Freeware Games List

Freeware Games List for Windows XP, Vista, 7

Updates: October 2011 | September 2011 | August 2011 | July 2011

  • :star: - Recommended games. These are my personal recommendations so take them with a grain of salt.
  • Web-Based games run in your web browser using Flash, HTML5, or Javascript.
  • Online games require an active internet connection in order to play.
  • Adware - I typically add this to installers which attempt to trick you into installing the adware, e.g. requiring you to click Decline instead of Accept.

See the Freeware Alternative List for free Windows software.

Got a new one for the list: Proun.

I haven't got around to playing it yet, but the trailer looks great. :) It's being sold on a pay-what-you-want basis, so you can get it for free, or you can pay for it, and you'll get a bonus track to play (it's not technically pay-what-you-want though, as there's a minimum payment of ?1.75).
