The 20 best online games you should play today


There’s a reason flash games were wildly popular in the late 90s/early 2000s, and although we’ve since quietly moved to HTML5 as the standard, the best online games have still managed to impress across the board. 

Thanks to services like, these games are a nice way to waste a little time, even in 2018. And the best part about them is that they require absolutely no time or money to get into. Just click and play..

From simple text-based adventures to Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games (MMORPGs) that feature impressive 3D graphics, there’s a surprisingly wide variety to choose from.

There is a catch, though. Certain people might experience possible compatibility problems. For instance, Chrome doesn’t support the 3D game engine Unity while Firefox, Safari and Opera do. 

However, most of the time the same game that needs Unity support will still be available as a separate app in the Chrome Web Store. So, if you’re not ready to break your commitment to Chrome, you can still get play some of the best online games.
