The 50 best free games on PC

No free-to-play, just free.

Featured post

There. That’s all the free games that matter – except for the ones you like most, which are featured in an invisible part of this list. Cave Story is number 51.

Free games are diverse, which of course means there’s hundreds of extremely good games that we haven’t featured on this list. We may therefore one day expand it or change it (it’s seen one revision already), but until then you can help by writing your own entries in the comments. Write a few sentences about why a thing you love is great and toss in a link, and we can all help lead one another to a better, freer tomorrow.

Sick of the sight of all the games below and want still more free things to play? Check out our free game columns Live Free Play Hard, Freeware Garden, and Free Loaders, which goes up every Tuesday and archives its best finds in this collection.
