There used to be a time when free video game you found online weren’t exactly top tier games. However, thanks to the micro transaction model (love it or hate it), more game developers are creating fun, professional and wildly entertaining video games that are free to download and play. The companies then make their profits from the most dedicated of players who are willing to pay for items that grant them a competitive edge. Below are three video games that you should, at the least, try out today. The downloads are quick and the learning curve is pretty easy on all of these games.
Hearthstone is Blizzard’s newest game. It is a digital, collectable card game based in the Warcraft universe. Players are randomly assigned a class to start, and must conquer each individual class in order to play as that particular class/character. As a player levels up each class deck, they are given new bonus card packs that allow more strategy to be implemented into their decks. The higher ranking players you play, the more powerful their cards will be. This game is highly addictive once you understand beginning strategies.

World of Tanks is made by Wargaming and is a free MMO that places players in the seat of various tanks for battles that can either be won via killing the entire opposing fleet or having enough friendly tanks in the opponent’s start location for long enough that their base is captured. The game plays much more like a high stakes chess match that has an immense player base, which means their is next to no wait time in order to join a new battle. This game happens to be a favorite free game at Rock Videogames, the graphics are excellent, the ui and controls on point and the game forces players to think and act strategically instead of zerging around mindlessly. Try it out, thank us later.
