Video games create fantasy space in which we play. These are often enjoyable because they are an escape from everyday life. Some, however, want to become a part of our day.

Asynchronous Play
STYLE OF PLAY

Asynchronous multiplayer are usually competitive but can be cooperative. Unlike other games, you don't have to play at the same time. Perhaps your opponent is in a different time zone, you are playing years after the person you are competing against, or perhaps you have a job or family commitments that the only game time is when the person you are playing against is in bed.
