MSN Games (also known as Zone.com - formerly known as The Village , Internet Gaming Zone , MSN Gaming Zone , and MSN Games by Zone.com ) is a casual gaming web site, with single player and multiplayer online games, as well as PC download games. Games are available in free on-line versions, trial versions, and full feature pay-to-play versions.

MSN Games is a part of Microsoft Studios , a sister of the MSN portal, and is owned by Microsoft , headquartered in Redmond, Washington.

The first version of the site, which was then called "The Village", was founded by Kevin Binkley, Ted Griggs, and Hoon Im. In 1996, Steve Murch , a then-employee of Microsoft, convinced Bill Gates to acquire the small online game site, then owned by Electric Gravity. The site was rebranded to "Internet Gaming Zone" and launched in 1996.
