Check out the gamegiveawayoftheday each weekend and the giveaway forums. There's over 2000 free games posted on the forums, most of which are in the form of a Week number then Good Games to Grab or Freegames for the weekday, then the title of the game.
Quite a few of the games listed above can be found in the forums and include, information about the games and later posts include images and links to videos of the games plus loads of abandonware and freeware games.

The threads haven't been updated in quite some time, but most are still valid. There's a synopsis in the sticky section of the main forums, but it only covers the first 100 weeks of the project. The last posts were made several months ago at around week 250

link to game discussion forums: http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/forums/forum/17

link to the weekend game giveaways: http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/forums/forum/17

You have to download and install the game giveaways within the 24hour time frame that they are being given away

You can also get over a thousand arcade games fro free from MyPlayCity via the following link:

http://www.myplaycity.com/

When installing the games make sure you uncheck the check boxes otherwise you will get toolbars and/or your home page changed.

There's also Jenkat games (prefer Jenkat to MyPlayCity as you don't usually get toolbar or home page hijacks, but there's not as many games available. There's also FreeGamePick and Gametop, which are similar to MyPlayCity

Just Google the names to find the sites.

Niiiice looking legit as well - entirely UN-like any "abandonware" posts. (_;) Always meant to get round to trying Area 51 - don't care about the hammering it got. So thanks!

Star Trek's not there is it?

Good find OP!

Psi-ops was awesome, gutted they never made a sequel.

Loved Full Spectrum Warrior and Hidden & Dangerous, shame I don't get as much time to play games as I used to back in the olden days

thanks for the list and links, good work.

Holy god, PSI OPS!!!!!!! Utterly loved this game on the Xbox, this will be mine again!!!!

Heat simply for Psi Ops, what a fantastic game!

Thanks dude! In the words of the 80's, you're the best around!

Good post, I loved playing hidden and dangerous back in the day. I used to have to download it in sections from freeloaded.com... Heat!!

I get a "web page could not be found" when I go to download "The Suffering"

great stuff

pirate bay

Thanks OP

some of the downloads don't work but great post holy **** brings back memories!!!

some of the links don't work but if you simply type in the game and "freeware" next to it you'll find updated links Eg: C&C tiberian sun

Are they all powered by adds ? Thanks though op

Thanks for the feedback, I have updated the links to "The Suffering" and "Command and Conquer: Tiberian Sun". Let me know if you have problems with any other links or with downloading the games.

Only the Ubisoft games from what I see, it looks like the ones from their site where you can play a level then watch an ad or tqo, play a level then watch an ad or two.

heat , and weell done for taking the time and effort to do this

ermmmm.... 'well'

Do add AlleyCat as well - added bonus with the game is that you don't need a programme like mo-slo to slow the action down to manageable levels. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/2/2a/Alleycat.png

http://www.myabandonware.com/game/alley-cat-1q

Edit: Could've sworn I've seen this game was released as freeware many years back... can't find the reference now

No trial period

Look for xpadder free. Up until something like version 5.3 it wasn't free and you can still find it to download. If you're using it for the mouse make sure you shrink the snaps to up down left right so that the cursor moves as you'd expect.

Thanks op!

Voted up for the effort son. Cheers.

Awesome!!! These are the sort of deals that make HUKD so good, not five pence off a SSD!! Thank you, heat added!

To crusader 77,

Yes, some of the games are ad supported, check the last link below, The suffering is discussed in detail. It's been a few years since I downloaded most of the games listed and as I have memory problems due to a serious head injury following an rta several years ago, I can't remember which games are ad supported. If you check the giveaway forums where a lot of these games were reviewed (see my post above i.e. Whiterabbit01, going back about three or four years ago you should be able to find out whether they are add supported as I always mentioned such things. There's over 120 pages of game related posts with 30 threads per page. The good games to grab and free game of the day posts start from about page 5 onwards. you'll not find as many over the last 20 pages or so as we stopped posting every day.

We used to post at least one free game with details and links every day and sometimes as many as 20 games in one day - usually on special days like Christmas, Easter and the anniversary of the project, which was started back in September 2008 I found the first post mentioning The suffering as well as several other games such as RIP3, Theseus: Return of the Hero, and Area 51. Which you can find via the following link;

giveawayoftheday.com/for…344

The Suffering was originally posted via the following link:
