Video games are defined as any form of interactive games that utilizes a specialized electronic device, a computer, a mobile phone, a television, or other display screen. Committing to the gamer life can be expensive at times because a console can cost over S$399 while it can cost S$60 per game.
Thankfully, you do not have to spend too much to enjoy awesome video games, because there are several ways to play without emptying your wallet or breaking the law. Here are some of them:
1. GET FREEMIUM
Freemium are mobile phone or Smartphone gaming Apps that are free to download but require payment to unlock additional features. Most of the times, you do not need to spend a dollar if you are really patient in waiting. Besides, you get to play famed games such as Angry Birds Star Wars II, Real Racing 3, and Candy Crush Saga for free!
2. GO RETRO
Go retro by purchasing cheaper and older Nintendo models or game consoles online. For example, I found a red Nintendo DS for S$50 and Nintendo DS games for S$5. But, I am sure that you can still bargain for a better price.
3. PLAY ONLINE
As a teenager, I frequent online websites that offer wide collections of free video games. And, my favorite of those websites are: free80sarcade.com, y8.com, and girlsgogames.com.
