I suggest you look at the categories and post your suggestions here. Please understand that the list does not include outdated or otherwise redundant software. No links to any abandoned software that still has an owner with lawyers. For example, the free distribution of old XSI tools was limited time only and is no longer legally available (Yes they check every once in a while and send their dogs after some people).

Hi V3rd3. Yes, I know what you mean. In 2013 Shade3D released a free "Shade 3D for Unity", but it was free just for a year. I will only suggest current free softwares. The problem are the categories. I think that Lego modeling, or sculpt or voxel or CAD modeling shouldn't be all joined together in the same list. Also there are different groups by Easy/Average/Hard skill, but I am not very agree with that difference. Has Dust3D an Average difficulty? Really? Or is Hexagon an Easy software? Easier than Xismo? I don't think so.
Also Unicorn3D is a icon creator, not a 3D modeling software (although you can do animated 3D objects for your icons).
I would start by suggesting some known free 3D softwares like Clara.io or Rocket 3F. And CopperCube is missing on the free 3D game engine list (I am not going to tell whether it's easy, average or hard. Technically it's easy because you don't need to know code language, but I'm not sure how difficult it is creating the scene and other stuff. Easy/average/hard is very subjective, I guess).

The ratings are subjective for sure in that Cellulo is the one maintaining the list. I think he does a pretty good job. Make your suggestions here as I am sure cellulo would look at what you offer and would gladly add anything he thinks would be beneficial. It is nice to see your interest in the information.

Hi! Yes, I'm interested in free 3D softwares. I want to do tutorials of every software (and at the same time, doing 3D objects for a videogame). Cellulo has made a good job. I have to talk with him. Btw, I've made some suggestions but the page is not updated yet. Stay great!

Noticed you had Protrekkr on the list...

It's currently updated to version 2.6.3 very recent...

I have entire large thread where I have shared over 1,200 Instruments as well as tips, 303 patterns, etc...

Highly recommended Tracker that is fully self-contained...No need for VSTs or other distractions...

Sounds just fine...Here's current WIP-
