Free and legal commercial games

A lot of people aren't aware that there are some games that can still be found on sale that are have been given away free by their respective owners. I'm not talking about grey abandonware*, but genuinely free games. Here's a list of those that are reasonably popular and where to get them.

Grand Theft Auto
Grand Theft Auto 2
Wild Metal
MechCommander Gold (Expansion pack)
MechCommander 2
Command & Conquer
Railroad Tycoon

Another bigger list (doesn't have some of the above) is also available on wikipedia

* Note Mechcommander/Gold is a tiny possible grey area - Microsoft gave away Mechcommander 2 officially, but I can't find mention of the older editions, however all MechCommanders are hosted at, and I'm sure MS would have busted them by now had it not been official!
