Free Gaming Online - The Best Free Gaming Online Opportunities

games game money flash

Online gaming is big business, but not all gaming online has to cost you money. In fact, there is an amazing amount of high-quality, free gaming online. How does that work? How does a company offer free gaming and stay in business. Well, sometimes organizations use free gaming online simply as a way to generate an audience for their advertisements. Other times, they use it as a way to get you in the door. The allure here is that the free player gets a large chunk of the game free and the paid player gets a more massive community with which to enjoy the game. Let’s pursue this further by examining some of the best free gaming online.

1. Independent Flash-based Games

Many software developers get their feet wet by developing a Flash game. This brings some top-notch development power to the table. This in combination with a Flash engine that has come a long way since its inception, results in some surprisingly sophisticated gaming. In fact, many of these games are so good that there are entire websites, such as Addicting Flash Games, dedicated to them. Flash has even give rise to its own genre called Tower Defense, an example of which you can see at Marvel.

2. (Mostly) Free Gaming Communities

Another free opportunity is the gaming zone, such as the MSN Zone. MSN Zone offers a great selection of Flash games, but they also offer a full range of traditional games. This is a great place to play Backgammon, Bridge, Checkers, Chess, Hearts, etc., with real people. The aspect that distinguishes a community from a collection of games is the ability to create an identity, and then build online friendships that will persist from one gaming session to the next. This is really one of the most attractive aspects of online gaming.

3. Online Casinos (using “funny” money)

A great place to experience that type of community in a more adult setting is at many of the online casinos. An online casino, you say. Doesn’t that cost money? Sure, if you want it to, but most of the high-profile online casinos, such as Golden Palace, allow you to play all of the casino games free. They do this to build a crowd, and in the hopes that they may get you to bet some really money eventually. If you prefer poker, there are of course, many websites dedicated to free poker play, one of the largest being Poker Stars.

4. Dungeons & Dragons Online: Eberron Unlimited

The great news for hardcore gamers is that free gaming online is no longer limited to the lightweight games. The struggling MMORPG D&D Online recently transitioned to free-to-play in order to reenergize its dwindling fan base. It worked so well that several MMORPGs quickly followed suit. Is there a catch? Well, they let you play without limitation through Level 20, and then if you wish to level beyond that point, you have to become a paying customer. However, that’s not much of a catch when you consider how much gaming occurs between Level 1 and 20. That’s many hours, and even if you decide not to pay, you still have your character and access to the community and all of the friends that you have made.

5. Need for Speed World

Perhaps RPGs aren’t your thing. In that case, you may want to race the streets of Need for Speed World, a completely free MMO racing game. Well, what’s the catch here? There really isn’t one. You get almost complete access to the game free. There is a Starter Pack for $20 that gives you an additional car and some other perks, and there may be more to come. However, you will never require them. That means you have unlimited access to state-of-the-art video game racing for years to come. It’s almost too good to be true, and since NFS: World just opened its doors, it’s a great time to establish yourself in the community.

Well, there you have it, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Before you decide sink big money into an online gaming experience, try free gaming online. If later, you decide to pay, at least you will know that the game is worth your investment of time and money.

Excellent post, I agree with you 100%! I’m always scouring the Internet for new information and learning whatever I can, and in doing so I sometimes leave comments on blogs. I don’t do it for SEO purposes necessarily, but to learn new things.
