Everybody loves a cute little mouse, but there's not a lot of love for rats out there. That's why the rodent lovers of Silvergames.com have put together this great collection of Rat Games. Play games with the bigger, less popular versions of mice, who have been unjustly blamed for the plague.
Rats are rodents with a long tail and tend to live near or around humans. They are considered opportunistic survivors, quickly adapting to changing circumstances. In many cultures rats are synonymous for a lack of loyalty, of low moral standards and highly selfish behaviour. It is a common insult among many groups, especially those with a criminal bent, ironically enough. Rats are also often used in scientific experiments, where their behaviour and instincts are studied when exposed to specific stimuli or circumstances. Rats are also referenced in the idiom "rat race" which refers to doing something repetitively, with little hope for success or for an imagined reward that may not be worth the effort.
But if you just enjoy those long-tailed, four legged pets with a fondness for cheese and gnawing at things, give these rat games a try. They are after all free, and can be played without downloads or registration. Have fun!
