In the gaming world, it’s undoubtedly the case that looks can be deceiving. What may appear to be an incredibly simple game may actually be a game where there’s serious concentration and skill involved. But this doesn’t mean they’re any less fun or enjoyable, as the games below prove.
We’re kick-starting this list of games you would think are simple but need concentration with the classic that is Battleships. In short, many can fall into the false sense of security of thinking that in Battleships, you place your own ships, hope for the best, and do your best at guessing where your opponent’s ships are. However, concentration is required because you must remember the areas on the map you have hit previously to work out where the ships are you’re attempting to sink are positioned. So a lack of concentration could see you miss out on a chance to win, especially when playing the game online.
Now, we could have picked out specific slots to include here, but we’re going to go with a more generic take. The reason for this is because that video slots, as everyone knows, which is critical here, are based on chance and luck. So, you could fall into the trap of thinking that you hit spin and hope for the best. However, this isn’t necessarily the case. One can argue the same could be said about some of the most exciting online slots, as they are simple but require some focus and attention, especially when the bonus features come around. You see, if you make the wrong decision or decide to gamble when you shouldn’t, it could result in a loss occurring. And nobody wants that to happen, do they?
In a way, we’re sticking with the gambling theme for this one, but this time its bingo we’re going to explore in more detail. Bingo is one of those games that has been around for decades, and it’s stood the test of time because it’s modernized and evolved. This has led to many online versions of the game being produced, which has taken a lot of the actual work out of it for players. But again, this can lead you to think that you don’t have to concentrate, which isn’t the way to be thinking. You have to keep track of how many numbers are “to go,” even if they’re being checked off automatically by the game.
We’re going to end the list by including a franchise that has spawned many successful releases. But, what has been common across the board where Street Fighter is concerned is to hear it’s a simple “button-bashing” title. And, in some ways, it is, for people who want to play that way. However, for those who wish to take the game more seriously, by concentrating, they will be able to pull off moves at the right time, rather than just pressing buttons at random and hoping for the best. And by doing so, they’ll come out on top more often than not.
