Alright, I'll try to keep updating this list as I find more games. But here's what I got so far.

<b><A HREF="http://www.tacticsarena.com">Tactics Arena Online</A></b>
<font size=1>By :: Flash Player Studios, INC</font>

<i>This is a fun, free online strategy/tactics game, not unlike Final Fantasy Tactics, and other games like that. If you are into these games, I highly suggest checking this game out.</i>

Free? :: YES
Requirements :: Requires Flash Player 6
Client :: Browser

<i>NOTE :: You can pay a $5 (USD) fee monthly to gain extra units, and other benefits, but it is not required to play. More info on the site.</i>

<b><A HREF="http://www.sgalaxy.com">Shattered Galaxy</A></b>
<font size=1>By :: Nexon</font>

<i>A futuristic strategy game on a Massively Multiplayer scale. A bit weird to get used to, but once you do, it's very fun. There are 4 different classes of units to play as, and 3 different sides to play on.</i>

Free? :: YES*
Requirements :: <A HREF="http://www.sgalaxy.com/gameinfo/body_info_3.html">HERE</A>
Client :: EXE file, downloaded from site

<i>* :: The game is free, but if you don't pay the monthly fee (10 dollars) you get 3/4 the experience from battles that a subscriber would. The game is still highly enjoyable with this limitation, however.</i>

<b><A HREF="http://www.darkages.com">Dark Ages</A></b>
<font size=1>By :: Nexon</font>

<i>This MMORPG looks very simplistic and outdated, but hidden inside is a very, VERY deep game, with a lot to see and do. There are 5 basic classes you can be in the game, with extra hidden classes unlocked later on.</i>

Free? :: TRIAL
Requirements :: <A HREF="http://www.darkages.com/2002/download/system.html">HERE</A>
Client :: EXE file, downloaded from site

<i>TRIAL :: You can play the game on a free trial until you either..

A) Play for 10 days
B) Reach level 21

After that you must pay the monthly fee of 10 dollars a month if you wish to continue using that character.</i>

<b><A HREF="http://games.activision.com/games/wolfenstein">Wolfenstein Enemy Territory</A></b>
<font size=1>By :: Activision</font>

<i>A very cool First-Person-Shooter. Used to be an expansion for Return To Castle Wolfenstein, but is now a Stand-Alone game. Good graphics and gameplay make this an excellent game if your PC can handle it.</i>

Free? :: YES
Requirements :: Most games require Java
Client :: ??

Have you ever played the game Infantry Online?

That was an insanely awesome free online game. It was basically like... it had that FPS aspect, where you basically run around and kill people and stuff... but it wasn't a FPS. It was an overhead view, and you could kill people and do team games and stuff, and whenever you killed people you got money to buy armor/weapons etc

That was a ****ing sick game. Then Sony like, bought it out and it turned to crap. :(

I think I played that game before... or one like it. My friend was hooked on this one game that was with ships where you shot other people down and stuff and got money. That might've been SubSpace Online though :o Not sure :o
