While most people consider 13 to be an unlucky number, we here at Ten Ton Hammer don't happen to agree, at least for this week. You see this marks the thirteenth week our free-to-play feature column - Microcosms, has been published. To celebrate, our own Jason "Medawky" Bolton is grabbing his black cat, stepping on a crack under a wide open ladder and throwing caution to the wind as he looks at 13 of the top games in the segment as determined by our fan interest indicator, The Pulse.
Since the inception of this weekly foray into the world of free-to-play gaming I have wanted to find a way to get more in-depth with the top ten lists, and while I have begun to spotlight some of the older games that frequent the list, something tends to pop up each week that puts the idea on the back burner. One of the drawbacks to doing the expanded list is that more than 10 games are regulars in the column and it’s always difficult to exclude a title because it may have dipped slightly in popularity on a given week. Luckily for me the answer to my dilemma presented itself when I was going over content ideas for this 13th installment, if I expand the list to 13 titles I could hit most of the major players and lessen my feelings of neglect
