From playing chess on a regular website to battling it out with dozens on PUBG, online gaming has come a long way over the years.
Modern-day titles create a mind-blowing experience with improved graphics, AR/VR, and the ability to play with your friends on Facebook.
Let's look at the biggest elements that make online gaming such a treat for everyone.
Back in the day, owning a multiplayer game meant finding a person who loved that thing just as much, a situation that often created problems.
However, when it comes to online gaming, there's already a community of millions of like-minded people.
You can pick the online game you like and connect and play with people having the same interest, no matter where they are.
Previously, you needed a computer to play a game, but now, the phone in your pocket can instantly connect you for a quick match.
Specifically, the advent of highly-powerful smartphones has created a way to play games anywhere, anytime.
The best part is, this not just holds true for lightweight card games, or word/board games but also for graphics-intensive titles like Call of Duty.
The powerful hardware of modern-day smartphones has also made it easier for developers to offer titles with super-impressive graphics, audio, and visual effects.
Whether you are playing rummy online or something like PUBG, the experience is just as good as that of playing on a PC.
Also, you get access to several interesting in-game features, like connecting with friends, talking to them while playing.
Along with the enhanced in-game features, many titles also leverage the power of virtual and augmented reality, taking gaming to a whole new level.
You can immerse yourself in a virtual gaming world (using a headset) to kill enemies or can augment the real world with virtual elements and characters, much like how it works on Pokemon Go.
