This may be old news to long time gamers, but did you know that many PC game makers offer free trials of their games? That's right, you can download the game and try it out before you shell out $30, $40, or even $50 for a game. I have gathered here a few LEGAL places you can download game trials and listed them below. - Its true. Microsoft not only makes Window, but also many of the games you may enjoy. You can download trials and even buy the games if you decide you like them. Microsoft's site offers trials of games such as "Halo: Combat Evolved", "Age Of Empires III", "Flight Simulator X","Rise of Nations", "Zoo Tycoon 2", and more.
