    Basically, post links to fun games you've played, but they have to be free.

    Newgrounds is an excellent source for such things. I just finished Arrival in Hell a nasty little horror point and click game set in a prison that's become the hunting ground of a monster.

    Quake Live is great and free. Basically it's free online Quake 3. Sonny 2 is a pretty good flash RPGs at www.armorgames.com. Also to my knowledge Combat Arms is free. Thats another free FPS like quakelive. Lots of good stuff at New Grounds also.

    I have had more fun than anyone should with a 3rd person zombie shooter playing Boxhead 2. It's been awhile, but I'm pretty sure it holds up.

    I recently found a game called Iji that's pretty damned good. It's a sci-fi shooter with hints of platforming and RPG.

    Other than that I've played Pandemic 2 a bit in honor of our dear piggy plight. I managed to infect Madagascar for the first time too.

    Ahh Pandemic. It's New Zealand that gets me every time.

    I think I linked to this site on the thread about the hail game. Also I am a fan of Auditorium, aaaand I have to confess I actually spend quite a lot of time on Facebook scrabble *looks sheepish*

    Oh yeah, I really enjoy Quake Live -- incredible to think that only a few years ago it needed a top of the range PC to run and now it's a browser applet.

    The Last Stand is great zombie action.

    and within a deep forest a 2d platform game with enjoyable atmosphere and nice gameplay

    Toribash for the unholy things you can do with people's body parts. (Note to self: Mod idea, genitals, so you can pull them off..) best fighting game ever.

    Eversion, a lovely little game with a unique mechanic
    which gets progressively more terrifying the more you play

    within a deep forest
    Oh! If we're going back to games that old:

    * Bloxorz (via Warren): Puzzle game, maze-without-walls.
    * The GROW Series (links down the left sidebar, or sorted by popularity here, although I'd put CUBE at the top): Cause/effect games.

    The Grow series is awesome, but I think I'd choose ISLAND as my favorite. Here's another pair:
    Cactus Arcade
    Das Uberleben 2.0
    44 Minutes and 33 Seconds of Uniqueness

    That game is indeed extra rad.

    White Butterfly - "Shoot-em-up game with strange 8-bit pastel colours and partly random music."
    adn two oldies:
    "Defeat autocreated huge battleships. Shootem up game: rRootage"
    Warning Forever - a 2d shooter where the bosses evolve according to your attack.

    Wow, Eversion is awesome!

    I'll second GrowCube, I killed alot of time on that one and never did quite get it right. I always seemed to be one step out of sequence.



    Samorost is another fun one

    Oh my favorite current game is Mario 63 @newgrounds and others. It's like a whole new mario game with hours and hours of gameplay.

    Thought some of you would get a kick out of the game design on this one...really simple point and click game but very cool art:

    Little Wheel

    I find a lot of really good games on Kongregate.com.

    Almost anything you find here Digipen has people make games and post them as finals. Favorites are Tag and Narbacular Drop (you might know it as the inspiration for Portal).
    Tag is probably the best one, in my opinion.

    @Ariana-Cube was awesome. I also enjoyed the hell out of RPG
