Knightmare Tower (Game Battle)
Any of you old timers remember Game Battle? No, OK, well, don't worry about it. All you need to know is that this is a super-fucking-fun launch-style game! It's Friday, and Friday is for goofing off at work and playing Flash games, so you don't even need to feel bad about it. Post a screenshot if you beat the game!
Mega Miner (Game Battle)
Mine for gems, metals, and minerals. Upgrade your miner. Don't overheat or run out of fuel. This is a perfectly appropriate way for you to kill the last couple of hours of your Friday at work - and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. (Note: This game is vastly better than Tanner's stupid game. Posting games like that is one of the reasons that we fired him in the first place.)
Budget Hero: (Educational) Game Battle
If you ever wanted to control where your tax dollars go, this is your chance. The folks over at NPR affiliate American Public Media created this game to let ordinary Americans balance (or attempt to balance) the budget. Want to bring the troops home immediately, increase clean energy research and add a public healthcare option? See what happens. Want to make the Bush-era tax cuts permanent, repeal Obamacare and eliminate federal education spending? Just try it and see what happens to the debt in 20 years. (Via)
