A few days ago I started having an issue where if I was playing an online game, about every 5 seconds it would freeze for about 10 seconds and then when it unfroze, the ping would shoot up then come down right after. This happens nonstop, basically making online games unplayable. All my other games that aren't online work completely fine. I don"t know if I should maybe get a new wifi adapter, but I've only had mine for 6 months and don't even know if that's the issue. My internet has worked completely fine before this for games and also works for everything else other than games, so i am really confused as to what could be wrong.

The games aren't on a browser they're downloaded from a launcher and then I play them through that. They're not browser games.
Then right click the game u can see the option " run with graphies processor" and select the" high performance nvidia processor" i think its can help you

It may be caused by system file corruption. In this first, run System File Checker and view if any system files missing or corrupted. If there are, the sfc /scannow command (System File Checker) will repair them. Run Command Prompt as administrator.
Tried this and it says everything is fine. I've now noticed that it does this all the time, not only playing games, but only on my computer. I bought a new network adapter and that did not solve the problem.

You can change the graphics settings of the game, sometimes lowering the quality of graphics resolves the game freezing issue.

If you are running on WIFI then there are chances that your signal might be dropping the in-between game, and these games require a constant internet connection for smooth gameplay. Maybe you didn't notice it before because it doesn't affect much during browsing and youtube, but high ping is generally due to unstable connection. Check with your internet provider and try to play with an ethernet cable directly.
