Three Totally Free Video Games That Gamers Should Know About

Gaming these days isn’t cheap, and that doesn’t just include the hardware it takes to play awesome looking games. At retail stores many new games today can cost as much as $60, unfortunately for developers many gamers just can’t justify the pricey investment and resort to acquiring games illegally. Luckily for everyone, we’ve got a list of three games that you can play for free which don’t involve any illegal internet pirating.

1. The Hunter (Avalanche Studios) - The Hunter is probably far and away the best hunting video game ever made, and yet it’s completely free to download and play on the computer. The Hunter is a hyper-realistic game that may turn many casual gamers off with its slow pace and attention to detail, but for hunting fans the game is a dream come true.

Without the right strategy, you could go hours without finding a single thing to shoot at, and there’s a lot of attention that needs to be paid about your scent, what direction the wind is pushing it and of course the noise that you make. Although The Hunter does have a paid subscription plan that allows players to hunt more animals with more weapons and across more areas, it is absolutely free to hunt your standard Mule Deer, which is a preferred target even with a subscription because of the beautiful racks you can collect from the bucks.

2. League of Legends (Riot Games) – League of Legends is a free online computer game that was made in part by some of the original creators of the mega-popular Defense of the Ancients mod for Warcraft III. Players compete in teams up to five to conquer the base of their opponent, with a great deal of strategy and team play to be found along the way. The game features over 60 different playable characters that can be unlocked over time by simply playing more games and spending the points you earn to get them, however characters can also be acquired more quickly by purchasing them with real cash.

3. Alien Swarm (Valve) - Alien Swarm is an intriguing co-op game developed by Valve and distributed for free on their Steam platform. Squads of up to four players are tasked with the job of clearing out and fighting through maps infested with aliens, and includes many different items that can be unlocked along the way to make the process all the more fun. This is a great free game to play with your friends, or challenge yourself with at higher difficulties.
