Hey Beau, two suggestions:

1) Keep up with telling us which browsers work/don't work well with each game.

2) I know you are focusing on quality games, which is good, but every once in awhile, put out a top 10-25 list every few months. Also, along those lines, I'd like to see a top 10-25 list of games to AVOID or "Games of Shame". :)

Will do. iPhone/Android gaming will also figure heavily into this column, so I plan on testing it out on those devices as well. If a game can run in a certain browser of Flash (or something similar like that) it can run on some of the mobile devices, but still I want to make sure that they actually look good without having to zoom in every 3 seconds.

@shockologist Hmm, how do you like it? What sort of browser does it run, or does it use an app style for content?

This game has the lasting power of close to a week. It is a tad more polished and there is more to do than most city building flash games but the fact is it is still a city building flash game.

Lvl 9 Tower Complete in 4 days...so boring, so not fun at all.

Beau, Thank you for doing this. I am very interested in this column. MoW is something I have looked at but not played. I'm a fan of the genre so I will surely give it a swing. I just picked up Medival Total War and Rome Total War on Steam for $2.50 each. Great deal if you have the rig to run them. I wonder if a service like Steam can benefit from these browsers games? At first glance, I would say possibly. Seems like this is a growing field in gaming. Curious how the developers feel about it. I read recently where some of them cursed mobile gaming. I look at it this way there is a niche for almost anything. The iPhone will most likely never be a PSP and that is OK. Browser based games will most likely never be WOW killers and that is OK too. Anyway .... Good luck and see you on Twitter.

Thanks for this article, started playing and I can't stop. Just the sort of low system requirements kind of game I was looking for to satisfy those gaming urges when I'm between traditional MMO play sessions.

Started playing MoW as well and have to say it's pretty deep system for a browser game, nice.

Also, not sure if there is an audience for this, but, I'm playing a couple sports based browser F2P MMO's. One called Trophy Manager, a soccer game (football to most of the world), and Goal Line Blitz, an American Football game.

These games generally dont take much time to play, as little as a few minutes a day, and no 3D game play, simple graphics or text-based.

Pretty fun, if you like sports. It would be nice to see more sport theme MMOs though, for the sake of variety.
