Gamers: Here is the Link to The Top Five Freeware Site
I am not being particularly into games, if I play a game it is usually Literati (scrabble) that can be found on Yahoo. Yahoo offers the game in many languages including German and Italian. You can find people playing there who are word buffs and some that just want to make friends.
I have run across a site that offers you links to what they have chosen as the best freeware games on the internet.
There are actually more than 5 games here, if you look through the comments readers have left their suggestions.
If games appeal to you you may want to check out this site.
