Default Best. Game. Ever.

Don't know if you guys are info Flash/Shockwave games, but this game that I am about to introduce to you is one of THE best I've ever come across

Table Tennis!

The best I've done is

Ti Hee (11-2, 11-1)
Ben Scot (11-7, 11-7)
Forrest Gump (11-7, 11-7)

but it took me nearly 5 hours (not continuously, of course) to get that good.

Link to some software needed to run this (if you don't have it already, you should) Shockwave

While it pains me to have to pass the torch on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, I just don't have a good punchline.

Good game.


Here's a flash game from Newgrounds that's incredibly addictive. What the Matrix game should've been.

Well, after playing approximately 8 gajillion sets, I have won 0 with a best score of 7-11 against Ti Hee.

The physics engine rules, though.

This is old, I've been playing it at least 2 years, back when it was a beta .. and I'd linked to it too. But yeah, it is awesome.

That game kicks copious amounts of ass. Thanks for the link. It's jsut too bad the viewing window is so small - my mouse kept going outside of it, screwing up my aim and causing me to die horribly.

I have the same problem with my mouse going outside the screen. I haven't been able to play for any longer than a minute or so without getting killed for that reason. Is there anyway to maximize the window?

I think the downloadable version fixes that, though I haven't tried yet. Same with the dying quickly thanks to mousage. :/
