  1. Hello there, fellow Empire Minecraftians! It seems like every once in a while, we all hit Minecraft block. And in that case, what do we play until our creative batteries recharge? I decided to make a list.

    Sandbox

    Now this is an interesting one. A whole world that you can interact with directly. Ride dirt bikes, run, climb things, play sports, and more!

    Simulation

    The solar system is your only limit in this game. This spaceflight sim has realistic physics, showing you what spaceflight is really like in the past, the present, and even the future. But beware of the steep learning curve!

    But the community is vital in this little project, as I don't know every great game! So here's an application form to submit a game for the list. Remember, the game must be FREE. There, maybe they'll read that now. Freemium is also allowed, though it'll be in a seperate spoiler.

    100% free or freemium:

  3. Is this list just for full PC and console games, or are flash games and browser MMOs also allowed?
  4. I feel like bumping this cus I'm bored
  5. Browser MMOs, yes. Flash games just feel like a low-quality type to me. There are exceptions, but most flash games are like this.
