I am looking for an HD screen recorder that is free and that may record gameplay of games. Respond with legit answers only.

I don't think there are any great free recorders. Fraps is by far the best imo, which offers a limited free version.

Well, there used to be WeGame if I remember right (the memory being that it was free without limitations), but all download links even on its own site are down, and even if you do manage to find a link, it won't run because it's forced to search for updates, which it won't find.

There are some semi-decent ones you can still get for free, though.

  • Hypercam 2 is free, but you'll be stuck recording in windowed mode, and you'd have to use your microphone to record voice and game audio from your speakers at the same time.
  • Xsplit's free mode can work reasonably well for local recording, but will only record in lossy quality and with a horrendous audio codec. Windowed mode will be forced as well.
  • OpenBroadcaster would probably be the best. It only records in a lossy format (H.264 + AAC or MP3), but will record microphone and game audio at the same time without issue (though it'll be in the same audio track), and has "game source" capturing as an upcoming feature.

If you have dvd player with the correct video inputs and dvdrw support, you can record your footage to the disc. Another good device for recording videos is Hauppauge pvr. It is $100 on amazon but I heard it really works well and it can support hdmi input.

To get true HD PC recording you need to first set the video resolution to something like 1280 x 720 or 1920 x 1080 and then record that. 

However, doing so is never going to be cheap. Getting great quality video will always cost you.  If you don't mind spending a little FRAPS and Dxtory are great programs.  I personally don't have much experience with Bandicam so I can't talk about it, but if you are really on that tight of a budget and still really want to make videos I guess that would be your only option.
