I added a few games (Bontago, GeneRally, Scorcher3D, Ragdoll Matrix).

This shared document listing is really a good idea, i see lots of contributions being made.

I added Survivor: The living dead, and discovered OpenClonk. YES!

This game could honestly give out hand jobs for free and people would still bitch.

Discovered on that list Strange Adventures in Inifinite Space that i never hear about before.

From what i read it became free in 2009 , and after toying a bit with it, i'm rather impressed by the simplicity and replayability that makes it a great game to play when you don't have much time in your hands.

That's because people are 'tards and make new posts instead of Necroing.

I think a might start a trend that whenever someone makes a new post and claims they know there's an older one, I will necro the older one.

I'm an ass like that about things I dislike.

This may be an odd question, but I swear you were the one who disliked it when people necro'd?

Or were you the guy all for it and it was some other guy?

+1 to stickying

Also, it would be cool if you could include the basic requirements for it

one alternative to the stickying, necro debate would be to further sub divide this part of the forum. Rather than simply ' other games' section, you could have a series of sub forums by game genre; RTS, 4x, shooter, RPG etc. This could be combined with a sticky thread or two at the top. The thread turnover in each subforum would be lower so popular threads would remain on page 1 for that forum longer and less likly to become 'dead' to be necroed, or have inferior new threads produced

I haven't been able to get any vomit this release. Not any I can pick up, at any rate.
Swans, too. Swans are complete bastards.

Well, should just make a poll honestly, to see how many want a sticky. After gathering data we will be able to see if the idea is sound enough to be presented to Toady.

...Yeaahhhh

I think I prefer a list of games that was created by B12ers instead of a list on a forum I havn't heard of.

also, +1 for sticky

Added Adventures in the Galaxy of Fantabulous wonderment. Just needs any suitable subgenres I can't think of.

Search shows that it might even be a first for this forum, I haven't found any posts about it. It's a Yahtzee adventure game, quite fun.

I forward the idea of sticky. I'll see if I can locate any others... AnywhereBB.com has an outdated freeware list like this, I think there's some entries on it that aren't here yet.

There's lots of free game lists out there, whole websites devoted to it. But the Bay12 Other Games section tends to have some superb suggestions, and there's very little in the way of crappy games being suggested here. So this seemed a little bit more fitting.

Yeah I think the main difference between this list and the sites devoted to compiling free games is that games on our list essentially come with a B12 recommendation, so at least someone here likes it.

The moment the lever was pulled, somebody's pet kitten stepped onto the bridge. I read somewhere that if a cat falls more than 11 stories, it instinctively flares its legs out to increase air resistance. This slows it down enough to stick the landing with relatively minor injuries. In Dwarf Fortress, apparently, cats don't do that.

Can someone put "duty calls" on there? I haven't used an online spreadsheet and I don't want to mess it up.
