We all know 2020 is the year of boredom, long days, long hours, and procrastination mood. The games we usually see on “incognito tabs” during work and school days, that we used to play behind our superiors’ backs now and then are now the ones who have got the worlds back on this time of crisis.
Despite being originally made to procure only a few minutes of gameplay at a time, you’d be able nowadays to find one or two games seriously meeting your expectations and getting you to devote some good solid hours to it (whether you enjoy role play, puzzles, and mazes, or any other type of games) given the very wide range the web presents to you.
We fetched down below 6 of the best elements among all this batch of browser games.
Number 1: Pokemon Showdown – RPG:
The game has great notoriety amongst the browser players even if, properly talking, it doesn’t belong to the “Pokemon game” franchise.
It is true that it might seem like just another battle game where you can either form a pokemon battle team perfectly suitable for you or if you feel pretty lucky just leave it to the algorithm hoping it would assemble a group of decent pokemon for you.
Until now everything is not so different from the actual video game, but the great thing here is that you don’t get to burn up all your time and patience only waiting for pokemon to gain back their energy. In Pokemon showdown, you just get into the game whenever it fits your mood.
Number 2: Adventure Quest – RPG:
If you’re into single-player role plays like “World of Warcraft” and you’re looking for a handier version of it to kill a bunch of hours of your day, AdventureQuest is the game for you. Featuring hundreds of armor sets and weapons, and a lot more enemies to fight, the game lets you choose the fighter you relate to the most within so many characters from the middle age whether you feel like playing a mage, a villain or an apostle.
Number 3: The Wiki Game – Puzzle:
Who doesn’t owe at least part of his school success to the great and mighty WIKIPEDIA? Just type whatever your research could be about, and then your A grade is one click away. This platform has gotten our back so much that it seems to have made us a little lazier lately. Don’t worry. Miss Wiki has got your back on this one too.
I bet you didn’t know Wikipedia has a game that triggers your sense of reflection and your skills in strategy. The rule is simple: try to reach the search page you defined previously all the way from a random one through the fewest links you could manage to click on.
Number 4: GeoGuessr – Geography:
This one specifically is for geography nerds and tripping geeks. If you think you know your world well enough, all you have to do is to guess the area where the algorithm randomly drops you, using the Google Street View navigation.
As the game gives you the option of playing in a specific area rather than worldwide, nobody’s able to predict what kind of scenery they’ll land on.
If you like a quite challenging play experience you’d be surely hoping to get dropped in some tricky deserted area where it’s harder and less likely to find signs, shops, or cars that would give you right away a hint on your approximate location. Speaking of which, the scoring system is progressive with the worse score being the farthest from your point.
Number 5: Lichess – Strategy:
Chess has been for centuries a number one choice for strategy lovers and people with a fair amount of spare time, and nothing has changed about that nowadays.
Our game here is an open-source browser server that either links randomly to your opponent or allows you to play against friends by sharing the link to your game whether you were a chess expert or a beginner.
Know that it is 100% free as it is held by donators and that it also gives you the chance to create an account if you’d like to follow your evolution or watch other games.
Number 6: Tetris – Puzzle
We don’t even need to parade all of Tetris uncountable perks. It’s not for no reason that it has found its place in every gaming device it could fit into, earning its place among the most notorious games in the world.
Well, the good news is, you can easily find it on the web, and you can play it for hours and hours with no need to invest in some pricey device.
The games you see here are obviously not the only ones you could find on the net. Fortunately, the web has thousands of games, enough to fit every personality and to satisfy every taste out there. And best of all there’s no investment, no engagement, no spending needed. You just hop into the game, play as much as it suits you and leave.
