Do I have to say Minecraft? Or did someone already get that?

minecraft.net

Easily one of the coolest games I have ever played, even the free version (although the free version is really for the more artistically inclined).

Check out the featured games on yoyogames.com.

These games aren't flash, they are executables.

There is a browser plugin that you can use if you select "Play Now", but there's also a link on the right side of each game's page which lets you simply

Dwarf Fortress. Can be found on bay12games.com or bay12forums.com. Easily the best free game I've ever played, although it does take a bit of imagination on your part because of the graphics (ASCII). I highly recommend it.

Don't know if these have been posted, both great games.

Star Wars Galaxies Emu (Requires ownership of game)

http://www.swgemu.com/forums/content.php

Phantasy Star Online Blue Burst (totally free and legal)

http://schtserv.com/

SWGEmu is a great alternative to those wanting to play a fun SW MMO without the subscription and I'd imagine with the age of the game that it can be bought for next to nothing now a days. Though in beta it's still very playable and has A LOT of people playing atm, is set to the more favored Pre-CU gameplay (can't start as jedi), once the OR is out JTL will be worked on as the only expansion. PSOBB is just a great game and one of the OG's of the MMO, lots of people still playing.

Tried it. Got bored after 5 minutes then went back to Skyrim. To be fair, Skyrim is one of the best games of all time, second best of the year. So it's not saying much. :lol:

I tried it out, really liked it. I played through the entire story mode, I might do some of the challenge stuff later.

Anarchy Online

Post by Noobasaurus »

Anarchy Online was released in 2001. I've only been playing it for two years. It's a really complex game that has many aspects to it, one being the ugly game engine. I've tried getting my friends to play it, but they complain about the graphics engine. The engine has supposedly been worked on for a number of years and there are occasional screens glimpsing at the wondrous world. In fact, as I write this, I saw that there will be a video of the new graphics engine this month! YAY!

So, if any of you have questions about this game, let me know! It's really fun and free to play.

Blacklight: Retribution.

It's a cyberpunk themed, "Modern-FPS" styled F2P FPS. It's currently in Open Beta, and is really good, especially quality-wise. This isn't just your run of the mill F2P FPS like Combat Arms, this is a good quality shooter that happens to be F2P. Plus nearly all (If not all) of the gameplay affecting stuff you can get without paying anything. It's pretty balanced too, so no "pay2win" problems with it.

Here, just have a video.

Ingame name is Fingerfood, and I play on US West. Catch you ingame!


Oh, and did I mention it has pilotable mechs? :P

Downloaded! Looks very interesting, though I have yet to install it.
