Whether you want to play Flash game from the likes of BigSamo, or you’re searching for some kind of free MMORPG, or a subscription-based MMO game, there are lots to choose from. Let us help you pick your next gaming addiction with this list.

Here are the top 5 online games to play in 2015.

  1. World of Warcraft

This is perhaps the most successful online MMORPG ever created. Launched in 2004 by Blizzard Gaming, it’s only gone from strength to strength. It’s waned to about six million active subscribers after hitting a peak of 12 million a few years ago, but it still dwarfs any online game.

For US gamers, it costs around $15.00 a month, although the price fluctuates semi-regularly.

  1. League of Legends

League of Legends was launched in 2009 and quickly gathered a huge subscriber base. Its use of team-based elements in the relatively new MOBA genre has made this a hit. There are no signs of it stopping soon.

We like it because, unlike World of Warcraft, it’s easy to jump right in and play if you only have a few minutes every day.

  1. Counter Strike

Counter Strike is the oldest game in this list. Established in 1999, this was originally a modification of the first Half-Life game. It’s a highly competitive player base, so much so that even today thousands of players login daily to raise their ranks and attempt to become the top players in the world.

If you love first-person online shooters, this is certainly the game for you!

  1. Runescape

If you don’t want to pay for your games and want to stay browser-based, Runescape is easily the game of choice. It’s over a decade old now and has recently undergone a complete graphical revamp. It’s a grinding game at heart, but that hasn’t stopped it from maintaining a strong player base.

It also has special servers for subscribers who want to pay for additional content, but this isn’t necessary to enjoy hundreds of hours of fun in Runescape.

  1. Online Candy Crush (and the variations of)

Candy Crush is seen mainly as a mobile game, but this isn’t always the case. Many online gaming sites, such as BigSamo, have featured online versions of the Candy Crush game, as well as a number of its variations. This addictive little game involves matching fruits of the same colour together to create combos.

It sounds simple, but it’s claimed thousands of hours from daily schedules all over the world. The best part is it doesn’t require a gaming laptop to play to its fullest.

There you have it. You have five different online games you can play in 2015. Some of them involve interacting with other players and some don’t. Some games you can jump right in, whereas others require at least a few hours to really enjoy yourself. Start playing today!
