Same idea as "More abandonware," but without the use of the iffy term. The term seems to have much confusion attached, but most "knowledgeable" internet users agree abandonware is not really legal. So I just chose to add the same idea of that wish with a different title; I understand if it's deleted, because this is not /really/ necessary.

If you're saying "free" as in "pirated but not actively sued", then the whole ultima series was freely distributed among fans for years after EA basically abandoned the series and forgot about it. It was never in danger of being forgotten or lost in time. Though the source codes were lost.

Abandonia was hosting Ultima 7 Complete, before GOG got the license to sell it, then it started linking to GOG because it's their policy. So having it on GOG didn't really benefit fans or the original devs. And if they were 100% free all the time, they won't benefit GOG too.

Impractical, pointless. Unless it's for really obscure unloved games from the past.

There are a ton of old classics (ex-commercial) that have been released as freeware in recent years. I am disappointed that GOG does not seem to be very interested in bringing them here. Doing so would not directly increase revenue, but would indirectly do so since more people would come to the site for the freebies. Also, it would give long-forgotten games more exposure, which is what GOG is all about. All at minimal cost/effort to GOG.

@ tfishell When you say 'freeware', do you mean ex-commercial titles only? Or did you mean free Indie titles as well?

I would love to see more ex-commercial titles on GOG. For a few ex-commercial titles that are now legally freeware see:http://scummvm.org/downloads/#extras http://www.remaininplay.com/ Wikipedia provides a list of ex-commercial titles (with hyper links). See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_commercial_video_games_released_as_freeware I add that most of these titles are not worth playing.

There are a lot of freeware games available already, but it would certainly be nice to be able to gather them all here. http://liberatedgames.com/gamelisting.php

@Dassie14 Weird historical reasons, most likely: for some reason, IV has been made freely downloadable before. http://www.thatfleminggent.com/ultima/u4download.html

could you make Ultima 1-5(or 6) free because I dont see why Ultima 4 is for free but the previous ones aren't it doesn't make sense and making them free will attract more customers

Games like Death Rally and NetStorm come to mind. Both would probably be able to attract more people to Gog.

More free games attracts more people to GOG, think of all the people who got steam when TF2 went F2P...
