Spending — or should I say, wasting — time on the internet can be a very simple thing to do. Most of us get to a point when we just want to relax and take our mind off work for a few minutes. When that moment arrives, there are a limited number of things one can do. For me, the moment I am in a similar situation, I would just open my browser and start playing online HTML5/Flash-based games. This is a pleasant way to just take your mind off work and release stress without getting yourself involved in the game for hours and weeks.

Even if you open Miniclip or any similar site, you will be shown hundreds of games and your break may come to an end by the time you find a good game.

Now, though, the best online games aren’t just games that require Flash or full application downloads to run; they’re games designed 100% in native web code. Here’s 15 of the best HTML5 games that pulled me in, and kept me playing far longer than I thought they could.
