I tried it way back in beta, it didn't grab me, probably because around that time I started playing Rusty Hearts
with friends. I've come back to it recently and it's a lot of fun! It's pretty much the only MMORPG that actually has the same feel and speed as a proper high-action brawler like Devil May Cry or Bayonetta. Very grindy, though, and their implementation of the F2P model is a little cash-grabby for my taste (like all Nexon games.) The Source engine is looking awful dated these days, too. Still, I'm having fun. For someone like me who plays MMORPGs for dress-up as much as the actual gameplay, it's frustrating to be too poor to buy clothes when there are so many cute & sexy clothes in the game.
Of course, I'm still playing Blacklight: Retribution
, my mainstays. I also found a fondness for Risk of Rain
and Red Dead Redemption
lately, although I'm almost done with RoR.

Dota is like League of Legends? Do any of you play?
I used to play a lot of LoL. DOTA is the progenitor of the form, of course; I'm sure you meant DOTA 2, which retains the merciless learning curve of the original game. I really don't recommend DOTA 2 unless you are pretty good at League and want a less refined experience that is more hostile to newcomers. The community in League is bad, too, but the community in DOTA 2 is a whole order of magnitude worse. It really is that bad; I'd almost rather play on Xbox Live
, and that should tell you something.
Fair warning, though. Steam apparently does have a "free" version. I tried to play TF2 with someone right after it went free to play and I couldn't even add him as a friend. Might not be a real issue, but it was annoying.
Strange bug you had. Steam is always free. Anyone can download it and make an account for free. You just had some error; it had nothing to do with TF2 or the free to play change. There are tons of pure free-to-play and just straight-up free
games on Steam. I know people who play games on Steam every day without actually owning any
games on Steam; just using it as a social platform and launcher for F2P games.
