If you're looking to kick off the week with a free game, Electronic Arts has the great tower defense epic Plants vs. Zombies Game of the Year Edition up for grabs on Origin.
Plants vs Zombies is a story about a horde of cartoonish undead with an unusual fixation on eating the brains of one particular suburban homeowner, who is protected from that grisly fate only by the plants in his garden. It's a bizarre setup but it works brilliantly, and despite its obviously casual, 'games-for-kids' styling, it made a huge splash with mainstream gamers when it was new. It's now eight years old (kind of hard to believe) but remains, with all due respect to Bejeweled, Popcap's crowning achievement.
If you missed out on it, this is an easy opportunity to find out what all the fuss is about.
