@Anteater: Just pirate some games, if you have qualms with that, just pirate some older games.

Well, if you're willing to try some indie games, Iji is pretty long, and really good. Cave Story, Knytt, and I think the first Samorost (from the guys that made Machinarium) is free. If you're into adventure games, look at the Adventure Games Studio site. It's got a ton of games. Stuff like Ben Jordan (8 games so far) and the John DeFoe games (made by Yahtzee) are great. Also, ScummVM supports plenty of free games.

I was always quite fond of Battle for Wesnoth...can't remember the website though. Turn-based strategy at it's free-est. Also, the old Command and Conquer games are available for free on EA's website.

thepiratebay.org is your friend.
 
Or you can just look up the free games on gametap.

Borrowing old games from friends might be your best bet for consoles.
 
I think Tinker is free on games for windows live.  Alien Swarm like someone mentioned and one of the Peggle games is free on Steam.

I think most of these guys have already mentioned the cool freebie downloadable games (but no one mentioned I Wanna Be the Guy yet?!) As for games that you can play for free through a website/portal/whatever,  Battlefield Heroes is cool, and Quake Live is super addicting. Newgrounds has some cool stuff like Super Mario Crossover and Tuper Tario Tros (a mix of Mario and Tetris), along with other neat-o games.  
 
You can most definitely game on the cheap if necessary. Just look harder.
