Does anyone know any good freeware games for PC with names that start with letter F?

For the Freeware Games that start with F, Freeciv and Freecol are nice games.

Any games similar to feel, difficulty or total insanity to Alien Soldier?

Closest I can think is Gunstar Heroes, but if you've played Alien Soldier then you probably already know about Gunstar, don't you?

Uhhh...maybe Metal Slug? It has that sort of "shots going everywhere have to dodge everything at once" feel to it, and it also has balls to the wall difficulty.

I've been wanting to stockpile my Gameboy collection, as i've picked up my Game Boy Advance Sp again. What are some good games for the Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Gameboy Advance? List all you can think of. (I have most of Nintendo's flagship titles, but if you can think of any obscure ones that i missed, say so)

Hmm, Game Boy/Advance...

For Game Boy:

  • Donkey Kong - Does this count as a flagship? Either way, it's a neat little puzzler.

For GBA:

  • Jurassic Park III: Park Builder - Basically, you get to actually build Jurassic Park and run it in this sim game, and it is hardcore wonderful.
  • Wario Ware Inc.: Mega Microgame$: Again, not sure if flagship, but either way it was the very first Wario Ware, so that's gotta count for something.

GBC...I rather like the old Harry Potter 1-2 game for GBC...pretty fun RPG...

Any good PC Freeware wide-open sandbox / open-world (something GTA like or Elder Scrolls like) games?

Also need some recommendation for some good western RPG...free ones that is...

Tobal No. 1 (developed by the same company a few years earlier) has a mode like that. It's very hard to find...you might wind up paying $70-100 for it on eBay.

What are some good RPG games for the DS, both Fantasy themed and otherwise unorthodox?

And well, any other kind of game you highly recommend for DS?

I guess Etrian Odyssey (especially the sequel), but it may not be up your alley.

Any emulators that can be used on a DS? looking for NES, Game Boy (Color?), and SNES and Genesis if that's even possible.

Does anyone know of any particularly unusual/creative JRPGs with strong characterization? I'm thinking of Persona 3 FES and TWEWY as examples of what I'm looking for. (I have pretty much every Nintendo console and a PS 2.)

EDIT: ^^^^^ Definitely The World Ends With You for incredibly good original RPG. I also enjoyed Bowser's Inside Story, but TWEWY is pretty much a must-play.

jEnesisDS is a good Genesis emulator. I used it to play all the way through Quackshot  *

, Ecco, and Sonic, and only had some sound problems when I loaded a savestate. Oh, and you have to move the screen around, because for some reason they didn't try to fit the screen.

Lameboy is very good, no real problems, except for some reason I had to create a savestate to save my progress. Very odd.

You're not going to find any good SNES emulators, probably not ever. The best I could do was get Secret Of Mana to run a little bit, but there were way way too many graphical issues.

Any good 3D beat em ups? I have each Playstation, a N64, Dreamcast, and a DS if that applies.
