"It's an unfortunate economic fact that good games – hell even crap games – cost money. We're all used to walking into our local retailer with a spring in our step and gaming on our mind, steadfastly weaving our way through the crowds towards our intended purchase driven by the unseen energy that is anticipation.
This is followed by the less than fantastic feeling of running – desperately screaming for help – from the store with your game(s) under your arm and a white-hot, almost beautiful patch of flame and ash burning through your pants where your wallet used to be. But it doesn't always have to be this way, there's an often forgotten about 'other world' at your fingertips, a place where great gaming experiences lie in wait for you to find.
We've decided to save you the effort however, of having to scour the internet looking for them, and instead bring you an inventory of what we consider to be some of the best free games available. It's by no means the definitive list, simply because there's too much greatness out there being given away for free for us to ever contain it all in one place. Instead we have a selection, a platter of some of the shining gems that have the potential to amuse you for hours without leaving you begging on a street corner for loose change to help furnish your cardboard box abode.
So without further ado, we bring you 'the list' – with a good spread of everything from First-Person-Shooters to MMORPGs, take a look, find what you like and start playing."
