All Australians do not just play rugby or toss a boomerang around! In fact, there is a growing culture of playing games in Australia. Many people are enjoying various types of games as a means by which to relax and decompress, after working full and long days at work. Many people do not think of Australians as a nation who are particularly enamoured with online games, but there are many Australians who love to play games. Here are 5 games you did not know Australians are playing.
Bingo has undergone a rather drastic make-over since its heyday in the 1950s, and we rather quite like the new bingo better! Suited to a modern lifestyle, you can now play online bingo instead of having to find a live bingo game. All centralized on a single app or website, you are easily able to join bingo games when it is most convenient for you to do so. In addition, all good bingo sites should have a cool built in chat feature that allows you to chat to other players in a casual environment. This is great as it helps to mimic the social atmosphere that you would experience at a live bingo game. Knowing this, it should come as no surprise to hear that many Australians have become quite avid online bingo fans. You can also win a lot of money by playing bingo –so this is an added incentive to playing!
Grand Theft Auto, or known as GTA for short, is a wildly popular computer and console game in the United States. However, with its violent nature, many have assumed that Australians would not like the game due to its sometimes violent or slightly lewd content. However, and this may come as a shock –Australians really do seem to love Grand Theft Auto, with sales in Australia doing particularly well.
Minecraft is a worldwide phenomenon, with mostly a younger crowd enjoying this simple building game. But there are also a lot of adults who enjoy playing this game too as it is relatively easy and a good way to spend time with your children who play the game. Many Australians have become hooked on playing this cute and fun game.
Scrabble is an old, but classic game that, like bingo is experiencing a resurgence in popularity, especially in Australia. Scrabble is a word making game that really challenges your mind, and it is also appropriate for children –provided that they are playing against peers matched in vocabulary development. It is also a great family game that some Australians like to play on teams for a twist.
StarCraft is an online game that requires a certain amount of strategic thinking. For those who are looking for something a bit more difficult, this is a great choice. Many Australians play StarCraft daily and enjoy reasoning out various forms of macro and micro strategies that can be played in this game.
