The most popular games and sports

People play different games every day. Some of them are real, others are virtual. Most of us play games for entertainment but there is a small part of people that have turned playing into a profession. Football, kick-box, box, karate, wrestling, swimming, chess, the electronic sports – all these things can be both entertainment and a way of life.

There is a huge difference between the real games and the virtual ones. But both need to be practiced every day. All gamers that play virtual games practice their skills in computer sports. They need to create new strategies for playing and for winning the tournaments. In real sports it is the same but the trainings are outside with a ball or with gloves.

There is a statistic for the most popular types and kinds of games. Here it is:

1. Football is the most popular game ever. Millions of people watch football for entertainment and a lot of them play it in their free time.

2. Box – it is the second most popular sport in the world.

3. Electronic games or sports take the third place. There are different computer games like Counter Strike, StarCraft, Warcraft and so on. Each of these games has a lot of fans all over the world. Some games are not only an entertainment but a cult for gamers – Diablo II, Diablo III, StarCraft and Counter Strike are the favourite titles of virtual games.

4. The fourth place is for basketball – a game that is most popular in America but a lot of people in other parts of the world love it too.

5. The fifth place is for box and kick box. These are sports that many people watch and play for their entertainment. Some of us play these sports for living.

If we make a poll for the 20 most popular sports and games we will hear a lot of sports and game names. But there is a difference between the people. And that is why we based our statistic on the answers people gave.

The games – in the past and today

The Olympic Games – these are games where a lot of professional athletes compete for the first place. In the Olympic Games in 2012 Bulgaria won only two medals – a silver and a bronze in wrestling for women and in boxing for men. The Olympic Games are a great way for entertainment and the whole world watches them. It is a great event. Every four years there are Olympic Games.

The place where these games were born was ancient Greece. Then they were a test for strength, force, vitality and other qualities. The spectators from all parts of Greece went to the games not only for entertainment but to watch how their favourite competitors play the games.

Today there are many different sports and championships. We know the World Football Cup, the K1 – championship for professional fighters, the National Basketball Association and many interesting electronic sports.

Today the computer and video games have become something more than just games or entertainment. They have become a part of our life. There are professional gamers who take part in different competitions exactly as the football players, the kick-boxers and all other real sport players.

The games are a part of children’s life too. All children learn different things while they are playing. Many parents buy puzzles and other logical games because that will help their children to develop their logic. On the Internet there are many online shops for all kinds and types of games. You can order Warcraft III, a puzzle map, video game or something else and it will be delivered to you in a day or two. So you can start your entertainment without going out of your home.

There are games even for your pets. In the pet stores you can buy logical games for your dog, games for your cat or something for your bird. And you will enjoy watching them with their new games and toys.

There are a lot of ways for entertainment. We can play different games or go out with friends, watch a movie or something else. It is important to be happy and to love what we do.

The new way of playing games

The new way for entertainment is something that the young and the old like. The first generation of video and electronic games were not very good but people loved them because it was something new and different from the ordinary ways for entertainment. With the development of the technology the world of games changed and today we play games with incredible graphics and images. Today is the time of the virtual games from the new generation.

The new titles of games are Diablo III, StarCraft II, World of Warcraft Mists of Pandaria, World of Warcraft Cataclysm and many other games. This new way of entertainment attracts millions of people in front of the computers and play stations. Not only the children but their parents play these games too. The new RPGs (Role Playing Game) are something that the world has never seen before. Today we can play with different heroes and races and the gameplay and the graphic are amazing.

A lot of people play different computer games not only for entertainment but for living. The professional players or as they are called gamers play for money. In the Eastern countries electronic sports are a way of living and there are a lot of championships every year. In 2003 Bulgaria won the World Cyber Games (WCG) in the Warcraft division.
The interest in the computer games is increasing every single day. Many kids at the age of three start playing games for their entertainment.

Children prefer staying at home with the computer to playing football or basketball. But the real games will be always in our hearts because they have existed for thousands of years and they will be played after another thousand years. The world football championship, the Olympic Games and so many other famous competitions are favourite of the whole world. And even a lot of gamers leave their computers to watch some interesting match or something else.
But one thing is sure – people love to play both virtual and real games because this is one great way for entertainment.
