    Hey everyone,

    I REALLY did my homework and search the forum thoroughly, so please don't flame me. :p
    Anyway, what are some freeware 3D games that LOOKS GOOD? Perhaps something that will actually utilize the full potential of 8600GT. Any kind of game is fine. I know that I might be asking for the impossible since game development is a pretty costly process. I guess cheap games will do as well.

    Thanks!

    I will keep a list of the games suggested so far for others who are interested as well (most should be vista compatible):
    War rock
    FEAR combat
    Wolfenstein : Enemy Territory
    Trackmania Nations
    War§ow
    Silkroad Online
    Cube & Sauerbraten
    America's Army
    Command And Conquer Gold Edition
    Tom Clancy Ghost Recon DEAD! Anyone know a working link?
    Far Cry
    Prince Of Persia Sands Of Time
    Rayman Raving Rabids
    BMW M3 Challenge

    It seems that ads in Far Cry, Of Persia Sands of Time, etc. can be eliminated by running FRAPS.

    lol...I'm horrible at lying. You've no idea how, hmm, sensitive my parents are.
    I'm going to have a hard time convince them that the blood is actually tomato sauce or something.

    Wow, I give the deepest regrets for every good game that you are missing because of your parents.

    Wolfenstein : Enemy Territory, WorSaw, Silkroad Online i recommend.

    WorSaw has a no blood option and silkroad online is a WoW type game that doesnt really have blood in it.

    Unfortuantely there arent alot of free games that fully utilize the 8600m except maybe FEAR Combat which you said that you arent allowed to play.

    Thanks...
    I'm actually tempted to play FEAR now after being humiliated by you guys...
    Are those games vista compatible?

    Thanks a bunch.

    By the way, why is FEAR rated for 18 and above? How "bad" is it?

    Blood are fine as long as it's not too excessive.
    I guess I should say that my parents isn't THAT picky. However they don't like R rated games and stuff like that.

    I updated my original post to keep track of the titles. Thanks for the suggestions.

    Many of my neighbors and old classmates were in a very similar position. These days, most games rated M have a gore or blood filter option that will turn of those aspects of the violence. It really ruins the visceral experience when you take it away, but vicera don't add anything to gameplay, so I don't see why you couldn't use those options. I think F.E.A.R. MIGHT have a gore off option, etc.

    Hmmm...Free... Eve-Online has a free trial! :)

    you already payed for america's army (taxes).

    it has a huge production value, and a steep learning curve. you literally have to sit in 3d classes and take tests before you are allowed to play online. its probably one of the most realistic combat simulators around. definitely the best free one.
