20 Best Free PC Games – proper entertainment on your computer screen


ExtremeTech has compiled their list of the 20 Best Free PC Games around at the moment, and it’s pretty good. Flash games are specifically excluded, so there will be some games here that you’ve not seen before. Good to bookmark for those rainy Sundays.

 We’re here to help you separate the wheat from the chaff. What follows are some of the best free PC games you can get online. Our rules are simple: 1. It must be an honestly free game… 2. No utterly simple flash games… 3. It has to run on modern Windows systems.

Nigel is the managing editor of the Red Ferret, as well as a freelance columnist for the Sunday Times newspaper in London. Loves tech and fancies himself as a bit of a futurist, but then don’t we all?

  • How could they have missed Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory? It doesn't get much freer than giving it away, and it runs on a P3? It's been around since 2003 and there are still hundreds of servers out there. It sucks being old.

  • Or even the free SimCity Dan. :)

  • Yeah but it's Sim City Nigel, not an FPS.
    I'm sure there's plenty of free chess games out there too. ;-)

  • I could come up with my own list of two most played pc games and they are all on facebook LOL

  • Hey, a very good post. I´ve never heard from some of the listed games. Two big thumbs up. Best regards Max
