Why did Microsoft made games on the computer?
That's a good question! Probably for the obvious reason, Bill
Gate wants the user to be able to 'work hard and play hard'. But
the actual reason, you may have to ask him personally. Anyway,
according to doctor a person cannot work non-stop, that person will
die! He/She will naturally finds way to relax such as watching
television, read magazine/books, have some snacks, and not
forgetting-playing games! If you're asking about those simple
built-in graphical games such as Minesweeper, Solitaire,
Pinball(Window XP) which comes with our operating system when we
just bought it newly, i guess the reason is because computer users
expected some kind of leisure program such as games in a normal
But if you're asking me about those CD/DVD games which were
nowadays a die-die-must-buy such as Halo, Age-of-Empire, Dungeon
Siege. I bet it is one of a way to booast Microsoft business
against other game developer company such as Blizzard etc.
Besides, which kids nowadays do not play games on computer? It
is indeed very hard to resist for kids.
