54 IO Games! Ultimate IO Game List

In the recent years a new category of massive multiplayer games that usually can be directly played in your browser became popular. The so called "IO Games". This List brings them all together!

What are IO Games?

Why yet another IO Game List?

I know i am not the first who is creating such a site, but there are only 2 that are relevant. One seeming to be a little to ambitious the other (way more popular) beeing sketchy at best (calling everyone else out as beeing sketchy which is a asozial move IMO)

With this list i want to provide a simple interface for people to post, vote and comment IO games in a nice environment. As simple as possible :) I hope you like our idea, and if so make sure to share our site with your friends and social networks.
