(CNN) -- Eager to play a new video game but not looking forward to dropping $40 for the pleasure of doing so? Then take a different route and play for free. If you know where to look, there's plenty of fun to be had for all you freeloaders.

Sam Kennedy, editor in chief of 1up.com, says one place gamers can sign up and play right away is at pogo.com. The games here come courtesy of the Electronic Arts franchise and include everything from sports to pinball. Kennedy says it's a "good place to play lots of mini-games."

Another site Kennedy says gamers should check out for free online gaming is at games.yahoo.com. The games are similar in theme to those at pogo.com (baseball, dominoes and blackjack), and the site provides an online chat feature for those who like to express themselves while hanging out in an online arcade.

Another Web site is Trygames.com. Once again, it's Kennedy's suggestion. Here, gamers can test various titles before paying cash to make them part of their online collection. Kennedy says some games could last an hour or so. And even if the game's not great, the price might be right. Games are on the block for less than $10 a pop.

Finally, for those who have an itch to live the life of a soldier, log on to americasarmy.com and download the good stuff. Developed by the U.S. Army, the game is so strong that people would pay full price to play it if it weren't free, Kennedy says.
