I think that some freeware games are comparable to commercial ones. But thats just me... :whistle:

I voted "depend" due to the fact that Freewares and Sharewares are not the same thing at all!

Freewares are games that are legal to distribute freely. On the other hand Sharewares are only a glorified "demo" game and is not worth at all our attention. I prefer to go for whole completed games instead.

I think we should keep it simple:
No warez, no oldwarez, no demos, no shareware, no freeware, and no demonware(whatever that means!) just old gems k: :angel:
