What We Like About Time Management Games
The time management genre is one of the most successful video game genres out there today and definitely one of the oldest as well. There are lots of things to like about time management games, and in this article, we’ll be covering all the things that we enjoy so much when playing these games.
The key thing everyone, including us, likes about this genre is simply the fact that every single game that it provides is fast-paced. There’s basically never a dull moment in a time management game. During a level, you have tons of things to keep track of like how much resources you have, where your workers are, what your next move will be and these things always keep players on their feet. Anyone who’s ever played a good time management game before will tell you that when playing these games you should expect to never ever have a single idle moment. This fast-paced nature makes the gameplay highly engaging and attracts a pretty large audience of players.
One of the defining aspects of this genre and one that we certainly enjoy the most is that it forces players to adapt as quickly as they can. If you’ve played any time management game before then you’ll know that no two levels are ever the same. Every new level that you play will pose its own new challenges and have its own unique strategy that you must figure out in order to complete it. This constant changing in level design makes sure that players have to adapt on the fly whenever they’re presented with a new level and if they’re unable to do so then they’ll have to try again until they have finally done so.
Time management games aren’t just known for their stellar gameplay though. This genre has many highly popular series that come with gripping plots as well. The Delicious Emily series comes to mind when discussing this. This series follows the adventures of a young lady, Emily, from her youth right up to motherhood over the span of several game titles. She's a just very relatable character and is struggling through some issues that many of us have faced before in our lives. Not to mention, who can resist loving her young daughter, Paige, right?
Another thing we enjoy quite a bit is that these games usually come with high-quality visuals and sounds. Every single time management game worth its salt will not only give you some incredible gameplay experiences, but it will also provide you with crisp and immersive graphics alongside some really high-quality sound effects that enhance the game to a whole new level.
All said and done, the things we’ve mentioned above barely scratch the surface in all honesty. There are multitudes of things to like about the time management genre that haven’t been covered here and in light of all this, we’d like to recommend that you try a few of these games out for yourself to see first-hand how great they are.
