The Free Agent returns from PAX Prime with his top 3 F2P picks from the show floor
Hello and welcome to the 10th episode of the Free Agent. To celebrate we have a special PAX Prime Edition in store for you today. The Free Agent spent the long weekend scouring show floor for free-to-play games. From the blazing lights and soaring banners of the Wargaming booth to shadowy corners full of Indie games, the Free Agent asked the question, "Can gaming REALLY be free?"
With only ten episodes under our belt it's too early to truly answer that question, but I'm happy to report that there are some very promising prospects in store for us. So read on as ZAM.com and the Free Agent bring you our Top 3 Most Anticipated Free-to-Play games from PAX Prime 2013.

In a tumultuous sea of free-to-play titles all vying for my attention, I did what any mere mortal would do; I went straight to the Oculus Rift booth and tried out their VR headset peripheral to escape from the craziness of the show floor.
During the demo, which was not nearly long enough, I plummeted off the side of a building in an armored mech and nearly lost my lunch from the experience. I'd never been so uncontrollably blissful and nauseous at the same time. As my mind surrendered my stomach to this virtual reality, I couldn't help but see a whole new world of gaming on the horizon.
With thoughts of what could be running through my head, I steeled my resolve and returned to the roaring reality of the crowded PAX show floor, more determined than ever to see past the blinding lights and find authentic gaming experiences to share with my readers.
In short I have done my very best to not just bring you a boat load of hype and PR jargon, but rather share with you the free-to-play titles that I am truly excited to experience in the weeks and months ahead.
So here it is, the Free Agent's most anticipated free-to-play titles of PAX Prime 2013:
