Why can't online games be paused?
- Apr, 10 2023
Online games are a great way for people to stay entertained, but why can't they be paused? Many games are designed with a "live" element, meaning that it is difficult to pause the game and resume it at a later time. This is due to the fact that the game is constantly evolving with the in-game events, characters and the environment. Furthermore, pausing would also create an imbalance in multiplayer games, as other players would be forced to wait for the paused player to resume. As such, developers have to take into account a variety of elements when creating a game that cannot be paused in order to keep the game fair and balanced.
