    OK, I don't think this has been done before on the temp and I personally often find myself at times when I have nothing to do and yet not the time to 'get into' a 'proper' game. In times like these browser based flash games are very convenient time-killers.
    So I have decided to make a list of the best browser-based flash games on the web, voted for by you; the loyal members of GBAtemp.

    Rules
    • Must be playable in a browser with no downloads other than the standard flash, java etc.
    • Please also state the genre of your suggested game
    • If the game has already been suggested then no genre is required (please check first)
    • Only post games you have played not, for example, one you've 'heard is supposed to be good'
    • Only +1 a game once. I can't guarantee to keep on top of what everyone has posted, be honest
    • Don't list every game you've ever played, only good ones
    • No mmorpg, games that take 6 hours to complete, game that require you to sign up etc.
    • Use full title, no abbreviations
    • The suggested game must be free to play (demos are allowed so long as they are long enough)
    Post in this format:
    A game already suggested: +1 Game
    A newly suggested game: Game [genre] --notice there's no +1--

    ummm.... what would the genres for them be? puzzle/time-killer perhaps?

    Nvm, I think I got it.

    We're gonna need some more suggestions for this to work.

    I've had it for more than a year and a half, and I still haven't beaten it. It's my favorite flash game, and quite honestly the only one I really find worth playing. I wish they would release the soundtrack. [​IMG] My favorite Act is number 11.

    EDIT: The funny thing is that I first heard of the game on this forum.

    OK, I'm back. Updated.

    Remember to +1 a game if it's already there, this makes it easier for me to manage.
    And unfortunately Sausage Head, as much as I'd love to, I can't put Minecraft on there as it is not playable in your internet browser. (Well... you can... illegally).

    I'm gonna add another rule which I forgot to put in at first:
    • The suggested game must be free to play (demos are allowed so long as they are long enough)

    And the rule
    • Must be playable with no downloads other than the standard flash, java etc.

    Keep 'em coming guys!

    Minecraft is fully playable in a browser. (If you paid for it, that is)
    On minecraft.net, you can choose 'play in browser' and 'download'

    I would suggest a thread name change to '[Essentials] Browser Games'.

    @Chhotu uttam I'm afraid I can't put them in due to them not being playable in a browser (unless you can find an online version and prove me wrong).

    And, yes Soul Snatcher, you're right.
    Although, just "Browser games" sounds like it can include MMORPG, or Travian etc.

    Can I also reiterate:

    Use genres
    If your game has already been posted just +1 it. If it's a new game to the list please add a genre and keep it separate to games you have +1'd.

    Thanks.

    +25 Transformice needs to be stickied as an essential game. It's extremely addicting [​IMG]

    If you wanna count my vote as 1, go right ahead, but IMO it's awesome for timewasting [​IMG]

    Just my 2 cents..

    Do you think it's necessary to have links to the games? Maybe just games in categories above +5?

    Also, if I do, what website should I link to? I think to the website of the company who sponsors / owns the game.

    can't speak for the masses but i for one would preffer if the game would be linked already ... doesn't matter on what page as long as the game itself is playable XD

    shouldn't be to hard to search for them if interested but its still easyer to just open several taps on the best games if this list will actually grow bigger.
