Upgrade your gaming empire: 10 best games WordPress themes

Posted: 25 Jul 2014 04:42 PM PDT


Games create a second reality. They can turn a common office worker into a daemon-slayer or car races. They can make you a hero of a story worth reading, or let you communicate in the environment that never existed on Earth.

But why are they called a second reality? What we get from them is not less real then what we get out of our daily experiences. We develop our will-power, reinforce desire to win and overcome the obstacles. We learn to give everything a second try, not to be afraid of difficulties and misfortunes and, sometimes, even to cheat in order to get what we want. Gaming space is a training ground where we model our behavior and reassert our winner approach to life. Moreover, game world is probably the best place to distress and blow the steam off. It is much more effective then releasing anger and tension by punching a pillow. Games reward you for beating the obstacles and reestablish healthy belief in one’s competence.

At present games win over audiences with their high resolution graphics, atmospheric landscapes and elaborated elements that make in-game experience seem real. To effectively present different games a website should also reflect these concepts. Being tech-savvy, atmospheric and carefully designed, it will attract gamers rather then push them off with its outdated look. A gaming website that reflects what people are looking for in games is the best place for joining and staying in touch with the gaming community of today. Fortunately, you do not have to design it all from scratch like back in the 90s and can get a high-quality eye-candy just within 15 minutes with a predesigned theme.

Why a Pre-designed Theme Beats a Custom Design?

1) It lets you win time. You do not have to take trouble over finding a right designer and elaborating everything from scratch. No long expectation as it is already there.

2) It saves your funds up to 10 times. I bet you have alternatives how you can productively use them.

3) It is easy to install and adjust. Multiple options will give it a unique outlook that beats custom designs. Technical support is available 24/7.

4) Great images that come with the theme become your property. You can reuse them as long as you want.
