Blowing Off Some Steam with Casual Games

So, tonight I resolved to do some writing, but I'm just not in the mood. It's been a really long day, and I probably should blow off some steam to make sure that I eventually get some sleep tonight. There's nothing on TV (bummer), so I was checking my email and I stumbled on an awesome casual games site. Those of you who know me, know that I am a huge fan of casual games.

I have always loved video games, but I have learned over the years that most games for the big consoles are way too complicated to learn. It almost sucks the fun out of them. Or, maybe it's just that I don't have the time I used to have to devote to gaming. The only games I play on the big consoles are kids games these days, or games like Dance Dance Revolution. That's why the Wii is on my wishlist. In any case, casual games are awesome, because you can play them for just a few minutes and have your fun. No need for lengthy tutorials and such.

So, I'm checking it out now. It appears that online games are free and downloadable casual games have free trials and cost less than $10. Of course, this means that I have to play some puzzle games and some word games. I'm sure I'll be a while... but I will write more about my favorite games later.

Hi there,

I just wanted to let you know about an addition to a site I work for, http://www.proprofs.com/games/c/brain-training/

We've just launched Brain Games, which has a feature that allows users to create their own custom games and quickly upload them to any webpage!
