2020 has been a year of many setbacks and generally not the best year in any sphere of life. However, with the lockdown because of Covi-19 people have been playing more games and the gaming industry has seen quite a boom despite current events. People have been buying more games to make their stay indoors more bearable and entertaining. Recently many AAA titles like GTA V, Borderlands 2 and Ark 2: Survival Evolved went free on the Epic games store and people have been really quick on the uptake. 

In fact, so many people logged in to download GTA the EPIC served crashed for a while. Free games are therefore always welcome and though these games were free only for a time a really big number of people have downloaded these and are probably enjoying them as we speak. However, these are not the only free games available to us now. When we talk about free games now, we think about titles like Fortnite or the recent Call of Duty: Warzone whose free-to-play nature has allowed an unprecedented number of players with Fortnite reaching 350 million plus players quite recently. But the gamer in 2020 does not have to choose only between these two. 

There is an expansive number of free games available to us these days. Of course, not all of these games are absolutely free like EVE online for which you still have to pay a monthly subscription fee to enjoy everything. But at least you can jump into some of them without worrying too much about microtransactions. Some games on the list like Planetside 2 will surely make you think that it is definitely not a free game and some have very steep learning curves like DOTA 2. But whether RPG, MMO, FPS or any other genre of games what they have all in common is that they give you quite the experience despite being free.
