A list of 20 great free games:

 

http://www.extremete...t-free-pc-games

Lots of MOBAs and a some demos in that list, but I can comment on a few of those:
First off, Path of Exile is easily the best free title in that lot.   Amazing Diablo-like game, the free to play model is so fair that I literally couldn't figure out what to buy just to pass a few bucks to the game.   Amazing game, lots of fun.
Warframe is really neat too.  Co-op type FPS game with unique suits to buy and unlock.   For free you get enough to have fun with, and you don't have to spend a lot to buy another suit to try out.  Each suit has its own weapons and abilities.  The graphics are awesome and unique too.
Star Wars the Old Republic is an MMO that has a questionable free to play model.   Very penalizing towards free players.   That said, you could just play though the story pretty much single player and enjoy the game.   The writing is top notch, and there are plenty of nods to Knights of the Old Republic.
Neverwinter is an Dungeons and Dragons MMO, so I can't really tell you why I didn't like it, but I didn't.   
War Thunder is very similar to World of Tanks that I mentioned earlier.   It does flying better than World of Warplanes, but the tank aspect is lacking in my opinion.  I prefer world of tanks.
Marvel Heroes is an excellent MMO.  I spent very little and had a great time.  I think I paid to unlock the Punisher as a character and that was bout it.   Lots of fun, cool story, not too terribly deep.
Alien Swarm is fun if you have a group of 4 players to play together.   It's rather short as far as the campaign goes, but its totally free.

Set your calendars my Atari friends.  September 14th marks the day PC gamers can pick up The Crew from UBI Soft through their UPlay front end.  Thought I would give heads up.

I managed to get it.  Fun game but can be a bit difficult to grasp for those more familiar with SimCity games.
