I'm not sure if I'm missing some obvious trick or what, but it's damn hard to actually kill anything in that game. Mash your movement keys and furiously click in the general direction of something that looks threatening, and hope something dies. Spray-and-pray taken up to 11.
It's spelled "definitely", not "definately". "Defiantly" is a different word entirely.

Click on a player on the map (preferably one in a larger group) and team up. I would suggest starting out as a priest to be the most help to your party. Also, press T to auto-fire and shift+click to use your magic (which is always the item to the right of your weapon).

I've played BfW for about 2 and a half years or so...so I would recommend it as freeware.

I also have played Froggato, but have slightly lost interest.

I've played RuneScape off and on for about 4 years. I was a member from Dec. 09-Jul. 10. Since the end of my membership, I have not visited it again.

I've been thinking about Lord Of The Rings Online or Regnum Online, if I go back to MMOs.

Right now, per this topic, I am checking out megaglest and Warzone 2100. :)

Also, Wolfenstien Enemy Territory.

Poor frogatto needs replay value.
Right now it's about as blah as wesnoth would be with a single campaign, and no MP.

We're working on it.

It was a bit enjoying, but attractive nature was lacking. It seemed too old style for me, but I imagine it would be an awesome game on mobile.

I guess this is more of "what are you playing right now" than it is "what is your favorite games", so:

Free (as in beer?):
Frogatto (multiplayer :o )

Paid:
Minecraft
Just Cause 2

I play FAR too many games to list them all, so I'll stick with my all-time favorites.

Battle for Wesnoth just because the community is so much more respectable than the people I generally meet in first person shooters. Also for the eccentricity, I mean...Discussing orcish genetics for 3 whole pages while keeping a straight face?

Unreal Tournament, for being such a solid game that's relatively easy to create content for, and keeping a community about as active as Wesnoth's despite being 11 years old. (Also for not requiring a terrabyte of hard disk space like the modern PC games would like to do)

Unreal Tournament 2004, for the incredible amount of things you can do once you've downloaded enough maps and modifications.

And Uncharted 2 (PS3), for the graphics. I know it's a terrible thing to like a game for, especially when it has barely any replay value, but I use the visuals like a holiday. I load a map on Very Easy* mode and stare at things until I get bored.

*Very Easy roughly means: I am almost immune to bullets and my character does 80% of the aiming for me. Hide behind a random object and point in the general direction of the enemy, then continue tourism.

Disgaea DS. I can't believe I missed this gem for so long, being a huge fan of Tactics Ogre, Final Fantasy Tactics, etc. The game is just brilliant.
