Nowadays, when there is a really passionate discussion about the influence of the aggression in video games on the behavior and development of young people, the popularity of games including shooting, killing, and similar activities slightly decreased. But still, one of the most popular free time activities for young people is playing video games, especially free shooting games online.
The online games are less harmful for young person’s mind, as they are far less realistic than the ones that we have to buy and install on our PC or put a disc into console. The range of subject matters included in such a games played online is really wide. The first and probably the most obvious is shooting to other person, materializing a character of a professional sniper or hitman. The second, but not less obvious is becoming a soldier and playing on the battlefield, where shooting is a part of a daily routine. Here we can name games such as Spec Ops or Last Action Hero Returns. But free shooting games does not always necessarily mean shooting to another people.
One of the most popular games in the whole history is Tanks. This is a great example of a shooting game, where there are no people. What is more, we can also call a shooting game the one, where we use a bow to shoot arrows to the target, or even where the main purpose is to shoot colorful balls in a way that they will constitute a row in one color and disappear as a result. And at last, honestly, who never played Duck Hunt? Has anyone felt more aggressive at the end of the game?
