Minecraft is developed under Mojang. One of the most interesting points of the game is the application's freedom. The game is very simple and has minimal graphics.

Users can also work with a range of blocks such as diamonds, gold, stone and wood. This exercises a person's creativity.

Half-Life 2

This is also a first person shooter game. The game has been part of many best games lists. Half-Life 2 features a dystopian alternate history where races compete. "The Combine," a multidimensional empire, harvests the Earth's resources. Users play as Gordon Freeman. The character serves as the savior and the leader of the "Lambda Resistance."
