Also the first Witcher.
Space Siege.
I'm going to keep rereleases away as far as possible because there are so many of them appearing now to ride on the anti-DRM wave (I've noticed that there's a fresh re-release of Diablo 2 Gold popping up in Germany now). Thanks anyway!
Not sure if this is wanted, but list of games on Steam which had their 3d part DRM patched out:

http://steamdrm.flibitijibibo.com/index.php?page=DRM_Lists/Removed_DRM

most still need Steam, off course, some do not, not sure which ones.
Here are a few more post-2008 DRM free releases I did purchase:
A Vampyre Story (UK version)
The Whispered World (UK version)
Penumbra Collection (UK version)
Trine (disc check; patches 1.06 - 1.09 remove the copy protection entirely)
Just remembered Amnesia: The Dark Descent got a US DRM free release from THQ.
Gothic Universe is also DRM-free. Not sure if it's worldwide or regionally distributed.

Phaidox: I think you might safely add Street Fighter x Tekken to the list (UK version) - no disk-check, no internet activation. I was surprised, to say the least.

jamyskis: Thanks! I'll check SFxT again and add the others.

Guess Capcom learned their lesson from the abysmal sales of SSF4: AE.
I'd really appreciate if someone checked it out. In Poland on retail boxes (which offer EN, CZ and PL version) it is written clearly that Internet Activation is required. So I am a bit confused here...

The exact same thing is written on the back of the UK retail box, but I decided to perform an experiment... I disconnected my computer from the internet before installing & launching the game. It worked, to my surprise, no "internet activation required/ disc required to play" window popped up.

Both World in Conflict and Silent Hunter 4 had their DRM removed with official patches.

I got the Gothic Universe collection, and while Gothic 1 & 2 are indeed DRM free, I had to download a crack or use the community patch to start Gothic 3. If I tried to start Gothic 3 directly, I was asked to put the DVD in the drive, even if it was already there.
The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition Collection (Europe, Disc Check)
Limbo (German Retail, DRM-free)
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed - Ultimate Sith Edition (Disc Check)
Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Republic Heroes (Disc Check)

P.S: Great thread.

LOL! G3 is the only one I didn't install, so I assumed it is DRM-free too. Thanks for clarifying.

I don't understand why. Do you only want DRM-free retail releases? Or do you want DRM free retail games? Also that there are so many of them should not be a problem but a source of happiness. Isn't it fine that we can now have so many DRM-free games on retail also as re-releases. I would add as many as possible. Maybe one could sort by year of original release. Maybe one could also put this list on the GOG-Wiki.

Oh, it's definitely a good thing. But the thing is, if I start including every pre-2008 game by virtue of their being DRM-free, the list will get very long and very unmanageable, so it's better to keep it to the games whose DRM freedom is not so apparent.

It should be obvious to all here that the vast majority of retail releases pre-2008 - with minor exceptions such as Half-Life 2 and Earth 2160 - are DRM-free.
