    What is the ultimate free game to download?

    Any type of game. Good time killer.

    Also my friend played this game earlier this year where the object was to build army's and defend your town or base while attacking and taking over other bases. Kind of like Risk but.. well, virtual. Any ideas what it could have been?

    Was going to recommend this. Need details? go to www.steampowered.com download the Steam game client and from there you can download Team Fortress 2. It's a team/class based FPS.

    TF2 for sure. You won't find any other free game with so many players, such high quality and constant updates.

    Of course, Team Fortress after Steam's recent decision to make it free...but for a TRUE freeware game, try Battle for Wesnoth - hours and hours of replay value..!

    Wolfenstein is very similar to TF2 I heard. I personally play TF2. Wolfenstein takes place in WWII I think, so if you like that time frame more, then go ahead.

    Team Fortress 2 by a country mile. There are other good ones but it is head and shoulders above them.

    No. You do however get some things people that play through free to play don't if you purchase one item from the Mann Co. store.

    If you buy a item in the Mann Co Store you get a premium account.

    Got TF2! What about in the area of MMO RPG's or even just regular RPG's? Anything good there? I know theres a few out there but reviews seem to vary.

    Thanks for all the suggestions!

    I really can't think of free stuff. Keep an eye out for mass effect 1 and 2 on steam or direct2drive. They are on sale fairly regularly.

    WoW is f2p up til level 20 haha.. umm LotR online I believe is F2P also... there was a ton of content in that before it went f2p so I'm sure that'll give you a good amount of game time.

    Savage 2 is free. You should be able to create an account with nothing but an email address.

    Yes, you can pay $10 for a Prime account, but you certainly don't need to. It gets you access to two extra equipment slots; however, I played for months without it.

    PM your email address to me and I'll send you a referral email. I can't recall if that gets you anything special, but it will probably take you directly to an account/download page.

    I've made an account on the site and I logged in, but when i try and go to the download page i still get the message that says

    "Thank you for your interest in downloading Savage 2: A Tortured Soul!

    Before you can enjoy Savage 2, you will need to create a player account. You have the option of playing Savage 2 for free, or upgrading to a Prime account for just $9.99!

    You can create the account on this website on the Create Account Page, or create your account directly from the game after you download it."

    And this gives me that list of off site DL's :confused:
