Steam gets free-to-play section.
 
Free-to-Play games are available to download for free and can be played without a subscription or a credit card. Your Steam wallet allows you to purchase items and content in-game to customize your game-play.

http://store.steampowered.com/genre/Free%20to%20Play/

Has anybody ever played any of the games listed? ... What are they like? Any good?

lol I thought this would be like the GamersGate's upcoming free to play games that are supported by ads. Instead it's just crappy free2play games :P

Yeah its F2P so you'll need to use their clients' logon program.

Also I've been reading about this and hear it suffers from terrible netcode and its something that has been an issue since the game was in beta.
It seems like the Dev is looking for cash rather than trying to fix the issues the community (on their forums) has been complaining about.

Yep, and there has been a huge update tonight as well, with lot's of new weapons.

I'm not too happy about it being a Free 2 Play game. I paid for it, but that was a long time ago. What bothers me is all the new players, and how the game is going to change because of that.

The game is going to be funded now SOLELY based on in-game store item purchases...which means something will soon change with how items are found. We'll probably find less of them, maybe none at all, forcing people to pay for items in the future that will probably give them an advantage.

I see tragedy for TF2 in the future. :(

They said nothing will change. Players that payed get more features. The drops will remain the same.
