Yes I wrote that right. Not a typo. And before you jump to conclusions, I am not encouraging you to pirate games either. You can play many games absolutely for free. There is no dearth of options either. First person shooters, role playing games, strategy games etc - all are available. I don't intend to insult your machine my giving choices about flash games either. So first to whet your appetite I will post a few screenshots.
|America's Army 3|
Ok, lets begin with America's Army. Launched to encourage people to volunteer for the US Army, the game is super cool and multi dimensional. Graphics is great for such a free game and the mods and multiplayer content is massive.
So, if you intend to start with gaming for free and being fully legit, I suggest you download this game via Steam and get started. And don't worry there is no compulsion in joining the Army, so you can play fine. Let me tell you, the game is real good.
Now comes Battlefield. Yes, of the Bad Company fame. You can enjoy this sweet game for free, though there are some annoying disturbances that begs for money sometimes shamelessly. But still it's free and it's fun. You can get it here.
Who says Fifa games are too expensive? They have one for free as well. All you need is a browser and some disk space. The graphics is stunning. Of course not even near desktop graphics intensive games, but hey, you are not paying for them. If you love getting a few kicks in place and don't bother paying, Fifa Online can be a good choice for you.
Ok, now this is a bit cartoonish, but still worth mentioning, because of the variety of missions available. But please, this one is really for kids, though it is slightly disturbing. Killing was never so cute!
|Need For Speed World|
Need For Speed World
You read it right. Dreams have been answered. Once you have a good internet connection you can race for free. The graphics is excellent and the overall experience satisfying. You can play it here.

You may or may not like Mr. Woods, but you certainly do appreciate a small game behind your boss' back. Well, actually it might be a little more than a small game. In fact it is Huuuuuge. The graphics is pleasant and you can start by designing your player and play, all the while earning XP. A basic idea brilliantly presented, and all you need is a browser. You can get it here.
You have other options. Find the exhaustive list here.
In any case, remember, Google is your best friend!
