I wanted to create a good contribution to the forum cause I got such a warm welcome here! 8)

I will update if you find a game that isn't covered in the above links, or if you have one that you think should be on this page, and not indirectly through another list, then post your recommendation and I'll add as soon as I see it.

See you on the battlefield!

EDIT: Recommendation Rules
All recommendations cannot violate forum rules.

If a site has any objectionable content, either linked to or on the site, don't reccomend it.

Abandonware is allowed, but there must be a warning that the site is abandonware, and the site must follow ESA notices. (You can tell if it does if it doesn't allow you to download certain games)

If you are unsure about any particular site, PM me.

Looked good, so I added it. Also added the Spore Experience section, for games that share an aspect of Spore.

At the risk of being punched, there's Runescape.

And I know a reliable autoclicker if you need it.

It may be just me but i think there is nothing bad about adding abandonware.

Well, abandonware is fine, its just I dont want to start adding them until Gaming Steve gives me the Ok to do so.

Until then, there are plenty of freeware games out now.

I like to check this site frequently: http://www.jayisgames.com

A list of lots of easy-to-pick-up, casual webgames, disguised as a blog. 
Use those talents you have. You will make it. You will give joy to the world. Take this tip from nature: The woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except those who sang best.

Sorry if this is off topic, but I've never received that complaint before. I do include a lot of images on the main page, and it's a hefty 940KB. For anyone on anything other than broadband connection, the download times for a first-time download of a page that size are indeed a bit high.

I can reduce the number of entries I post on the main page to make it a bit better for first time visitors. Thanks for the feedback. ;)

And thanks, Mike, for the mention.  =)

And Steve, I've been enjoying all the great Spore coverage. Keep up the great work with the site!
