This Quarantine, EAT SLEEP GAME, REPEAT

Hey, couch potatoes! Hoping y’all are doing extremely well. Bored? We feel you! Don’t worry we’ve got you covered. Here’s a curated list of the best free games that you can start playing straight off! (Assuming you have a good wifi connection. If not, well, RIP.)

Add me on steam


13) Dota Underlords

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Genre: Multiplayer strategy
Platform: PC, iOS, Android

To an outsider, the genre of auto chess appeared overnight, with a few games influenced by a well-known Dota 2 mod rolling out from developers all over the world. The basics are an equivalent for each: you enter a match, buy a few heroes from a random starting list, place them on an 8×8 grid, then watch them face-off against the team of a rival player. Dota Underlords as it now stands is the best auto chess you can play, despite Valve putting it as an early access game. The studio updates the title frequently to combat outnumbered units and promote new tactics and has some even bigger changes on the horizon that will bring new layers of strategy to each match.


12) Smite

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Genre: MOBA
Platform: PC, PS4, Switch, Xbox One

Unleash the special tactics of each deities, ancient weapons, and earth shattering energies. Bring lightning down on your enemies like Zeus, kill as Loki from the shadows or turn and trick your enemies like the Monkey King, Sun Wukong.

Unlike other MOBAs, SMITE takes you straight onto the battlefield with a perspective of third-person action. A new pantheon of strategic possibilities awaits from blind-side embushes to targeted shots.

Didn’t play a war arena before? Get no fears. Auto-buy, auto-level, and the Arena-like deathmatch mode let you jump right into divine MOBA action. Aspiring to be a Pro? Top the ladders, enter a professional squad and compete at the SMITE World Championship as well.


11) Runescape

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Genre: MMORPG
Platform: PC

There is a reason that this golden oldie is still tremendously popular. One of the largest, and one of the best MMORPGs ever, continues to be continuously updated, offering a huge, ever-evolving world to explore. There are a multitude of challenges to choose from, along with combat, battling, quests and mini-games to boot, depending on what you fancy doing.


10) World of Tanks

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Genre: Tank battle sim
Platform: PC, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360

If your idea of hell is to get your face lasered into bits by precocious teenagers in Call of Duty, then World of Tanks might be for you. This game is all about tactics, outsmarting enemies, and tailoring your tank to match your style of play with the right armaments. A well-prepared assault will break a fast trigger finger nine times out of ten, so it’s ideal for seasoned players looking to wreak havoc at a more considered pace.


09) Paladins

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Genre: Multiplayer shooter
Platform: PC, PS4, Switch, Xbox One

Paladins is set in a colorful universe of fantasy and features a variety of champions from sharpshooting humans to mech-riding goblins, magical elves, and jetpack-clad dragons. — Champion brings a specific collection of abilities to the battlefield and constantly introduces new Champions to the Paladins, keeping the game exciting.

The Paladins is Free-to-Play. Anything else that affects gameplay can be unlocked with cosmetic items available for purchase, simply by playing.
Whatever your style of play is, you can find it at Paladins. With the deckbuilding program of Paladins, you can become an iron sight sniper, a specialist in grenade-slinging explosives, or a track star with an assault weapon – all with the same Champion.

Platform: PC

EVE Online is a community-driven spaceship MMO where players can play free from countless choices, choosing their own course. In an ever-expanding sandbox, experience space exploration, enormous PvP and PvE wars, mining, manufacturing and a flourishing economy of players.It’s similar to an unrestricted free trial available in World of Warcraft’s likes, which essentially gives you access to all mining, piracy, manufacturing, trading, exploring and fighting, but leaves certain abilities off limits until you pay a monthly fee. But with a lot of content still very much available before the paywall, booting is an absolute pleasure and a bargain.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Editor’s Choice

Genre: First-person shooter

Call of Duty Warzone at the battle royale apple is not the first bite of the show, but it is the best.

Two supported modes — Battle Royale and Plunder — let you drop into a map made of unforgettable pieces of Call of Duty, looking for loot and fighting alongside your friends.

Loadout drops also let you bring over your favorite equipment from the regular multiplayer mode of Modern Warfare, and the Gulag gives you the ability to battle back into matches also after you’ve been taken out.
