TIP
If you play Runescape, this year's halloween event isn't worth the effort. It took me like 45 mins to get it, and when I finally did get it, it was a hood. A STUPID HOOD :|

Diver Down
It's a freeware game made by three people over 5 years.
The graphics are "okay"(think Zelda top-down RPG) but it could be worse considering it's only 256 colors
And the storyline .... :yes:
The story is good enough to make a movie out of.
I just finished it yesterday. It's very complete.
Try it.



Oh, I think I remember that. I played it a few years ago - and yeah, it was pretty good.

You may want to use this link, though, if you want to download it:

The link provided above doesn't work. (But try it out, it's worth your time.)

This is a pretty awesome game. Best space game I have played. Ever. It is a really long download though. As I recall, more than 2 gigs. The graphics are not bad, gameplay is awesome.

That, my friend, would take quite a while to do. Don't be lazy, just look through the pages.

I have heard that this game isn't that good, but it was commercial and it is now free.

Here is another free game. It is an updated version of the fps warsow. http://warsow.net/
I think that it is really good. It is a fast paced, cell shaded shooter that is based on motion (trick jumps....) and momentum. It is really fun and pretty high quality. The graphics are pretty good. :yes: The game has many weapons, but different game modes use specific weapons. For example, deathmatch uses all of the weapons while team dm uses only 1 rail gun like weapon. I suggest you try this game out. It is probably the best free fps I have come across so far. Here is a video of it:

Halo Zero
Awesome little side-scroller, based on the best selling Microsoft game.
For some reason it reminded me of Yoshi's Island... :?

Portal: The flash version.

Could use some voice overs from the computer thing, but over all, very good.
Has all the same gameplay features, and stuff from portal in 2d.
(not the same level layouts or anything though, It won't spoil the real Portal for you)
I had fun beating it.

Well, America's Army 2.83 is out. I dunno how many of you still play. I'm pretty sure it's been out for a couple of days now. Or maybe a week. But I dunno.

Anyways:
If you've never played, I reccomend it. It's a great online FPS where you play as an american soldier. There are plenty of maps to choose from, and the server list is never empty.
You can find more info at:
http://www.americasarmy.com/

Download it at:

Here's a very nice survival game.

Stranded 2

Image

Image
The idea is simple: You are stuck on an island with no way to get off. Survive.
The catch is, you get to choose how you survive.

This is done by a very clever item system. Example, you pick up a rock and a stick, combine the two and you have a spear. The game as four base stats: health, hunger, thirst, and tiredness. You gain health by eating, drinking and sleeping, your hunger level is taken down by eating, and so forth.

Besides the fact that the game's scripts are modable, it has almost unlimited potential due to the fact that you can play it(i.e. survive) almost forever.
All things considered this is a very fun, interesting game.

An update to Trackmania Nations, the free racing game: Trackmania Nations Forever.
http://www.trackmania.com/en/index.php? ... ub=nations
Trailer: http://www.tm-tube.com/
I haven't played 'Forever', but the original nations was probably one of thebest racing game I have ever played.
