Online Casino

Perhaps slightly left-field, but nowadays online casinos are a fantastic way to game in the online world. Traditional casino is transformed to offer a new dimension to online gaming. Many sites offer themed games based around blockbuster movies, TV shows and superheroes. At 32Red for example you’ll find Jurassic Park and I’m a Celebrity slots, while SkyVegas offers South Park and Gladiator games.

Although you’ll find that the traditional games such as 32Red roulette are the same in theory, they can also differ drastically. At 32Red for example you can play French roulette, European roulette and mutli-player roulette all in one place with many sites also offering welcome bonuses or free play so, like video games, you don’t have to put down any cash to play. However, unlike video games, there’s also the potential to win real money if you’re feeling lucky!

Jumpers for Goalposts 5

If you are from within Britain and received a school education in the past eight years, chances are that you would have played some version of Jumpers for Goalposts. The current edition is the most ambitious yet, with new gaming advances and features making it more reminiscent of a console game than a Mousebreaker staple.

For those unfamiliar, Jumpers for Goalposts is a soccer game. You start out as a 16-year-old, kicking the ball against a wall, honing your skills before signing with a club on the lowest rung of the football ladder. Now you are tasked with improving as a player and moving up the leagues, going out with your friends and dating girls all the while.

Jumpers for Goalposts is everything that Be A Pro mode on FIFA should be, while its addictive nature will keep you hooked for a good month. Winning the World Cup is the goal that every player has throughout the game.

PlanetSide 2

PlanetSide 2 is considered the crème de la crème of online internet gaming, while it also holds the Guinness World Record for largest first-person battle after recording a 1,158 player battle a few years back.

The graphics are good, the gameplay is commendable, and the sheer mass of other players ensures that competitiveness is maintained.
Honestly, this is the Destiny of online gaming.

League of Legends

Quite frankly, when a game can attract 40,000 hungry spectators to an arena you know you are onto a winner.

The game is probably easier to play than it was to make it to that final. Simply pick your champion and head into battle. League of Legends’ automated matchmaking, extensive range of playable characters and superb maps have made it one of the best multiplayer games on the web. It is one that all gamers should look to play.

So many people find the game exhilarating to watch because of its aggressive nature. To master it you need to be able to work well within a team and come up with some calculated tactics, otherwise some will end you.

The game cannot be mastered quickly, it takes time to develop enough skill to play the game to a winning ability. However, you’ll be having fun from the word go.

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft

Most readers should be familiar with the ridiculously popular Magic the Gathering card game. Some of you may remember it from a certain South Park episode. Anyway, Hearthstone is Blizzard’s free-to-play online alternative.

While it may not be as good as Magic the Gathering, it is still pretty awesome. For a fantasy card game, it isn’t too complex thanks to its simplistic rules. This means that getting to grips with the game doesn’t require too much. The clean and crisp visuals also benefit the overall gaming experience.
