For those of you who may be too poor to afford the latest AAA titles, or just don't want to support policies like micro-transactions and "If you're offended, just don't buy it", there are many open-source and/or free games that can tide you over. Some of my favorites are:
- FreeCiv: A civilization building game based on Sid Meier's Civilization 1 and 2
- OpenTTD: A transport network building game based off of Chris Sawyer's Transport Tycoon Deluxe
- Dwarf Fortress: Not Open-Source - fortress colony management simulator with an additional RPG gamemode
Do you guys have any other free, possibly open-source games that you would recommend?
