There are some freeby games available at

http://www.funorb.com

but most are pay to play / free demos.

Arcanists is pretty fun, its like Worms but with magic.

Disclaimer: I have a vested interest in linking to funorb, but meh.

EDIT:
Nobodies added the ad-supported Ubisoft trio yet?

Rayman: Raving Rabbids
Far Cry
Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time

Are they working again? Because I had Far Cry installed, but then one day the game said the promotion ended and wouldn't load the game anymore.

The Underdogs is an abandonware warez site, and it's been word filtered for years.

Dunno tbh, I already own all of them (albeit rayman on the wii and PoP on the PS2).

Theres some kind of message on the downloads page for them about requiring an ubisoft login to use them but... I dunno. I shouldn't have thought it was worth much money to them stopping them being free, but then again I guess they did just sign up to release all their old shovelware on Steam recently...

I see GTA1 is listed up there as a freeby, but GTA 2 is a legit freebie now too, so is Wild Metal (although that's shit)

I agree this should be a sticky.

I've got 2 DVDs full of free games, will take a look at them soon.

Carom3D - great snooker game with online multiplayer
Tyrian 2000
Tux Racer - quite fun, has some great tracks and a track editor
Sonic Robo Blast 2 - awesome fanmade game. In my opinion it sets the standards for what fan-made games should be.
MechCommander
MechCommander 2
MechCommander Gold
I'm O.K - designed by Jack Thompson; the title is a pun on the main character's name, Osaki Kim.
Enemy Nations, by Windward Studios
Dink Smallwood
LinCity

RTS:
S.W.I.N.E
Warzone 2100 Resurrection
Glest
FreeCol
Freeciv
Crimson Fields
C-evo


FPS:
Doom 64: Absolution - it requires an iwad, but you can use the one from FreeDOOM instead of the one from DOOM II
OpenArena
Sauerbraten (Cube 2)
Tremulous
Warsow

Aaaaand... I'm too tired/lazy to list the rest.

Open source clone / remake of Colonization.

Very very nice version of it too, plays like I remember it, the only problem I've found is it doesn't tell you what each city improvement actually does before building it, but any Colonization fans will already know.

Also, Team Fortress 2 is free this weekend on Steam.
TF2 is fuckawesome.
