The Best Games to Play Online

Not everyone wants to spend a ton of money on video games, but if you enjoy playing on your PC or mobile, there are plenty of free Flash games available to while away the time and have some fun. With so many on the market, it’s hard to know where to start, so here is a short guide to some of the best games and places to play.

Game of Bombs

This is based on the PlayStation multiplayer Bomberman. The free version does a pretty decent job of recreating the excitement of the original, and it retains the multiplayer feature so that you can play with participants from all around the world

Online Casinos

Not technically free, but with some luck and skill you may come out with a profit. Online casinos provide hours of fun, with games ranging from skilled card games like poker and blackjack to games of chance like the many different online slots. It’s worth taking a bit of time to find a good one, so read some reviews and check out the licence and the terms and conditions before signing up.


This one has been around for over 15 years, and it’s officially the most popular free massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), with a staggering 200 million players registered. The game’s world is a quasi-medieval setting with a fantastic twist, so expect characters like dragons and goblins in play.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

This is a real gem, and one of the oldest online games in existence. It was created by the author of the cult classic book series, Douglas Adams, almost 35 years ago. It’s old, and text-based, so there are no flashy graphics, but for fans of the books this is an absolute must.
