    Default What are the best PC Freeware games?

    Man, these games are great. A total throwback to the good old days of gaming. And there are so many great games like these out there. I wish games like Bejeweled would get ported to the Gameboy Advance or something.

    So, my question is, what are your favorite webbased or freeware games?

    My favorites are Bejeweled, Alchemy, Collapse, and I used to have a game on my PC called Jizz Ball or something like that but I bought a new PC and never found another copy of it.

    Please post links to free-ware games similar to the ones I listed if you know of any.

    The V-Cade is a good place for freeware games. Need to download the Vitalize! plug-in but it's all free done by individuals.

    Warning Forever really rocks... www.gamehippo.com is a pretty good freeware site

    The problem with Bejeweled et al. is that even the web-based games aren't entirely freeware. Of the Pop Cap collection, I most greatly enjoyed Insaniquarium.

    Home of the Underdogs remains an excellent source for freeware games. I'm not talking about all of the abandonware that was once sold and can't be bought anymore, I'm talking about the wide array of original freeware. There's some awesome Japanese stuff like Akuji the Demon, Super Mario XP, rRootage, G-Type, and many more there that I would have never heard of otherwise.

    (There's also a sticky thread in their Gamer's Corner forum with various freeware recommendations if the selection that's already up isn't enough.)
