Not much I have left to recommend, though I will say if you don't own it, get Worms Armageddon. The CD version Sold Out Software sells is about 7 bucks depending on where you acquire it, and it can also come with Worms 2 and/or World Party (again, depending on where you get it). Worms 2 is unlikely to work on modern PCs, but Armageddon is still getting updates, and I think World Party has at least a Win 7 fix. Don't bother buying the steam version, you can play with steam users as well as CD users, and the only benefit you have is automatic patch updates.

If you've never ever played Worms and have no clue what it's like, go download Hedgewars, which is free! It's basically the same thing, with different physics and hedgehogs instead of worms. The only reason I suggest Worms over Hedgewars is because Hedgewars is still technically unfinished, it's a good game, but Armageddon just has more content available (not counting cosmetic options, Hedgewars wins hands down here).


I've heard of Sold Out Software as I bought Undying from them. I remember trying a Worms game but I didn't like it. probably cause I sucked at it and/or didn't know what to do. I'll look into Hedgewars though


BTW, If your gonna try a Worms game, Do Ultimate Mayhem or 3D. 2D worms is meh, 3D Worms is AWEEESOOMEE!

I'd have to disagree with you there, Ultimate Mayhem is entertaining enough but the camera + distances involved make firing with any kind of accuracy more difficult than it need be - 2D worms is infinitely more accessible in that regard.

3D Worms in general has an absolutely terrible camera, and that alone kills the games for me. I don't even like the 2.5D games, 3D graphics in general just do not seem to go well with Worms.

On topic, I see you have Just Cause 2 TC, have you tried the multiplayer mod? It's pretty fun, if a bit chaotic when hundreds are playing at a time.

What is your actual taste in games? (free or otherwise)

Might help people narrow down suggestions instead of just listing all known/currently popular free games.

I have the mod but never used it cause Just Cause wasn't installed.

I like fast paced game, shooters, RPGS, fantasy, historical, modern, sci-fi, among other things. I prefer 3D vs 2D/retro but I do like 2D and retro. I liked both NightSky and Cthulu saves the word. I primarily like SP games though Team Fortress 2 and Fallen earth are both good.

The Sc2 arcade is much different than ladder or melee maps, theres card games to social group games like Mafia to a PvP cat vs mouse TD called Island Defense.
