The best free online multiplayer websites and web games

We bring you a small collection with the best websites and online web games with free multiplayer so you can have a quick game with other people on the net. Web games have been with us for years, and little by little they are evolving to become more and more serious entertainment and not so far from the experience of mobile games or even for PC in some cases.

So much so that, although everyone on the list is played from their website, there are some that also have mobile or computer versions to download if you want. Some of the ones we mentioned are going to require you to sign up in order to play, but we also have others that you can check out as a guest.
