Are there any decent free games on the web?

I'm looking for a free down-loadable game to play that isn't absolutely crap. Is there such a thing?

BTW, don't suggest combat arms/crossfire/metin2 I already have those.

Gametap has a lot of free games to download, and others at good prices.

You could also try Quake Live.

Well, I've enjoyed ArchLord, and I enjoyed RF Online until the North American version shut down, but I think it's been rereleased under a different publisher.

Great fast paced shooter action.

Are you one of those poor Macintosh gamers that are in the possession of Empire at War, yet because of the scarcity of Mac players out there you have nobody to play against? If you are, PM me if you want to set up a game.

You could always try MAME and the tons of arcade games it has. I'm having a blast with Last Blade right now...

This game is great! It's similar to Counter Strike, however I think that it's better implemented than CS. Great game, good graphics, great community to play with. Multiplayer through LAN and Internet, but it's a great game. SP is possible through the use of Bots, but its still in a MP environment.

Better yet, you can play it off a flash drive!

I can't link this site but if you are into emulation google:

Rom World
The Old Computer
Romhacking
Rockman Exile

If you have a MAC OS which can operate in classic mode, I have very few probems with this game:
http://www.paranoidproductions.com/odyssey/index.html

Odyssey: Legend of Nemesis

It's an RPG of older times. Sort of school, sort of not.

In order to fully grasp the story I might first recommend that you read the preface of "Simen and Rochelle" in order to grasp the full scope (and tragedy) of the story.

If you need help figuring something out gameplay wise, drop me a line (I know stuff that the walkthrough doesn't!!! --I discovered it on my own)

Other than a few small things it is a great game. Excellent storyline for the most part, though rather phillisophical in some parts. Quite a bit is imparted to you in an implicit way. More than one outcome to many things in the game. Be warned it has a very grim storyline too, plus of the 4 endings none have a completely happy-hollywood ending. HOWEVER, You will NOT be sorry you played this game. It's an old game, no super graphics nor allies to join your lone character, but it's a great game nonetheless. I only wish more games had this kind of work and thought put into its storyline.

There are other games associated that use the same engine called the Exile series (you'll find a link). They're not free (though they do give limited samples for free for a time period), but, if you liked Odyssey...you might like these.


We'll murder them all, amid laughter and merriment...except for the few we take home to experiment!
