Good Old Games sympathizes with furloughed workers, offers free games

Furloughed workers of America, Good Old Games feels your pain. You're home, not necessarily getting paid, and you may be running out of land to explore in Grand Theft Auto V's vast expanses. Luckily, they've got a massive library of games waiting for you, and they're making a bundle of 'em free between now and this Friday.

Snag free copies of The Guild: Gold Edition, Capitalism, Capitalism 2, Tropico: Gold Edition, Alpha Centauri, Alien Crossfire, Theme Hospital, and Redneck Rampage by sending in "your picture holding the official furlough letter you received" to (the sarcastic, though potentially offensive) thanksobama@gog.com. For us non-government employees, those games are all on sale for 50 percent off for the next 24 hours. Not too shabby either!
