Garry's Mod

Garry's Mod 11 (Source 2007)
Garry's mod allows people to play around with valve's physics engine, to spawn props and construct weird devices. The game features several default levels for Gmod, and can be extended by other valve games, such as half-life (1 and 2), the episodes and for instance portal and TF2.
There are several game modes available, the default being sandbox, but possibilities include Zombie Survival (scary), Space build, where one builds a spacecraft to conquer planets, and Build to the Top (an external map) which is great fun in multiplayer.

Additional Comments

The game will crash if: a player dies from being hit by a physical prop an NPC dies from being hit by a physical prop You can work around the former by using The Q menu does not work properly, and you aren't able to move the mouse around while it's open. To work around this, you can make a new config file with the name qmenufix.cfg in your steamapps//garrysmod/garrysmod/cfg directory. the contents of qmenufix.cfg should be: alias showmenu "+menu; bind q hidemenu" alias hidemenu "-menu; bind q showmenu" bind q showmenu alias showcontext "+menu_context; bind c hidecontext" alias hidecontext "-menu_context; bind c showcontext" bind c showcontext save it, and right-click on gmod in steam. click properties -> set launch options. add "+exec qmenufix.cfg" (without quotes) to the end of the line. click ok, and run gmod.
