes (at least I should hope so) and nearly everyone has computers these days, it is possible that you could have a DVD series created to cover the routes, based around actual flights, and then have the pilots use their computers to run these so that they can get some familiarity with the airports.

Now then, this is a good idea, and it makes sense, a perfect solution, plus it also stands to reason that a gaming expert would come up with this concept. Okay so, Troy also suggests that we “provide the pilots with a take home DVD, basic flight-sim gaming controls, and they can use these to get some muscle memory.” This too makes sense, keeping it simple, and perfect for a last-minute booking for a fractional jet, or charter flight, as the pilot can merely practice a couple of ILS approaches, missed approach, take-off, and navigating the taxi ways, etc.

Troy, being a computer hardware engineer, and quite the prudent safety advisor also states; “Alternatively, have a “pilots room” setup where a pilot can run through a video/basic simulator of a previous flight that has already flown that route, letting them get a rough idea of what to expect when going to an airport they are not yet familiar with.”

Okay so that’s pretty easy, it can be set up in the break room of the local Jet Center, or at an FBO etc. Perhaps, for $10-20 they can shoot a couple of landings at the desired future airport that they will be flying too? Perhaps, it might also be available to ALL general aviation pilots, the DVDs and a flight simulator room at the local FBO, etc. May as well keep the system busy and paying for itself, perhaps it might also spit out certificates of completion and aviation insurance companies may consider lowering rates too? Indeed, I hope you will consider all this and think on it.
