Wesnoth

One aspect to PC gaming has always been the open source segment where many lesser projects have gained mass popularity. Not only are they free, but their co-operative nature also allows volunteers and amateur coders to join in the development effort. Wesnoth as it is called by most people, is a free turn-based strategy game created in 2003 by the current lead developer David White as one such project. Users in that sense are free to create and distribute their own add-ons; in contrast to the unorthodox restriction on modding of proprietary games. Perhaps even more interesting is the fact that the game is well polished, sporting detailed 2D graphics that are nostalgic of Fire Emblem and other classic titles. Gameplay&Audio are also reminiscent of several high production value titles, making this one hard case to dismiss.
