Dosbox + abandonware games and shareware are good, plenty of great games. Plenty of doujin shmups around, some demos and some freeware - Blue Wish Ressurection plus is a good example.

There are lots of good open source games all of which are free:

Wesnoth, Nexuiz, Neverball, TORCS, Flight Gear, FreeCiv, etc.

There's a pretty good blog on the latest developments in that area here:

This game will put 99% of games released after it to shame, a pure gem!
