Games That Are Free And Fun


There are tons of PC games out there. Also, there are many, many free PC games, but there are so few that are actually worth playing. I’ve been searching for some free good entertainment on the web, excluding the online flash games and such. Here is what I’ve come up with.

The first one, and I think one of the most impressive, is Alien Swarm, released by some game designers at Valve. The idea is simple, but addictive: you and four other friends have to put yourselves in the skins of marines and cooperate to destroy an alien infestation somewhere underground. You have to use your wits and take full advantage of teamwork and weapons. This game is available on Steam free of charge and it’s certainly worth downloading.



I’m sure everybody’s heard by now about the second title: Minecraft. Actually, only Minecraft Classic is free. For those who just tuned in, Minecraft is a very original game giving you endless possibilities. The action takes place in a very square 3D world, where you have to survive the ruthless night, when zombies come out and play. For this, you have to build yourself a shelter and gather resources. As you advance, you have many things that you can build, from boats to complex circuits and railroad systems. The free version gives you unlimited resources. The paid version is not that expensive and it’s certainly worth a try, too. Last but not least, the third position is occupied by what I think is already known: Trackmania Nations Forever. This is a free arcade racing game. In the freeware version, you choose a car and race around a track, trying to get the best time as possible. You compete online with users from all around the world.



It has really nice graphics and interesting gameplay, but it only gets the third place because it didn’t seem that addictive to me. But that depends in the person playing. This concludes my top three PC games list. I’m sure that we will see many more free PC games in the future. Let’s hope their just as good as or better than these.

Fun Flash Games


Whether in search for a few minutes of fun during those long hours in school, or you’re just looking for some games that don’t require too much fuss to install, flash games are a very fun and quick solution to your problems.
<-300x250 Medium Rectangle - center->

I’m going to tell you about my personal top three flash games at the moment. Of course, this classification changes in time for me, as I discover new flash games or rediscover old flash friends.



Occupying the number three position in my book is the hot new sensation Angry Birds. For those who don’t really know what this game is about, the idea is simple and found in everyday life… more or less. Some pigs stole some wingless birds’ eggs, and now these birds are really annoyed. You could even say that they are angry. Thus, they decide to manufacture a giant slingshot and throw themselves into the castles where the pigs live in. It’s a Crush the Castle sort of game, to be concise. Second place is occupied by a survival type of game, called The Last Stand. There is also a The Last Stand 2, but the idea is similar: you are one of the lucky survivors in a zombie filled world and during the night, these creatures attack your barricades. During the day, you must use your time wisely to repair your weapons, buy new ones and search for survivors. It may seem like a simple idea, but it’s a really addictive game. Or, maybe I’m just a sucker for shooting zombies.



First place is occupied by a game inspired by that “Kids Next Door” cartoon. The idea behind this game is simple and addictive: for some reason, some hamsters wanted to fly a really long distance; so, five furry volunteers line up and, with the help of three other such rodents they launch into the sky and try to stay there as long as possible by picking up hamster balls to bounce them off the ground, rockets to speed them up and other thingamagigs.

2 Days to Vegas


2 Days to Vegas is an action and adventure oriented game which is developed by Steel Monkeys. This is set to place in major cities of United States. This game is set to release for Play Station, Xbox 360 and Windows system. This game took almost 8 years in development but still the final release date has not been announced.






Development of this game began in 2003 at one of the studio of Steel Monkeys. Later game had been moved to second production studio of Steel Monkey. The story line of this game consists of a man named Vinny, who has just been released from Rikers Prison and finds that his younger brother Tony got stuck in some trouble in Las Vegas. In the total duration of 48 hours, players have to trek over America covering maximum cities on their way to the City of Sin. Till now confirmed locations include New York and America.


Last year, at the brief interview of Edwin Loo, the producer of this game, he told us that every city of this game will be modeled as it looks in real. For this they have to travel to all the city that they have planned to show in this game in order to find out which building has been raised and new building that are made so that at the time of release of the game, everything looks same. The game is large enough to be copied completely on DVD, so they have to cut down the chunks of the game or may have to release the game on multiple disks. In 2006, Steel Monkey had announced that they would be using NovodeX Physics software and AGEIA PhysX SDK technology. Not only this, they have also licensed SpeedTreeRT SDK of IDV Inc that will help them to create virtual plants. Steel Monkey showed some of the new screen shots of this game in 2007. He assured that all the screenshots were real-time and not pre-rendered. In 2008, they revealed multiple screenshots and two new videos of 2 Days to Vegas. They have used wireless portability that has allowed them to use everyday surrounding as sets thus saving time in building sets for the game.




This game is full of car chasing, unexpected twist, shootout and all such things are enough to keep you on the edge of the seat while playing this game. Action is set in all the major cities of America and takes place within an intense time period of 48 hours. Overall this game is based on gangster life filled with car chasing action and raise against the clock.


There are other crime related games available like Grand Auto Theft, Max Payne, Hitman etc but if you want to try your hand in some gambling, action fighting, chasing, then you have to try 2 Days to Vegas. Its graphics are mind blowing and sound effect has also contributed a lot in increasing the game demand.
