Top 12 video games of 2023 by Paper Unicorn Games

Top 12 video games of 2023 by Paper Unicorn Games

This has been an excellent year for the video game industry, not only because they have made money thanks to the pandemic but because they have released new consoles and perfect games

What would have become of us in 2022, the year in which we could hardly leave the house, but series, movies, books, or video games? The latter has had an excellent year, as they have made the endless hours of confinements more bearable.

As it can not be otherwise, this list is personal and depends entirely on my tastes as a player, so I could tell you there are other best games of the year. I like pistachio ice cream, and you like vanilla ice cream, that’s okay: we both eat ice cream.

I have no doubt, however, that in this list, there are video games for everyone, from those who want to test their reflexes with impossible difficulties to those who simply want to relax in a virtual world.

Video games are increasingly better and more varied digital recreations, so there is much to celebrate this year that we have had, for better and worse, more time at home to enjoy this form of leisure.

HADES (PC, SWITCH) – Top 1 video games 2023

I’m not at all afraid to give the title to the best game of the year, the GOTY for those who want to say it in English, to an indie game of a niche genre and starring Zagrao, the rebellious son of the god of Underworld, who has become obsessed with leaving the realm of death and will have to fight hordes of enemies in different levels of Tartarus.

What characterizes games like Hades is its repetition loop, which in this case is perfect, no more and no less: you play, you get as far as you get, you die and excellent skills, you unlock weapons, you establish alliances with the charismatic characters of Greek mythology, you expand what you know about the plot, and you try again to escape from the realm of the dead. And you repeat. And on. And again. And on and on. And you don’t get tired, ever: that ‘just one more game’ is a lie.

Whether you get it or not, Hades has content for dozens and dozens of hours, with intelligent dialogues (that never repeat themselves, it’s incredible), excellent character development, astonishing design and aesthetics, and a story that unfolds in a way that is only possible in a videogame.

After more than 60 hours playing it, and the ones I still have left, I keep smiling with every interaction, and I keep playing it before going to sleep. Because that’s another one, you can play in half-hour sessions and always be satisfied. In other words, the best video game of 2023 and one in which its workers have not been exploited to finish it.


Revolutionary games are no longer made nowadays because taking risks is very complicated, and genres are tied and well tied… but Half-Life: Alyx can almost be said to be so because of how well it adapts all the innovations introduced by virtual reality in recent years to a long plot within an already very recognizable franchise.

The video game is a medium that lives and dies by interaction and how it makes you feel. This game puts you in the character’s body, forces you to handle the gun in a different way (reloading, aiming, everything is different when you do it in virtual reality), and frames everything in a world where even shaking a bottle of wine surprises you.

Add to that how great the plot of the Half-Life saga is, and this game fills a gap in its world that no one had imagined could be there, and for that reason, it is in the second place on this list. If you have the opportunity to play it, even if it’s only half an hour at a friend’s house, I urge you to do so: it’s quite an experience.

The only bad thing about this game is that to play it requires an investment of about 1,000 euros between play, computer, and virtual reality helmet to play it (I’ve done it in an Oculus Quest, and it worked perfectly).

THE LAST OF US: PART II (PS4) – BEST video games of 2023 on PS4

The Last of Us: Part II is a game with a gameplay similar to its predecessor that takes too long at times, with an obsession with collecting resources and improving the skills of its two protagonists. It has incredible graphics, and its technology to hide loading screens is excellent, but it could be better as a pure and challenging game.

Good thing it tells a heartbreaking and novel story for the medium, thanks in part to its two protagonists. Watching Ellie become dehumanized as you reconcile with the story’s villain is powerful and something only a studio like Naughty Dog could have done well.

Only a studio this big can introduce a trans man as a co-protagonist of much of the plot and make one of its two protagonists, Abby, have a body very rarely seen in video games, which still sin of conservative, and even sexist, in the portrayal of their women.

The importance of this game lies more in its plot than in the way you play it, which is not the case with the first two names on this list, whose narrative and handling are inseparable; so if you find it insulting that The Last of Us: Part II doesn’t top this ranking, think about this. Besides, it’s about time to punish a bit the games that exploit their workers to the point of ruining their health.


How ironic that just before strict confinement was decreed throughout Spain, Nintendo released Animal Crossing, a game in which you escape to an island in the middle of the ocean to make an everyday life: plant flowers, help the neighbors, dress up pretty… An idyllic life, in my opinion.

How ironic that many of us took this game when we were locked up at home and bitter, either because of telework or ERTEs or because we were sick with the virus. Each in our circumstances, but with the friendliness, simplicity, and daily novelty of this game.

In an industry rife with games about killing people and being competitive, Animal Crossing is the opposite: collaborating with others, loving the inhabitants of your island, and trying to make their surroundings better while having fun. Because planting trees and decorating your house is fun in this game, something unheard of.


What could go wrong with the remake of one of the most beloved video games in the industry’s history? Beyond some performance issues and a bit of filler, the truth is that Final Fantasy VII Remake is a great game not so much for retelling the story of Cloud and company, but for introducing specific changes and taking a bit of a risk with the traditional remake formula.

Fortunately, the combat system is different and works like a charm, allowing magnificent combinations between combatants and introducing the right touch of strategy and planning in a saga that usually had the fighting as a mere formality between the story.

And the changes in the narrative, which we all know extensively, are exciting because, for fans who already know what happens with Aerith, Sephiroth, or even Zack, it seems to have opened a new path that can change what we take for granted and make this remake something new. The success of this game is not only the nostalgia well rethought, but also the latest opportunities.

DOOM: ETERNAL (PC, PS4, XBO, SWITCH) – top video games 2023

If there’s one thing we’ve learned over years and years of shooter games, it’s that there’s something very satisfying about blowing an enemy’s head off with a gun. The more outlandish the weapon and the critter we shoot, the better.

Doom: Eternal understands that this is the key to its success and has invented countless ways to do it. It builds around it all sorts of excuses that serve solely and exclusively to make you feel very powerful when you kill an enemy. The double jump, the dodge, the sword, the flamethrower… It all adds up to that single purpose.

I can’t say I wouldn’t have preferred the game to focus more on these good ideas that expand the gameplay and less on adding a backstory to the Doom Guy’s kills, or Doom Slayer now, but even I think these stories about our protagonist are nuanced.

Doom: Eternal is pure rhythm, and as a game, it knows how to get you swept up in action. ‘Smash and smash and smash until there’s none left,’ the game says, and indeed, it does.


Yes, Among Us was released in 2018, but it has been in 2023 when the ordinary mortals have discovered it, and we have realized that playing ‘The Thing’ on mobile while chatting with friends on Discord is very, very fun. No wonder streamers haven’t stopped playing it, and its popularity has only increased.

The Among Us proposal is straightforward: up to 10 crew members in a scenario, with their tasks to perform. The twist: there can be between one and three impostors who hunt the others and go unnoticed by the naked eye… until they kill someone or slip through one of the cracks in the stage.

Suspecting everyone, falsely accusing friends, and ending up screwing up or getting the group decision right is genuinely fun and more typical of a board game than a video game. In a year when we can’t be together because of the virus, this game has been an excellent replacement for traditional board games.


Sneaking another remake onto this list may not say anything good about me or this year’s video games, which can’t compete with the re-release of another game. But it just so happens that both games, Final Fantasy VII before and, now, Demon’s Souls, are absolute classics.

In this case, the game’s revision is an almost perfect copy of the original, but with better graphics, fewer bugs, and a few control improvements, making enjoying the first-ever ‘Souls’ wonderful.

Indeed, Demon’s Souls is not so revolutionary out of its context, but even to this day, it is an experience of survival and learning to master a game to the very last detail to succeed. And all this without ever becoming frustrating because what it manages to kill you when you make a mistake is that you do not make it again.

There are few video games like this one, and I can’t think of a better title to use for that brand new PlayStation 5 that you bought as a Christmas present.


If you miss traveling and flying, like me, Microsoft Flight Simulator can be your best medicine. Lucky if you don’t have a good computer, because it’s one of those games that demand everything from a laptop.

As with Animal Crossing, there’s something friendly and fun about the tranquility and realization of piloting a plane in the most plausible way possible (this isn’t GTA, dude) and seeing the world’s landscapes from your home, especially in a year like 2023, where you might not see the street for weeks from your indoor apartment.

The simulation genre has some very loyal users who even build, in this case, airplane cockpits so that the illusion of flying is almost a reality. Still, you don’t have to go so crazy to simply enjoy a little trip at the controls of a small plane and see the world like a bird.

The experiences that video games allow nowadays are so rewarding that titles like Flight Simulator are becoming more and more popular because not all of us need (or do not always need) the fast and constant impulses of a FIFA or a Call of Duty to entertain us.


Maybe I’ve had a silly year with flying games or virtual reality games, but the truth is that the story without excessive ambitions, the significant control, and the setting in the Star Wars universe of this game drove me crazy. Whether you play it in virtual reality (my case) or not (also my case), Squadrons is a very different action game with an arcade essence of yesteryear, but in which there is also room to manage your ship and freak out with the weapons and the maintenance you do with it. This is thanks to Star Wars and that, of course, how can you not have a fancy X-Wing and do all kinds of pirouettes while shooting in a battle against the Empire.

I wish all Star Wars games and their movies were so clear about their identity and what they have to achieve in their consumers. In the case of Squadrons, especially if you play it in virtual reality, it is to make you feel like a pilot from a galaxy far, far away.

Grand Theft Auto 5

Grand Theft Auto 5 (GTA 5) is an action-adventure game developed by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games, which was released in 2013 and has since become one of the most popular and successful games of all time.
GTA 5 takes place in the fictional city of Los Santos in Los Angeles. The movie has three main characters – Michael, Franklin, and Trevor – with unique stories and characters. Players can switch between characters at any point in the game, which adds depth and complexity to the gameplay.

In the open world, players can also explore the city, complete various missions, and try different activities such as driving, flying, and diving. The game’s main storyline is exciting, well-designed, and designed to keep players on their toes. The side missions and activities are also interesting and varied, and there is always something new to discover.

One of the biggest draws of GTA5 is its online mode, where players can complete missions with friends or strangers and play against other players in various game modes. This online mode has been updated several times with new content and features, but it remains one of the most popular elements of the game.

The Witcher 3

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an action RPG developed and published by CD Projekt Red. Released in 2015, it is the third installment in the Witcher series and is based on the novel of the same name by Angel Sapkovsky.

The game takes place in a vast and exciting open world with an intriguing and emotional main story. Players take on the role of Geralt of Rivia, a skilled monster hunter known as the Witcher, who becomes entangled in political intrigue and battles a mysterious and mighty enemy known as the Taste of the Wild.

The game’s combat system is complex and in-depth, requiring careful preparation and strategic thinking to succeed. Players can use various weapons, spells, and potions to defeat enemies, and there is extensive character customization to suit different play styles.

One of the game’s greatest strengths is consistently producing top-quality scenarios. With well-developed characters and excellent voice acting, it’s easy to become emotionally invested in the characters’ fates. The main plot and side quests are interesting and well thought out, and your decisions significantly impact the game’s progression.

The game is also an open-world experience with stunning visuals and impressive detail. Environments range from bustling cities to lush forests and snow-capped mountains, each with hidden treasures and secrets.

Best PC games with low requirements (2023)

The best games with low PC requirements in 2023

We pick up several great games without special requirements that can be enjoyed on a veteran computer.

Having a computer to play new games requires upgrading the machine at least every four to five years (on average, it happens) and investing a sum of money that usually exceeds the price of consoles. Access to PC Master Race makes us look at video games differently and scratch our pockets, which isn’t always possible or desirable, especially if we’re talking about the latter. Can you play on a computer with low-end hardware? The answer is yes, albeit with logical sacrifices that not all gamers want to make.

We devote this report to a review of games with minimum technical requirements to play on almost any modern low to mid-price range computer, although logically meeting some minimum standards nowadays. The following lines serve as a recommendation for games, especially for those who, by fate, travel, or lack of a powerful desktop computer, are forced to survive by relying on a laptop far removed from so-called gaming hardware. Or because we travel with a working laptop.

This is our pick of the best games with low PC requirements, although before we get to the subject, we should clarify that there’s no exact science regarding technical conditions. Games can change their engines over time and thus increase their needs. It can also happen that particular hardware doesn’t work, and it seemed to with a specific title. Also, sometimes sacrificing aspects such as resolution, texture quality, or filters, we can get a decent PC game on ‘chips.’ Also, sometimes the minimum requirements are to play at 60fps. Still, some genres have no problem playing with less smoothness. If there’s one thing that’s special about a compatible platform, it’s that it adapts to all situations.

Games with good graphics and low requirements

Tomb Raider

Lara is back to life thanks to a saga reboot that’s perfectly suited to one of the most popular heroines in video game history. An entertaining story in a good action and exploration game that’s adapted to modern times and has plenty of places to explore and excavate to spend a good handful of hours in.

Minimum requirements: Intel Core2 Duo 1.86GHz or AMD Athlon 64 X2 2.1GHz, 1GB RAM, NVIDIA 8600 or AMD Radeon HD 2600 XT, 12GB free space, and Windows XP Service Pack 3.

Batman: Arkham Asylum

This is one of the best superhero games ever, featuring the best Batman we’ve ever seen in the world of video games. He must battle several famous DC villains as he explores Arkham Asylum in a game that combines action, sandboxing, and remarkable graphics for its time.

Minimum requirements: Intel 3GHz or any AMD Dual Core, 1GB RAM for XP 2 for all other OSes, NVIDIA 6600 or ATI 1300, DirectX 9, 8GB free hard drive space, and Windows XP.

Rayman Legends

Rayman is back in style in 2013 and has left us with one of the best platformers of the decade, combining great pacing, good level design, colorful and excellent graphics that made us enjoy a delivery that’s hard to match.

Minimum requirements: Pentium IV 3GHz or AMD Athlon64 3000+ 1.8GHz, 2GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 6800GT or AMD Radeon X1950 Pro, 6GB free space, and Windows XP SP3.


SMITE offers a free-to-play team-based FPS with strategy and customization elements, where we have to play against different champions, confront other players, level up, collect unique maps that will give us extraordinary abilities during the game, and other mechanics that made the game little by little discover its niche in competitive multiplayer FPS.

Minimum requirements: Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz or Althon X2 2.7 GHz, 2GB RAM, ATI Radeon 3870 or NVIDIA GeForce 8800, 10GB free space, Windows XP SP2.

Survival games with low requirements


Rust is one of today’s modern PC survival games, despite having over 7 years under its belt, which also makes it reasonably affordable in terms of technical requirements, even though we have an open world with lots of vegetation, hundreds of enemies, and dozens of animals and NPCs in front of us. The goal will be to feed yourself, build a shelter, survive, and eventually become the strongest player on the server.

Minimum requirements: Intel Core i7-3770 / AMD FX-9590 processor, GTX 670 2GB / AMD R9 280 graphics card, 10GB of RAM, 20GB of storage space.

Don’t Starve

In the survival game genre, we always have attractive recent offerings such as The Flame in the Flood, which needs a more ‘modern’ team, but there are also stellar games that are less technically demanding and will keep us trapped for hours. The variant we recommend is a genre icon: Don’t Starve. Full-fledged, artistically diverse, and even with multiplayer options.

Minimum requirements: 1.7 GHz processor, 1 GB RAM, Radeon HD5450, 500 MB HDD, DirectX 9.0c, and Windows 7.


Dig, fight and build. That’s the summary of Terraria, a survival game with a retro aesthetic and total freedom in randomly generated worlds that has managed to win over millions of players on Steam.

Minimum requirements: 1.6GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, 20MB of disk space, Shader Model 1.1-compatible graphics, Windows XP.


A title set in a typical world where zombies have taken over and where we are one of the few survivors left on the planet. Explore, fight, search for food, harvest, and seek shelter in a game that didn’t immediately go viral and relies on a pure Minecraft-style dice aesthetic.

Minimum requirements: 2GHz processor, 4GB RAM, 4GB hard drive space.

They Are Billions

The latest phenomenon on Steam is developed in Spain and combines features of the strategy genre with some touches of survival. In They Are Billions, we must establish our colony and protect it from waves of millions of infected trying to end the lives of the few survivors left on Earth.

Minimum Requirements: 2GHz dual-core CPU, 4GB RAM, Intel HD3000 or Radeon or NVIDIA with 1GB VRAM, 4GB free space, Windows 7.

Project Zomboid

Project Zomboid is a project that has been in Early Access for a few years now and puts us in the shoes of a zombie holocaust survivor who must collect, build, grow, fish, and fight for survival in a game with role-playing elements and a vast map.

Minimum requirements: 2.77 GHz dual-core Intel processor, 2 GB of RAM, 1.23 GB of free hard disk space, graphics compatible with OpenGL 2.1.

MOBA-like online games with low requirements

League of Legends

What does it take for an online computer game to succeed? Several factors, but certainly one of them is that it runs on as many computers as possible. Riot Games applied this maxim when launching League of Legends and has continued to maintain it, even with updates, over time to ensure that the MOBA runs on as many computers as possible. You can run League of Legends at a more than decent level on almost any low-end PC.

Minimum requirements: 2 GHz processor, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB HDD, Shader 2.0 compatible graphics, DirectX 9.0c, and Windows 7.

Dota 2

League of Legends didn’t take long to find competition. It’s not for nothing that the cross between the Riot Games saga and the Dota series is worthy of being known by its fans. Despite the smaller community, Dota 2 has retained its type within MOBAs and is another recommended option if you like the genre. You don’t need a NASA computer to be able to play the game decently.

Minimum requirements: Intel 2.8 GHz dual-core or AMD equivalent processor, 4GB RAM, GeForce 8600/9600 GT or Radeon HD2600/3600, DirectX 9.0c, 15GB HDD, and Windows 7.

Online games such as MMORPGs with low requirements

World of Warcraft

World of Warcraft, as it were, remains the most complete MMO option unless your computer is upgraded. Blizzard has updated its engine several times, raising the minimum requirements. Still, it continues to retain type on low-end computers, where we’re willing to sacrifice visual beauty in exchange for performance. One of the most recommended options in its genre.

Minimum requirements: Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 or AMD Phenom II X3 720, GeForce GT 440, Radeon HD 6570 or Intel HD 5000, 2GB RAM, 45GB HDD, and Windows 7.

WoW Classic

Last summer, Blizzard released World of Warcraft Classic, a return to one of the first MMO versions adapted to run on modern computers and to take advantage of the various server and network enhancements we can find today. Otherwise, we see the most classic World of Warcraft experience, which is flawed and, in turn, has lower requirements than the current WOW, so it’s ideal for those with more modest hardware.

Minimum requirements: Windows 7, an Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 or AMD Phenom 8750 processor, NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT or AMD Radeon HD 4850 graphics, and 2GB of RAM.

Genshin Impact

Genshin Impact has been one of the most popular MMOs of the past 2020. A game that can be played on any platform, from PC to consoles to mobile devices, has attracted millions of players to a magical and extraordinary world enjoyed by several fans of the genre. Having appeared on so many different platforms, we’re dealing with a relatively fair game in terms of requirements, which doesn’t mean it has terrible graphics. It’s pretty beautiful from an artistic point of view.

Minimum requirements: Intel Core i5 processor or similar, NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 1030 graphics card or higher, 8GB of RAM, 30GB of disk space.


Another game to appear in this section is Neverwinter, an MMO based on the Forgotten Realms of Dungeons & Dragons, which has surprised players with numerous updates, lots of content, and good gameplay depth, making it one of the most-played MMOs on Steam, all without requiring a potent computer.

Minimum requirements: Core 2 Duo 1.8GHz processor, NVidia GeForce 6600, ATI/AMD Radeon X1300 or Intel G965 Express graphics card, 2GB of RAM, 23GB of disk space.


In the summer of 2020, Riot Games released Valorant, a shooter that became the benchmark for competitive shooters, betting on a game formula halfway between CS:GO and Overwatch that is very well balanced and has many ingredients to keep its players engaged. Also, one of Riot’s goals was to move in very modest teams, finding a shooter with very low requirements.

Minimum requirements: Intel i3-370M processor, Intel HD 300 graphics card, 4GB of RAM.

Apex Legends

One of the kings of Battle Royale is on a playable level and one of the least demanding as it was developed on Valve’s modest Source engine, making it ideal for those of you with low resources on your computer. In addition, we have before us one of the most attractive, moving, fun, and addictive games of its genre, which is currently experiencing its best moment.

Minimum requirements: Windows 7, 3.8GHz Intel Core i3-6300 or AMD FX-4350 4.2GHz processor, NVIDIA GeForce GT 640 or AMD Radeon HD 7730 graphics, and 6GB RAM.

Amid Evil

Amid Evil is a tribute to the first-person shooters of the 90s. If Dusk, also featured in this report, was a nod towards Doom or Quake, we find numerous references to Heretic, Hexen, or Blood in this game. All of this is accompanied by an excellent shooting system and very well-designed levels that will please all fans of retro FPS.

Minimum requirements: Windows 7 64 bit, 2.5GHz processor, 4GB RAM, and Intel HD 4400 graphics.


DUSK is an FPS that delights the most experienced players, who see it as a worthy successor to the first Quake in mid-2019, with very addictive gameplay that reminds us of the best games of the genre and shallow requirements that allow us to enjoy it, practically, in a toaster.

Minimum requirements: Intel Dual Core 2.4GHz, 2GB Ram, GeForce 9800GT, Windows 7.


This Battle Royale has become a viral phenomenon thanks to its fun and addictive gameplay and, above all, the tremendous work of Epic Games, which adds new content to the game every week, giving players challenges, new weapons, skins, and even the craziest game modes. It also doesn’t require a NASA computer to play, making sense since it can even run on mobile devices.

Minimum requirements: Intel Core i3 2.4GHz, 4GB RAM, Intel HD 4000, Windows 7.

Left 4 Dead 2

If you’re looking for an intense co-op action game with little difficulty for those who want to test themselves, we recommend Left 2 Dead 2, a game that, despite being a few years old, remains just as fun and reliable on PC. You don’t need to have the latest hardware to play it. It should run pretty smoothly and without problems. All you need now is three more friends to play it in a good gaming session.

Minimum requirements: Pentium 4 3.0 Ghz, 2 GB RAM, 128 MB graphics, DirectX 9.0c, 13 GB HDD, Windows 7.

Team Fortress 2

Want an online game with team combat, first-person shooter, and character class that’s also free? Team Fortress 2 is the best option you can download on your PC. It runs on Valve’s universal Source engine, making it a perfect candidate to put hours of gameplay into your Steam account. It’s many years old, but it hasn’t lost its fun.

Minimum requirements: 1.7 GHz processor, 512 RAM, DirectX 8.1, NVIDIA GeForce 8, ATI X1600 or Intel HD 3000, 15 GB HDD, and Windows 7.


If you want to take the first-person shooter genre a step further, your not-so-modern computer might be able to run Overwatch decently. Blizzard agrees with Riot Games on a policy of developing games compatible with a wide range of hardware. With Hero Shooter, they’ve achieved this by sacrificing some visuals and resolution.

Minimum requirements: Intel Core i3 or AMD Phenom X3 8650, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460, Ati Radeon HD 4850 or Intel HD 4400, 4GB RAM, 30GB HDD, and Windows 7.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

We continue our recommendations in the shooter genre and do so with a timeless classic in its most “fresh” version: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Also, the brainchild of Valve’s Source engine, the famous anti-terrorist versus terrorist multiplayer, has a way of running on an extensive range of computers. You won’t play more modern games such as Rainbow Six Siege, but you’ll be more than content with CS.

Minimum requirements: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 or AMD Phenom X3 8750, 2GB RAM, 256MB graphics, DirectX 9.0c, 15GB HDD, Windows 7.

Half-Life 2

The list of games that use Valve’s Source engine and run on low-end PCs could be completed with many more suggestions, but we want to include one more, which is inevitable if you’re a fan of first-person shooters. It’s Half-Life 2, a game that today I can run on almost any PC with more than acceptable image quality and that offers a gripping narrative adventure on the height of what’s expected from Valve, who have created games in the past.

Minimum requirements: 1.7GHz processor, 512MB RAM, DirectX 8.1 compatible graphics, 6.5GB hard drive, and Windows 7.

Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter

If you prefer to eliminate first-person stress and not complicate your existence with plot twists, our offering is called Serious Sam. It’s a game with years and several installments under its belt, but it’s still enjoyable, believable, and insane. Revisiting this 2000s classic in HD doesn’t require a lot of hardware.

Minimum requirements: Pentium IV 3 Ghz or AMD Athlon 64 6500, 1 GB of RAM, GeForce 7600, Radeon X1600 with Shader Model 3.0, DirectX 9.0c.

Halo Spartan Assault

If you’re an action fan looking for another experience that gives you a different perspective on the genre, a good recommendation for your PC gamer on the verge of retirement would be Halo Spartan Assault (also Spartan Strike). You can find it cheaply on Steam (4.99 for both games), and it’s perfect for resting your head while completing missions with a well-aimed shot.

Minimum requirements: dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, DirectX 10, Radeon 3670, NVIDIA GT 8600 or Intel HD 3000, 2.5GB HDD, and Windows 7.

Lineage 2

Lineage 2 is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game developed and published by NCsoft. Originally released in 2003, the game has undergone numerous updates and expansions over the years, with the latest being “Lineage 2: Essence” in 2020.

The game is set in the fantasy world of Aden, with players choosing to align themselves with one of three races – human, elf, or dark elf – and one of several classes, such as warrior, mage, or healer. Players can form parties with others to take on quests and engage in combat with various monsters and other players.

The game’s graphics are somewhat dated by modern standards, but still offer a level of detail and visual flair that is impressive given the game’s age. The sound design is also top-notch, with a stirring musical score and well-designed sound effects.

One of the biggest strengths of Lineage 2 is its community, which is passionate and dedicated. The game offers a wide range of social features, such as guilds and player-run events, that help players form lasting friendships and engage in cooperative play.

However, the game’s main weakness is its steep learning curve. New players may find it difficult to navigate the complex game mechanics and systems, and the lack of guidance from the game itself can be frustrating. Additionally, the game’s grind-heavy nature can be a turnoff for some players, as it can take a significant amount of time and effort to progress and acquire new gear.


Minecraft, a sandbox video game developed and published by Mojang Studios, has become one of the most popular games of all time, selling over 200 million copies across all platforms since its first release in 2011.

The core elements of the game are exploration, crafting, and survival. Starting from scratch, players must gather resources, create tools, build structures, and defend themselves against enemy creatures in a blocky environment. The game’s open world allows for almost unlimited creativity, as you can build anything from simple houses to complex machines and sprawling cities.

The game’s graphics are intentionally simple, and the beauty of the retro blocks is mesmerizing and iconic. The sound design is also excellent, with pleasant music and sound effects that help immerse the player in the game world.

Minecraft’s greatest strength lies in its versatility and flexibility. The game’s community has created countless mods and user-generated content, allowing players to customize the game to their liking and add new features and mechanics.

The best free PC games, Steam and more for 2023

The best free PC games, Steam and more for 2023

Here’s a list of the best free games for PC, Steam, Epic Games Store, and more from this year 2023. We’ll explain how and where to play them and more.

You may have seen this article on the Meditation pages and been invited to participate. Still, chances are you’re here because you once idly searched your favorite search engine for “free games” and (if you’re lucky) ended up here. In any case, apart from a greeting, we want to offer you something entirely different. Almost every magazine has articles on the subject (we’ve published several here over the years). It’s a popular topic that always piques the interest and curiosity of a wide range of veteran and novice gamers alike. But most reports of this kind are limited to a more or less long stream of names with descriptions, and that’s about it. Without detracting from the importance of the work done on these materials and their usefulness to thousands of readers, we want to do something different here.

The word “free” does not mean the same thing everywhere.

For those new to the topic and unfamiliar with it, a few basic concepts. First, yes, you can play thousands of games for free (legally) with your computer. But there are different types of “free,” which can be classified by their name: “Free to Play,” “Pay What You Want,” and “Free.” ‘Free to Play’ or ‘F2P’ are games that players can play for free. Still, there are payment options, either to access certain content, unlock characters or skins, or progress more quickly, depending on the game and its model, which players should research before investing much time in it. “Pay What You Want” are voluntarily paid games. Usually indie and experimental, created by developers who are learning, experimenting, or want to start a small and quick project, without all the baggage that is going to market involves; they are entirely free, but if you wish, if you are pleased with the experience or think they deserve it, you can leave them a tip for the work they do. In the third category are “free” or freeware games, free games without more, which can be titles that their creators left for free for whatever reason – seeking fame for future projects, love of art… – or games that were paid for in the past but are now left for free by those in charge to realize that their business cycle is over.

These aren’t the only alternatives that can be played for free on the PC. In the past, something called ‘shareware’ became very popular – codes that were distributed for free with part of the game and left the option to unlock the full game for a fee if the interested party enjoyed the game; classics such as Doom were born as part of this phenomenon. Nowadays, their equivalent is some MMORPGs, such as World of Warcraft or Final Fantasy XIV, which allow you to play for free up to a certain level and then require a monthly fee to continue playing. There are also demos, which a few years ago were very popular even for big productions. However, now their role has diminished – although they are still an exciting alternative for trying out a wide range of modest displays. Finally, there’s the more modern iteration of demos, which are time-limited and include more commercial multiplayer games – one or more of these temporary demos usually appear every weekend on Steam.

The most popular free PC games

These are some of the most played and popular free-to-play games at the moment, the names of which are well known to many but should be kept in mind for new readers who join and want to know the upcoming options.

Fortnite: Battle Royale

A true phenomenon that draws millions of players and viewers every week. Fortnite consists of two parts: Save the World, the original paid concept that is a mix of team shooter and Minecraft, and Battle Royale, the free part (played by the vast majority of users), which is a free-to-play competition between 100 players whose goal is to remain the sole survivor. The lighthearted tone, dynamism, ease of starting the game, and the great flexibility afforded by the build system are some of the features that set this game apart from others. Battle Royale mode, as we said, is free to play with micro-payments of a purely aesthetic nature.

League of Legends

The game sparked MOBA fever, taking advantage of the popularity of the Defense of the Ancients mod for Warcraft III and reimagining its ideas to bring them to a broader audience. A global game was born from this root, with the world and characters continuing to expand conceptually and aesthetically. It’s a challenging game, as you team up with four other players and battle five others, choosing from a wide range of characters with unique abilities, so it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by all the features, details to explore, and the pace of combat. However, once you get into the game, it will keep you engrossed for years to come. It’s free, and you can play for years without paying a single euro, but you will have to accumulate “blue essence” within the game or pay if you want to play with a particular champion. The selection of free champions is constantly changing, and playing with them is pretty functional, but you need time or a quick way to pay to choose.

The selection of free champions is constantly changing, and playing with them is pretty functional, but you need time or a quick way to pay to choose.


Dota 2 and League of Legends are two ample alternatives within MOBA/ARTS, but they are not the only ones. SMITE has managed to carve out a niche by betting on its values, making it a solid and relatively independent alternative. A different camera and control system, more focused on giving the player direct action, provides the game with a distinct identity from the quasi-RTS of the previous two games. It’s also more colorful and spectacular, with massive forces employed by the protagonist gods in combat. The game follows a model similar to LOL, with a “free rotation” that allows us to play for free with part of the squad, and the option to pay to gain direct access to all the characters.

World of Tanks

Another classic, played by millions of users, is Wargaming, which is still as relevant as ever – along with its ‘cousins’ World of Warplanes and World of Warships. This F2P runs on a fast-paced, immediately accessible, and fun formula, with many different types of tanks at our disposal, with which we can compete in intense battles against other players. Also, even though it doesn’t have simulation features, it has a certain appeal for military history buffs, including locations and tanks from World War 2. For the money, you can unlock “premium” tanks, buy equipment and special ammunition that technically give you an advantage over other players, but none of this will give you victory over a veteran player; at least, that’s the theory.


Another F2P game worth trying is a futuristic action game in which we control ‘space cyber ninjas,’ completing single or cooperative missions against AI-driven enemies. We have a variety of classes with different skills, but what sets them apart is the excellent talent that allows us to walk on walls, glide, and perform all sorts of pirouettes to avoid enemies or dodge their attacks, which gives the game a unique spirit compared to other shooters that focus more on shooting. With an exceptionally striking aesthetic and a very significant amount of ever-growing content, Warframe is a great and high-quality game that can keep us entertained for dozens of hours.

Destiny 2

Destiny 2’s transition to a basic F2P model is excellent news for those looking for a quality shooter to play at their leisure. With Bungie’s hallmark of polished and fun action, Destiny 2 offers rich content; an engaging story told at a level you’d expect from AAA, very high production values, and ample opportunity for both single-player and competitive play. If you decide the base experience has won you over, you can purchase the add-ons: Forsaken and Shadowkeep, which do come at a price.


Inspired by Monster Hunter, Dauntless is a F2P alternative game from Capcom, cut to a similar pattern: a group of player-controlled hunters against a large and powerful creature. With each completed hunt, we’ll have more resources to continue advancing and progressing, unlocking different combat styles depending on our equipment. The game also has the advantage of supporting cross-play with almost all systems – including mobile ones soon – so it’s easier to play with a group in any circumstance.

Path of Exile

A game that many believe has managed to dethrone Diablo from the pinnacle of the genre. Path of Exile is a F2P developed by fans of the genre, and it shows. It captures like no other the essence of Diablo II that Blizzard itself missed in its sequel, has a considerable amount of content, a vast development tree, and a payment model that could be considered “fair,” and that doesn’t prevent you from enjoying it without investing a single euro. In addition to the vast amount of content already in the game, Path of Exile 2 is coming in the future, as part of the same game and with a new campaign, also free. A real gem, representing the best of the Free to Play model and a must-buy for ARPG fans.

Star Wars: The Old Republic

In turn, the tenth re-creation of the Star Wars universe, the second attempt to bring it into the realm of permanent worlds, takes us back to the years of the Old Republic and the wars between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire. Bioware was responsible for the practical implementation of what was explored in the two installments of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and was initially responsible for making sure the idea could be realized. Star Wars: The Old Republic allows us to create a character by choosing from several species and visit dozens of planets in custom stories for each of the roles, with companions to dialogue and decisions to make. The free content is very generous, you can play solo without much trouble, and the story retains excellent moments (the only downside is that it’s not translated into Spanish, so you’ll have to know English to enjoy it).


For those looking for a F2P alternative to Overwatch, Paladins is one of the most obvious options. A 5v5 team shooter with multiple game modes, over 40 champions to choose from with their unique abilities, and a friendly enough game system for those who want to play for free – although you can pay to unlock all current and future champions in one go, as well as getting a Season Pass with exclusive resources and skins.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Nearly two decades after Counter-Strike it gained dominance in internet cafes worldwide. The game is still hugely popular thanks to the F2P strategy that has made it the most played game on Steam today, with consistent figures approaching a million simultaneous users. Being such a well-known game, the introductory experience can be challenging and requires patience, time and dedication before you feel like you’re doing anything meaningful. For this, as with any team-based multiplayer game, it’s always best to go with friends. The game is free to play, but by paying, you’ll gain access to matches with other paid users and various extra features in the form of skins and items.


With over 90 million active users, Roblox tends to be less represented on gaming sites than, say, Fortnite (which has the same number of users), probably because of its chaotic nature, which also gives it its charm. Roblox is not one game, but many, infinitely many. It’s a generic engine on which creative people can create their own worlds and games, ranging from small spaces where you can just hang out with friends to ambitious simulators of all kinds. There are all sorts of gambling games, Battle Royales, mini-GTAs, things like (unofficial) Dragon Ball games, and infinite options, although each game can have separate paid options if it has reached certain popularity.

Dungeon Fighter Online

One of the most popular multiplayer games in the world, DFO is a Final Fight or Street of Rage style browser, but with an MMO progression system, making it have a wide range of characters, classes, subclasses, and skills. Its advantage over other F2P MMOs is some immediacy, as the approach is fairly straightforward, and it has quite a long way to go once you start getting into the story. It has a PVP mode, co-op, and a payment system that allows you to get exclusive items, help advance, and get powerful items ahead of players who don’t pay. As is usually the case with games like this, it’s a matter of spending money or patience. It all depends on your priorities. The game is available on Steam, but it’s recommended to use it directly.

Apex Legends

Electronic Arts and Respawn’s F2P is an attempt by the big software giant to keep up with other alternatives in the popular Battle Royale genre. With a more serious and focused approach than Fortnite, Apex is popular with those who want to play a shooter with some substance before the chaotic Epic holiday games. Its payment model focuses on cosmetic items for characters and weapons, loading screens, music, and other items that can be purchased either via battle pass or microtransactions, so it has no competitive advantage over players who don’t want to pay.

Call of Duty: Warzone

The hugely popular Call of Duty has made forays into the Battle Royale world before, but Warzone is the main assault: a completely free-to-play, standalone game with no dependency on buying other games, crossplay between PC, PS4, and Xbox One and 150 players spread across a huge map, but with the distinct spirit of Modern Warfare in its gameplay and staging. A new alternative in the F2P landscape.


The new game from the creators of League of Legends is aiming very high, presenting record figures in its first days. This reformulation of Counter-Strike combined with hero shooter elements represents a return to the tactical and cerebral shooter, with an evident vocation to become a benchmark report that is already free for any player who dares to try its demanding bet.

Rocket League

Rocket League is a sports video game developed and published by Psyonix; first released in 2015, the game has become a fan favorite and has hosted numerous leagues and tournaments.

The core gameplay involves players driving a car equipped with a rocket engine, which they then use to play modified soccer. The game is fast-paced and players can perform impressive tricks and maneuvers to gain an advantage over their opponents.

Graphics are simple but effective, featuring vibrant colors, detailed car models, and well-designed environments. The soundtrack is also top-notch, with fun sound effects that bring the game to life and add excitement.

One of the greatest strengths of Rocket League is its accessibility. It is a simple, low threshold game that can be bought and played immediately, yet it offers a deep and varied gameplay with a high level of skill, advanced techniques, and strategy.

Another key feature of Rocket League is its competitive framework. The game offers a series of different game modes, as well as regular e-sports events and tournaments where players can compete against other players from around the world.

Genshin Impact

Metagame Impact is an action role-playing game with beautiful graphics, an exciting world, and many playable characters. The game is free to play and available to many users. The Gacha system is a constant incentive to keep playing and collecting characters.

The game’s combat system is engaging and allows for various play styles, with each character having unique abilities and item preferences. The open world also offers many opportunities for exploration and adventure, including hidden puzzles, mini-games, and secrets.

However, relying on gacha mechanics can be frustrating for some players who don’t want to spend real money on microtransactions, and the game’s plot and story can also be frustrating. There are also limited multiplayer options, which can be frustrating for players who want more opportunities for interaction.

Heroes of the Storm

Heroes of the Storm isn’t as well known internationally due to Blizzard itself running a big tournament at Blizzcon, but it’s one of the best MOBAs you can play online on PC. As well as MOBA mechanics, Heroes of the Storm has something that makes it unique: it mixes many of its characters and maps them into Nexus.
Diablo, StarCraft, WarCraft, and Overwatch are the games that bring characters to Heroes of the Storm, and they do so in an extraordinary way. And, almost all Blizzard games (except the oldest ones) have that hero importance factor, a character with different skills.

League of Legends

League of Legends, one of the most successful games of recent years and one of the best multiplayer games for the PC, needs no introduction. The MOBA from Riot Games has recently been updated with: the ability to get back hextech chests with all champions for getting S- or more points in the game, changes for lower level players, and changes to various characters new skins coming soon.


Overwatch is Blizzard’s new game that offers hours and hours of multiplayer fun. One of the game’s main attractions is the number of characters on offer and the difference between playing with one or the other, which can make the title seem quite different depending on who we’re playing with.

In addition, the technical side is very carefully crafted, and both the visuals and sound components shine at a high level. Overwatch is also one of the most successful games to date and one of the best online PC games you can enjoy.


Bluehole Studios hasn’t stopped caring about its hit game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, and for a good reason.

The emphasis on teamwork and strategy, along with each character’s unique abilities, gives the game depth and makes it fun. The game is visually appealing and accessible to new players, with vibrant graphics and smooth game mechanics.

However, the game’s microtransaction system may alienate some players, and the need to update the game with new content may make the game repetitive for experienced players. Although there are many different characters, the choice of maps is limited, which can be limiting for players who want variety in their gameplay.

The game also has a lot of fan support: every year a lot of mods that improve the graphics and other aspects of gameplay are released. This adds new emotions to an already familiar world.

The price on Steam is $19.99.

Mafia 3

Mafia 3 is an open-world adventure game set in 1960s New Orleans. Players take on the role of Lincoln Clay, who returns from the Vietnam War to avenge the murder of his foster family by the Italian Mafia.

The story is well written, exploring issues of race, politics, and power in the context of the civil rights movement. The game’s background music and soundtrack also add to the richness of the game world.

However, the gameplay mechanics can be repetitive, as many missions have similar objectives, such as killing gang members and disrupting operations. The lack of non-mission-related activities or side missions can make the game world feel empty.
