    There have been loads of games released in the public domain over the past 20 years or so, mainly on the commodore amiga and pc, which were the best you ever experienced.

    Here's some of mine all amiga games :-

    Masterblaster (bomberman clone)
    Tetris pro (Tetris clone)
    Super obliteration (pang clone)
    Scorched tanks (Scorched earth clone)
    Charr (Scorched earth clone with more shots and weapons)
    Deluxe galaga (galaga clone but better than any)
    Deluxe pacman (Superb pacman clone)

    My God we're starting to scrape the barrel in terms of "Best of threads". :D I think we should have a "Best Haggler thead" thread :).

    Anyway best freeware game has to be Doom IMO.

    Nothing wrong with a bit of scraping to keep the other gaming chat section ticking over, next time tho i'll miss out the word "best" i must admit it's getting a bit monotonous :D

    I used to have an old DOS game called Druglord. It was great fun and basically involved you buying and selling drugs whilst flying round the USA. From time to time you would get offered larger coats to carry more of weapons to defend yourself.

    The best bit was hearing senior management in meetings shout, "gawd have you seen the price of coke".

    I was most upset when I found it would not run under Vista
