The greatest internet sports games of all time according to The Guardian.

My current best on Little Master Cricket: 84 (that's the final strike-rate adjusted total).

Oh good, Hattrick made it. The one site on the web that's wasted more of my time than metafilter...

Woah. Dennis Lillee is mentioned. I remember talking about Dennis Lillee to a young tyke who was a cricket fan - and this is going back 8 years - and he's all: "who?"


Oh, and awesome link, nthdegx, thanks. I remember how much fun I had on the clunky Nintendo cricket from 16 years ago.

Ahh, QWOP. He's got the heart of a champion, if not the limbs.

As a USian playing Little Master, I can only conclude that cricket has the same rules as wiffle ball.

Pfffft, Nanaca Crash is totally a sport.

My Hattrick team (Manitoba Reds!) keeps dominating the series, getting promoted, subsequently losing every game, and getting relegated back down to the series it dominated. It's a vicious cycle, and I think it's hard on the lads.

No Netrek Hockey on this list, no peace.

Ye gods, delfin. Do people still play Netrek Hockey? You just activated some memories I didn't know I still had.

I don't get the Guardian URL. Why does it say May 27, 2008 if the article is from May 10, 2010?

My day is so completely shot.

Free-kick Fusion is indeed addictive. The goalie gets damn hard (for me) at level 7/pro. 6163 was my best.

I did get both an albatross (-3) and condor (-4, which was also a hole-in-one) on Cat with Bow Golf.

Maybe I'm picking the wrong games. King of the Road and Crash Test Dummy Olympics are like the worst...
