Want to play a bunch of great games for free? Steam has you covered. Valve issued a press release yesterday detailing the list of ten games that you will be able to spend an unlimited amount of time on over the next four days in what they’re declaring the biggest Steam free weekend ever. Before you get too excited, keep in mind you don’t get the keep the games after the weekend is over, but if you want a chance to try out some great games before you consider dropping hard earned cash on them, now is the time.
STEAM FREE WEEKEND STARTS THURS, OCT 16
October 15, 2014 – The largest “Free Weekend” ever begins tomorrow on Steam. Beginning at 10 am Pacific Time, 10 popular titles will be available to play free of charge, and available for purchase at tremendous savings.

No purchase is required to play any or all of these games all weekend long. All you need is a Steam account (available free of charge).

If you have somehow missed these (mostly) awesome games since they’ve been available and want a jumping off point, I can’t recommend XCOM: Enemy Unknown enough. Just a fantastic game all around and, even though I got on the bandwagon pretty late, I’m still playing it and its expansion XCOM: Enemy Within to this day. Be warned – if you try XCOM first you may not get around to ever trying the other games at all. It’s addicting as all hell.
No matter what game(s) you decide to try, don’t forget to pick them up at the steep discounts while you can if you want them.Source: Joystiq
