20 Best Browser Games You Need to Try in 2022 (2023)

It’s all fun and games until someone, well, takes away the fun and games. Yes, even the best browser games can be a time-suck sometimes.

By playing games you can artificially speed up your learning curve to develop the right kind of thought processes —
Nate Silver, American statistician and writer

And this one:

Games give you a chance to excel, and if you’re playing in good company you don’t even mind if you lose because you had the enjoyment of the company during the course of the game —
Gary Gygax, American game designer and author

Pretty compelling quotes. So spending time playing games can’t beallbad, right?
