GameSpy has gone live with the first part of a 101 Free Games of 2012 feature. RPG, adventure and strategy games are offered in this initial round up, with puzzle and arcade due tomorrow; sidescrollers, platformers, versus battlers and WTF will follow. It’s also got links to previous year’s offerings, courtesy of recently-adopted sister site 1UP, resulting in a whopping number of freebies. Go forth and enjoy; browser, Mac, PC and even Linux titles are yours for the taking. Your productivity is sure to suffer as a result, but in the best way.
