There are many useful and popular free engines. Most of them are only graphics engines but there are other free libraries available for physics, etc.

2D games and 3D games can be easy depending on your level of math.

Depends what I'm doing, but if there's an appropriate free engine (remember to check the licencing as well as the features) I'm happy to use it.

I'm assuming C++? A couple you could look into (not neccesarily full engines) include:
- Haaf's Game Engine
- The Popcap Framework (aka Sexy)
- BooGame
- OGRE
- Irrlicht

It depends on what you're doing, but generally 2d will be simpler, particularly for a beginning game developer.

Since it is open source you could add your own sound system; or you could use oggvorbis or audiere which is what the demo uses.


the audiere is very helpful,thanks!
