Yahoo Games | Free Online Games

Yahoo Games was a section of the Yahoo! website, launched on March 31, 1998, in which Yahoo! users could play games either with other users or by themselves. The majority of Yahoo Games was closed down on March 31, 2014 and the balance was closed on February 9, 2016. Yahoo! announced that “changes in supporting technologies and increased security requirements for

Yahoo Games

our own Yahoo! web pages, made it impossible to keep the games running safely and securely”. It was then announced by Yahoo! that its Games section would be dissolved completely on May 13, 2016. Get more info on Yahoo Games through the below sections of this www.hoodamaths.org webpage.

Yahoo Games – Free Online Games

The games on the web site were typically Java applets or quick Flash games, although some titles required a local download. Many of the games that required a download contained TryMedia Adware. Yahoo Games also included Yahoo! Video Games, which provides news, previews, and reviews of currently available or upcoming First Party games–and Yahoo! Games on Demand–which provided free demos and full-size downloads of full PC games for a charge.

Yahoo Games

The site featured an “All Star” system for users, in which a user could pay to get an All Star username. All Star users were able to get extra privileges on Yahoo! Games sites such as disabling pop-up ads. All Star users did not have playable games without downloading.

Yahoo Games

 

Yahoo Games was built on Yahoo!’s acquisition of ClassicGames.com (created by Internet entrepreneur Joel Comm and programmer Eron Jokipii) in 1997. The last used Yahoo! Video Games section of the site was formerly known as Games Domain, from back when Yahoo! acquired the web site in 2003. As of May 14, 2016, Yahoo Games held over 1,400 games, most of which were developed externally.
