So since quitting Warcraft for the time being.. I have found various other games to play for free..
Yes FREEEE.. Free is good.. however.. typically there is always a catch like better items/higher levels/all achievements.. which yes sucks.. but meh what the heck.. I am holding out for SWTOR (which I preordered Yesterday).. I have found two pretty decently entertaining sources for my gaming needs; Steam (http://store.steampowered.com/) and then little games on Facebook (Facebook.com)
Game Number 1: Spiral Knights
This is a pretty simple dungeon slash and bash pew pew game. It fulfills my need for the whole distress/arcade... pretty much button mashing and basic game.. but its cute and free.
Game Number 2: Alliance of Valiant Arms
For a 'free' FPS.. This is pretty good in my opinion.. of course for the cool items and unlocks they want you to pay money.. but for a temporary fix or the simple need to play an FPS and have that PVP void filled it works really well. The PVP is quite fun and the ranking system makes almost perfect sense to me.
Game Number 3: Champions Online
So this is a good idea.. but you can only play certain specs and have a limited amount of skills and costumes.. If you played the non free version it is not quite as fun as i would imagine just starting as free is.. But you can do a lot for 'Free' and get your mmorpg fix in.
Game Number 4: D & D Heroes of Neverwinter
Very fun and addictive. A nice dungeon crawl game that you can play alone or add other people's characters. The nice thing about this game is you do not 'have' to bug your friends.. sure sending gifts and sharing is nice.. but you do not have to have all that spam on your FB page!
Game Number 5: The Sims Social
This game is incredibly addictive.. It reminds me of a simplified sims 1 but its cute.. and free and entertaining. Be careful tho as you will loose track of time.. and you do have to spam your friends..
(which is really the only bad thing that I have found with it.. trying to delete all those posts on my wall after I have checked the request..)
