Free Games With Gametap

Gametap – a Turner Company – is a games membership site where the customer can choose between free or paid options.

What’s interesting about this site is the broad array of games even in the free membership.

Gametag offers a mix of emulated classics from the arcades and consoles as well as classic PC gaming fare. This emulation is in itself very well designed, and some titles you can even play multiplayer! The system has a lobby for these multiplayer games so you can find people to play against. You can play challenge , or co-op with players.

For example, play the Sega Genesis version of Streetfighter 2 – against a remote, human opponent 🙂

Gametap also has some episodic games, some of which are unique to the site such as American McGee’s Grimm. Unfortunately, while a unique concept with interesting art design the first episode at least is an average playing experience.
