Free Steam Games

Recommended Posts

All of us here own at least one Stronghold game I'm sure. A lot of us would have a Steam copy of the game, but I'm sure you all have interests in other games. Surprisingly a lot of games on Steam that are free are great. In this topic, I'll post any good free games I'd recommend, to save you having to look through. I'll be updating it every so often :)

 

 

Here's what I have already

 

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Phantoms

This is a third person shooter, multiplayer only, co-operative and competitive game. The main gamemode is Team Deathmatch but after a certain rank, the next gamemode is unlocked. There are a few maps, not as many as you'd maybe want but I feel every map is good. There are a variety of guns and 3 different classes, each with their own abilities and skills. The game uses common Tom Clancy physics, taking cover, bullet drop, different playing angles, allowing you to swap the camera side when moving corner to corner.

 

A lot of complaints have been made that the game is "pay to win." Admittedly, there are quite a few things you can buy, but you aren't separated. It's not as if you can't use any assault rifle, you just have less variety. Plus, from my experience, most of the people that have paid the full price aren't that good :P

 

The game was released in 2014, yet the graphics don't show that. The game isn't really demanding meaning a huge majority will be able to play the game with at least 60FPS.

 

Personal rating - 7/10

 

 

Neverwinter

Neverwinter is a MMORPG. It is a PC version of the game Dungeons and Dragons and follows the same sort of playstyle as World of Warcraft. Varieties of different races are available, each with different classes and abilities. Some races are DLC which you need to pay for but they aren't overpowered so to say. You can have just as much fun using the free version, except for the level cap, which is surprisingly much higher than the level cap of 20 as seen in World of Warcraft.

 

The game allows you to team up, battle, complete quests and so on. From what I've played, the community are all friendly and a lot of players really take in the role playing part of the game, so much that it brings the game to life.

 

It's was released in very late 2013 and the Steam reviews are very positive. The graphics follow the old school MMO graphics which really gives you nostalgia as you play. Any lover of Dungeons and Dragons is sure to love this game.

 

Personal rating - 8/10

 

 

Team Fortress 2

TF2 is a Valve made game and has a massive community and great feedback from the Steam reviews. The game is mainly multiplayer however you may play against bots if you prefer. There are a lot of different gamemodes and custom game modes available like with most Valve games.

 

The game itself uses the same mechanics as all Valve created games. The movement, the shooting and so on. For someone who loves Valve games, I really enjoyed my time on TF2. Also, like most Valve games, it isn't demanding, meaning more or less anyone can run it no worries.

 

Personal rating - 7/10

 

 

 

Hopefully you enjoy at least one of these guys, check back in a few weeks for more! :)

    • AI in Multiplayer-solution for non-steam version - tested with v1.4.1

      AI in multiplayer - if you're still looking for "Stronghold 2 Manager"... For those of you that want AI back in the multiplayer so you can do co-op and can't find a solution, read on. The AI in multiplayer was removed from the non-steam version some time ago via a patch I believe. There was a solution using so-called "Stronghold2 Manager" some time back but that always showed up having viral content and was hard to find (and you had to trust...). I found this source code (Mod edit: link removed)

    • New map in progress - Free Build

      I don't usually announce a new map being created, but given that I've recently got back into Crusader 2, I've noticed one massive gripe...   SIEGES FOR FREE BUILD SPAWN IN THE MOST RIDICULOUS SPOTS EVER AND RUIN THE FUN!   Therefore, I am making a free build map with sensible siege spawns, to allow you to defend sensibly against a realistic enemy attack! Keep your eyes peeled! :P

    • What are your favourite games?

      As the title says! What are your favourite games of all time? Whether it's down to the game mechanics, the concept, or the story! Let me know, and why! I should add, this is excluding any games from the Stronghold franchise :P     For me, it's a difficult decision between SWAT 4 and the Titanfall 2 campaign. I love those games. SWAT 4 has such a charm to it for its age, and the game mechanics are so clever and unique, I can't get enough of it! As for Titanfall 2, the story is amazing.

    • Stronghold 2 - Steam Edition, Version 1.5

      Fairly recently, Firefly released a digital Steam edition of Stronghold 2 in order to keep up to date with the growing online digital market. Stronghold 2 on disc has not been selling with the change in computer hardware and in consumer needs. CD ROMs are no longer seen as a requirement of a computer and even pre-built systems often come without. Therefore, getting older games into the digital market allows Firefly to gain more and to also keep games up to date with relative ease.?   Currently,
