  1. DotA gets a lot of hate for being a MOBA, but its my all time favorite game. The level of depth and complexity is astounding ,but it doesn't feel artificial. Everything in DotA feels justified, and every game of it feels completely unique (at least to me). Having played 4000 games, I could easily see myself playing another 4000, time permitting. If anyone wants to play some dota lmk. Unfortunately it is GaaS, but i don't see it going anywhere soon. Its a money printing machine for valve.
  2. I never played nuclear dawn but I had an absolute blast playing natural selection 2. I also distinctly remember bf 2/2142 having a commander role that was sort of rts.
  3. There are a lot of decent free games out there, but finding them can be a chore. Finding a decent one can be a nightmare, and unfortunately a lot of them are games-as-a-service or oddly free shovel-ware/flash games. I Tried to avoid the really old stuff that may not run on modern systems unless it's been updated somewhat recently. I also intentionally left out Doom and its multitude of engines and ports and variations, because it would probably clutter up the list with another 10 or 15 entries. I also tried to keep it mostly freeware or free and open source, but I can't make any guarantees. None of these games should have any way to pay for anything, except maybe donations to the dev or something. There are a few exceptions like Cave Story, Spelunky, and Maldita Castilla, and N which all have a paid version; however, the version that is free more than constitutes a playable game. I will say that some of these games look a little dated and may not be fully finished, but I tried my best to only put finished (or close enough to constitute reasonably playable), or actively and far-into development games. I kept the game PC focused but a good chunk of these games run on linux and about half run on OSX I think. I do have a master spreadsheet with more info like release dates, and whether you need steam or another service to download and use these games. I wanted to avoid steam altogether but its honestly so huge that some really good free games like Zombie Panic Source would be left out, and it might be bias, but that was a teenage favorite mod for me. I can say that only 5 or 6 need steam and only 3 need another service (the command and conquer games (except openRA)). Thanks to BTGBullseye, and Prinny for adding to the list!
