Free-to-play games have boomed to unprecedented levels of quality over the past couple of years. It’s hardly even a gamble that starting one will be time well spent at this point — it’s just a matter of deciding which game is the most worthy of sinking a boatload of hours into. Whether you’re a MOBA fan, an MMO connoisseur, or an FPS master, there’s something out there for everyone, all at the low, low price of … well, free.

As exciting as it is to venture through nature’s toughest terrains in a high-octane action-adventure title or exploring uncharted territories in open-world RPGs, nothing quite thrills like immersing yourself in a competitive multiplayer match. Win or lose, each round is a blood-pumper, and MOBAs have become the poster children of some of the most intense gaming sessions around.

The best puzzle games are ones that are easy to learn but difficult to master. Sure, anyone can beat a level of Peggle, but can they do it with only four balls? How about just one? Angry Birds allows progress by popping all the pigs, but those who really want to show the world their skills need to do it with the least amount of resources used.

Completely new intellectual properties are a rarity these days. New ones starring female lead characters are even rarer. Thanks to Capcom picking up publishing duties, Remember Me from French developer DONTNOD Entertainment will be making its way to the United States on June 4. In addition to satisfying both of those criteria, It also looks like a great action title with some interesting ideas, so Jean-Maxime Moris, co-founder and creative director of DONTNOD Entertainment was gracious enough to answer the questions we had about the dynamics of crafting a female-led title and how the game's "memory" theme applies to gameplay.

GC Reader of the Week: Gaia Steinbuch

GC Reader of the Week - Gaia Steinbuch

Who are you?
I'm Gaia Steinbuch.

What kind of gamer are you?
I'm interested in lots of different types of games—but my favourite genre would have to be role-playing games (RPGs) and older real-time strategy games (RTSs). I mostly play single player games (I like a game with a good story), sometimes co-op with my boyfriend. I never play multiplayer with strangers, it doesn't appeal to me. I prefer to play games in shorter periods of times because I get tired easily. I play most of my games on the PC but I also own a PS3, Wii and DS on which I game now and then.
