thanks for the annual reminder (http://www.hotukdeals.com/freebies/full-commercial-single-player-pc-games-free-legal-downloads-1222975) well worth doing

oh damn, beneath a steel sky!

I always wanted to complete that! and now I shall dedicate the weekend to it!

Thanks a ton

Full Spectrum Warrior.
I used to play that on my Xbox. Gonna grab that when I get home.

Thanks.

olpc simcity caught my attention. looking into that

Virtual Skipper 5 (2007) is great you can change the length of the rope, the speed of the swing and how high you jump... no wait

Area 51 (2005) is no longer freeware according to Wikipedia. Just to make you aware. Thanks for sharing

Best Sim City to date?

Do you know of any like Renegade Ops type games that I can do co op on same screen? In or out of vehicles top down shooters

What's Penumbra? Is it the same as Overture or black plague?

This point was raised when this deal was posted last year. According to Wikipedia, "The Suffering" is also no longer freeware either, but someone posted it recently and many are enjoying it...
http://www.hotukdeals.com/freebies/free-pc-game-download-suffering-1591460

Many reputable websites are still making these games available to download, so they obviously believe there is no problem with it!

This is the non-commercial version of Penumbra released before the commercial games to show off the real-time physics, etc. It is shorter than the full game, but is still long and good enough to be called a game.

voted cold because I have the freedom to express my opinion online

Great list OP

Some other freeware options:
Alleycat
Ultima iv

I loved Psi-Ops on the PS2. Great list, OP. Thanks

Hottest of the hot. Thank you kindly.

Banned

Great post, thanks for this.

Mech Warrior 4! Wooo

Nice find. HOT!

stop trolling.

Area 51 is pretty good, I enjoyed the hidden intel, kinda like its own mini-story within the game.

MechWarrior 4 for my Son

Rise & Fall: Civilizations At War for me

Thanks a lot......8)

Thanks, James. I am also loving the freemium titles Path of Exile and Rift at the moment.

Heat added. Lots of good free multiplayers too, Planetside 2 is amazing and 100% free to play - I no longer play Battlefield.

Also about 30-odd others listed here.
Edited by: "spaceinvader" 1st Jul 2013

i really enjoyed black mesa, highly recommend it!

Thanks, do you know if there is any help with installation at all?

Excellent, thank you, bookmarked for future reference.

You may wish to consider adding MechCommander 1 & 2 and MechCommander Omnitech (a standalone game created using the source code released by Microsoft) for which there are also a load of fan-made campaigns.

Thanks for mentioning these. I decided not to include MMOs as they are not strictly single player.

Thanks for the suggestions. I decided not to go as far back as the 1980's.

Yes, this is mentioned in the link to Wikipedia. I decided not to include titles as far back as the 1980's, even though olpc simcity (Micropolis) was released in 2008, it was a release of the 1989 game. Good to know it's available for free though...

Maybe also worth mentioning the three free titles from Rockstar Games: Grand Theft Auto 1&2 and Wild Metal
