Question regarding game playing online

Hi,

I was just wondering about playing games online. I usually play the games that are online for free. I'm poor.

I downloaded one of those deluxe versions of a game, where you get one hour of free playing time. How the heck do they know when your hour is up. It's making me crazy, some games I find that I kind of like are the deluxe ones, then they run out, some of them don't have an online version so I'm out.

Anyways, I was just wondering how the heck they know the hr is up. After the hour my game just stopped, and a thing came up that said your time is up, click her to buy it now !

Thanks,
Linda

hi there linda

I used to be an online gaming addict,

Have you tried the yahoo online gaming comunity ?

Ever since msn stopped its old style game zone, things have been quieter

However, their is still gamespy

If you have broadband access at home, online gaming is the way to go for free play

an, yes, the game monitors you computer clock automatically, plus some have simple counters that automatically time usage

Hi Linda! I think they monitor your computer clock. Bugs me though why some games end earlier than you expect they would. Ever tried online casinos?

Nah, I bought a few games and one is a casino game. I like puzzle and arcade type of stuff. I have the one casino game and I really only like the video poker on it. Thanks, you're right though, some of the games I can't believe the one hour goes so fast, it seems like 15 mins and then I can't tell if I want to spend the money on the game because I didn't that far into it in an hr.

Have a good day.
