I love playing games as much as the next guy, but there is only so much punishment our collective wallets can take each month. There are also those awkward times when you can’t try a game before you buy it and don’t want to take the risk of forking out for a rubbish game. Both of these pesky scenarios are made redundant by free to play games. Whether they use a freemium model are completely free outright, here are ten of the best games you can play today that won’t cost you a penny.
1. Quake Live
When it comes to fast paced PvP shooters, Quake has always been the daddy. It has that certain retro feel to it that many modern shooters can't seem to get right, and it oozes nostalgia at every turn. It's also easier to play than ever, with Quake Live running straight from your browser free of charge. Provided you're fine with downloading a browser plug-in, the only other thing you need to worry about is keeping up with the competition.
