FHM's Web Game Awards 2009

Web games have been an immensely popular part of FHM.com for over five years now. Several months ago, we decided to launch a campaign to find the most revered timewaster out there, as voted for by you. Admittedly, our timing wasn’t great. The economy is crashing down around us, jobs hang by tender threads and here we are celebrating the best ways to avoid engagement with your livelihood. But that’s beside the point.

Late last year, an enterprising young man managed to port the original id Software classic Doom into an fully-blown flash version playable on your desktop. And since that happened, Flash Doom has romped to victory, eclipsing nearly 400 others in the Web Arcade to become your game of choice. While it’s not a made-for-web original, it is a labour of love and fully deserving of its accolade.

Click through the collection to read about and play the runners-up. And below, you’ll find three games that we feel deserve honourable mentions.

 

FHM’s Picks

Flight of the Hamsters: An all-time FHM.com favourite; the basic premise is to see how far you can throw a hamster. But it's not sinister at all, just a bit odd. And wicked fun.

Robokill: In our opinion, desperately unlucky not to feature in the final standings. It’s slick, looks great and doesn’t mess about. Just plough right in and start shooting anything that moves.

Portal: Use your hi-tech gun to create portals and progress through levels. Sounds easy, but quickly gets tougher than an over-grilled sirloin. With rubber peppercorns. Yeah, that tough.
