  • Casual gamer is a loosely defined term used to describe a type of video game player whose time or interest in playing games is limited compared with a hardcore gamer.Casual gamers can conceivably consist of any people who show more than a passing interest in video games, therefore it is difficult to categorize them as a group. For this reason, games which attempt to appeal to the casual player tend to strive for simple rules and ease of game play, the goal being to present a pick-up-and-play experience that people from any age group or skill level could enjoy.

  • Advergaming is the practice of using video games to advertise a product, organization or viewpoint. The term \"advergames\" was coined in January 2000, and later mentioned by Wired's \"Jargon Watch\" column in 2001. It has been applied to various free online games commissioned by major companies. With the growth of the internet, advergames have proliferated, often becoming the most visited aspect of brand websites and becoming an integrated part of brand media planning in an increasingly fractured media environment. Advergames theoretically promote repeated traffic to websites and reinforce brands. Users choosing to register to be eligible for prizes can help marketers collect customer data. Gamers may also invite their friends to participate, which could assist promotion by word of mouth, or \"viral marketing\".Branded Flash Games are small, interactive, easy- to-install forms of entertainment that can be placed anywhere on your website. Choose from several ready to play games (categories include sports, puzzles and memory), or contact us about creating a one-of-a-kind branded flash game experience! You can insert banners, rotate ads, or even insert your favorite quotes to entertain your audience. Best of all, there are no complicated downloads; all your visitors have to do is click and play!Branded Flash Games can add instant and compelling content to children's sites, charities and businesses alike. They also offer a fantastic creative outlet. For example, if your site advertises a bar or restaurant, BOSSdev can create an flash game experience that looks and feels just like your establishment! In addition, each  flash game can be branded with your company's colors and logo so that you are always at the forefront of your visitors' minds! Advertise sales, point out site updates, even include ticker-style menus to entice your customers during breaks in their games. The possibilities are virtually endless!
  • In 2008 MTV Networks surveyed free online gamers regarding the types of advertising they were willing to accept in exchange for playing such games. Banner ads and advertiser-sponsored games got the highest responses, at 47% and 42%, respectively.
