10 of the best free to play PC games: League of Legends, Path of Exile and more!

Lately, everything is free to play; most people reading this have probably played plenty of free to play games, but the problem with the genre is that they’re not only free to play, but they’re often also pay to win and pay to enjoy. There are some free to play games that restrict features so much that the games are near unplayable without paying.

But fear not, penny-pinching gamers! Tech Digest is here to show you some of the best free to play games out there, those offering the best bang for relatively-little buck. Click below to get started.

    Why isn't GW2, Tera, AION, Vindictus, RO on the list as well?

    • Dale Parker

      Because this article HAS to be a joke.

      • Nyankana

        ah hah! no wonder I seem to smell some western style favoritism.

      Well GW2 is not f2p, it is B2P. AION tanked years ago and Vindictus is so so at best.

      • Nyankana

        True, but GW2 is only one time payment. AION, even though tanked, is still a really good MMO. Great graphics engine, great gameplay, and f2p is a huge plus. Vincdictus can get repetitive and the gameplay is not open world like most MMO, but IMO the graphics is stunning (especially the female characters.)

    lol at league being the best free to play game. Plz, LoL's free to play model is as sleazy as any other third rate free to play game. “It's free! But look at all those champions and runes that you don't have. If you give us money you can have them right now!” What a joke.

    • Xbrotha

      You cannot buy runes with RP…

      Only champions, skins and boosts.

    • yokoono

      Welp you sure look like an idiot

    • Cajun

      you clearly dont know what you are talking about. There is a weekly rotation of champions to play that are well rounded choices so you can play any role. AND as it already has been said, champions can be earned by playing. Know what you are talking about before you speak troll.

Wait and see :D

    Whoever wrote the SWTOR bit obviously hasn't played it yet. The game is clearly set in a time period where the Empire and the REPUBLIC were at war * , not “Rebels”. -.-

    *Well, it's a shaky peace treaty but they might as well be.

    Funny to see some people complain about the free to play concept. There is a lot of investment involved in making a game. And it has to be paid somehow.Personally I play Leauge of Legends a lot, they dont have the 'pay to win' system. Even cheap skates who want everything free in life can enjoy the game without ever having to spend money on it. And such games are supported by people (like me I guess) who occaisonally buy nice skins and such, for extra enjoyment and to support the great game with their regular updates.
