Introduction Different computer games have different genres, meaning it is a different kind or type of game. They are used to keep people entertained and occupied for a short or long period of time, but what makes computer games bad? Main uses of computer games The main use of computer games is to keep people entertained. The computer games have different genres and introduce gamers to different situations and problems, so that they could be ready for such events, such as driving and playing sports. Obviously, there are some games that cannot be real, such as Doom, which involves monsters, and as we all know, monsters aren't real, on planet Earth!
