12 Video Games To Play

Download Planetside 2
Planetside 2 is an epic, all-out battle so ridiculously impressive, you'll give yourself a quick pinch every time you remember it's completely free. There are in-game purchases of course, but you can still dive into gaming's biggest ever battlefield and be useful using just default gear.

There's simply nothing like taking part in a massed assault on an enemy base and coming out on top, or living in a world where an enemy convey could appear on the horizon at any second. If you need any proof that 'free' doesn't mean making compromises any more, Planetside 2 will provide it.

2. Dota 2

Download Dota 2
Technically Dota 2 is in closed beta, but there are so many codes flying around the net that it may as well be open at this point. Even if it takes a quick request on a forum though, Dota 2 is a phenomenon you should at least play to experience, and now is a good time.

A brief tutorial now points out the ropes, with Steam Community stepping in to provide guides to the original MOBA/whatever-you-want-to-call-this-genre-if-not-MOBA.
Don't expect a warm welcome or easy learning curve from this surprisingly complex game, but bring a few friends and you have a good chance of being hooked on one of the biggest crazes in PC history.

3. Hawken

Download Hawken
Jump behind the controls of your own mech and fight it out in a gloriously realised future world with Hawken. They're the 'agile' kind of mech rather than the slow lumbering tanks of MechWarrior Online, so purists should head there instead, but still a change of pace from blitzing around in soldier uniforms with automatic rifles.


Expect to pay to upgrade your starter mech if you enjoy the action, but you can jump in and get the flavour of the thing without paying a single penny.

4. Super House Of Dead Ninjas

Download Super House Of Dead Ninjas
One of the most enjoyable Flash games in recent memory, which is also available as an expanded commercial-but-cheap release on Steam if you fancy more toys and full-screen action.
The free version of Super House Of Dead Ninjas always feels like a complete game in its own right though though, as you guide the Crimson Ninja from the top of a demon-infested tower to the horror waiting at ground floor.

Randomly generated adventures keep things fresh, with the speed of the action more a challenge than any individual enemy. You can handle any situation in front of you. You just don't get to stop to catch your breath. Ever. Until you die, of course.

5. Star Wars: The Old Republic

Download Star Wars: The Old Republic
Almost but not quite breaking the land-speed record from subscription to free-to-play MMO, but EA's loss is your gain.Star Wars: The Old Republic has some irritating restrictions that may chafe after a while, but you can play all eight of its class stories from start to finish and dive into the online content for free.

Star Wars The Old Republic

It's worth the download simply to experience the Star Wars universe from different perspectives, like the hyper-professional Imperial Agent and Bounty Hunter. If you want to go with the dull option and just have a generic Jedi Knight though, that's fine too.

6. Super Crate Box

Download Super Crate Box
Dullest name in the world? Possibly! Super Crate Boxmakes up for it, though, with a simple mechanic that's far more fun than it has any right to be. How long can you last against a stream of incoming monsters? It probably depends whether you're fighting them off with a pistol or a rocket launcher.

Super Crate Box

The catch is that you don't score points for killing, but collecting crates - and every crate gives you a different weapon. And not killing the monsters only makes them crosser. It might not sound like much, but its speed and difficulty will keep you hooked from the off.

7. World Of Tanks

Download World Of Tanks
World of Tanks is a different kind of MMO - the clue being in the title. Team based, massively multiplayer action with a huge range of war machines to drive into battle awaits, with new players able to join the action immediately.

An upgrade system adds a sense of personalisation, while being surrounded by a whole army constantly reminds you that loners don't do well on the battlefield.

8. Smite

Download Smite
Gods from around the world get together to battle it out in a Dota/MOBA inspired clash of divine vengeance in Smite.


The camera is behind the characters this time, making for a more direct connection to the action than simply guiding your lord around with a mouse, but the premise will be either familiar if you've played its inspirations or a way to get the feel for the style if you haven't. Gods include Zeus, Thor, Kali, Artemis and... Cupid? Well, at least he has his own bow...

9. Ultima: Worlds Of Adventure

Download Ultima: Worlds Of Adventure
Two blasts from the pasts that suffer from an outdated interface, but are still worth checking out for being RPGs that dared explore new settings. Savage Empire is an adventure into pulp fiction of the Doc Savage style, with the Avatar of Ultima fame being pulled into a lost world.

Ultima Worlds Of Adventure

Martian Dreams imagines a world where the Victorian era's greatest minds accidentally get shot to the Red Planet and discover more than canals waiting to greet them. If these give you a taste for the Ultima experience, the rest of the games are also on the site for not much money.

10. Black Mesa

Download Black Mesa
Remember a little game called Half-Life? It was quite popular. Black Mesa Source is the long-awaited rebuild of it in Valve's Source engine, and a must-play for any fan of the series.
It's not simply a pixel-for-pixel recreation, but a re-imagining of it - adding detail so seamlessly that you'll forget how primitive the original was, as well as a few extra elements of its own, like female Black Mesa scientists.

Only the final chapter, Xen, remains unfinished, due to needing more work to make that part of the original actually'good. There's no ETA yet, but we can't wait.

11. Runescape

Download Runescape
Runescape is one of the biggest free-to-play MMOs out there, and now would be a good time to take a look. The long awaited sequel is due in Summer, so you'll be able to fully appreciate the improvements to narrative, graphics, and and general world design.


It's certainly not the shiniest MMO in the world in its current form, but hanging onto this many players shows it's doing something right. It also has the advantage of being playable in a browser, and thus playable anywhere you have Java. Not to be confused with "Run! Escape!", which is what you should do if chased by an angry velociraptor.

12. Barkley Shut Up And Jam Gaiden

Download Barkley Shut Up And Jam Gaiden
Retro RPG madness meets absolutely all of the drugs in this crazy adventure. Here are just a few details. Barkley Shut Up And Jam Gaiden is set in post-cyberpocalyptic Neo New York.
You're basketball player Charles Barkley, retired from the game after killing an audience with an epic power dunk. Now, the world is in double-peril as a second Chaos Dunk nukes much of New York. Then it gets weird.

Barkley Shut Up And Jam Gaiden

There's a sequel coming thanks to Kickstarter. It asked for $35,000. It got $120,335. There are reasons why people want that sequel. You should get ready for it.
