Craig Pearson at PC Gamer writes:Team Fortress 2 is the best game I’ve ever played. Over the last three and a half years I’ve clocked up 666 hours on Badwater and Dustbowl. I’ve stabbed, shot, cloaked, crafted, traded and unlocked my way to a backpack full of awesome weapons and hats. Where Team Fortress 2 is now, with its ridiculous weapons, headgear and recipes, is a long way from the lean multiplayer shooter it launched as.
And now it’s free. Imagine people on servers freezing at the news: the Red Scout’s fish flopping in his hand, the Blu Soldier raising his frying pan, about to crown a Pyro before stopping and looking around. All this? Free? Really?
