Here's a good one.

http://www.addictinggames.com/ngame.html

the game is called n. Just n. Makes it kind of confusing with all the typos that can occur.

Another good one is Playing with Fire 2. Google it. I can't find the addicting games.com link It's a fun game, but you gotta play full screen.

If a person is legally blind, and can suddenly see, is he breaking the law?
If a friend says he's going outside to get some air, what was he breathing before?

I know I'm doing something like advertising a website here and it's not very nice, however this website has tons of free games reviews with links to their authors.

I just found it and I discovered many good games on it, so I just wanted to share with all you guys.

It's actually an online flash game, but this is the first video game I ever played- Battle city/tank for the Nintendo Famicom/NES. It's also one of my favorites. Beware- you blow up in one hit, so its not uncommon to die even on level 1.
Quick rundown of how to play:
Enter selects/starts level1
Ctrl is used in the menu
arrow keys control your tank
x and z fire your cannon (doesn't matter which one you choose to use)
--
The basic enemy tank is slow, dies in one hit, and shoots slow
The fat square thing with 6 wheels dies in one hit and shoots slow too, but it moves very fast
The tank with what looks like a hook of sorts on the back is like the first, but shoots fast
The long rectangular tank is very slow and shoots slow, but takes many hits to die
--
You need to protect the bird flag at the bottom of the screen. If it blows up, you lose.
--
As far as I know, 2 player mode is not supported...
--
When hit, a flashing tank provides an upgrade somewhere on your screen
Star- upgrades your tank's gun (fires faster)
Hard hat- temporary shield
Shovel- temporary invulnerability on base
Clock- stops time temporarily for everyone but you
Bomb- kills all enemy tanks on screen

Ultimate Tank is another game (for the PC) that was based off of Battle City. I can't remember where I found it though.
You no longer blow up in 1 hit, so the first few levels arn't too challenging...

Plays mostly the same, but there are more (and different) upgrades. I recommend you read the "help" section.

I forgot where to download it though >.< :oops:

online only MMOG persistent space ship trading and fighting game with huge universes and player built and run economies. 90% of the game is playable for free, but there is some features and sections you have to have a paid account for.

If y'all like it, look me up in the Orion universe under the pilot named 'Samus Arran' (note the 2 Rs) of the Alliance "The Outlanders" 8) (shameless plug, I know)

Some of those are abandonware. IANAL but I don't think U.S. copyright law has that category, but EU copyright law does AFAIK. At least abandonware sites I've heard of seem to be European.

Also, Lazarus isn't really free. It's a total conversion of Dungeon Siege and that game you have to pay for. A lot of people consider that worth the price just for Lazarus though, which is a good thing because it's not considered a very good game.

huge list! :D

Unfortunately Atarlost is right, some of them are still games from abandonware websites. :(

I can see Samorost (flash game) that I enjoyed a lot.
