Age of Empires I - [Official Site]
While I truly enjoy the level to which Age of Empires II took the series, I can't help but appreciate the original game as well. While it clearly lacks some very useful features present in the sequel, Age of Empires can still be a fun way to start from a small tribe gathering fruit, and build your way up to an empire wreaking havoc on small helpless peasanst who were once like you.

  • Age of Empires II: Age of Kings - [Official Site]
    I can't even begin to count the hours i've spent playing this game. And even before I had the full version I played this demo over and over again, building my kingdom differently each time. This game series is great, and in my opinion AoE II is the better of the bunch.

  • Age of Wonders - [Official Site]
    This excellent turn-based strategy RPG is one of my old favorites. This demo offers you a few of the options as far as being human, dwarf, dark elf, etc., and allows you access to a rather large map. You recruit characters of your alignment, and each can travel a certain distance during each turn. I was addicted to this demo when it was first released.

  • Dope Wars (by Ben Webb) - [Official Site]
    Back in 1999 Ben Webb was kind enough to release this version of dope wars under the GPL. Ever since, numerous clones have emerged, some of which have the audacity to charge a fee to play their (always inferior) version of the game. This version is and always will be free, and is the best version anyway, with free online play via the dopewars servers.

  • Hover
    This game used to be packaged with Windows 95. I thought i'd offer it up here for retro purposes. You basically ride around in a hovercar, and shoot at your enemy. Pretty fun if you're bored, and apparantly it still works on XP or Vista. I figured it was free to Windows users anyway, so it should be ok to post here. If anyone knows otherwise please contact me.
