SUPER CRAZY GUITAR MANIAC DELUXE FOOOOOOOUR

Look up SCGMD4 on Google. It's pretty fun. I think you can download it.

Also, Sauerbraten. Cube 2 Sauerbraten, to be specific. It's a German freeware FPS with fast-paced gameplay and oh-man-this-is-so-effing-big mapmaking abilities.

Eversion. (There is a free version and a polished version that you can buy on steam if you already know of this game being on steam. Here's a link to the free version. http://zarat.us/tra/offline-games/eversion.html )

Edit: Oh shit I just realized my link was broken because of that stupid parenthesis, fixed now.

RE: Any good freeware games out there?
The Guitar Hero-esk one wasn't too good. The notes felt strange when I hit them, and the audio seemed a bit off from the video. I saw the effort, but it just didn't work for me. Happy wheels is common knowledge, and aside from a few of the levels, they are all the same, which makes it VERY tedious. Eversion wasn't that bad actually. Come on guys, step up yo games. *ucwatididtharteeheehee*

RE: Any good freeware games out there?
Even though I hate most browser games, I have to take my hat off for the Artix Entertainment games. Even though all of them have a membership option, they have a ton of free content.
IMO, the best one is the original Adventure Quest. I've been playing it since early 2005 (although never subscribed and have forgotten my old accounts) and it still amuses me. Free content is released every Thursday and there is already enough free content to keep you busy for months.

There's also AQW, their 'oldest' MMO (it's celebrating their 4th year iirc). The membership system is monthly, but aside from classes, early boss battles, couple exclusive releases every two months and some cosmetic items, you won't be losing much playing free. And it also has weekly releases.
I have resigned my wiki moderator post on March this year, so I can't say if they have changed much on the mechanics. If they haven't, you'd have some hard time starting to play from scratch, as their tutorial sucks.

RE: Any good freeware games out there?
Mangane seems veeeery silly. Though silly can be nice, if excecuted correctly. Though I just find it funny how your trying to catch your glasses from the sky for no reason. And cigarette breaks that punish you for smoking. SO SILLY. Though it seems like a fun and addictive game.

I never really been a fan of the AdventureQuest-esk games. I perfer the Final Fantasy style rpg's than anything else. THOOOUGH with that said, you should try out Improbable Island Symph. I think you might like it, if you enjoyed Adventure Quest.

RE: Any good freeware games out there?
I Wanna Be the Guy and I Wanna Be the Guy: Gaiden. They're platformers that are ridiculously hard. They're alright. I'd give the first one a 6/10. Gaiden gets a 3. They'd be a lot better if it wasn't for the fact that a lot of the deaths caused in the game are cheaply caused. I like difficulty in a game, but I like being able to know what I'm getting into as well. I hate walking forward a few steps and then having something just kill me because I didn't know I was supposed to jump.

Also, Super Mario Crossover is a fun flash game.

Super Cat Mario is pretty fun, I got HOOKED into Knytt and Knytt Stories back in 2007 or so and UGH that game series is just amazing and I hear that Niffilas (probably mucked that up) is working on a new Knytt game for Steam Greenlight.
