99 Free Games from 2009

from the article:

This past year will go down for me personally as the year in which my spending on videogames plummeted due to personal dissatisfaction with the costs in money and time demanded by most of the AAA products out there on the shelves. Now, Ive been a games player since the arcade days of yore, and though I wouldnt call myself hardcore I certainly have always lavished a good part of my attention span and cash onto the big industry players products. But after about spring of 2009, I more or less stopped purchasing AAA games entirely; while they still have their charms, Ive mostly decided for now that most of whats out there I dont want to play at the price point theyre being sold for and I dont want to spend tens of hours on stories that dont generally deserve that sort of commitment.

To that end, Ive since turned my eyes towards the burgeoning free games scene and to be honest what Ive found is pretty darned spectacular. Creative talents all over the world are out there spinning out downloadable, browser, Flash and Unity games that you can while away enjoyable hours on without having it cost you one red cent. Now sure, you do need a computer as a platform and might also sometimes have to suffer through some ads to get to the games. And once in awhile you may even want to donate a few bucks to a budding game designer who has put his or her sweat equity out there for you to play at no cost. But otherwise, the sheer number and quality of the games available for nothing is a simple testament to just how broad and active the development community outside the corporate AAA space really is at present. This is a very, very good thingfor games, for players and ultimately for your very own wallet.

The following is a list of 99 free games (in no particular order) that Ive enjoyed this calendar year, nearly all of which have been released in 2009 or very late in 2008. So why dont you take a break from funding corporate overlords and see just what a feast there is out there in the wide world below the big ticket levelall you can lose, really, is just a little bit of time.

It was originally a retail release though; I remember paying full whack for it when it first came out. Great game though- a highly underrated RTS. You could get it for the PS1 as well as PC.
