Online games based in flash are not much and the game play is short.

Stranded is still one of my favorites in the genre... ~ Stranded - das 3D Adventure Game ~

Not really an 'online' game, but it plays like one.

Roblox is fun as well.

Just Roblox, no Lego involved. I play it with younger boys and have always been impressed by the level of flexibility the game allows. My kids can create stuff there you couldn't even approach in any other game. That's what I really like about it. It's more about creating than just playing.

I did once buy me some RP in LoL, but that was only cause i won some paysafecard promo and i was really into Lol back then. But generally i do not really invest in a free online game.
I get bored really quick so it would be a loss of money. No, give me a game which i can buy, own and don´t have to cough up money the whole time to advance faster.

Would you guys be willing to PAY for online games or do you just look for free versions?

I think that would depend on the game.

Take GW2. Purchase of the game allows you to play it online free. It has an in game action house which can make you money in game to spend within the game. You can also purchase in game money with Real World money. This in turn supports the developers in providing more content in game as well.

This also goes for Console gaming. PLaying say Red Dead Redemption I expanded my online gaming experience by buying the additional content. Some games have expansions. Weapon packs, armor and etc.

If it is a good title and I am enjoying the gaming experience then I would be willing to support it financially.

@Ancient_One what about something like World of Tanks ?
Where a premium Membership for example can give you certain advantages that you would otherwise not get?

Thanks
I don't think Flash media games really count as being called an online game.
I personally think they are boring and repetitive. However there is always someone looking for a time waster game and I guess these type of games would fill that void.

As far as paying for these games you are competing against IOS and Android based games and at best most of them are questionable. However if you do hit a winner like candy crush you will get rich very quickly.

Good luck.
