Different kinds of games have different licenses. Many of the games out there can be downloaded online for free and many of the games that can be purchased in store have cheaper versions online that can be played sometimes even for free. There are also shareware games that have limitations in their many different features. Trial versions of the software are also available and these have time limits. You will only be bale to play them on your computer for free for a certain amount of days. They give you long enough to get hooked so that when your time runs out you will be willing to pay to get the whole shebang. These are great to get before you buy because it gives you a chance to see if you even will really like the game in question.

PC Games

These computer games need a disk. The game will be downloaded into your computer through this disk.

You will buy these online and they will be mailed to you or you can go to your local computer or electronics store to get the software.

Downloadable PC Games

These games will be downloaded off of the computer and installed right into your hard drive. These do not even take long to download in most cases. You can search the internet for game downloads in just a few seconds through Yahoo or Google or any other search engine. A quick search will give you thousands of great computer games to choose from.

Online Games

Online games are those that are played online. You do not need to have the disk, all you need to do is log onto the internet and log into the game site. You can then play straight from their servers. Yahoo for example has some great computer games that are very popular these days but there are many, many sites out there and the games can vary in a big way. Many of the online computer games cost money to play and this too can vary. Some will require that you pay for membership on a monthly, yearly or a lifetime basis while some are free. It is essential that you learn the costs of the online gaming sites before you sign up, that way you will not get any unpleasant surprises on your bill.

All of these options are great for people who like to play computer games. They will all give you the hours of pleasure that you seek and if you search well, you will be able to find this pleasure for an affordable price.
