GAMES

Soldat - http://www.soldat.prv.pl/
---
Soldat is a 2D shooter in which the quickest and most effective way to describe it would be a mix of Counter-Strike, Halo, Tribes, and Super Smash Brothers mixed into one crazy package. So, you have a jetpack that helps you get around the level, and a quite a few different weapons to dish out the destruction with, plus a grenade button for some quick kills. There is also quite a few different modes and settings to play with, including good 'ol CTF, classic Deathmatch, and plenty more. The biggest beef I have with this game, however, is the weapon balancing. For the most part it isn't really that bad, but when you're playing CTF against a whole bunch of grenade launcher whores, you'll see what I'm saying. Also there is a map maker you can download from the site which is fairly easy to use, so you could have some fun with that as well. I highly recommend this game to all.

Gunz: The Duel - http://www.gunzonline.com/
---
Gunz is yet another game that I've heard is great, but really don't know too much about myself. I downloaded it, then couldn't even get on to a server and didn't bother with it after that. From what I've been told, it's a massively multiplayer online shooting game that has all kinds of crazy Matrix shit. Check out the website for more information.

MapleStory - http://www.mapleglobal.com/
---
MapleStory is a 2D MMORPG. To be honest, I really don't know much about this game. I played for about 15 minutes and stopped playing right there. A bit too repetitive for me, but I know a lot of people who play and enjoy it. If you want to learn more about the game, you're going to have to look on the site, which can only be seen on Internet Explorer.

Kal Online - http://www.kalonline.com/
---
Okay, I think you get the point that I'm not too big on MMO games. This is another free MMORPG. I played it, too repetitive for my tastes. Once again, if you're at all interested, check out the site.

Gunbound - http://www.softnyx.net/
---
Gunbound is pretty much a free version of the classic Worms games, but less fun. If you don't own a Worms game but need your fix of wormage, it really isn't too bad of a game. Don't be expecting it to be an equal to the classic game, or else you'll ruin the entire thing for yourself.

America's Army - http://www.americasarmy.com/
---
America's Army is your pretty much your standard realistic shooter, but you have to go through training bullshit before you can go online. Yay! I've heard it can be quite realistic, though.

Tribes - http://files.filefront.com/tribes+fu.../fileinfo.html
---
The classic PC shooter Tribes... for free! What have you got to lose except a small bit of harddrive space? Give it a go.

Quake Construct - http://mods.moddb.com/5373/
---
Construct is pretty much Gmod, but can play on computers that couldn't even dream of playing Gmod. No advanced physics or any of that kind of jazz, but still good fun.

War Rock - http://www.warrock.net/
---
Yet another game I haven't played, but has gotten quite a bit of praise from what I've seen some members say on facepunch. Check it out.

Counter-Strike 2D - http://www.cs2d.com/ X
---
Counter-Strike 2D is pretty much Counter-Strike mixed with the first two GTA games. Give it a go.

Paintball 2 - http://mods.moddb.com/2155/Paintball-2/
---
I remember my friend recommending that game to me. It's a paintball game that runs on an updated Quake 2 engine. Tons of wacky sounds. Should be fun for a least a little while.

Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory - http://games.activision.com/games/wolfenstein/
---
This is a free, multiplayer-only game, released by the good folks at id, software that is set in the Wolfenstein universe. I've had very little expereience with this game, but it seems quite nice for a free game. Check it out!

Knight Online - http://www.knight-online.com.my/ or https://www.knightonlineworld.com/
---
Knight Online is yet another free MMORPG. I've never played it, but I've heard a few people say that they really enjoy it. Check out the site for more information.

Nexuiz - http://www.nexuiz.com/
---
Nexuiz is a fast-paced, futuristic deathmatch game that is very much along the lines of Quake 3. With the time that I've spent with it, it's quite entertaining, with some nice graphics to boot. I'm also impressed with the game's quality, considering the fact that you're not paying anything. I highly recommend you give this game a look!

Ogame - http://www.ogame.org/
---
Ogame is a futuristic browser-based game. While I have not played it, apparently many facepunch members are into it. For more information, check out the website.

Stick Online - http://www.bigsnoot.net/dustnet/index.html
---
Stick Online is a black and white, sidescrolling MMORPG. Once again, this is not a game that I've played, but it's popular here on facepunch. Check out the website for more information!

FreeOrion - http://www.freeorion.org/index.php/Main_Page
---
FreeOrion is a free alternative to the game Master of the Orion 3, A galactic conquest game. Be sure to give the like a look!

Enemy Nations - http://www.windwardreports.com/enemy_nations.htm
---
Enemy Nations is an old RTS which was apparently "ahead" of the times. It feels like Civilization mixed with Red Alert. It's now free via their website.

GTA/GTA2/Wild Metal - http://www.rockstargames.com/classics/gta.html
---
The original 2 GTA games are available for free downloads via the Rockstar website. If you haven't played the original 2, they're a lot like GTA 3, but with a top-down view. Not quite as fun as GTA 3, but that's not to say they're bad. Also, Wild Metal is available, but I've never heard of it or played it. Click the link for more information and the download links.

Noctis - http://anywherebb.com/noctis.html
---
Noctis is a 3D space exporation game which apparently has a very large scale. Billions of stars you can explore and you can even meet different life-forms.

Madness Combat Interactive - http://mail.rochester.edu/~mabernet/...sh/madness.zip
---
Madness Combat Interactive is a single-player, side-scrolling shooter that is based off the Madness Combat flash animations. This game is very hard, and could totally use some cover... but it could be fun for a little while.

Cube - http://sourceforge.net/projects/cube/
---
Cube is free shooter much along the lines of the Quake games. While I don't know too much about it, I've heard it has a very unique mapping system.

Sauerbraten - http://sauerbraten.sourceforge.net/
---
Sauerbraten is another version of Cube that is currently still in the works.

Block Land - http://www.blockland.us/index.asp
---
Block Land is a Lego building game that I've been told by some that is really entertaining. The graphics don't look like they're that hot, but gameplay is what matters, right? Check out the website for more information. http://rtb.mocheeze.com/download.htm Return to Blockland mod for Block Land which is said to have many nice features that are not in the original version

Hell of Sand - www.onemorelevel.com/hellofsand.php
---
While I don't usually throw web-based games up on this list, this game is definitely bad enough (As in good enough, because I'm not cool like 'dat) to hand with the big boys. Here is what Canesfan had to say about it: "That game will really hold you on for at least three days. It has realistic physics, such as oil burns really fast, water makes plants grow, but if you mix salt with the water, it won't affect plant growth. You can make zombies to kill, and set up in random emergency situations. You can also create sand, and wax, which burns slowly, and slowly accumulates if it burns over something."

The Ur-Quan Masters - http://sc2.sourceforge.net/
---
I don't know anything about this game, so I'm going to quote Cablekid: "Cool and fun game based off of the sourcecode for Star Control 2. Explore the galaxy, find aliens and make your own fleet to battle the evil empire of aliens or persuade them to join your fleet." Sounds pretty neat if you ask me. Check the above link for more.

Planeshift - http://www.planeshift.it/main_01.html
---
Another free MMORPG. Yeah... I'm not exactly sure what to say about it.

Wyvern (Recommended by Game Informer Magazine) - http://www.cabochon.com/
---
Wyvern is another free MMORPG that I got out of an old Game Informer article (Yay for Mod World). While it may have very, very (very) outdated graphics, it's said to have some nice character customization, and plenty of dungeons to master. Check out the link above for more information

FreeCiv - http://www.freeciv.org/index.php/Freeciv
---
FreeCiv is a free, open-source game based off the Civilization series. Civilization is a turn-based strategy game where you take control of a nation and win in several different ways. Check out the link above for more information on FreeCiv.

Carnage Blender 2 - http://www.carnageblender.com/
---
I don't know much, if anything, about this game, but I've been told that it's a turn-based strategy game of some sort. Check out the website for more information.

Ground Control - http://www.fileplanet.com/promotions/groundcontrol/
---
The RTS game Ground Control, has been released for free to promote Ground Control 2. Check out the above link for more information.

StepMania - http://www.stepmania.com/
---
StepMania is pretty much free DDR for your computer! But with this, you can put on your own music and jazz like that. If you like DDR, check this out. Keep in mind, that you cannot download a dancepad.

Crack Attack - http://www.nongnu.org/crack-attack/index.html
---
While it may sound like some sort of crazy druggy busting game, it's actually a clone of the classic SNES puzzle game - "Tetris Attack", which is not to be mistaken for Tetris. They both have very different concepts. In my opinion, Tetris Attack is the most addictive puzzle game of all time. While Crack Attack may not have all the neat modes from Tetris Attack intact (Haha), it still has the core gameplay, and that's what really counts.

Orbiter - http://orbit.medphys.ucl.ac.uk/orbit.html
---
ORBITER is a free flight simulator that goes beyond the confines of Earth's atmosphere. Launch the Space Shuttle from Kennedy Space Center to deploy a satellite, rendezvous with the International Space Station or take the futuristic Delta-glider for a tour through the solar system - the choice is yours. But make no mistake - ORBITER is not a space shooter. The emphasis is firmly on realism, and the learning curve can be steep. Be prepared to invest some time and effort to brush up on your orbital mechanics background.
