250 Best Free Online PC Games In One Place

Introduction

Many free online PC games are available at various sites on the internet, but most of them are usually full of advertisements and might not be the best. If you're looking for a page full of online PC games that are best and free with least advertisements, or games that are allowed to play full-screen, then check this out.

Discussion

FrivFriv is my top recommendation. Upon visiting the site, you'll be greeted with a full-screen of tiny screen shots for more than 250 free online PC games! All kinds of popular games and they are of various genres.

Friv operates on a system of 'one in one out'—whenever a new game is added, it replaces the least popular one in the existing selection, so you will have the most popular ones in hand from time to time, just in one place.

All games are online, you do not need to install any game software onto your PC. All you need is a PC with high speed internet connection, pick a tiny screen shot and play a game. It's simple and intuitive.

Netpotion GamezNetpotion Gamez is a good alternative game site with minimum advertisements. It features 36 tiny screen shots in each page from a library of more than 800 free online games. A click on each tiny screen shot brings you to the game selected.

Top 10 hottest games and top 10 highest rated games are highlighted at Netpotion, which also categories the games into various genres such as action, adventure, board game, driving, fighting, puzzles, shooting, sports, etc. A search box is available for you to check if a particular game is included in the library.

Some best games featured at Friv or Netpotion are also available to some other websites, such as Game Pear or GameTop, which have a choice of playing the games full-screen.

Some of the good games that I have played at Friv and liked the most are listed here. The full-screen games that I have tried and consider as my favorite are listed here. You might want to zoom in and give it a try.

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME THE NAME OF THIS GAME??? It has a robot made of grey blocks. It is a game with two parts. In one of the parts there is an orange girl robot with a crazy red mother who disapproves of her daughter's blue boyfriend. in one part you find video tapes and once you have found all you put them in order to reveal a story. you solve mini puzzles to pout together an entire mystery. This game was on friv in the spring but is no longer there. PLEASE! WHAT IS THIS GAME?????

Has anyone else had problems with www.friv.com? When you click on a game, it tries to load from a.gamedoss.com but cannot. I have tried loading on mozilla and IE8. My grandson loves to play friv games but I cannot get it to load. I have been trying for over a week now.

by Jojo Yee on 16. September 2010 - 2:45  (57904)

It loads nicely for me on Firefox and IE8. You might want to check if you have any addon to block the frame from loading and if your browsers work with Flash. Try also this site http://a.gamedoss.com/ if it works.

by MidnightCowboy on 15. September 2010 - 20:27  (57889)

Just tried three games at random using SRWareIron browser and they all loaded fine. Currently I don't have Firefox installed and only the Beta of IE9 so can't make a comparison with your own programs.

by Jojo Yee on 25. January 2010 - 4:22  (41996)

You might want to check out the Games and Diversions section. Some games, such as the ones recommended in Best Free Computer Chess, allow you to play online with human beings.

Above are good game websites but I prefer http://www.dmcgames.co.nz - It loads faster and has over 1300 games.

I think "Global Rescue" has been replaced by another in Friv. Can't find it.

by Jojo Yee on 3. November 2009 - 4:03  (35672)

Thanks for the feedback. This game is still available from other website. Check it out at "Favored Full-Screen Games" section in which I've added the game.

Netpotion.com is a good one. I think it's pretty new too.

There must be 1,000 games on this site. Some are great, some aren't so great, but a good time can definately be had.

One of the most addicting games is at http://www.netpotion.com/?p=70

Many of the games are available on other sites, but I like this one. It's fast and it isn't weighted down with a ton of ads. Just one ad at the beginning of whatever game you are going to play and that's it!

by Jojo Yee on 15. July 2009 - 7:51  (25123)

There're more than 800 games in a presentable layout. I'll check through some of the highest rated ones. Appreciated your input.
