thegreatbuddha, I'll PM you the code when I get my hacked Steam acc back, if it's not gone by then.

Thanks. That would be rad.

Eternal Lands is great! Free open-source MMORPG. You cannot get slicker or geekier than EL.

If there were any more MMORPG links in one place, I think this thread would explode from sheer geekdom.

Here are some free MMOs

Dungeon Runners

Also, check out ijji.com. It's got a FPS called Gunz, and some other games on there to DL and play for free.

These next two are free to DL, free to play medieval MMORPGs, Last Chaos being the better of the two, in my opinion.

Shadow Bane

Last Chaos

Also if you like 8Bit Theater from nuklearpower.com, check out the forums there. They have a server for Ragnarok Online. All you have to do is join the forums and get the info there on how to DL it and whatnot.


Another good one from ijji, is gunbound. Definately some good times there. It took a little time to understand the delay system, but once you get it. Everything works like clockwork.

I put a link up to Portal: The Flash Version on the Orange Box thread. What can I say? The game is practically perfect as a 2D puzzle/platform game; it has a vague reminiscence of classics like Lode Runner and such.

Sadly there is no companion cube in-game but you can make one with a console command. Also, there really isn't any story and <spoiler>you get a cake at the end</spoiler>

Maple Story

www.maplestory.com

I am so unbelievably happy someone mentioned MS...it is insanely addictive and I highly recommend it to anybody.

There's a game out there called Trickster, i only played in the testing time awhile ago, but it was pretty fun, especially since it was all 10 year olds and I couldn't help bt feel smart. Cute animal-esque characters.

Some fairly addictive browser games. Desktop Tower Defense in particular is fun.

ATTENTION PEOPLE VERY IMPORTANT FREE GAME HERE.

For all you fuckheads who missed out (which is pretty much all of you) gametap is giving away PSYCHONAUTS for free. Get it.

It may be the case that you're only allowed to play it until the New Year (I'm not familiar with Gametap's schtick) but a month and a half is plenty of time to acquaint yourself with the charms of this 'un. You might even be sad you didn't pay for it.

I'm planning on paying for it by downloading it onto my 360 when the Xbox Originals service rolls out in December. Plus, I can play it with a gamepad that way, the way it was designed.

The IGF finalists are up, and a few of them have free demos/downloads.  My favorite playable one thus far has been Synaesthete.  It's a mix between Guitar Hero and Geometry Wars, kinda...yeah.  Check it out the finalists here: http://www.igf.com/02finalists.html

Not at all. I've used one before.

If you're into older PC games or emulated console titles, www.the-underdogs.info/ is a good place to go. There are a lot of titles over there that are free to download.

It's honestly been a long enough time ago that I can't recall. I've since sold the thing. I used it for MechWarrior 2: Mercenaries. That'll give you an idea for the time we're talking about here.

I tried out Synaesthete.  Finished the first two acts.

It's certainly an interesting concept, but at times it seems like too much to manage, both dodging and beat-shooting.  It also seems a little repetitive, and unless there is a spell better than Equilibrium I don't see myself using anything else.

I'm old school, so I used to play Commander Keen with a Gravis Gamepad, which had a configuration not unlike an SNES controller, if I'm not mistaken. After awhile it lost responsiveness.

Everyone who doesn't own a Mac or Linux computer should jump on Gametap and get Psychonauts for free. You can play it until the 31st. I know it was already posted, but it needs to be said again. This is an amazing offer. Really.

Recommending ADOM but not NetHack because NetHack's interface is "too complex" is just wrong.

ADOM is a million times harder and buggier than NetHack and the command structure is annoyingly convoluted (particularly the way you use class skills and order minions).

NetHack is also the single greatest game ever created, incidentally.

Adventure Game Studio's website is your friend for some really quite great oldschool point and click adventures.  I just played Murder In a Wheel last night, and while it only took me about an hour to solve, it was one of the most pleasurable gaming hours I've spent in quite a while.  Really well-done game.

Well, I am a freeware gamer from way back. Let us see.

You want a Castlevania: Symphony of the Night style platformer?
Eternal Daughter (There are some other games on that site, some almost as good.)

You want a Smash TV clone?
Destruction Carnival

Here's a list of free first-person shooters:
List

And a horrible shootemup I made when I was about 15. Strangely, the other, better games I made no longer seem to exist.
Destructor Dan (Direct Link)

For independent, often free, games, try TIGS.

Have you tried any of the graphical front ends for NetHack, like Vulture's Eye?
It's a lot easier to understand what's going on when a hallway looks like a hallway and a staircase looks like a staircase, though there is something to the simplistic appeal of the ASCII visuals of the original.

In the 11 years I've played NetHack, I have always only used the basic tiles that come packaged with the official release.  ASCII is preferred because "DUDE IT'S THE ONLY REAL WAY TO PLAY, NOOB" but it really has no advantages over tiles.  With tiles, you can always see if a weapon is a dagger or a longsword, if a piece of armor is a cloak or a worthless ring mail, etc.

I tried Falcon's Eye once or twice but really didn't like it, mostly because of the isometric-view and the fact that you can't see much of the dungeon on-screen all at once.  Plus I actually found it way more confusing to have all those mouse-supported menus and whatnot.

Maybe it's just a function of having played NetHack for so long but seriously, the interface once you get used to it is just so intuitive and simple.  In real-time, these days it only takes me about 4-6 hours to ascend a character spread out over 2 or 3 sessions.

I've finally gotten "pretty good" at ADOM - I've even won the game once - but there are so many parts of it that are just tedious and/or unfair.  The monster spawn rate is ridiculous, some parts of the game can be basically unbeatable unless you have the right character or items (I'm looking at you, Tower of Eternal Flames), and it's kind of annoying that unless you want to totally gimp yourself every single character you play will end up using an Orcish Spear for the entire game, until you can find a better Spear, since all the other weapon class bonuses suck and getting weapon artifacts is, to say the least, a massive pain in the ass (and most of the weapon artifacts suck).

It's really too bad because ADOM could be a fantastic game if the author would release the source code and let people work on it, since he hasn't updated it since, what, 2001?
