Considering the economy, I thought I would take a chance to focus on some of the places you can play free games.
1) Pogo.com - This should be your first stop. There is even a spark group for this site and it draws quite the crowd. The site has lots of games to play for free w/ limited ads. You can earn tokens to use on prizes or to upgrade your avatar. There is also a yearly membership option that lets you play more games and takes away the ads.
2) Facebook. More and more games are showing up here and they seem to be getting better. Farmville anyone? That one alone is the fastest grower on there.
3) Gametap.com. Lots of free games to play, including several past console favorites. One of the best free games to play on there is Psyconaughts, which is one of two games that Yahtzee of the "Zero Puncuation" show has ever gave a glowing review to. There are also paid subscriptions for more games, but the plenty of free ones will keep you busy for a while.
4) Steam. This is a free software to install and some of the games are free (Track Mania is the best one). They have other games that are cheap and some that are full price. It is an easy way to install and manage your games on a PC.
5) Demos. I've been having a great time playing the Lost Planet 2 co-op demo on Xbox. You and friends with the free demo can play through a multi-player experience of taking down a baddie. Other demos can be found on the PC, PSN, etc. etc.
Does anyone else already play games at the above sites? Have you found good sources elsewhere? What have your experiences been?
