Video Games The NPF Legal Free Games Masterlist.

Ok, so the point of this thread is to compose a masterlist of legal free games. Post a link to a free game and a brief description and I'll add it to the list, so if any bored NPF users are browsing at work or something and want some free time wasters to play they can just look here. I'll start!
(No trials at all please, no matter how cool). One more thing, if you post a game, please specify if it will work with Macs, if possible. It'll be really helpful. Gotta think of those on Macs. Thanks. SECOND LIST ON PAGE 7

Action/Adventure.
ABA Games. Collection of freeware shmups. Some are quite gimmicky but everyone needs to play Torus Trooper.
Every Extend.
Recently remade for the PSP, this is the original. Still fun with pumping trance music and addictive gameplay.
Cave Story. Side-scrolling shooter/exploration game with RPG elements, purty old-school sprites, and a right decent story. It's pretty long for a free game as well. I recommend using a gamepad. Submitted by Phil_ MAC COMPATIBLE.
Sonic Robo Blast 2 Made using the Doom Legacy engine as a base and then ripping out all its innards and making it more platformer friendly plus adding a nice sense of speed to it all makes this sadly better then any of the offical 3D Sonic games made..
Not to mention you can play online in Co-Op, Race, CTF, Deathmatch, and Tag. Submitted by Kroze Gamegod.
Warning Forever - Addictive little twitch shm'up, just an endless series of bosses, who evolve depending upon how you attack the previous one. Great fun. Very addictive. Submitted by Bravefencer Shinryu.
Eternal Daughter - (Scroll to the bottom) Another entry into the Metroid-type gameplay genre, this game is excellent. Beware, though, it is very hard, but not in the mean and cruel way, in the punish you for your mistakes way.
Grand Theft Auto 1 & 2 are now freeware, downloadable from the Rockstar site (you have to give details but they don't spam you) here: http://www.rockstargames.com/classics/ Submitted by Babybahamut.
Knytt. Monkey/cat thing gets abducted by an alien whose UFO proceeds to crash. It's your job to find the pieces of the UFO so you can go home. Won't take anyone long to beat but it's got a great atmosphere, minimal but good graphics and fun for anyone into Metroid-lite games.
Marathon. A trio of FPSes from Bungie, the makers of Halo. Full of kick-ass action, with intricate puzzles as well as plot so rich in detail that it spawned a cult following.
Everything you need can be found here. Download a scenario ("Marathon" is the first), then download the appropriate version of Aleph One (a more recent version than on this page can be found here). That's all you need. Install as shown and you're good to go. HighRes texture packs found there are optional but definitely make the game look much better than without. Go for it. Submitted by Iymerion
Electric Bird. Odd shooter which sees you play as an electric bird, shooting blocks and weird shape things. Nice presentation and smooth framerate. Open source too. I think.
Also the F.E.A.R. Multiplayer is a completly free Download. You can get it here. Submitted by EVILness.
http://www.acid-play.com/download/soldat/
My god, its an addicting 2d shooter. You have to pay for the original mode, but if you download this mod
http://browse.files.filefront.com/So...owsefiles.html
you can play single player for free. Submitted by CluelessDictator.
Liero Xtreme. Liero Xtreme is sort of like Worms, except completely different because it is not turn-based and it is definitely not a strategy game, and you use one character (not a team). So basically it is a third person fragfest with wacky weapons, for example, there is a weapon in the game called "Foot of Gork". You customize the weapon drop rate and health, there are many stages and weapon sets (from Star Trek stuff to food), and there is a bunch of DLC to keep the game fresh. Also there is LAN and online play (though I have never tried the online multiplayer. Submitted by Bananarama.
Tyrian 2000, one of the best PC Schm'ups ever made, released as freeware a couple of years back. At the bottom of the article there are links to a couple of download sites. Submitted by Bravefencer Shinryu.
http://www.americasarmy.com/
a free complete multiplayer fps developed and updated by the US army. Submitted by vgplayer101
Gunroar- Schmup with impressive graphics, that deals with boats. Many ways to play, and a real good time. Submitted by Donomni.
Diabolika II, a fun little puzzle game. Easy to learn, hard to master. Submitted by Bravefencer Shinryu.
N.
Awesome ninja jump n' run game. Submitted by Mr. Bookworm.
http://www.agdinteractive.com The remakes of King's Quest 1 and 2 can be downloaded here, along with a special parody game. These are Adventure or Puzzle games similar to Monkey Island or Deja Vu or various other titles. These remakes have a point and click interface and enhanced graphics like the later games in the series. Submitted by Magus.
Meritous. It's an odd combination of Zelda style dungeon crawler and bullet hell shmup. You attack with a circular wave which not only hurts enemies but nullifies bullets too, which is essential since enemies from the beginning shoot tons of bullets at you. The wave is chargeable, but the longer you charge it for the longer you're without it. Your character can be upgraded to have a shield, stronger wave and shorter charging/cooldown time. It's a challenging game.
Within A Deep Forest (WADF)
WADF is a 2-D side scrolling platform/puzzle/adventure game created using Multimedia Fusion. Where you take control of a scientfic experiment (which coincidently happens to be a bouncing ball) that has the task of defusing a bomb that threatens the earth. Key strengths of this game include refreshing puzzles, atmospheric gameplay, and a healthy length of playing. If you have played the game 'Knytt', you will probably also enjoy this game. Submitted by Coral.
Typhoon 2001, a clone inspired by Tempest and Tempest 2000. Addictive to the highest degree. Submitted by Bravefencer Shinryu.
Blue Wish Resurrection. It's an awesome, completely free Bullet Hell SHUMP. Difficult, but in an awesome way. Good soundtrack, and some unlockables, including a true final boss that I'm willing to bet noone here will be able to even get to legitimately, as you need to beat the rest of the game on hell mode (the hardest difficulty) without using a continue. It even has decent sprite-based graphics, but you'll be so busy dodging bullets you won't really notice :p Submitted by Magish.


Strategy
Wesnoth. A fun turn based strategy game with a little RPG mixed in. When your units level up, theres a VERY noticable difference in them. Submitted by B_real_shadows.
Dofus Arena. You could say this is an online Final Fantasy Tactics. Gimme a fight! *Free for now, although as soon as it's not free it'll be removed from this list.rl=http://www.gamershell.com/download_11942.shtml]SWINE.[/url] A quirky little RTS where you choose one of two factions, Pigs or Rabbits. Actually used to be a retail game, but the company went under so they made it free. Submitted by EVILness.
War Rock - Think a free Battlefield 2. I've seen it played, not the most cutting graphics, but it could kill an afternoon online. They offer a one time fee to upgrade your account to a premium, but from what I see almost everything works without the premium. Submitted by EVILness.
Savage: The Battle for Newerth - A FPS with RTS elements. Its very hard to explain... If you are the commander you play a RTS, if you are a soldier you play a FPS. Just play it and go see for yourself. Submitted by EVILness.
Stargate Online.
Woah there fanboys, it's a browser based strategy game, at its young days. The people behind it are still working on it, but it seems to be interesting & all. I've got an account running there, called Marn. (duh). Submitted by Marn.
http://www.freeallegiance.org
MMO Squad based space combat sim (not to heavy on the sim) with elements of RTS. Although that hardly does it justice. Worst learning curve ever, but worth it. Submitted by terren.
Used to require portforwarding setup, but that issue is resolved.
Vantage Master Online
A downloaded, fun strategy game where you, a Master, summon Natials to fight against the opposing Master and his Natials. Has a single player mode with killer difficulty, and online play for going head to head with other guys. Submitted by loyal2nes.
T R E M U L O U S is the only game that I really waste my time with these days. It's a standalone FPS+RTS combination (think Savage, but without the "commander" aspect) based on a modified Q3 engine. It's a very standard aliens vs. human marines setting, but both teams are radically different, and having a good builder can make or break your team. The learning curve can be steep, but it's worth checking out if your the type that enjoys a well-thought out FPS.
Also, it's only officially supported for Linux and Windows, though an unnofficial Mac version can be found, provided you're diligent enough to get to it. Submitted by Seffy.
Spacewarz. Submitted by Hawk.
Utopia and Earth: 2025. Two of the oldest and best free online games ever made by good ol' Mehul Patel. Submitted by PraetorZorak.

MMO
Shot-Online - A free online golf MMO. Don't look at me that way. Golf games are a lot more fun to play than watching it. Trust me. Submitted by Bravefencer Shinryu.
Albatross 18: Realms of PangYa - Another free online golf MMO, this one takes a more whimsical approach to the sport. Submitted by Bravefencer Shinryu.
Maple Story. Free cutesy Korean (I think) MMO. Site requires IE or IE Tab to access. Submitted by CluelessDictator.
Runescape. Java based browser MMO. Submitted by xravi.
Exteel.A fast paced, online mech shooter that looks like something from gundam, with fully pimpable mechs. is free, and beta signup is now available (albeit I have yet to recieve my confirmation email from a while ago) and althouhg there are micropayemnts, they are only for godly parts. Submitted by Lord Of Joshelplex.

Sindome. Text based MMO thing. Submitted by Eldezar.
DJ Max Online. DJ Max Online is an online Beatmania clone. You can play songs and level up on your own or you can DJ Battle with other players and see who's the best psuedo-DJ. Site is in Japanese so you'll need to follow this guide to get on.

RPG

Sryth. It's a fun text game, like the gamebooks of old, set in a wold of magic and such. It's constantly being updated, and it's fun to play if you have the patience to read it. Submitted by Steel Shadow.

TES arena, the original elder scrolls game, now free to download. Submitted by vgplayer101

http://www.nethack.org/ -- the main site. Downloads for Linux, UNIX, Windows, OSX and Mac Classic, among other things, as well as source code. Available (for most platforms) in both top-down tty (ASCII art) and top-down tile graphics flavours. Submitted by ToxicFrog.
http://slashem.sourceforge.net/ -- SLASH'EM, Super Lotsa Added Stuff Hack - Extended Magic, is a Nethack variant that adds more stuff - more areas, more classes, more races, more items, more enemies, more objectives, more abilities, more spells, and more difficulty. Submitted by ToxicFrog.
http://www.darkarts.co.za/projects/vultures/ -- Vulture's Eye and Vulture's Claw, high-quality isometric-graphics versions of Nethack (Eye) and SLASH'EM (Claw) with full mouse support. Linux and Windows binaries, source code might build under OSX. Submitted by ToxicFrog.

Misc
StepMania - THE Freeware DDR-esque game. Tons of plug-ins and fucktons of songs/stepfiles, this game will give you a lot to do, even if you only play with your keyboard. Submitted by Bravefencer Shinryu.
Cloud. Basically Katamari Damarcy with clouds. Gather clouds then make shapes and stuff with them. Quirky, great art and an awesome soundtrack.
Frets On Fire.It's a Guitar Hero clone that you play by holding the keyboard like a guitar, using Enter as your pick and F!-F5 as the frets. There's only three songs to start with but you can download new ones and make your own. Submitted by Babybahamut.
Granspope Frial. Simple, stylish game in which you guide a bird through a course hitting bars which accellerate(sp) you.
Guitar Shred Show. Use your keyboard as a guitar and SHRED! Not a Guitar Hero clone btw, more of a sandbox game.
Fraxy. Shmup like game where you can create your own bosses. Submitted by DeadPhoenix.

Most of this applies to SLASH'EM as well, and some of it is SLASH'EM specific. Note that since nethack is randomly generated, much of this is in the form of general techniques - for example, it can't tell you where the Oracle is, but how to recognize it when you find it; it can't tell you what a blue potion does, but how to find out for yourself - without meeting an untimely end if it happens to be Sickness or Paralysis.

I wouldn't be a true fan if I didn't mention Cave Story. Side-scrolling shooter/exploration game with RPG elements, purty old-school sprites, and a right decent story. It's pretty long for a free game as well. I recommend using a gamepad.

I shall now show you all the wonder that is a GOOD Sonic game in 3D!
Impossible you ask?
Well, just take a look at this baby:

Sonic Robo Blast 2

Made using the Doom Legacy engine as a base and then ripping out all its innards and making it more platformer friendly plus adding a nice sense of speed to it all makes this sadly better then any of the offical 3D Sonic games made..
Not to mention you can play online in Co-Op, Race, CTF, Deathmatch, and Tag.
Also, even though the main thing right now only has 3 Zones in it, people in the community have made some damn good level packs like Mystic Realm which is a full add on with over 7 Zones and tons of secrets and two smaller level packs Acid Missile and Chaos Zone each with three Zones in them make this game amazing.
Best part? Its ALL FREE!!

Now if only Sega would make their new Sonic games this good they might not be in the slump they are currently in.
