Wolfenstein: The New Order is free to keep right now
ORIGINAL SOURCE LINK
Wolfenstein: The New Order rebooted the classic FPS series back in 2014, turning it into a tonally incoherent, ultra-violent sometime-stealth ’em up about murdering robo-Nazis in an alternate 1960s. It was surprisingly great. It’s also free to keep if you grab it from the Epic Games Store right now.
If you already own and have played Wolfenstein: The New Order, then please instead enjoy this wonderful video from Marsh Davies’ Fail Forward series:

I think Alec summed up the appeal of The New Order pretty well in his review:
I think it works because, for all the oddness of being both a dumb as a box of hammers game and a Feel The Feels can we have an award now please game, Wolfenstein: The New Sequel knows itself very well. It borrows from BioShock and it borrows from Half-Life 2 (to put it mildly), but I don’t believe it truly has aspirations to be more than Expensive B-Movie With A Heart. There’s, oddly, an honesty to it – it’s not like BioShock Infinite, where the fancy talk sat uncomfortably alongside the meatheaded mayhem. Yes, this takes itself and its magical robot Nazis entirely seriously, but that’s not the same thing as believing itself to be capital-I Important.
If that sounds like your thing, grab it now.
