    The 50 Best Freeware Games​


    Introduction:

    UPDATE: 50 50 and the user submitted NOW!

    Just a short intro. Due to my recent addiction to freeware games (that was due to my lack of funds) I decided to compile a list of the freeware games I found the best. I've wasted a lot of time on the games, so I thought that everyone should too! :P Mind you, this is only the main 20 50 50 and the user submitted ones so far, it's not complete yet, however it will be. By tomorrow most likely. Make sure to suggest anything you find not there.

    Speaking of suggesting, suggest any game not on the list since I'll be devoting a section just for those once I'm done I've devoted a section for those. Along with honorable mentions which I will add soon.

    Cave Story

    [​IMG]

    The most beloved free game of all time, Cave Story has been played by millions of gamers across the webs. The depth of the story combined with fun and exciting gameplay mechanics make it a very good game. Even more amazing, it's only a megabyte big, without all the extras. Everyone should play it. And I do mean everyone.

    Desktop Tower Defense

    [​IMG]

    Desktop Tower Defense is one of the most addictive games ever created. It's sucks you in and before you know it, it's 3 am in the morning and you're half asleep. If you're trying to finish something due tomorrow, do not play it. However, if it's Sunday and there's nothing you can do, fire up this flash game and prepare to get your time wasted.

    Knytt Stories

    [​IMG]

    Knytt Stories is a platformer in which you go through levels which are called stories, and where very story has its own unique, well, story. It seems like a simplistic platformer at first glance however it isn't. While the developer has only released a few stories on his own, there are a plethora of user-created stories to be found at his forum. These vary greatly in plot and difficulty so there's something in there for everyone.

    Grand Theft Auto 1 & 2

    [​IMG]

    Who would have thought Rockstar was this generous? Not only do they release a game for free, but they release 3. (they also have a rare gem called Wild Metal available) The classic top-down crime gameplay is still great fun, even by today's standards. It's still pretty good actually. Worth a download even if you have to sign up for their mailing list.

    Sam and Max 104: Abe Lincoin Must Die

    [​IMG]

    One of my favorites on this list, this adventure game starring the crime fighting dog and hyper-kinetic rabbity thing was released for free out of season one. I actually consider it to be the best of the season so that's a good thing. It's still as funny and as randomly entertaining as ever, and the classic point and click gameplay becomes really fun when you get dialog like this. Available on Steam.

    osu!

    [​IMG]

    Osu is a free rhythm game that is based primarily upon the Ouendan series, however it also takes elements from numerous other rhythm games like Taiko. Thanks to it's easily usable beat maker, Osu has a wide variety of songs called "beatmaps". They range from rock to pop to classical, and to the most seen and which is credited for a large number of the playerbase, Anime songs. It's fun, easy to learn but hard to master, and has too many songs to count.

    TrackMania Nations Forever

    [​IMG]

    This game was released to promote their full version, however it plays much like a full game itself. Even with the limited tracks and such, it's still great fun. The controls work great and the physics are wacky. It's not really the most realistic driving game in the world, but it's definitely great to play with you jumping up ramps and across lakes. Available on Steam and through their website.

    Karoshi

    [​IMG]

    Karoshi is a unique platformer because in this game, the aim is to die. No seriously, you're supposed to die. There are a total of 5 games in the series, all of them have something that makes them particularly special. For example, in the 5th game, you're supposed to figure out a way for both you and everyone else to die. It's insanely fun and kinda sadistic to try and kill your character. Then again, "Karoshi" means death from overwork.

    Crayon Physics

    [​IMG]

    The deluxe version may have already come out but the original is still on the internet and as good as ever. The drawing puzzle gameplay is still very fun. Some of you may have played Pocket Physics on the DS. This is sort of like that, except for the fact that you have to solve puzzles using your drawn creations.

    Quake Live

    [​IMG]

    Quake Live is Quake III Arena in your browser. Yes, in your browser. Thanks to a plugin, it plays within Firefox and now, Chrome. It's about as fun and twitchy as it was before. It's smooth, responsive, and well worth it for the tiny price of 0. It's the fast paced FPS that we all remember. Playable in your browser.

    Super Crate Box

    [​IMG]

    Super Crate Box is reminescent of old arcade games. And it plays a lot like it too. Combining action with some platforming gameplay, it's a fast paced and addictive game. It's simplistic, but it's very difficult to master. I remember when I first played it, I kept dying in the tutorial. It's going to keep you interested for a long time. Another thing I love is the nice soundtrack.

    Alien Swarm

    [​IMG]

    The game is a top down shooter released by our beloved Valve. The game is very professionally made for a free game and Valve decided to be generous. The gameplay is quite refreshing. The tactical gameplay is nice and well made, and the graphics are superb, at least for something free. Available on Steam.

    RunMan: Race Around The World

    [​IMG]

    Runman is a very fun platforming game with some elements derived from Sonic. You have to run to the end as fast as you possible. You can't die, you just get spit out where you came from where you die. It's actually superior to Sonic in some aspects. Since you can't die, you don't have to worry about going back to the start of the level. Just keep going until the end. It's pure fun and has very high replayability since you'll want to keep beating your own score. The graphics and soundtrack are adorable by the way.

    Spelunky

    [​IMG]

    Everyone loves Spelunky right? Yes, that's right. Spelunky is essentially a platformer + dungeon crawler where your character travels through underground caverns and such to retrieve goodies, treasure, and to save damsels in distress. The maps in the game are randomly generated so you never go what you're gonna get. That is probably the cause of the large difficulty curve that a new player has to face. It's quite easy to die but once you get the hang of it, it's going to be really fun.

    N

    [​IMG]

    You've probably played N+ right? Well, this is the original. The addicting yet frustrating ninja is still as fun as ever. And with user-submitted content and levels. I don't have to explain much here.

    Echoes

    [​IMG]

    This game, not to be confused with another game I've never heard of, is sort of like Asteroids. And Geometry Wars. But according to the website, it really is Asteroids hyperactive, drug crazed brother displayed in blur-o-vision© and viewed through psychedelic sunglasses in a cheap nightclub. Yeah, so it's a really fun Shmup. Really fun and really wacky too.

    Eversion

    [​IMG]

    This is a very good platformer. No game could go from extremely cute and adorable to seriously fucked up this fast. One moment, the world is full of clouds and flowers, and the other, there's one eyed black things, bubbles that look like their made of tar, and (this genuinely creeped me out) hands that randomly pop out from the sea and try to grab you. It's seriously fucked up, yet they actually take these things and turn them into great gameplay mechanics. If you're not easily scared, give it a shot.

    Dwarf Fortress

    [​IMG]

    This ASCII-ish game is very complex and very unique. Perhaps it may turn players off immediately by its intimidating difficulty, however if you get into it, it becomes really good. The difficulty is immense though, you'll die. Very often. However, the extreme depth and things to do here and the number of elements thrown there really make it worth a play, even though the motto of the game is "Losing is fun."

    Canabalt

    [​IMG]

    Canabalt is a simplistic action game where you simply press one button to jump over buildings and obstacles. It's not so deep or compelling, but it is great for coffee breaks or when you're bored. It's surprisingly fun actually.

    Desktop Dungeons

    [​IMG]

    Desktop Dungeons is a very compacted and unique rogue like game. It's very complex yet one game of it manages to last 10 minutes, just about perfect for your snack break. It's deep and challenging due to the plethora of aspects like classes and races. The random-generation aspect of the game makes for a fresh experience each time. Perhaps one of the most different rogue-likes I've ever seen.

    What Linus Bruckman Sees When His Eyes Are Closed

    [​IMG]

    This is an excerpt from my review of the game:
    "The way that this game plays is innovative and unique. It's one of the most original games I've ever played, and it's well worth a play even if the puzzle gameplay may seem to be a turn off. It's an amazing game and there's not really a reason why you shouldn't play it. The story is one of the most engrossing ones I've ever experienced. It's definitely a must-try."
    And since I'm sure that's not descriptive enough, I'll (shamelessly) include a link to my review.

    Fraxy is a great SHMUP with a very high level of customization. The user can easily customize the sprites, music, effects and other parts of the game. You can create stages of your own and bosses to go with them. Due to this, there is a lot of user downloadable content to be found on their website. Pretty great game to fool around with.

    Iji

    [​IMG]

    Iji is an action-packed strategic platform shooter with a detailed story, large levels with multiple paths, powerful bosses and lots of secrets. It's story is gigantic since most actions you take affect the dialog and events in many different ways. There is a high level of replayability since you'll want to see everything that happens, and also due to the great gameplay with a great leveling system. I know what I'm about to say may sound like blasphemy, but this game may actually be just as good as Cave Story.

According to a review of this game, "there are many newer games with infinitely superior graphics and sound that are inferior experiences to this."

    Command and Conquer: Tiberian Dawn

    The original Command and Conquer was released for free at some point. We all know the game by now so it's almost futile for me to describe it. The only problem is that it was taken off of the website, but it's still legally available to download for free. It's still Command and Conquer in all of its beautiful glory, amazingly fantastic.
    To those that can't run it, here's a fix, courtesy of p1ngpong: Go into your game folder and set compatibility to windows 95 for the game exe, and then download and replace one of the game dll's in that same folder with the updated one in the file that can be downloaded below.

This is a fascinating game that employs a message.

This one is pretty bare, there's not even any background music. (you have to place it yourself) However, the gameplay is addictive. You have to battle a boss repeatedly, and the boss gets STRONGER AND STRONGER until his body occupies nearly the entire screen and it's hard to get anywhere without running into him. You will spend the next two hours of your like playing it once you start.

    You Have To Burn The Rope

    You Have To Burn The Rope is a comment and an insult to common Video Game culture. Perhaps it's considered akin to Portal, however it almost reverses the concept of Portal's complexity. You Have To Burn The Rope is probably the simplest game ever made, yet somehow some people can't figure out what to do. Those are the same people who skip tutorials. It takes you 2 minutes to play the game, however it's worth your time for the ending song alone. Play it now. If you can't win, post it here. XD

    Codename: Gordon

    C'mon. You have to have heard of this at some point already. The somewhat fan-made spin-off to Half Life 2 is still available and it's still shiny and glorious. It's still fun for some 2D Shooting glory. Worth a download, it's available on Steam too, but it doesn't have a link. If someone could give me to link, it would be much appreciated. For now, I'll just post the normal download.

    The Breach

    A sci-fi metroidvania that's more metroid than vania. It's a fun and extremely atmospheric sci-fi action platformer with a great story. Worth a try, it's flash anyways.

    Robot Unicorn Attack/Heavy Metal

    It's not the most complex or advanced game gameplay wise, but we can all agree that the reason why this game is selling so well is because it's funny. It's funny because of the extremely flamboyant presentation of the first game, and the fact that everything suddenly turned weird in the second. And the theme song. After you play if a few times, you begin to realize that you've been singing the song of the first or banging your head to the song of the second. I dare you to forget about this game. You can't.

    8Bit Killer

    The game is an 8bit FPS. Doesn't that sound unique? Well yes, yes it is. It's a short game, but the gameplay mechanics, the retro look and feel and great soundtrack certainly make it worth a play. The story isn't the best, but, cut it some slack. It's meant to be a 90's game.

    Rescue: The Beagles

    This game is an adorable, animal friendly platformer that should be on PETA's campaign (but it isn't, since they prefer things like Super Tofu Boy, bleeeech!). The game is a simplistic and nicely designed platformer where you must rescue, well beagles, all while not getting beaten by the bad guys. It seems really... er... well, it doesn't sound that good written but trust me, the game will surprise you with it's fun simplicity. Give it a shot.

    Teeworlds

    Teeworlds is a retro online multiplayer shooter that's like an adorable 2D idea of a deathmatch game. You control these little adorable Kirby-like characters in which you nuke it out against your foes and enemies online in a variety of game modes. It's ADORABLE. For some reason. Even if I get killed by tons of nukes, I still find time to look at the cute visuals.

    FreeCol

    FreeCol is a strategy game often associated with FreeCiv, although they really aren't the same thing. FreeCol is based upon an old game called Colonization, NOT Civilization: Colonization. It's gameplay is somewhat similar to it's other free buddy, however in this game your goal is to create an independent country with a group of colonists. Nice strategic gameplay.

    Passage

    Passage isn't really much of a game, so much as it is a message. It's not really possible to reveal that much without spoiling it, however I'll try. You're supposed to go through the passage "of life" and basically you right ahead of you. Your viewpoint is limited to only the tiles ahead, meaning you have to go down or up to see what's there. Play it. And then read the creator's statement.

    GENETOS

    Genetos is basically a history lesson on Shmups. As you go through the game, the levels are built to represent the different stages of the genre's history, and it's evolution to what it is now. I think it's the first game ever to do that actually. It's a unique look at what your dad used to play in the Arcade, or what you may have played in the arcade. (I'm 14, and my dad hates video games so I don't belong to either of them)

    Nice thread! But I would like to know if some titles support multiplayer or co-op. Could you add that?

    Simplicity is fine, if it's a great game. I mean, I did put Canabalt here, and it's basically you pressing one button over and over.

    Eversion is a great game, if not really fucked up.

    The Suffering is free but ad-supported. Don't know how intrusive the ads are as I've only played the PS2 version.

    You can pirate anything, but that's the point of this list, to get games that DON'T have to pirated and are NOT illegal when you download them.

    Nice list, I downloaded command and conquer but it wouldn't run. I googled around and found a fix for those who want to play it. Go into your game folder and set compatibility to windows 95 for the game exe, and then download and replace one of the game dll's in that same folder with this updated one ftp://ftp.westwood.com/pub/ccgold/CCGOLDXPPATCH.ZIP

    Works fine now on xp for me. [​IMG]
