I’ve listed a lot of freeware games already – but the internet being the incredibly awesome place it is, there are far more great free games around than I could fit into two articles. So here are some more of the best free games on the internet!:
Project Torque http://project-torque.aeriagames.com/ A Racing-themed MMO with a wide range of tracks, cars, and fun. Graphics and gameplay are pretty solid.
Lord of the Rings Online http://www.lotro.com/ Yet another fantasy MMO has become free-to-play! Granted, it’s not 100% free like Uru or Ryzom – there are some things in-game that cost money – but there’s an awful lot there that is free, it’s a great-quality fantasy game with an expansive world, and it’s based on one of the greatest, if not THE greatest, works of fantasy ever written.
Blurst. http://blurst.com/ This is not a single game, it’s a collection of games. Really offbeat, silly games. Offroad Velociraptor Safari. Time Donkey. And more… these are ridiculous but fun, and pretty well-designed.
Portal: Flash http://portal.wecreatestuff.com/ I listed Valve’s Portal once before, but by now the “free to play” promotion is expiring. So why not try the Flash alternative? The puzzle-solving gameplay works surprisingly well in 2d, and there are 40 levels.
Abe Lincoln Must Die! http://www.telltalegames.com/samandmax/lincolnmustdie This is one freebie episode in an episodic series by Telltale Games. It’s a third-person adventure game with an outlandish sense of humor. I have to say, their games have more personality and laughs than most video games do, and this episode is one of their best.
Huje Tower. http://www.bubblebox.com/play/puzzle/1506.htm It’s essentially “World of Goo” but freeware.
Anarchy Online. http://www.anarchy-online.com/wsp/anarchy/frontend.cgi?func=frontend.show&template=main This classic sci-fi MMO has a free version now!
There you have it – even more awesome freeware games. Go play them and have fun!
