Wing Commander 3, Hearth of the Tiger is free with Origin DRM (that is, using the Origin client.)

https://www.origin.com/en-us/stor...rd-edition

see this FP post:http://slickdeals.net/f/7112892-wing-commander-3-heart-of-the-tiger-free-at-origin

EDIT to add: GoG games are DRM free.
Under the Many more category is a game I think is worth mentioning:Medal of Honor Allied Assault. $3.99

Medal of Honor: Allied Assault War Chest includes Medal of Honor: Allied Assault and its two expansions: Spearhead and Breakthrough.

You are welcome. I will note that some people do not want to install the Origin client, thus by buying it from GoG for the $2.39 they gain a DRM free copy.

DRM is digital rights management. Software such as the Steam and Origin clients control when and where items are run from a users library. That is, they tie the purchased copy to the purchaser. (One has to log into the client to run the games 'owned' by that client.) DRM free means there is no client, activation, or CD-KEY needed to run the game. But, this does not mean the game is free to give away. The game is still protected under general copyright laws.

Speaking of classics, for those who missed the announcement earlier in the month, Activision is bringing back the Sierra brand.

Curses. I bought WC4 two weeks ago for $4.99 from Origin to complement the free WC3. And now I could have gotten it for almost half that. Oh well. Picked up the rest of the WC Saga. I'm gonna have a busy couple of weeks I think. Thanks, OP.

FYI - There are a couple Ultima IV remakes that you can get for free. IMO Ultima IV has always been the best game of the series.

Exult:

XU4:
http://xu4.sourceforge.net/

The original Ultima IV is completely free on GOG as well if you get it by itself:

Ultima: Worlds of Adventure 2 is also FREE by itself:

How do the wing commander games hold up?

I missed out on these during my childhood (didn't have a PC that could play them), so I'd be interested in going back. But my current backlog is just so huge, I'd be worried that I'd never get to these. I'd probably play 1-5, but it might be worth it just for the Mark Hamill FMV scenes. Stick Out Tongue

Is the story/universe worth it? My baseline for space sim excellence is X-Wing and Freespace 2. ^_^

Syndicate 4 life.

To bad they turned it into a mediocre FPS :/

i've got a old pentium laptop with dos 5 I still play that every once in a blue moon.
would make an awesome android multiplayer port.
