recommend simple fun arcade games for pc

i used to play the more popular games like fear or half-life, but i have less time now. recently i got gridwars for pc (xbox360 geometry wars clone), which is pretty fun and i find myself playing it a lot when i take breaks from working.

any other fun games like that out there?

For more of the fun simple games I would recommend getting an account at some place like Real Arcade. Its free for a month and they give you two free games. While a member you can play most of the games free online and for $7.99 a month they also give you a free title every month and $5 off any title. I have picked up stuff like Bewelled 2, jigsaw puzzles, etc there.

Yahoo, MSN and Shockwave among others have similar services.

I've been enjoying Sky Bubbles Deluxe this weekend. It's basically a 'match 3' game like Bejeweled, but with a few tweaks.
Real Arcade is a good option to get those games cheap.

You might want to check out Gametap, $10 a month for over 600 games. Frogger and PacMan to Tomb Raider. I haven't tried it so I don't know how good it works.

www.gametap.com

Plus you could check out the M.A.M.E. program.

Gametap is another good choice and also has a free trial. I forgot about that one. I will probably sign up for it when the new Sam and Max is released.

Not sure if anyone has mentioned this yet, but I think GameTap a 14-day free trial or until your fingers can't take it anymore.

I'd like to try GameTap ... but without a free trial, no deal.
