MS Paint Adventures is a webcomic made by the great Andrew Hussie. I think I'll leave it to Andrew himself to explain it:
HEY!

Welcome to MSPA!

If you'd like to jump right into reading something, I think Problem Sleuth is a good place to start, personally. But it's a pretty long read, so be sure to have the save game feature handy!

But before you jump into an adventure, a little background on the site would probably help. There are two key points to understand! They are:

1) MSPA stories exist in the format of "mock games", specifically text-based adventure games. You advance through the pages of the story by clicking links which sound like commands you would type in a text prompt to get a character to do something. Generally, the character will respond to that command on the following page.

2) MSPA stories are largely "reader-driven", in the sense that most of the text commands were supplied by readers through a suggestion box. I would select a command from the list, and then illustrate the result of the command.

When I say "largely reader driven", I mean this approach has undergone a lot of evolution from adventure to adventure, and continues to even now. I'll try to give a sense of what the process was for each adventure.
Problem Sleuth is currently my favourite, its gets the best blends of comedy, action, and mystery.The events end up being mind-confusingly awesome. Due to the input by readers and Andrew himself.

Homestuck is a close second, besides the wait for them to get made, it gets very engrossing.
