Don’t Sleep on FREE FPS Games

Renegade-X is a fantasticly free tactical shooter based in the Command & Conquer universe.

First-person/third-person shooting games represent one of my favorite genres in video gaming. Even though the games mostly follow the same formula with some changes here and there, it doesn’t take away how fun these games are for me. Having been a gamer for more than three decades, it becomes harder to find games that are truly unique from the interior to the exterior. Yet with first-person shooters, I don’t seem to tire of the action they provide.

I have a large collection within this genre and I enjoy the variety. The games range from post-apocalyptic and historical wars to thevsupernatural and outer space. Whether it’s Call of Duty, Arma 3, Doom, Halo, Titanfall 2, Gears of War, or Unreal Tournament 2004, I have a blast every time. I also have many independent titles within the genre that include Ravenfield, Angels Fall First, Insurgency, Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, Tannenburg, etc. But what I will present to you in this post aren’t games that have a cost but ones that you can download right now for free. 

We live in a time where is much more free video gaming content than ever before. While Epic Games and Steam have been amazing resources throughout the year for acquiring top quality free games, there are other resources that will also yield a treasure of free games. You can always use the link menu above under the “FREE GAMES” section to either get some recommendation or visit links to websites that house some good free titles. But for first and third-person shooting fans, here are some PC games that won’t cost you anything but a few clicks. Please note that the majority of this list includes games you can play both solo and with other players.
