BBG, or Browser Based Games, commonly known as flash games, web games, or online games, have proven to be a huge trend in internet searches since the dawn of the world wide web. Norton (known for their anti-virus software) released a list of most commonly searched terms, and searches for flash games dominated, with 3 related terms in the top 20. While the web game industry is still a relatively unknown and under-researched market sector, it has quickly become dominant, broadly surpassing console gaming. I mean the XBOX360, PS3, and Wii aren’t even in the top 100 search terms! At Game Wasteland alone, the median time spent on the site per day is 30 minutes! Why are they so popular? Well, for one thing they are generally free. They are also convenient and discrete: Your mom/boss/girlfriend/wife will probably take notice if you are jumping up and down with your Wii remote in the living room. But play on your computer screen and quick loading flash games are easy to hide and you look like you’re doing something legitimate. Long story short, thanks and keep playing!

That explains a lot of the popularity of GameWasteland.com. Come play with us!
