    All episodic games need to come off of this list. I know the site treats later episodes like DLC, but they are really part of the main game and cost money. The free "episode one" is incentive to get you hooked, not a game by itself.

    I said this last time this list was posted. Please correct the time for Paladins. The original 1000g is obtainable in a smaller amount of time than you have listed. But the 205g is an extreme grind. Should be changed to 200+ hours. Unless you plan on spending some serious cash on the game.

    Thanks for this, but would be more convenient if TA was also listed in a column.

    It’s still counts as a free game for stats

    Just a suggestion. This should be a permanent tab inside the 'Main Menu' so people can check on the free stuff & dlc anytime.

    You can do news articles when there's new free stuff as a form of 'heads up' which is useful, such as Battlefield 1 dlc free till 31st October, but there should be a default 'free content' tab broken down in the 360 & One categories.

    The trolls will moan anyway, whatever you do. But it would be useful to have the categories where they can be found without looking for articles.
    It always has been in the main menu. It's also on the side shown in the below screenshot (as it's shown) in a lot of articles about sales or deals

    There is no way on earth you can complete Fallout Shelter in less than 100 hours for free unless you are VERY VERY VERY lucky with legendary dwellers in lunchboxes.
    Agreed. According to my Xbox I have 6D 1H 22M played. I've got 2 of 20 legendary dwellers (one was in my first lunchbox opened and one from a quest) yet I've opened probably somewhere between 50-100 lunch boxes which don't come that easily without paying

    Last time I tried the first episode of Batman: Enemy Within, Minecraft Story Mode: Season 2, Guardians of the Galaxy and Walking Dead: A New Frontier but none of them unlocked achievements.

    Is it possible to unlock achievements now?

    I'm guessing that if you did a list of "Games you couldn't pay gamers to play", 90% of this list would show up on that list lol
    My thinking exactly, keep free to play on the cell phones ffs

    Good luck trying to get the achievements in Onigiri. I played it for hundreds of hours and have about 200 gamerscore. They just make them so impossible, which is a pity cos i love the game's atmosphere and find it a fun world to be in.

    The F2P model works great for a lot of games. If you don't like them, don't play them. Pretty simple.

    I fully agree with this. In all honesty I've probably played f2p games more in the last 5 years than anything else. Not because they're free either, because the developers take the time to keep them updated and interesting. Yes it's so they hold their player base and make more money, but before anyone complains about that why the hell do you think any game is made? Yes some developers love what they do, but you better understand they couldn't do it without your money.

    You can install the game on PC. Install TinyTask too.
    Create a macro changing the date on the PC 7 days ahead, getting the free lunchbox and setting the date back.
    Set the computer to execute the macro constantly (XXX times, or all night long).
    Open your free load of lunchboxes until you get your 20 Legendary Dwellers.

    That's not true at all. There's no way they'd make you have a year's playtime.

    Out of all the “first episode of an episodic game” entries on this list I have to say that Tales From The Borderlands is the one everyone should at least give a shot. It’s truly great. While I am a huge Borderlands fan you really don’t have to be to appreciate the world of the story. The Borderlands world is simply a parody of recognizable, real world issues and situations (e.g. the soulless corporation that neither respects its cutsomers nor its employees, the megalomaniac boss, income inequality, etc.). With that said it’s a humorous story set in a dystopia rather than a dystopian story.

    Definitely consider trying Tales From The Borderlands and purchasing the season pass if you like it.

    Tales was the first Borderlands game I played. I start the first one as a result. It’s hilarious.

    Not sure if it still is, but Playerunknown's Battlegrounds was free a few days back.
