We've all got little internet games we like to play. Many of them are hilariously stupid and yet, at the same time, far more addicting than they should be. So... yeah. Post them here, along with a short description of what they are.

Dolphin Cup/Olympics 2 -- You're a dolphin. Who jumps. Yeaah. >> You're supposed to jump out of the water and do a bunch of tricks. It's really fun. There's also Dolphin Olympics, which was the first version. Dolphin Cup has made the graphics prettier.
Dolphin Cup/Olympics 2 <-- A better link.

Seed -- Create the ultimate flower! ... No, really. That's it. You crossbreed a bunch of different flowers to make new ones. It's much more fun than it sounds. I enjoy leaving it on Auto and letting it run in the background and then checking on it in an hour or so.
Seed <-- Link without the ads, on dA. Found by Caeli! Thank her for it. :3

For both of these games, you have to scroll down past some ads. Just ignore them.

Oh, my. Fancy Pants is definitely my vice.

You play a little man with fancy pants who runs around and goes through doors and does flips and just. It's a bit like Mario as far as how you run around to complete levels. So addicting!

Just about everything that Ninjakiwi puts out, but this one in particular:

The object is to not save the princess.

Such a simple little game, but I've spent over an hour playing it before. I like to play it for like 5 minutes in the morning to help my brain wake  up. *has been late to school because she had too much fun playing it and lost track of time*  ::)

If you don't mind including free games that have to be downloaded:

The concept is simple:  move the ball to open up matching symbols.  Only thing is, there are a few hundred different ways to do this, ranging from the incredibly simple to the mind-bogglingly complex.

Aww, those are so pretty! Those are far prettier than any of the flowers I've managed to make. They look like little gems.

That was after I'd let it sit for almost four hours, when I went out. xD

I like these ones better. :-)



You can play Seed with no ads on deviantart, on the artist's page. :-)

I think I needed to pass the level 100 to defeat the last round. But damn, it was a great feeling.
Lost my PC, and the save though :/

My friends have been going nuts about League of Legends.

Me, I want to wait until I get Windows 7 and reformat my computer before I start playing. >.>

I lost many an hour to this ludicrous thing back before I reformatted. To the point where I needed to make a macro for mouse clicking lest I turn my mouse hand into a claw.

Prince of Persia: The Fallen King.

The game isn't all that good.  It's a cheap tie-in game for the Nintendo DS that gets progressively buggier the farther you get into the game, the special powers for the final level are only about half-finished, and the graphics are seriously lacking in polish.

And yet, the gameplay is genuinely fun, the plot's not bad at all, and I've played through the game three times and am about to start on a fourth. >>; From 1 to 10, I wouldn't rate it higher than a 7, but it's about as fun as a 9.

And then there's this little jewel, which is a bit like Bejeweled, but without a time limit...

Does anyone remember the webgame I totally don't remember the name of?!

It was black & white game where you played a white and a black figure.
The black figure could stand on black boxes, black bars and so on, while the white figure could walk on everything in white.

You could switch between the two figures (the screen would turn upside down) and they had to help each other from their respective worlds to get through the level.

It only had a limited amount of levels, but I loved it!
