Here’s an ever-growing collection of links to some of the best free games I’ve found on this big ole internet of ours.
Path of Exile – An awesome Action RPG that’s very similar to Diablo II & III and better in some ways. It includes six characters, tons of loot and the largest skill tree I’ve ever seen. That’s an amazing amount of content for a free game.
Everquest – One of the first MMORPG’s is now free-to-play. It ain’t pretty but it’s free.
Planetside 2 – Tired of fighting dragons, elves and trolls? How about massive, sci-fi battles with tanks, jets and big ass, robotic armor?
Star Wars: The Old Republic – If you like Star Wars, RPG’s and Free, this is the game for you.
Team Fortress 2 – It’s Free Now! Download it, shut up and play it. One of my favorite all time games.
Gang Garrison – An amazing Demake of Team Fortress 2. It’s a multiplayer platformer with all the classes from Team Fortress. All for free.
Dungeons & Dragons Online – It’s Dungeons and Dragons and it’s free. Do you need to know more?
Vindictus – A Free Online MultiPlayer RPG with 4 characters to choose from and some stellar graphics.
Bit of War – An 8-bit Demake of the God of War game.
Wasteland – The Grandfather of Post-Apocalyptic RPG games is now abandon-ware. You’re gonna need DosBox to play this thing.
Elder Scrolls: Arena – The first of the Elder Scrolls games. That’s right, before Skyrim, Oblivion, Morrowind, Battlespire, Redguard or Daggerfall, there was Arena. You may need DosBox to play this.
