Chritter’s Top 10 Browser Games

Games, like people, come in a wide variety of shapes, colors, origins, and places.  You have console games, PC games, mobile games, handheld games, tabletop games, browser games and even LARPs.  So anyone that wants to play a game can find one that fits them. And everyone has their own preference.  

Today’s top 10 list only touches on the vast array of games that are available in your favorite browser.  There are many gamers who don’t consider browser games to be worth the consideration.  But you simply have to give it a chance and you can find one that will suck hours of your life away as you play.  Sure, they might be simpler than other games.  But that doesn’t make some of them any less involved and engaging.  Or any less a game.

So here is this month’s Top 10 List, discussing 10 browser games that you might like to play.  Let us know what you think of the list.  Or if you have any you would like to add to the list, let us know that too!

Note:  Some of these games are also available in other formats, like mobile.  But this list isn’t about that.  So if you wanna know more, go visit their site and find out!

1. Slither.io

 

Slitherio

Take the premise of Agar.io.  And smash it together with the classic game Snake.  There you have Slither.io in a nutshell. And man, is this game fun!  You are a snake and it is your job to go around and swallow bits of colored light orbs so you can grow bigger.  All while avoiding ramming your head into another worm which will kill you and make your body into little bits of colored light orbs for other snakes to eat so they can grow bigger!  It’s a jungle out there, man.

 

2. A Dark Room

 

A Dark Room

This game has taken more than it’s fair share of my idle time, I swear! A Dark Room is a seemingly simple text-based game that starts with a single decision to light a fire.  From there you build a village and explore the area till you find a better place to be.  This is a game that continues to advance even when you aren’t paying attention to it.  You can restart it, or even save your game data so you can move it to another computer and not have to start all over!  Try it out.  But only if you have a need for a time suck.  Seriously.

 

3. Pretend You’re Xyzzy

 

Xyzzy

Have you ever played Cards Against Humanity?  There is a made up 90% chance that you have.  But if you haven’t… did you like it under your rock?  This game is hilarious and is made much more hilarious when playing with drunk people or with people who have never had their minds twisted… I mean, played it before.

Pretend You’re Xyzzy is the unofficial online version of Cards Against Humanity.  The layout is rather cramped and rudimentary and the chat could use some enhancements.  But when it comes to the act of playing Cards Against Humanity against people online anytime you want, this game is great!

I am not responsible for any corruption that you may or may not suffer from trying this game.  Fair warning.

Crymson’s Top 10 Mobile Games

Sitting in your dentist’s office? Completely board during that important meeting? Want to avoid talking during family dinners? We have you covered! Here is the list of my top 10 mobile games. Now, these are obviously games that I have played; I can’t add on games I know nothing about. If there is a game you want me to try and review let me know!

10.Fallout Shelter

Fallout Shelter, for your daily dose of Fallout 4, when you can’t play or can’t afford it. This game is free, but after time will run out of things to entertain you despite Bethesda’s new content.

9. Ascension

Ascension is based off the board game Ascension. The game is free but there are add-ons that you can purchase, giving you access to the game’s expansions. If you love the board game, you will love the mobile app and vice versa. Make your friends download it and you can play with them, random strangers or the AI.

8. How To Train Your Dragon: Rise of Berk

Probably the cheesiest game on my list is HTTYD: Rise of Berk. I LOVE HTTYD. I started playing this on Facebook before downloading it to my phone. If you love Dragons or HTTYD, you will find this adorable.

Thia’s Top 10 Upcoming Games of 2016

Well, with the New Year, winter is also here. Thankfully, with it will be coming some new games to keep us entertained. Here are ten games, in no particular order, to get excited for in 2016!

1. One Night Ultimate Vampire by Bezier Games

Okay, so those of you who follow our Facebook know that I love tabletop games. You also will know that Werewolf is one of my absolute favorites. One Night Ultimate Vampire is similar, but with Vampires. Like with Werewolf this is a 3-10 player game where everyone gets a role and it only takes one vampire to win the game. Best part is that it is available now. Bring on the Vampires!

2. Firewatch

Due to be released on February 9, 2016 for PC, Mac, Linux and PS4, Firewatch is going to be a first-person adventure. It has a few twists, including that it is decision-based, which I always enjoy. You start off playing as Henry, who is searching for two missing women, which sounds easy enough, but I’m sure has a few twists. I have heard teasers that it will also be spooky.

3. Dues Ex: Mankind Divided
deus ex

Due to be released February 23, 2016 for PC, Xbox One and PS4. Yes, it is here. The remake of the game from fifteen years ago. Set in the year 2029, it is an open world game. There will be different endings for every player since this game will also be decision-based.

Top 10 Games of 2015

As we welcome the new year and all its exciting prospects and hopeful game releases, I’d like to look back on some of the games that made 2015 one of my favorite and most memorable years for gaming. This list is biased, of course, so here’s a bit about me: I’m a twenty-something writer/editor who has been gaming since Sega Genesis, and I have since developed a fierce love for role-playing games and anything with a great storyline or unique playability. I also love playing games with my friends (I mean, who doesn’t?), and I’m mostly Sony and Nintendo all the way, as far as consoles go. These factors weighed heaviest on my Top 10 of 2015, but there were still some outliers that really entertained me. I didn’t get to play all the games I wanted to – nor did I even get to hit up some of the most talked-about titles like Undertale or Life is Strange – but I did discover a lot of new favorites this year.

10. Samurai Warriors 4 IISamurai Warriors 4 II
I’ll be the first to admit hack-and-slash games can get really mindless really quickly, but I have a major soft spot for Koei’s Musou games. I attribute this fondness largely due to the local co-op, but this reboot of Samurai Warriors 4 added some features that really improved the gameplay. Character switching allows players to alternate between two characters during battle, which kept me from getting bored of the same ol’ button smashing of previous games. There are also a lot more combos you can gain with experience, and combined with the new “rage mode” (aka “but what about SECOND musou?”), there was actually more strategy involved. It’s still a Dynasty/Samurai Warriors game, so you can’t take it too seriously or expect too much, but it definitely is satisfying the see your kill score go up past 1,000. This has definitely been my favorite duo couch co-op video game of the year.

9. Exploding Kittens: NSFW Edition (Card game)Exploding Kittens
Like the Kickstarter promised, Exploding Kittens is horribly hilarious. I am in love with the card designs, and find myself cracking up randomly throughout the game. There is sort of a Sword of Damocles feel to the game each time you draw a card, and I can truthfully say that sometimes I have never been more relieved to draw a card featuring a fat cat wearing itty bitty kitty bikinis. The humor is definitely the charm of this game, and while I wish dead players had more to do while those still in game tried to kill each other with their kitty arsenals, the game is fast-paced enough that the losers don’t have to wait long before a new game can start. That being said, I’m really hoping for some expansions to add more features to the game, as the card options were a little bare. Still, the concept is fun and there isn’t too much of a learning curve, so it’s accessible to the (more mature) family. If you’re a fan of The Oatmeal, I highly recommend getting this game.

8. Magicka 2
Magicka 2
Now here’s a game you can really enjoy playing with a larger group of friends. Magicka 2 is a light-hearted little game that allows up to four players at a time run around co-op killing your generic little baddies. The fun, however, is in the extensive combo spell-casting system that lets you create any number of element amalgamations to target or defend yourself or others. The controls are a little confusing at first, and the sheer amount of combinations you can cast is definitely overwhelming and hard to remember, but that’s really the fun of it. You panic, and stupid things happen. And you have your friends running around you also doing stupid things, and suddenly everyone’s on fire. What’s not to love? I found this game completely charming and a great couch co-op for multiple players at a time. In a gaming climate where couch co-op is a seldom-seen word, I have to give this game major props for bringing groups together while still keeping the gameplay unique.
