The Internet is your Playground

Never before have we had so many places to go and while away some time playing games online. All you need is a browser – PC or mobile – and an internet connection, and away you go. With such a huge choice, it’s hard to decide what to play, so we’ve narrowed down some of the options for you.

Retro Games

If you grew up in the 80s and 90s, you might feel a little envious of the kids of today, who never have to endure poor graphics and tinny music with their modern high-definition video games. At the same time, some of those early games showed such simple ingenuity of gameplay that they keep pulling us back to them. If you fancy a game of original Zelda or Super Mario, there are lots of sites out there providing free retro games to play on your browser. It’ll be just like you have your old Gameboy back.

Casino Games

Want to make it interesting? Make your game playing a bit more exciting by playing casino games for a cash stake. There are far too many online casinos to list, with new ones being released every day. Make sure you do your research when it comes to choosing the right casino for you. There are some truly excellent ones, as well as some that are not so great. To make the right choice, look out for the licence the casino holds, see if they offer games from well-known developers, and read some online reviews.

Brain Games

Playing almost any kind of game has been shown to stimulate the brain and develop critical thinking skills. However, there are certain types of games that are more specifically designed to train the brain. These range from skill and strategy games like chess, to word games like Scrabble, to memory games. All can be found online. There are also plenty of quizzes out there to test your general or specific knowledge.
