See also

The next generation consoles have hit the market and the reviewers are already gushing over the graphics and the potential for what these machines could accomplish. Optimistic gamers are fighting to play the latest titles. There are a small group of gamers who aren’t as thrilled, though.

Because consoles are boring, these best flash games of 2013 will keep you occupied for hours, or days.

Bejeweled

This totally addicting flash game was initially created by PopCap Games as a web-based Flash game called Diamond Mine, inspired by the gameplay of Shariki. It was reportedly successful for PopCap—a company formed in 2000. PopCap created partnerships with established Internet gaming sites such as Microsoft Zone to host Bejeweled as well.

The objective of this game is to swap one gem with an adjacent gem to form a horizontal or vertical chain of three or more gems. Bonus points are given when chains of more than three identical gems are formed and when two chains are formed in one swap.

Caribbean stud poker

Caribbean Stud poker is a casino table game with rules similar to five-card stud poker. However, unlike standard poker games, Caribbean stud is played against the house rather than against other players. There is no bluffing or other deception. Caribbean Stud Poker is an addicting, yet totally fun, flash-based online game that millions are flocking to because the odds are much better that one's efforts will emerge victoriously.

As a result of the popularity of poker, casinos created a house banked game known as Caribbean Stud Poker in order to lure poker fans to play more table games. The birth of the game is not well referenced, which is unusual for a relatively new game. Gambling genius David Sklansky has laid claim to formulating the game on a well-known poker forum, positing that he invented the game in 1982.

Bingo

You remember learning to play bingo as a child. Your teacher probably used it as a helpful tactic to study vocabulary or for to prepare for an upcoming test. The anticipation was thrilling. You were one point away from the win and another child across the room yelled: “BINGO.” Or maybe you were the bingo wiz kid, always the one shouting it out first and frustrating your classmates.

Now, as an adult, you want to get back into the game. You can learn to love bingo all over again with many online bingo sites, such as Bingo Flash.

Mobile flash games in 2014

We are hardly into 2014 and already Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt has said that 'Mobile has won.' Eric Schmidt does not necessarily mean mobile phone devices but smartphone and tablet devices. 75 percent of mobile owners are expected to own a Smartphone in 2014 and with more afforable devices on the market such as the Moto G and Iphone 5C this number will only increase.

Mobile flash games will more than likely take over our spare time in 2014, but the games above won our hearts in 2013. Try them all, and be responsible while playing.
