What are the best Golf Games ?
One of my favorite pass times is playing golf with my best friends at my local course, there really is nothing like thae feeling of getting a par on one hole to step upto the next tee and then duffing your next shot just a couple of yards in front of you. Of course all your friends will understand and probably jeer you on for the next couple of times you take your first shot, if this seems familiar you probably are like 99% of golfers out there passionate about your sport but not likely to be playing The Masters any time soon. So where better to get your inner Pro golfer on other than playing your favorite selection of golf games.
As you may be fully aware the choice of golf video games is quite huge but what are the best golf games well firstly every possible platform has golf games available and they all target different types of gamer based on what type of gamer you are.
So then for example if you are a really serious gamer wanting a rewarding experience you may consider golf games for PC or one of the online simulation golf games on the Internet. The premier golf game on PC is without doubt the Tiger Woods Franchise in terms of stunning graphics and attention to detail I struggle to find another game that comes close, add to that the fact it is possible to customise your own golfer and then progress them through the world rankings meaning the level of playability again cant be topped. The only PC based game that comes close would have to be the internet based World Championship Golf, this game takes many realism cues from the Tiger Woods game but moulds them into a fully competitive online arena allowing you to compete with other users real time from across the world.
Many people who enjoy golf games whilst off the actual golf course are not all die hard golfers and no other example shows this than in golf games for kids more specifically golf games for Wii the Nintendo Wii has opened up gaming to a much wider range of user and due to its easy to use controls is a perfect platform for kids. Again the Tiger Wood franchise is available on the Nintendo Wii as well as many other fun games.
It wouldnt be right to talk about golf games in general if we didnt recognise the newest way to enjoy your computer golf game fix and this is looking at golf games for iPad, if you are fortunate enough to own an iPad a quick search for golf games will show up a fair few options to suit all types of gamers already mentioned. Again Tiger Woods pops up for his iPad adapted game but dont overlook the game Real Golf for a valid alternative. For the more casual gamer check out Stick Golf for some tricky level based golf action.
