Xonotic

A direct successor of the Nexuiz Project, Xonotic is a free, open source (GPL) shooter game that serves as the updated and much improved version of the former. After internal disagreements plagued the Nexuiz Project, several developers took a stand and vowed to remake the game from scratch. Creating one that's even better and ensuring that it'll remain free with an open source license. The game was created by a team of "players, developers, and artists who enjoy learning and refining their skills through contribution and collaboration with other players from around the globe." Thanks to this effort, this forked version features much of what gamers could hope for. With stunning graphics, engaging gameplay, great maps and a host of other features; Xonotic is slowly shaping up to becoming an excellent game.

Gekkeiju Online

Can't get enough of MMORPG games? Then here's another one you can sink your teeth into, Gekkeiju Online. This game is absolutely free so you can go ahead and waste plenty of time playing with other gamers online. Before going for the dive though, it would be helpful to know that the game is not exactly considered by its makers as MMO. Unlike most commercial online RPGs that are fully finished once it is released, Gekkeiju is still a work in progress. The game is constantly updated and treated as an "independent project" by its makers. Like most rpg games, there are several characters you can choose from, nine to be exact. Each of these will have their pros and cons so it's up to you to make your character work for you.
