    "So many games nowadays rely on flashy graphics and animation rather than well thought out or executed plots. Not so with A Dark Room. Yes, there are no graphics and it is all text based but it will really challenge your mind to question what is going on and to engage with the game with your brainpower. It is very intriguing once you get into it and will make you appreciate all the hard work that goes into the plotting and choices given."

    "Experimental Shooter is one of the best web games out there. Even more so if you are into web games for whatever reason that might be. It doesn't really get any better than this for a flash-based gaming experience. There are 21 levels and each one has different gameplay such as a different ruleset and goals needed to finish each level."

    "This game is alright, but definitely not one of the best web games out there. I enjoy the actual play mechanics--everything feels good and responds well. But the scoring system, which is the point of the game, is totally confusing. In other words, the "frog" part of this game is fun, but the "fractions" part is convoluted and confusing. Just let me have fun, not go back to math class."

    "Line Rider is an ingenious flash game which you need to draw lines and watch a sledder ride down your creation. Rather interesting and addicting overall and needs very little in the way of resources. Worth the look!"

    "This is really cute, and can be an unfortunate time sink, as I found out yesterday. It's a very simple Flash-based tower game on a desktop. No, it's a picture of a real desktop, not an OS desktop. The sfx enhance the cute factor, and it's a fun, little distraction that I could see becoming very addictive."

    "Fun little game to play when you are bored. You have to a move circle around a board to eat as much food and grow as you go. But watch out because other players that are bigger than you will attack and eat you and then it is game over. "

    "8 Ball Pool is a free app from the Google play store. It is the number 1 android pool game. It has over 100 million installs to date. It contains some ads and offers some in app purchases, but as good as the gameplay is, it makes the ads worth it. I would say this a very easy pic for the topic of best web games."
