Friv operates pretty much on a system of “one in one out”, so when a new game is added it simply replaces the least popular one in the existing selection. There are no sacred cows.
You can choose from hundreds of different random Friv flash games including car games, football games, puzzle games, dress up games, casual games, collecting games, 8 ball pool games, girls games, detective games and classics like Didi, Birds, Super Mario and Dragonball Z as well as a couple of madly addictive chasing games.
Play Friv Games, there are games to suit kids and adults.
Similar, but not to be confused with Y8 Games Covers old Friv.com games, Friv Games 2010 and Friv Games 2011. And Friv Y8 is not correct...it is a bit like saying "Microsoft Apple". I mention it because a lot of people search for "Friv Y8" on our site :-)

Friv Games takes a novel approach to presenting it's games to you. The home page of the website is filled entirely with the 250 or so free online games that are on offer.
This is good if you don't like having ads thrust in your face, but it does make it a little bit harder to find the game you are after (unless you memorise its' thumbnail image). Floating over the image does make the name appear in the big yellow "thing" seen below, so all is not lost :-)

That aside, the games are good...largely because when a new free online game gets added it causes the least popular game to be dropped. This means that, over the years, the game selection "evolves" in a Darwinian fashion and only the fittest (best) games survive! All good as it stops you having to trawl through bad games to find a good one!
I randomly clicked on "Octopost" - a highly amusing and well presented game where one has to fling an octopus as far as possible, collecting power ups etc in the air/water. The octopus is upgradeable with aero dynamic and propulsion upgrades etc. All good clean fun!
