Casual gaming is very big these days, and my current favorite is Bloxorz. But if that’s not to your taste, here are some links/games that you might prefer:
- In case you never played Asteroids, here’s a game that kind of reminds me of that old game: Vector Wars. My twitch/response isn’t so good, so I don’t usually go for this kind of thing, but it is well done.
- Chronotron. Wow. If you’ve ever wished you could slow down (or go back in) time, this game is for you. Have your "present" self do stuff, and then have your time-traveling self take advantage of the results.
- Want to boost your IQ just by playing a game? Yeah, me too until I realized I didn’t really understand how to play. But maybe you’ll do better! IQ boost with dual n-back task explains it all, along with links to the science as well as the game itself.
Finally, here is a list of 26 "make the world a better place" games, that might not be so appealing to youngsters (or oldsters) looking for a diversion. Nevertheless, you might want to try them out anyway: 26 Learning Games to Change the World.
