Game House is a video game website, but it’s also much more than that: it’s peace of mind, it’s ease of use, and most of all, it’s great fun. Many websites offer you a venue to play video games, but none of them offer the suite of features that make Game House an excellent place to spend your time. It’s easy to use, and best of all, it’s like having a few thousand games in your house, but instead of being bogged down under a ton of paper and covers and the other mess that comes with a physical copy of a game. Instead, everything is nice and modern and completely digital.
How does it work?
It’s dead simple. You go to their homepage and click on the “Create Account” link in the upper right hand of the web page, right under the big friendly “Welcome!” sign. The new account page just wants an email address and a password. Wow! It doesn’t get easier than that, and it doesn’t cost a penny. Now you have access to their gigantic library of games! Now, some of the games do cost money, but that’s easy, too. You can do one of two things. You can enter your credit card information and download individual games which are then added to your account, or, you can purchase a Fun Pass. The Fun Pass unlocks all the games on the website! Incredible! What’s more, you can try out the service for two weeks absolutely free. If you don’t want the service (which you will) you can cancel hassle free without paying a dime.
Why is it so convenient?
All of your games are in the same place. You don’t have to worry about where to store them, where you left them, sorting through discs, finding manuals, installing, and so on. Instead, you just go on your account and download the game you want, right to your computer. Some of them can even be played right there in your web browser, which saves you space on your hard drive. What’s more, it saves you physical space in your home since all of the games are available on the web site.
Gee, that sounds awesome, but are there any good games?
Yes! That’s another thing that’s so awesome about Game House. You have access to 2,300+ games. If you can’t find a game you don’t want to play and will fall in love with, you’re not trying. For simplicity and ease of use, the games are separated into four major groups: PC Games, Mac Games, Online Games, and Mobile Games. PC, Mac, and Online games are separated into a huge variety of genres, from Action to Word games. Mobile games are separated by platform: iPhone, iPad, and Android. From there, you can go on the hunt for your favorite games in your favorite genres. You can also make use of the search bar to find something specific. Finally, if you don’t feel like doing any digging, you can check out with other people are playing and what’s new as well.
What games would you play?
Honestly, I love them all. I’m a gamer at heart, and access to this site is like letting a mouse loose in a cheese factory. However, forced to choose amongst my favorite children, here are the games I tried out, and you should give a chance yourself.
Roller Coaster Tycoon 2
For all those business moguls out there, it doesn’t get much better than the Roller Coaster Tycoon series. I chose to try out 2 because I own the first and third ones. It’s excellent! The download went without a hitch and soon I was managing my own little theme park. The nice thing is, I never would have tried the second game in the series without Game House, so this was an excellent chance to try some games I’d missed in the past. That said, Roller Coaster Tycoon is a great series for everyone. You can play in two different modes: sandbox and challenge. In sandbox mode you select a park you want to build in and just go to town. You lay out the park and its attractions such as carousels, slides, bumper cars, and the titular roller coasters. You can set the prices and other parameters to attract as many guests as possible. In challenge mode, you take the reigns of a failing park, empty land, or another scenario and try to build the best park possible within a time limit.
From Scrabble to crosswords to anything in between, there’s a word game for everone!
Classic Arcade Games
I honestly couldn’t get enough of classic Pac-Man. If you’ve never tried it, give it a whirl!
