GWN list the best free web games of all time as an antidote to this age of expensive gaming!
"Gaming is an expensive hobby. If you can get past the hardware, which has seen significant price hikes in recent years, game prices have been rising ($60 is the new $50, apparently). Add in the essential accessories, the requisite services, etc. and you have a pastime that is totally brutal on the wallet.
Luckily, there is a great alternative for the poor and the cheap among us. Free games are all over the web, and good, bad, or just ugly, they're free for the taking. Fortunately, there are some excellent titles, developed by creative indie gamemakers that can hang with their console and commercial PC big brothers. We've rounded up some of the best and brightest, from shooters to RPGs to wacky one screen flash titles, ensuring that you'll never be without a quality gaming fix, so long as there's a screen in front of you."
