Choose A Game

By

There are a remarkable number of online games available, and they vary dramatically in terms of complexity and cost. Previews, reviews, demos, and free trials are all good ways to find out which games suit your tastes. You'll also find lists of games broken down by genre, and my recommendations for games of various kinds.

Free Games

Enjoying an Internet game does not have to cost a lot of money. Free online games come in various forms. Some can be played right through a browser window, while others require a client that is made available as a free download. While certain games generate no revenue at all, others are supported by ads or sell in-game extras in addition to providing a free product.

Game Reviews

Not sure which game you want to put your time and money into? The hype can be deceptive, so reviews, playable demos, screenshots, and gameplay movies can all be helpful when choosing your next game.

Top Picks

I can't play every Internet game on the market, but with help from readers and the game community at large, I try to establish which games in particular genres are most worth recommending. An effort is made to keep the lists fairly current, and the emphasis is more on recent titles, although there are definitely some classics in the mix. Your feedback counts, so make a post or email me if you have something to share.

Previews and Interviews

The next big game may not be far off, and if you follow the news you may see it coming. Previews, beta impressions, and interviews with game developers are also good ways to find out whether an upcoming release might interest you.
