Top 10 Free Online Games

As a lot of you may be aware, I have been working on a free online game which should be live before Christmas. Playing online games is fun and most games can now be played by many players from all around the world (poker being the most popular). Free online games are growing in popularity simply because they are a great way for gamers to get their feet wet without any risk to pocket and sacrifice to excitement and thrills.

Here is a list of the top 10 free online games:

Farmville
An addictive Facebook game, Farmville allows you to play farmer, harvesting crops and raising livestock. Going up various levels, allows you to unlock more features to the game and Facebook friends are your neighbours, helping you through the process.

Mafia Wars
Tap into your inner-gangsta with Mafia Wars, another free online game that found its beginnings on Facebook and is increasingly popular amongst users. A crime game that allows you to set up your own Mafia gang (look out Al Pacino), selecting from your friends crime partners, together with which you’ll fight mafia wars in this game of harrowing survival. Fight other players online, complete tasks, and collect rewards as you expand your crime empire.

Sims
A cleverly designed game, Sims allows you to create, manage and control the lives of tiny computerized peeps that live in a small suburb just outside SimCity. Cool effects and music, cutesy characters and tremendous freedom to do with these lives whatever takes your fancy make this a fan favourite online game to play.

2ndLife
Once you visit this virtual world you’ll never want to leave. Building a second life in this virtual haven, from creating a customized avatar to purchasing land and building a home, it is a game for sophisticated virtual citizens that are committed to creating a better place.

Cafe World
For those budding culinary masters, Cafe World allows you to run a restaurant of your own. Everything from picking the menu, preparing dishes and cooking and baking, you work your way up in the fast-paced, high-pressure culinary world. Your Cafe gets rated as well by guests.

Gear Quest
Moving away from the cutesy stuff, Gear Quest takes you in the dark underworld where you must uncover ancient weaponry, gear and magic to fight for survival and truth.

Online Bingo
Free online bingo is one of the best ways to learn how to play bingo if you are a newbie and fantastic fun for seasoned veterans of the game with absolutely no risk of losing any money.  Nowadays, bingo is one of the most easily accessible online games, providing the same amiable bingo hall atmosphere with chat rooms where people can enjoy a friendly chinwag or talk strategy and tips.

Video Games
The range of video games available online is simply staggering. There is something for everyone –kid-friendly to teenage-trendy and adult games (including women-focused).  Unlike home game consoles, with virtual online games you have the ability (if you so choose to) to connect with random, like-minded people and pit your skills against theirs.

Board Games
All manner of familiar traditional board games such as Monopoly can be found online. A great, simple game it is a fun way to spend a few hours of the day and a popular alternative for those that aren’t into mainstream casino games.

Brain Teasers
Playing games online doesn’t just involve dabbling into long-established casino games. It can be an educational experience as well, with a whole slew of brain-challenging games like Sudoku and the like. Those that are looking for something a bit more intellectual and challenging can find such alternatives a great to keep their minds sharp.
Obviously, gaming has reached a golden era, set to reach new heights as innovation, new business models, and unprecedented growth continue to push boundaries and open new avenues in gaming. And starting out with free online games is the best way to go about learning how to play any game and discover which sites offer the best quality and safety in gaming. Of course, if you want to get in on real money action you will need to begin playing for real money.
