    Planeshift vote here, too. It has a unique playstyle, and while I didn't give it a enough time to learn it all, just the mechanics alone did keep me interested. It is a interpersonal roleplayer (like Ryzom I think it was, true to the spirit of an MMO), not your usual action-RPG you'll find nowadays. It was certainly a good game for a community effort and when I was playing it the low-level graphics issues had been sorted and the place was looking pretty sweet. A few issues with the interface being a wee bit clunky, but eh. I believe all RPG's have those 'unique issues'. Features.

      And while we're sharing links;

      http://xlengine.com/

      It's a multi-engine supporting Daggerfall, Star Wars Dark Forces, LucasArts' Outlaws and Blood.

        sadly there's a problem with distributing it, the license and the game itself.
        There's no real docu how to build it and its different parts.

          it has a compiling guide:
          PlaneShift Compiling Guide

          I tried once to compile it, but it didn't really work well, so I gave up.

          The license is described in their wiki:
          Players Guide/License

            While everyone is throwing out links to games and such I though I would pop in to mention a little game named Illarion at http://illarion.org

            It is not the most technologically advanced of the free and open source games available but it is constantly being developed on by the dev team.

            They are always looking for more volunteers too if anyone actually likes the thought of getting involved in open source game development.

            A list of most of the tools they use can also be found at http://illarion.org/community/us_links.php and their source code is on Github too
