Weekly Poll: <br />Do you play browser-based games?

Browser-based games certainly don’t rival console or computer games, either in capabilities or the number of people playing them, but they’re certainly growing in popularity. Facebook has likely had a big role in the uptake of browser-based games thanks to several immensely popular titles that have even made their way onto mobile platforms like the iPhone and iPad.

OnLive.com was initially described as being browser-based gaming, though now the mention of “browser” seems to have disappeared. However, it’s still a revolutionary new way to play online games though a browser-like interface. It’s one service that could keep me from ever buying another console or regular desktop game again, once it develops enough of course.

I’m interested in finding out how many of our readers frequently play browser-based games, only occasionally, or maybe not at all. If you do play browser-based games such as the ones on Facebook, through OnLive or even ones we’ve previously mentioned before, let us know in the comments. Thanks!

  • I voted for ‘No, I never play them because they’re terrible.’, because I haven’t found a game that’s fun to play. The concept of browser based games is pretty good because it doesn’t restrict you to a platform, nothing to download, just sign in and play the game with a lot of other players around the world.

  • What about : “No because I have no time, I only use my computer for work”
    This is my case!
