5. Dota 2:
If you like realtime strategic games then you will love DotA 2. Strategic games can be a bit difficult for first-timers but DotA 2 has some wonderful and comprehensive tutorials that help you master the gameplay fairly easily. You play as a team of 5 players against a team of 5 other players and your objective is to destroy the Ancient of the enemy team. It might sound easy at first but its really a difficult game. You must play as a team and your actions must be coherent. A good thing about DotA 2 is that it is free.
