Well, I don't know in the past week or 2 everytime, I play an online game it starts lagging, dota ping would go from 200-1000+, CS:go would go over 100. But, it didn't happen before until the past few weeks.. Is there something wrong with the servers? or

Could be on the game server side. I've noticed Battlefield 4 has had higher pings since the last patch a couple weeks ago. You could also try a hard reset on your router/modem/switch.

Have you changed you ISP lately? If that is the case then you are suffering from bad routing my friend. The path you ISP is choosing might be having heavy rush hubs. Download Kill Ping 
It will jump from all those heavy nodes and connects you to game server directly. Will solve you issue.

I would suggest using extreme caution with services like this.  I can't possibly see how they can work, and you are downloading a program to your computer that is supposed to "route" your traffic in a different way.  I would be concerned that you traffic will be intercepted and possibly used for other purposes.

I too am wondering if it could be on the game server side where the issue is occurring. It would be nice if you had pings to a test site like the MTS web site or something non-game related. You could then more quickly determine if it was game specific or a bigger network issue.

Try download pingplotter and you can ping to any ip address that will respond to ping requests. It will also show at what router hop the ping starts to go higher.
