This is Jay Davis for NukeNorway. Just one sec and I’ll start the video- but this is exciting news and I just HAVE to tell someone about this- Okay, so you’re bored out of your skull. You’ve got no games to play, and right now, you’ve got no money to buy new ones with. You’re broker than a crackhead after a 5 rock weekend.
So what do you do? Well my Youtube super friends, never fear, cause I got ya covered with some free games in this weeks “FREE GAME SMACKDOWN! “.
That’s right we got completely FREE games knocking down your door and raping your kitty cat!
Okay sorry, there’s no smackdown, I just always wanted to announce one of these videos like those Monster Truck show guys! (monster truck ad) But no, forget that, I’m just gonna give you a sweet lil countdown of free games that you can download and play for NO MONEY DOWN!
I’ll try to calm down now. So this list is only a TOP 4. WHY is it only a TOP 4 you ask?
Well- it turns out that there just AREN’T that many good COMPLETELY FREE games.
Keep in mind, for this list, we’re NOT counting game demos. We’re also NOT counting games where you can pay a little extra and get some new guns, or bonus XP points, or cut out HOURS and HOURS of gameplay time building your character just by paying to level up – so no APB:Reloaded, no Team Fortress, and no League of Legends(even though I have to admit I LOVE those friggin games and I know people are gonna be pissed that I didn’t include them!) BUt time is money peoples, and you shouldn’t have to play hours to get stuff that some noob can come in and BUY in five minutes- at least not if the game developer is gonna call the game FREE to play.
SO NO- nuh uh!- In this countdown, we’re only counting down games that are 100% free-to-play.
Games, where paying extra or even paying 1 little cent, will not get you ANY advantage whatsoever… so yeah, ….there’s only 4 of em….. (crying) But enough whining, here are the top 4 free-to-play games on the net. AT #4 we have QuakeLive.com. Quakelive is basically the old ID game Quake Arena, but now you can play it completely for free on the net. You can run around, picking up weapons and blasting other online players in the face, right inside your web browser via a free plugin download. There IS the option of paying for a “Premium” or “Pro” account on QuakeLive, BUT all that really gets you is access to a few extra maps, and from what I’ve seen, there are hardly ever any people even PLAYING on the extra maps- so what’s the point?
Players who PAY don’t get ANY extra guns or abilities, so it’s a nice level playing field whether you pay or not.
So… just play it for free!(FREE!) errr yeah. The link to QuakeLive is in the video description below.
At #3, we have Black Mesa.
Basically Black Mesa is a remake of the first Half Life game. However, Black Mesa is done with the updated Valve Source Engine that was used to power Half Life 2- so the graphics are better, the game physics are better, and goddamnit- it’s just more fun. And oh wait- did I mention that it’s completely, totally, 100% free? (FREE!
Wait just one minute- I have to tell someone about this… At #2, we have Battlefield 1942. And wait- I know what you’re saying… “Wait a minute dick-cheese! Battlefield 1942 is a commercial game.
But Au Contraire mon fraire! From now until March 1, 2013, Battlefield 1942 is as free as that delicious bubblegum I found under my desk an hour ago. (MMMM, it was strawberry) Anyway, Electronic Arts is offering the game as a free download to commemorate the game’s 10 year anniversary.
And I have to say- I played Battlefield 1942 10 years ago and I still enjoy it just as much today as I did then… well maybe 84.2% as much…
BUT the point is- it’s an awesome game, even if it is getting just a little bit dated. IN Battlefield 1942, you’re a soldier in World War 2 fighting as either as an Axis or an Allie and you can drive cars, you can fly fighter planes, you can captain a boat, or you can even just blow shit up with a tank. And you can do all of this online against REAL human opponents. (whisper)And … um… it’s free.
Finally at #1- the best free game on the net and one of my personal favorites- hell, it’s EVERYONE’S favorite- It’s Happy Wheels. This little flash game is packed full of tons of tons of gory, freaky fun.
And once you get sick of playing through all the online map challenges, you can always just go back the next day and other Happy Wheels players have created a WHOLE NEW set of custom maps and challenges. So hop into the game and be the world’s worst parent, a fat scooter daredevil, or a crazy old man in a wheel chair – and try your luck at literally hundreds of different maps and challenges.
