If you’re a fan of online gaming, you already know that it’s not always easy to find cheap games that can capture and hold your attention. Drop the price point down to free, and it gets even harder to find truly good options — but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. If you haven’t checked out any of the Friv online gaming hubs yet, now is the time. The platforms host a giant collection of frivolous — yep, that’s the reason for the name "Friv" — games that are completely free and easy to play, yet vastly entertaining.

With no sign up necessary, playing cool games online has never been so easy. The home screen has columns of small tiles with colorful graphics and game names. Be aware that all Friv Flash games use Adobe Flash, and you must have the Adobe Flash Player installed to play these games. Other than that one restriction, the games are extremely click-and-play friendly, and it's easy to lose track of time and spend hours sampling the options for both kids and adults. The list of games is long, so here’s a few of the best titles to help you get started on hours of fun.
