does anyone know where i can find and download any text based games that came out within the last 5-10 years? I would just google it, but I have no clue where to start to even look for such a thing as it seems to me that people wouldn't make text based games anymore and people wouldn't play them all that much. So any clues?

the keyword to put on google: "abandonware"

But just a little warning: must of the "abandonware" around the net, isnt.

"Interactive Fiction" is the term you're looking for.
...and if you happen to be interested in making such games then INFORM is probably the best option out there for you.


There are also games which aren't really text-based but abuse a console-based display - search for "roguelike", or check out the insanely complex Dwarf Fortress for examples of these.
