The 100 Best Free PC Games

Free PC games! Whether you're broke or just frugal, free is a price point that appeals to everybody's purse. We've collated the 100 best free PC games guaranteed to deliver a near endless stream of complementary entertainment. All you need to spend here is your time.

Team Fortress 2

This is the big daddy of multiplayer shooters and it’s nuts that a game so good should be free. Pick your class, from sniper to medic, select your team and step onto the madness that is its cartoon battlefield. Link

Planetside 2

Battle has never been so big. Imagine entire continents at war, with tanks, trucks and fighter craft alongside hordes of infantry. Throw that into the far future and you’ve got Planetside 2, a never-ending conflict on an incredible scale that’s pretty damn good looking to boot. There is nothing else quite like this out there. Link

Rift

Rift was a phenomenal subscription based fantasy MMO - World of Warcraft in new trousers, essentially. It made its name by updating and improving itself at a ferocious pace: with new raids, new zones, new world events appearing on a monthly basis. Now, it's entirely free-to-play: you can play it without spending a penny. It's a brilliant option: you can sink hours into it. Highly recommended. Link

Battlefield 1942

This was the game that the entire Battlefield series: a World War 2 first-person FPS that demonstrated tanks and planes and submarines and everything in between belonged in our deathmatch arenas. It may look dated now, but it’s still a fine example of World War 2 shootery, so take another tour of duty. Link

 

America’s Army 3

This is the latest version of the modern day military shooter that also serves as a recruitment tool for the US Army. Don’t fancy being shipped to Iraq any time soon? No problem, you can still lock and load, taking on the enemies of the free world wherever they might be, teaming up with other troopers the world over. Link

Hawken

It plays like a twitch first-person shooter, but Hawken sits you in the cockpits of giant robots that you can upgrade, customise and own. It’s also phenomenally pretty: a real showcase of what the PC can do. Link

Mechwarrior Online

Pledge your loyalty to a great house or sign up for a mercenary company in this mech simulation. Whether you’re piloting a light or heavy mech, you’ll have to manage your weaponry and keep an eye on your system temperature. In the Mechwarrior universe, piloting a giant robot can be a technical and rather nuanced occupation. There is also stomping. Link.

Tribes: Ascend

Tribes is probably the fastest FPS in the world. It’s set across huge levels of open valleys and leafy forests: you zip through them by skiing down mountains and jetting up hillsides. Just be aware that success comes from both ultra-fast reactions and clever teamwork. Link

Warface

Warface is a fast action military shooter: but less concerned with realism than it’s po-faced peers. Warfare wants you to do two things: co-operate with your team in fast urban deathmatches. And slide along on your arse while firing a machine gun. Link

Black Mesa

It took nearly a decade, but it’s a now a real thing: Black Mesa is what happens when a mod team decides to recreate the original Half-Life in the Half-Life 2 engine. The result was a faithful and quite brilliant representation with a few new flourishes and without any of that Xen nonsense at the end. Link

A lot of great games in this list though the lack of flash games and cookie clicker is a bit disappointing :P

I only looked at the first page so far, but I'm gonna go out on a limb and assume 99 of these 100 games are shooters of some kind, yes? God, I hope I'm wrong...

This list is great if you're a media stereotype gamer that only enjoys shooters and maybe a few generic mmo's.
