And the award for most improved free-to-play game goes to Warframe. What was once a handful of level tilesets to endlessly grind through is now a proper solar system, featuring two vast open world areas, a Gundam-like suit for dogfighting missions, a hoverboard swapping resource grinding for handrail grinding , a series of AI companions ranging from a mini-Metal Gear to a full-on space wolf and a roster of 66 Warframes to learn and master. It makes Destiny look like a tiddler. Warframe is also a great advert for itself.
In each round of World Of Tanks, small teams of players, each controlling their own tank, rush out from starting positions to do battle across mid-sized maps that alternate open areas and claustrophobic chokepoints.

Myth also happens to be one of Bungie's most successful pre-Halo releases, and shows off the company's range and ability in genres outside of first-person shooters.
A single player mode features an engrossing and enjoyable plot, with you battling the evil and eponymous Fallen Lords, their evil leader, Balor and all manner of undead creatures, but Myth's multiplayer is where it really stands out.
Multiple game modes including King of the Hill, Steal the Bacon and even co-op added huge variety to what was an outstanding and standard-setting game - and it still is. If ever an older game deserved another visit, it's Myth, with a huge, loyal and highly motivated following.

At the same time, you must keep them happy enough to reproduce and rebuild humanity. The game also opts for a cartoonish art style that translates the signature Vault Boy into a charming — and borderline creepy — family of diligent vault-dwellers. Well, that and radroaches. Taking down a series of enemies with headshots feels great, as does getting to use your well-earned kill-streak rewards to drop a turret down or send a missile plummeting toward Earth.
