Social Components and HTML5 Games

  • Wayne Graham


Games are designed to distract us from our daily routines and allow us to engage in a world that would otherwise be impossible. A game that you play with others is, by definition, social. I fondly remember sitting around a table with friends playing board games. I also remember sitting around a living room with friends watching one of them play a game like Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! Friends that were not actively playing the game would also sit around, either yelling at the players that they were doing it wrong, or engaging in some type of competition for dibs on the next game. I admit here, probably for the first time, these nongaming interactions while gaming were responsible for more than one piece of broken furniture (sorry, Mrs. Jabbar).
