Dota 2

Dota 2 is a free-to-play MOBA which is currently the most popular game on Steam.

Path of Exile

Path of Exile is a free-to-play Diablo II clone which offers both depth and replayability.

The game includes cosmetic microtransactions, meaning that players cannot pay to gain a gameplay advantage over others, and offers a massive amount of depth and theory-crafting opportunities due to its large passive skill tree and unique skill gem system.

War Thunder

War Thunder is a faithful recreation of World War II aerial, naval, and land-based combat.

The game’s biggest draw is it’s aerial combat module, which somehow manages to include both a complex flight simulation and arcade-style dogfighting.

War thunder is free-to-play, although players can purchase currency along with new vehicles or weapons if they choose.

Ark: Survival of the Fittest

Ark: Survival of the Fittest is a standalone adaption of a popular Ark: Survival Evolved mod, and is free-to-play on Steam,

The game is essentially a recreation of the Hunger Games with the added danger of dinosaurs and a shrinking play area.

It has some rather heavy system requirements, but has proven relatively popular and is definitely worth the download.
