Four Online Games That Never Seem to Go Out of Fashion

Playing games online has transformed from being the archetypal geek hobby into something that literally everyone is doing, and it has happened with astonishing speed. To a large extent, it is the smartphone revolution that we have to thank. After all, around 85 percent of adults own a smartphone and games are the most popular category of app by far, accounting for more downloads that the second and third most popular categories put together.  

You might also think that this rapid evolution means that the games we love to play today are forgotten tomorrow. That’s true to an extent, and there is certainly an unquenchable thirst for new games, which is keeping the developers busy. But just as there are classic movies or albums there are some evergreen games that people never seem to tire of playing. Here are four perfect examples.  

Words With Friends 

Zynga are the kings when it comes to social gaming. Their Farmville game was briefly on top of the world and got all the headlines, but in the same year, 2009, they also released Words With Friends. The Scrabble-based game got an update in 2017, but has remained conceptually unchanged, and it’s as popular today as ever, attracting players of all ages. The simple interface and the chat facility make it a great way to keep in contact with friends and loved ones, especially in these difficult times. 


Everything we’ve said about evolution and innovation can be doubled in the world of casino slots. There are thousands out there, and new ones appear every week. Yet many casino gamers prefer to stick with the games they know. Whenever you look for the best online slots, Starburst is consistently in the list. The NetEnt classic has been around since 2012, but this traditional fruit machine-style game is a perfect example of a classic concept that never grows old.  

League of Legends 

It’s not all down to the mobile revolution, though.  It was always inevitable that with more people getting into gaming, eSport’s profile would also escalate. But few would have guessed just how much. There are now around half a billion eSport fans on the planet. New games are being introduced to eSport all the time, and titles like Fortnite have a solid following. Yet the most popular eSport game is one that has been around for 14 years. Sure, that’s partially due to the infrastructure in terms of teams and tournaments being well established. But it’s also because League of Legends is a game that was groundbreaking when new and is still as rewarding today as any of the alternatives. 


Finally, it would be remiss of us not to mention the most popular game on the planet. Yet it is one that many in the western world might never have heard of. This tactical first-person shooter was introduced in 2007 and is the first game ever to attract more than a billion registered players, most of whom are in China and South Korea. With a movie adaptation on the horizon, Crossfire’s popularity is only going to keep on rising.
