- Team Fortress 2
After its release in 2007, Team Fortress 2 was made free-to-play almost 4 years ago. This first person shooter is among the most popular free-to-play games available on Steam to date.

Introduce your kids to Team Fortress 2 to improve their aiming and decision-making skills.
- Candy Tetris

Is your child crazy about Marvel superheroes? Surprise him with this free MMORPG where he gets to control his favorite Marvel characters (Iron Man, Captain America, Wolverine, Deadpool and many others) in a chaotic setting.
