How about an option to be able to chose "freeware only"? I get mad when I get into a great game and I have to stop because it's shareware.

This is probably one of the most frequently requested features for the site. However, it's not as easy to do as you might think. The reason is, again, that the game listings on dosgames.com are not dynamically generated from a database (as they should be). They are, instead, hardcoded HTML. I went back and manually added Freeware/Shareware tags to all of the listings recently ... so now you can at least see what you're downloading before you do so. Happy

I just sparked an idea.....why don't you do the freeware list like you did the All Games list? You just go to the normal list from several links. I know you could do that!!
