Game review: GameTap

I have been a GameTap subscriber for a long time. GameTap is an online video game service. They don't rent video games. Instead you download games through their software and play them on your computer. For $10 per month, you can download as many games as you like. There is a huge variety of games available. My five-year old daughter can play educational games such as Arthur's Kindergarten: Trouble in Arthur's Treehouse, most of the JumpStart game catalog and Millie's Math House. Though the kids' games section isn't completely filled with educational games. There are also fun games like Pajama Sam and Putt-Putt. I've found these games to be a wonderful addition to my daughter's collection.

GameTap isn't just for kids though. I have played a majority of the Sam & Max games, which are exclusively available on the GameTap service. For those of you looking for a bit of nostalgia, there are older games too. BurgerTime, Zaxxon and Space Invaders are all here along with the ever-popular Worms games. And if you really need to let off some steam, try one of the 82 fighting games. In total, there are almost 1450 games available right now on the service.

This really is one of my favorite monthly services that I subscribe to. There is something that every member of my family would enjoy playing and they are adding new games all the time. It's definitely cheaper than buying new or used games at the store and you don't even have to leave your house! A win on all sides.
