Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) was already one of the most-played games on Steam despite being six-years-old, but developer Valve has now made the award-winning shooter free-to-play. Such generosity is often reserved for Christmas time (or the Steam Winter Sale), so count yourselves lucky, ya hear?

This isn’t a stripped down version of the game, either. Apart from missing some advanced matchmaking features and premium items for sale, you’re getting the full CS: GO package. Just don’t come crying to us when you’re left feeling shortchanged in a gunfight.
