This is a list of games that are now free, as in gratis, to download. If you know of a commercial game that went freeware (or adware) please post here and I'll move the information to this post. Requirements: The game must be completely free/gratis with no strings attached. Gifts with pre-orders, etc. don't belong here but feel free to create threads about those in the PC games section. The game must be permanently free. Free weekends or whatever also don't belong here as it would require excessive thread maintenance. Once again, do post about these opportunities in the PC games section if you can. If the game is ad-supported, please put a notice about it. Certain people prefer to pay if it means no ads. They shouldn't have to download x MBs only to find out it clashes with their principles. Thanks to Davros for his continuing help with this thread and the PC gaming section in general.

Here are some of the most popular (and free) ones in order from specific to general use. ScummVM - Allows you to run certain classic graphical point-and-click adventure games, provided you already have their data files. The clever part about this: ScummVM just replaces the executables shipped with the games, allowing you to play them on systems for which they were never designed! DOSBox - Emulates an Intel x86 PC, complete with sound, graphics, mouse, joystick, modem, etc., necessary for running many old MS-DOS games that simply cannot be run on modern PCs and operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista, Linux and FreeBSD. Virtual PC - Lets you create separate virtual machines on your Windows desktop, each of which virtualizes the hardware of a complete physical computer. Use virtual machines to run operating systems such as MS-DOS, Windows, and OS/2. Virtual PC Guy's Blog.
