If you are like me then you love computer games. They take you to a fun filled place far from whatever the reality of your life might currently be. You can race cars, battle off zombies, create a whole world…. you can do anything imaginable. There is only one thing I do not like about computer games, the price. That is why I am extremely excited that there are now so many computer games that are offered for free to play online.One of the great things about free online games, besides the fact that they are free, is the variety. If you can make a game out of it then someone has thought of it and made it. There are literally thousands of games out there, free to play games, in hundreds of different categories. Since they are free, then if you don’t like the game you are playing, then you can always switch to a different one. Before you know it you will be deeply involved in a game that you really enjoy.Free online games have also evolved quite a bit in recent years and many are offering new features that are hard to pass up. For example, many now sport multiplayer options, allowing you to play and interact with people from across the globe. Then, to kick up the competition and challenge, many games have also added leaderboards showing the top scores that give you more motivation to get better and play harder. There truly is nothing like having your name on the top of a leaderboard for a game that thousands of people play. There are even some very great and in depth free online games available for download that rival and in my opinion beat out a majority of the retail PC games out on the market. So if you haven’t tried online free computer games or haven’t played any in a few years then now is a perfect time to look at what’s available and get to playing one today.
