    ZSNES

    [​IMG]

    "ZSNES is a Super Nintendo emulator programmed by zsKnight and _Demo_. On April 2, 2001 the ZSNES project was GPL'ed and its source released to the public. It currently runs on Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, and DOS. Remember that this is a public beta so don't expect this to run on your machine."

    Hands-down the best SNES emulator.

    Hidden & Dangerous Deluxe

    [​IMG]

    "Hidden and Dangerous represents the new breed of tactical, real-life, first-person shooters. During World War II from 1943 to 1945, your four-man commando squad has been assigned to infiltrate dangerous enemy territory. Over 23 campaigns, you'll face deceptively challenging AI as you use your arsenal of real-world weapons to put and end to this threat. This FULL FREE GAME contains the original award-winning Hidden & Dangerous, the Devil's Bridge expansion pack, plus the game editor."

    To gather attention to the recently released sequel, Hidden & Dangerous Deluxe has been released for free in its entirety. This game requires Windows 98 or later, or runs perfectly in Cedega on Linux.

    Rockstar Games Classics Vol. 1-3

    http://www.rockstargames.com/classics/

    GTA - Wild Metal - GTA2
    [​IMG]

    "Respect is everything. In 1999, Rockstar Games and Rockstar North (then known as DMA Design) furthered the groundbreaking gameplay concepts established just two years prior in the original Grand Theft Auto - with the release of GTA2. GTA2 expanded on the top-down, open-ended crime world gameplay formula with a host of new features including the advent of multiple rival gangs – seven, to be exact, including the Yakuza, Scientists, Looneys, Rednecks, Zaibatsu, the Russian Mob and Hare Krishnas. Earn your respect with each gang. Reap the benefits with all manner of shady work-for-hire gigs contracted your way. And climb your way to the top of the criminal pile.

    Now, longtime Grand Theft Auto fans can revisit this classic entry in the series - and new jacks who missed out on this early franchise title can further discover Grand Theft Auto’s roots - absolutely free. GTA2 has been completely optimized for play on modern PCs and is available gratis for all registrants to the Rockstar Games mailing list (rest assured your information will not be shared with any third parties, you will only receive information from Rockstar). Simply fill out the form below and check your email for a direct link to the file (353 MB .zip file, includes install .exe, readme .txt file, and a .pdf of the original PC game manual)."


    Grand Theft Auto 1, Wild Metal, and Grand Theft Auto 2 -- all full-version, all free to download. These are Windows games, although both GTA games run perfectly in Linux using WINE or Cedega.

    Bang! Howdy

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    "Bang! Howdy is fast-paced tactical strategy in a wacky Wild West world."

    ...That's a tongue-twister. This game is turn-based but has a RTS feel, with some role-playing elements thrown in for good measure. A steampunk-themed multi-player game, the more ranked battles you win against other human players, the more cash you get and the more unique units you can recruit.

    It seems to be totally supported with marketing (they sell your info to marketing research companies), so you might want to sign up with the email address you usually use to sign up for things that'll spam you. As a result, you must be at least 13 to sign up.

    This game is cross platform: Runs on Windows, Linux & Mac equally well.

    Streets of Rage Remake (Win32)

    This is for anyone who used to own a Sega Megadrive and enjoyed playing any of the three Streets Of Rages games available for it! Even if you have never played the original games, you'll still get lots of entertainment from this old school beat 'em up!

    This game draws content from all three games, and includes new characters, levels, effects and hidden content.

    A must have for any Streets Of Rage fan!

    Here's something for old fashioned point-and-click adventure game fans:

    AGDInteractive: King's Quest 1 & 2 VGA remakes. And they're still trying to finish Quest for Glory 2 VGA.

    Savage

    SAVAGE: The Battle for Newerth

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    From Wikipedia: "Savage: The Battle for Newerth is a fantasy/science fiction computer game that combines aspects of Real-time strategy and First-person shooter into one game. The producers of the game define it as a 'Real Time Strategy Shooter', or 'RTSS'. It takes place in the far future when man has (after an apocalypse) rebuilt society, but is threatened by intelligent beasts. On September 1, 2006, S2Games made the game free to download on its website.
    ...
    "The Savage Full Enhancement is a community expansion package that improves netcode, improves the GUI, and adds other features such as 3 or 4 team gameplay, duel maps, capture the flag and approximately twice as many configurable options. It also prevents many exploits and cheats. The mod was formerly known as the Savage Enhancement Project before its final version in January, 2007. It adds many game improving changes, including lag compensation, weather effects, as well as many other features. On June 27th, 2007, the Newerth community site announced that it would be responsible for maintaining the project, as well as adding additional features"

    • SFE: Main Page -- Here you can download the stand-alone, pre-patched version of Savage for Linux and Windows, or the SFE patch for Mac.
    • S2Games -- The official S2Games website. Here you can download the unpatched version of the game, and additionally check out the forthcoming release of the sequel.
    If you haven't played Savage yet, don't miss out. This game runs natively on Linux and Windows. There is a Mac client also, but the resale rights are owned by a 3rd-party port house, and the Mac port isn't freeware. You may be able to pick it up elsewhere (on amazon?), and then patch with SFE. Or, you could just multi-boot your Mac with Linux. :) Attached is an icon I made for Mac or Linux... enjoy.
