The Web is a gamer's paradise. Kongregate is our current favorite for its fabulous arcade of free Flash games (most of which tend toward the testosterone-laden shooter and action genres). Games on Kongregate feature better animation and graphics than the simple HTML-based games you'll find on sites like Addicting Games. All 5,000 or so of Kongregate's titles are submitted by independent developers and get rated by other gamers. If you're feeling friendly, you can chat with people online as you play. Other cool Flash-game sites include Armor Games, Nonoba and OneMoreLevel.
