Play Games Online

Most of these sites are portals that house a collection of games -- from action games to dress-up games. Many of these sites have titles for a wide age range (meaning that some might be too violent for younger players), and others rely heavily on ads. Before setting your kids free on these sites, make sure they know which games fit within your family's limits.
