GameTap Web Player

What is GameTap Web Player?

The GameTap Web Player is a browser plugin that was a direct successor of the GameTap Player, a desktop application that could be downloaded freely and installed on a Windows computer that allows subscribers to the GameTap service access to its catalog of games. In 2009 the application was discontinued and all its functions were instead made into a web player, a browser addon that had the same purpose and fulfilled the same role and functions. Originally created by the Turner Broadcasting System (TBS), it was later sold by Metaboli and although the service continued the service continued downhill from there. At launch in 2005, GameTap boasted about 300 games, and the catalog has grown to about a thousand after a few years of operation.

GameTap offers three levels of subscription: the Free subscription model, where players can access free games from the GameTap catalog; the Classic subscription package, having access to older console games running in PC emulation; and finally the Premium or Gold subscription bundle that enables access to all the games in the GameTap catalog. GameTap however has been criticized, notably by the Better Business Bureau of Metro Atlanta, for its service and inability to be uninstalled easily.
