The 100 Best Free PC Games: Page 8 of 11

 

Star Trek Online

 

Who wouldn’t want to take control of a starship, explore the fringes of the galaxy, battle dangerous aliens and train an elite crew of pangalactic professionals? This is your chance to show the internet that you’d make a much better Picard than Picard. Or, at least, than they do.

 

Gunbound

Don’t for a moment assume that the cartoonish graphics mean that you’re in for an easy ride here. Gunbound is a vicious Worms-a-like where you’re given a tank and placed on a team of what are pretty much sitting ducks. It’s your team’s job to take out the other team by hurling shells into the air and doing your best to drive out of the line of fire. It’s simple and it’s merciless.

Alchemy

A puzzle game of tile placement, all you need to do in Alchemy is place runes next to other runes of either the same colour or the same design until you’ve covered the whole board. It’s easy when there aren’t many runes laid out and almost impossible as the board becomes cluttered. Make a line, from one end to the other, and those spaces will clear, but discard too many unusable runes and it’s game over. This is an alarmingly addictive puzzle game.

Bejeweled 2

Rearrange different-coloured jewels to make a row of three and they’ll disappear, scoring you points, before more jewels fall into place. Line up more than three jewels or cause cascade arrangements and you’ll score even more. Do this against the clock or do it slowly, to your heart’s content. However you do it, you’ll find it almost impossible to stop.

Hide

An extremely disturbing first-person stealth game that has you running from nameless authorities, Hide both looks and sounds extremely creepy. It starts you off in a dead forest on a cold winter’s night and immediately you’re hunted by strange figures and some sort of craft with a searchlight. It may be a relatively short game, but you can’t deny it’s atmospheric as hell.

Wonderputt

This is the silliest crazy golf game around, but also one of the most spectacularly pretty. Wonderputt gives you one big, ever evolving level to play crazy golf across, punctuating your putts with spectacular and imaginative changes to the scenery around you. This is the ultimate lunch break flash game.

Sushi Cat

Peggle for pescetarians, this game has you dropping a giant elastic cat from the top of the screen, hoping to bounce it into as many pieces of sushi as you can on the way down. It’s as simple as that, yet it’s enormously good fun watching your cat careen from ledge to ledge.

DoomRL

Here, the classic FPS Doom is reimagined as a roguelike in the style of Nethack, becoming a turn-based, top-down game that’s all about ASCII characters and ammunition management. It translates surprisingly well and if you’re a fan of roguelikes you should start playing right now.

Puzzle Bobble

Rarely is a game’s concept so simple, but its execution so flawless. All you need to do here is fire coloured bubbles into a collection of many more coloured bubbles that floats above you. Once you get three or more bubbles of the same colour touching, they fall away, taking with them any other bubbles that are attached. But more bubbles are constantly advancing towards you, so you need to keep firing as accurately and as quickly as you can. It’s horribly moreish.

The Button Affair

Free, but more than worth the £1 charity donation the author requests, The Button Affair is a left to right autorunner in which you, an Archer-styled gentleman thief, must steal the priceless Button Jewel from a Bond-grade business tycoon by ducking under laser tripwires and leaping over gunmen. Short, well-written, classy and surprising, it also looks as sharp as its protagonist dresses.

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.
