Top Free PC Game Websites
Reloaded provides is a free computer game site dedicated to remakes of classic/retro video games and community made freeware games. Layout and navigation of Reloaded are very nice with screenshots and descriptions of all games listed in its directory.
The site also offers information and links for many older retail games that have been seemingly “abandoned” by the original copyright holder.
08. Ocean of Games
Of all the free PC game websites detailed here, Ocean of Games is probably the most controversial and questionable sites around. The reason for this is due to the fact that many of the games on Ocean of Games are newer releases and have not been made available as freeware. While the site offers download links to many new releases, they most likely do not have the permission of original copyright holders to distribute freely.
Ocean of Games homepage lists the latest games that have been posted for download but then also includes genre-based categories and search functionality.
07. Liberated Games
Liberated Games is a website dedicated to cataloging and providing information on full commercial games that have been released as freeware by their original copyright holders.
Home of the Underdogs is a freeware/abandonware site that offers a vast number of titles for download. It is a virtual gold mine for many classic out-of-print games and has grown to a library of over 5,000 games. The list of freeware game titles is fairly impressive and the site is updated quarterly. Home of the Underdogs has gone through a number of fan supported redesigns and relaunches leading to multiple sites that host some (but not all) of the games found on the original.
It also appears that the latest edition of Home of the Underdogs no longer provides game downloads, instead, it provides details on thousands of games and then a search option to find where you can obtain the games.
