Tom's Guide: 13 Awesome Games That Have Gone Free

By - Source: Tom's Guide US | B 6 comments

Check out Tom's Guide's latest story on free games!

They say the best things in life are free. Whether or not you agree with that statement is entirely up to you. However, you can't argue that free stuff is awesome. Especially when that stuff is games. Great games, even. The Tom's Guide team has put together a list of awesome games that used to cost you, but are now completely free. Check out '13 Awesome Games That Have Gone Free' for the full list!

 

While there are numerous big-budget AAA gaming titles out there vying for the discerning gamer's time and money, there are also numerous classic games that can be played for free. Whether it's older titles that have been cut loose by their owners (or released as freeware as a promotion for newer games), landmark games that have been released to the wild by benevolent publishers, or titles transitioned to a new monetization model, have a look at some of these once commercial games that have since gone free-to-play.

    Reposted from the link...Now I can save you another click to get there...LOL
    To stop this utter bs people, just copy the data from the pics and JDownloaderV2 will catch them all...No need to read it I just check the names.
    IE this article shows:
    wolfenstein 3d
    KQ3 (kings quest?)
    Ultima 4
    Ultima Savage Empires
    Titans of steel
    Ultima Martian Dreams
    Marathon
    Sarien
    The Ur Quan Masters
    TF2
    C&C Tiberian Sun
    Quest For Glory 2
    OpenRA (open source red alert I guess).
    If Toms refuses to kill these dumb slideshows and "Read more" articles, just go around their BS. Get JDownloader and quit giving these A$$hats hits :)  Sorry Tomshardware, you're site is annoying the crap out of me. I don't mind clicking a 10page article, but this picture and read more crap has to go. Scratch that, I guess now it's "SEE MORE". Same freaking thing.
    People need to start listing things so nobody has to read this crap. I hope I've saved a ton of people from this clickfest :)

    Hey Jane, next time why don't you actually list the games in the same article rather than just redirecting to the Tomsguide link...

    Yes redirection is total BS. Why is this site acting like MS. Must I really click over and over to get what I want. Same with those damned picture articles I NEVER read once realizing that's what they are. I won't click 30 times through crap+read more crap. Put the ENTIRE page in one page rather than the "read more" garbage. I see read more and move along. Between that and all the comments section problems lately this site is becoming a real PITA to try to read.

    Here's another game that was always free. Best of all, it's more than 10x better than any of the games listed in this article. You can download it here: https://www.pathofexile.com/

    Unfortunately, once TF2 became free, it was no longer awesome.
    I still play it, but I wish there were "proof of purchase only" servers, to weed out the free2play kiddies.
