The Ultimate Free Games List
Inspired by Gnome's Oh no more hand-picked free games (site no longer exists) I decided to create the mother load of free games. A List that contains every single free game that is worth playing. I'm absolutely sure that my initial list will miss many games but it will grow over time - with your help. I know that you have an ace up your sleeve and will help me create the list.
Tip: Check out Softonic's free games listing for even more cool games that are free to download and play.
For now, enjoy what we have collected so far and add any valuable entry in the comments. I will take a look and add it to the list. I decided to create a few categories which makes it easier to take a look at the list. Please note that I did not include so called Abondonware in the list. You might need Dos Box to run some of the games in windows.
Note: We are updating the list regularly with new games and remove games that are no longer available from it. Only games that meet our quality guidelines are added to the list.Â We would like to point out that we are not adding browser games, only desktop games that you can run on Windows PCs.
