Perhaps a generation ago many people knew about gaming money but then most people thought about Monopoly money but today with all the different online games which are being played, there are all kinds of gaming money, a different one for most games. An example of this is that in the game Fortnite, the name of the money used is known as vbucks. One difference with this money and the old Monopoly money is that you could only earn Monopoly money in the course of the game whilst vbucks can be bought with real cash. With the game Fortnite and some other online games, there is also another way to get a free vbuck or two but not everyone is aware of how it is done but there are websites which can tell them. Today, like Monopoly and other board games in the past, online gaming has become very popular and one of the main differences between online gaming and those traditional board games is that online gaming can be played with or against anyone in the world, providing both or all players have an internet connection. This is made even more possible by the fact that the online games today can often be played on any app and not only on PCs from their homes which means people can literally play anywhere at any time, a factor which also plays a role in making online gaming so popular. Although it is believed that the most popular activity online is visiting social media sites, gaming is gaining in popularity on a daily basis and gamers now even have their own social media sites where they can learn how to more easily get to the next level on a game or tips on just how to be a better player. Some social media sites are dedicated to gamers and as such are often available on Xbox or other gaming machines as well as PCs and an assortment of apps. Gaming as an activity is not only popular but it is safe so adults and children can play in safety whilst still getting their adrenalin flowing and being competitive. Becoming competitive is of course perhaps an essential part of life as people compete for jobs or promotions and businesses compete against each other. Whilst the competitiveness in gaming is friendly as it is in sports, the ability to keep trying to improve yourself and do better compared to others can be useful in the workplace and perhaps even in life itself. With the popular online gaming has attained, new games are being developed on a regular basis and many of the previous games which became exceptionally popular are being re-released after updating. Online gaming can, however, become a little addicting as can be seen by people playing on a bus to work, on their coffee breaks or even playing instead of eating lunch. Due to online gaming being relatively new, it is yet to be seen if their addictiveness is life-long or just temporary.
