    There seems to be plenty of free PC games out there. Some of those free titles are surprisingly fun and their quality/content surpasses that of those titles that be found on the retail shelves. So, in this thread post any PC games that you think belong in that free-and-great category. Please include a few mini-screenshots and a short description for the sake of our ADHD afflicted members.


    Here is a title to get things started:

    Ferrari Virtual Race

    You get to drive/race several Ferrari vehicles. The game is pretty nice looking, for a free game that is. Can be downloaded from the link below. Approximate size: 75MB

    There are way more than this but this is all I can remember at the moment.
    On a side note, LfS Is not so much of a "game" but more of a simulator and I truly recommend trying it out.

    Gore: Ultimate Soldier (Wikipedia Page)

    March 2011 [DEAD] Game servers have been shut-down.

    I figure after posting a driving game, a shooter, it is time for some RPG stuff...

    The Chronicles of Spellborn (Wikipedia page)

    Originally intended to be released as a pay MMORPG, the developers went bankrupt and the publisher (Acclaim) released the game as free-to-play soon after (for now).

    And another...

    Universal Combat (Wikipedia Page)

    You will either really hate or really like this one. Not for the easily distracted, Universal Combat comes from the BattleCruiser series by infamous Derek Smart. Published in 2004 and released as freeware in 2008, it is a FPS, naval sim, as well as a space combat sim all rolled into one. (Several of the previous iterations in the series can be downloaded from the link below, including BattleCruiser 3000AD and BattleCruiser Millennium) Approximate size for all three games: pretty big.

    Very old, but for those who don't know about it, GTA and GTA II are now free.

    Grand Theft Auto

    The first, the original, the one that more or less started it all. The game is more of a "registerware" than freeware, but it is fully playable/free after a quick registration process. (Note: Several other games are available on that page, for free, including GTA 2.) And now the screenshots, in all their ancient glory:

    And another...

    The Babylon Project

    This one is based on the popular Babylon 5 TV series and was built from the FreeSpace 2 source code. Pretty impressive for a community project. Approximate size: 750MB to 1.8GB (for the full DVD+extras version)

    Screenshots: [plenty more on the official site]

    Some more strategy stuff...

    Steel Panthers: World at War

    This one is a bit older and turn based, but a perfect time-waster nonetheless. (In a good sense.) Approximate size: 425MB

    More driving....

    Volvo - The Game

    Perhaps not as exciting as the Ferrari game posted above, the game does look pretty good for a free game. It features more cars and tracks than the Ferrari game. However, it is still ... well, a Volvo game. Overall, pretty decent. Approximate Size: 600MB

    Cheers! Didn't realise HL2: DM was free, thought it was only for people with certain versions of Half-Life 2.
