This is part 3 of a 4 part post regarding the February 2011 issue of Maximum PC which touts 101 websites you need to see before you die.  In this article, I will continue to post my opinion regarding another 25 websites.

  1. http://hatsproductions.com/organtrail.html – No.  I would only recommend this site if you have time to kill, because this website page is basically a video game using graphics and technology based on 1970’s technology.
  2. http://machinarium.net/demo – Yes.  Even if you aren’t a computer game aficionado, you’ll at least appreciate the artwork and interesting puzzles here.
  3. http://www.playauditorium.com – Yes.  Great eye and ear candy for a different angle on puzzle games.
  4. http://www.informationisbeautiful.net/ – Yes.  This is a site which promotes data visualization, especially ones that look beautiful.
  5. http://tokyoplastic.com/dm.html – Yes.  Awesome animation and sound!
  6. http://experiments.instrum3nt.com/markmahoney/ball/# – Yes (just once though).  This is another Chrome experiment.  It illustrates how multiple browser windows can inter operate through the use of a bouncing ball.
  7. http://www.chromeexperiments.com – Yes.  You’ll need WebGL capable display card to view these visual array of artwork.
  8. http://www.kokogiak.com– Yes.  This guys has some interesting projects.  I won’t mention what they are.  Just go and check it out.
  9. http://seaquence.org  – Yes.  This is an interesting way of composing and presenting music.
  10. http://failblog.org – Yes.  This is one of the most well known sites (especially on YouTube).  It is very entertaining because it is so much like America’s Funniest Videos.
  11. http://www.informationisbeautiful.net/play/snake-oil-supplements – Yes.  This ought to help you decide which vitamins to get at Costco.  The visual data representation and the ability to filter on areas of concern make it easy to determine which one really is snake-oil.
  12. http://www.verbatim.jp/senshuken/ – Yes.  Very addicting game!!! Be careful.
  13. http://virtual-bubblewrap.com – No.  Not quite as good as the real thing.
  14. http://www.youtube.com/trivialpursuit – No.  Unfortunately I don’t speak Spanish.  So, this site is a definite NO.
  15. http://www.kongregate.com/games/pastelgames/the-trader-of-stories – Yes.  This is like reading an interactive comic book.  The game is an adventure.  There is no real time graphics, but between the sound and the awesome artwork, it makes for an entertaining play.
  16. http://www.yourethemannowdog.com/ – No.  Useless.
  17. http://www.willitblend.com/ – Yes.  This is an interesting way to promote an awesome blender.  I could use a blender like that.
  18. http://www.icanhascheezburger.com – Maybe.  If you like cats and burgers, just maybe you’ll love this site.
  19. http://amzn.to/7whhld – No.  This link appears to be dead.
  20. http://armorgames.com/play/4309/this-is-the-only-level – Yes.  You’ll be entertained by the game at this site for a little bit, but you’ll soon realize there is only one level in this game.
  21. http://periodictable.com/ – Yes.  I wish they had this when I was taking chemistry during college.  It sure would have given me a better sense of what all these elements were.
  22. http://firstpersontetris.com/ – No.  This is just a tetris game where rotating the falling block isn’t what you do.  Instead, you rotate everything else to make the block or shape land the way it needs to be.  It makes you feel like you are in space doing tetris in zero gravity.  This is very disorienting.
  23. http://www.kongregate.com/games/icylime/multitask – No.  This is a waste of time.  If you like to torture yourself with useless multitasking activities, go for it.  At the end of the day, it changes nothing, except maybe that you may think how uncoordinated you might be.
  24. http://www.conveythis.com/translation.php – No.  This site is a translation site.  You don’t need this.  Google has its own translation function.
  25. http://www.amiblind.com/ – No.  Totally useless.
Please check out the last posting on this subject matter.  It is the last 25 websites.
