Currently, online games are extremely popular.
From the PlayStation 5 to PC, there are lots of different platforms that you can use to access online games – it’s all a matter of personal preference.
Of course, most people don’t want to spend tons of money to play online games. After all, it’s unnecessary to drop $80 on a popular franchise game when there are so many cheaper alternatives out there.
It’s because of this reason why there’s such a high-demand for budget-friendly online games. Typically, budget games are free-to-play or under the $20 price tag, meaning the average person can get them.
So, if you’re a gamer who’s looking for some more budget-friendly options, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s run through a quick list of the best budget games available right now.

1. Casino Games
Let’s start with a super fun option: casino games.
Over the past couple of years, people have ditched land-based casinos due to the fact that they charge expensive entry fees. Instead, they’ve started to use online casinos.
Online casinos are perfect for people with budgets, as you can play games such as slots and poker with very small amounts of money. To get started, try a casino for real money. All you need is a smartphone or PC with a working internet connection – simple.
Next up, the legendary Fortnite.
Fortnite has been around since 2017 and is now one of the most downloaded games of all time. Why? Because it’s free!
In simple terms, you and 90 other players drop into a huge, expansive map that looks like a tropical island. From there, you collect weapons and materials for building. The last player standing is the winner.
Plus, there are trio and squad modes that you can play on Fortnite if you want a more sociable experience with your online friends.
3. Call of Duty: Warzone
If you’re a fan of the Call of Duty franchise, then you’ll love Warzone.
Warzone – just like Fortnite – is a battle royale game. The major difference is that it’s first-person and a more mature type of shooting game.
Warzone 2 is also expected to release soon, which is something to also keep your eyes out for. However, it’s recommended that you play the original Warzone first to get your experience levels up.
PUBG is another free-to-play online game that is centered around survival. Up to 100 players fight against each other in a multiplayer deathmatch designed to find out who the toughest (and smartest) player is.
The PUBG map is incredibly realistic, which is why so many people love this game. Its name is Erangel, which is a fictional island in the black sea where a military squad is controlling it.
If you play Fortnite and discover that you want something grittier instead, PUBG is the game for you.
5. Old School RuneScape
Lastly, there’s Old School RuneScape.
For any guy or girl born in the 1990s, this is a major #ThrowBack game that’s perfect for some nostalgia.
Old School RuneScape is the exact same as it was in 2007, only this time some slightly new features have been added (however, you likely won’t even notice them).
Of course, you can still make an account for free. And if you can remember your old account details, even better!
