I want some computer games that have high replayability, are relatively cheap (0-20$ CAD/USD), NOT need a CD to play, and most importantly, take up as little hard-drive space
and processor power as possible. Possible examples including good pieces of IF (especially mystery, who-killed-X ones), Fallout 2, Rogue-likes, games of the lightweight Boomshine/Peggle/Bejweled group, any RTS or turn-based strategy games, and anything by Nifflas. I'd love blogs that recommend good games, too. Any recommendations?

I've seen the all of the 'Best indie games of 2006/2007/2008' etc. posts on the blue, but I don't care about the source so much as it being lightweight and fun, and that's a whooole lot of games to go through, so I'm hoping you guys can help me filter the wheat from the chaff.
My current favourite games, but which may not suit all of the requirements above, include Portal, Half-life 2, Grim Fandango, Starcraft, Civ 2/4, No One Lives Forever, and Alpha Centauri.
