Hey! What are you doing?!
Shouldn’t you be– eh. Who am I kidding?
There’s probably (definitely) something more productive you could be doing right now. Instead, you’re here, reading this.
It’s not good to enable your friend’s addictions… but I’m just saying, if you really want to make the most of your procrastination, I know a guy.
In fact, I know five guys (not the burger place).
Read on for five of the most addictive, time killing games you’ll ever play. Just remember, you didn’t meet me here. I know nothing. We’ve never met before.
That’s right. The OG/pioneer of the first person shooter genre is still available to snatch the trophy of Kill Your Time, 2018.
Originally released in 1993, Doom may have single-handedly invented the first-person shooter game style. While other new games at the time were fighting for attention in retail stores, Doom skipped the lines with shareware and mail order distribution. Within two years, more than 15-20 million people were wasting their time by wasting demons left and right.
Flash Player revitalizes DooM as a free browser game, and you can find it here. You’ll be assuming the role of an unnamed Space Marine turned Satan-slayer, with a variety of firearms to choose from. You refused to follow your commander’s orders to fire on civilians, so now you’re stuck with security duty on the most boring planet ever.
Or is it boring? “Something fraggin’ evil” this way comes.
Plants vs Zombies
If you’re tired of the usual tower defense games, give Plants vs Zombies a try. Or two. Or three. Or 1,239,098.
This adorably creepy free browser game and iPhone app is one of the most popular downloads in the iTunes store. Chances are you’ve already heard of it or tried playing it yourself. Just thought we’d tempt you again with one of the best games to kill time and bring PvZ back from the dead.
It’s a beautiful sunny day, and hoards of business-formal Zombies are on their way to destroy your house and murder you. You know, a typical Tuesday. Help your garden full of anthropomorphized vegetables hold them off by collecting sunshine and spitting pea-cannons. How many levels can you pass?
Alright, have fun. Let us know how it goes. See you in ten years.
A Dark Room/A Firelit Room :
Now, this one is a little different from the rest.
There are no animations or key commands in this game. In fact, the only thing you’ll ever see while playing A Dark Room is text. But the urge to keep reading and make your own decisions makes this minimalist story game hard to quit.
A Dark Room jumped on several Best of the Year lists in Forbes, Paste, and Giant Bomb after it became available for iPhone in 2013. If you want to play the free browser game version (with no Flash Player necessary), check out A Firelit Room here.
You start in a cold, dark room with nothing but firewood. You keep stoking the fire, and more people join you. Something feels off, though… Why are there scraps of clothing in the animal traps? Why are we suddenly calling each other slaves?
To find out, you’ll just have to keep clicking. Prepared to be spooked by one or more of the endings.
Let’s lighten the mood, shall we?
You’ve played Bubble Shooter, you’ve played Candy Crush, now what?
For a connect three game with a clever twist, try Cube Crash. Yes, you do still need to connect three of the same color cubes to remove them from the board. Just don’t be too hasty, or you may be left with an impossible scrap of cubes that have no sets of three. All the time spent on that level will have been for nothing.
You can play Cube Crash and other free browser games here. In this game, you have to plan ahead. So put on some good music, and strategize while you connect pieces and rack up points. See how high you can get your score without screwing yourself over by the end of the level.
Looking for a chance to kill time and earn cash?
This ain’t your mama’s bingo. Online bingo sites make it easier than ever to learn to play bingo, earn free playing bonuses, and make some friends. True, bingo is almost entirely luck. That’s why it’s one of the oldest and most addicting time killing games out there.
You really can’t make any epic mistakes in luck games like bingo. However, because money is involved, you’ll need to make sure you’re willing to lose whatever money you come in with. You may also find it hard to access bingo sites at work or other places with strict internet firewalls.
While bingo is regulated like gambling, it’s legal in all 50 states. Always make sure you’re playing bingo games on reputable websites that have permission to host. Be conscious of your in-app purchases, and know your limits.
Who knows? You may actually make some extra cash on the side while wasting the day away.
More Time Killing Games and Content
That’s all I’ve got for ya.
If you’re feeling heroic and creepy, you can shoot demons on mars in Doom or split peas at Zombies. You might even make to the end of the nightmarish storytelling of A Dark Room.
When you want some time killing games that won’t give you nightmares, you’ve always got Cube Crash and good split’ fashioned Bingo.
Still not enough? If you enjoyed this post, check even more killer content on our blog.
We can’t wait to waste more of your time.
