Hey folks, today we would like to address again the subject of Stickman Games. Before, when we wrote about them, we described them and maybe even categorizing them by the content sampled from several individual games, but right now we would like to discuss what generally makes them popular and how stickman games as a genre came into the spotlight and have been instituted in an online culture by bored, creative minds.
So. How do Stickman Games compare to other games that you run into on the world wide web? Instead of researching the subject like crazy, we may want to assume that there is a demand for stickman games and that there will be people out there to supply what is needed. Besides, stickmen make a largely broad genre in the flash game culture. There are no specific characters that are protected by law. This means that the there are no boundaries as far as who can make stickman games and the amount of the games that can be produced because there is not a single person or company that can claim ownership for the idea. Therefore, flash developers aren’t in fear infringing on sensitive material when they are just trying to come up with a simple yet fun idea for a silly flash game for people who just want to want a little break from the daily grind. So if you are bored at home, work, or school (and you can get away with it), find yourself some stickman games and be entertained by how well simple animation and gruesome cartoon-style deaths go together so well to help you kill some time and make you smile.
With that in mind, Let’s go back a ways and concentrate on how stickmen found their place in games. I believe that this all started when they were popularized in flash videos. A key to this popularity was Stickdeath.com. Even though stickdeath.com has isn’t as viral as it used to be (we can’t recommend it with a good conscience anymore), back in the day, it was a new and different way to pass the time. At any rate, I would dare to say that after a while of people saturating their brains with easily animated stickmen being killed in every way imaginable, those people who could program or develop games decided to take the leap and evolve stick death from simple flash videos to stickman games. A way to show how much better stickman games are than stickdeath videos is to really compare how and where you can find each.
So where do you find these videos? If you are looking for any amount of humor or any sense of quality at all, you will more than likely visit the site I just mentioned above. That is about as far as you can go. I mean you can try searching YouTube, but it’s doubtful that you are going to find much. But if you want to get creative stickman games, you really only have to perform a simple web search, and you will come up with a great multitude of diverse websites ready to satisfy your stick person needs.
So it is pretty self explanatory that while stickmen caught our attention and reigned on the web in the form of flash videos for a while, they have done distracted adults and absent minded kids everywhere a big favor and have made their way onward to games. Lots and lots of games. So if you want to waste time and be entertained for a while, play yourself some Stickman Games.
