List Criteria: Any genre is allowed, as long as the game has some kind of online functionality with a big community.

For many of us, there is no greater joy than putting on our headset, meeting in a lobby with friends, and gaming for hours on end. In an age where the internet is everything, we decided to rank the best games to play online, and we want you to help us. What is your favorite game to play online? This list pits first person shooters against MMORPGS, and survival titles against strategy games. The only real commonality between these titles is that playing online is crucial to the gaming experience, so vote for whatever games you enjoy on the internet the most.

Playing online is becoming such a standard in gaming that some games actually cannot be played offline. Take Hearthstone for example, or the upcoming Dungeon Defenders 2. Is making games online exclusive some kind of smoke and mirror to push microtransactions on us? It's certainly part of the business model for many of these games, but the real intention seems to be delivering the greatest gaming experience to the consumer.

Vote up your favorite online games, and even add some titles to the list if you feel they deserve to be here.
