These towers can typically be upgraded and in some games, used to force the enemy to take a longer path. Here are my favorite free browser-based tower defense games.
Roleplaying and Romance
With Valentine's Day fast approaching, I thought it would be a good time to take a quick look at sex and romance inside massively multiplayer online games, where players celebrate everything from birthdays to weddings.

Most games do their best to keep it clean, but those seeking something more risque have a few virtual worlds to choose from as well.

Paying to Play: Is It Worth the Money?
Although the number of people subscribed to games that charge monthly fees for access continues to grow, we've all heard protests from those that refuse to pay any kind of regular fees to play a video game. Many are accustomed to the traditional retail offerings: buy the box, take it home, and play it forever, or until you get bored. By comparison, the $10-$15 per month a lot of MMOGs charge may look rather steep, but are they a rip-off, or are they good value for your entertainment dollars?

Family Feud Review (Facebook)
Family Feud, the long running TV game show, is best known as a group experience. Two families compete against one another, taking turns asking questions. But the Facebook version of the trivia show is a mostly solitary experience. It gets the basic experience right, but without much in the way of a social or multiplayer component, it misses a lot of what has made the Feud such a long running institution.
MMORPGs: Sandbox vs. Themepark
Games are typically a blend of different and sometimes exclusive design principles. This has led to use of descriptive terms like sandbox and themepark. Here is a definition of these terms for the uninitiated.

Top Free Online Soccer Games
I'm not sure if Soccer, or perhaps more accurately, Football, is the world's most popular sport, but if it isn't, it certainly comes close. Naturally, there have been vast numbers of soccer simulations and fantasy soccer games released over the years. Free online soccer games have also been growing in number, and they've come to offer a mixture of team management and action on the field. These are some of the better free online soccer games currently available.

Here's a closer look a this new F2P online tank game from Wargaming.net.
The History of Hidden Object Games
HOGs are one of the most popular genres of casual games. And leading the way is Big Fish Games. Not only is the company leading the way with its very popular game portal, but its internal development studios are also making some of the best HOGs out there, including the pioneering Mystery Case Files series and, more recently, the very well received Drawn games. I had the chance to speak with BFG's Adrian Woods about the history of the genre and just where it might be going in the future.
Facebook Tips & Tricks: Country Story
Playfish's Country Story provides a nice change of pace from the glut of farming games available on Facebook. Instead of simply tending to your garden and looking after animals, Country Story lets you take on quests, visit shops, and much more. The game also gives you the freedom to tackle things any way you see fit. But if this seems like a daunting prospect, don't despair.

The Dash series of time management games has tackled everything from food preparation to wedding planning, and now it tackles the world of television with Soap Opera Dash. With so many spin-offs you'd think that the formula would start to grow stale, but the latest game offers plenty of new twists to make it feel new again. Who would've thought looking after TV stars would be so hard?

Turbo Turbo Turbo Review (Browser)
As the name implies, Turbo Turbo Turbo is all about going fast. Well, going fast and smashing into other cars. And getting into the occasional bar fight. And maybe even getting your thumbs broken along the way. As with all of Adult Swim's games, TTT is absolutely crazy, but it's also fun, addictive, and holds an incredible amount of nostalgic charm.

Gangster City Review (Facebook)
With Gangster City, developer Playfish has jumped head first into the crowded world of Facebook mafia simulators. And while the game doesn't play all that different from other similarly themed games on the social network, in traditional Playfish style, it outdoes all of them in one important aspect: production values. Unlike the majority of Facebook games available, Gangster City looks good, which helps make up for its lack of originality in terms of gameplay.

Poker Blitz Review (Facebook)
Poker can be a baffling game. Unless you're well versed in the subtle nuances of the popular card game, it's difficult to get into. And, for the most part, the videogame representations of the game have been designed to appeal to this already in the know demographic. Not so with Poker Blitz. The latest game from Facebook developer Zynga is aimed at introducing new players to the world of poker and,for the most part, it succeeds.

Restaurant themed time management games are nothing new, but on Facebook the genre is woefully underrepresented. So thank the heavens for Heaven's Diner. The game brings the same core gameplay that has made games like Diner Dash so successful, only it's playable on Facebook, with all the expected features. There's even an iPhone app that lets you bring real world food into the game. In short, it's heavenly.

Secret of the Magic Crystals Review (PC)
Despite it's generic fantasy sounding name, Secret of the Magic Crystals is actually a simulation game that has you breeding horses. Mythical horses like unicorns, pegasus', and demon steeds. It's a unique concept, and the game does a good job of melding casual gameplay with strong simulation elements. Unfortunately, it's also far too repetitive, leading to a somewhat uneven experience.
