A bunch of cool games for whatever you can afford.
The Humble Indie Bundle

This is an awesome thing they've put together. You can funnel your payment to the developers and/or charity.
Since they announced that they are open sourcing 2/3rds of the games (a sixth game was added after the initial launch), you can still get it for at least three more days.
Someone please explain...

Instead of having their games pirated, they let buyers pick their own price point. Pay what you want to pay. A few other indie devs and musicians have done this.
World of Goo (excellent game) took a horrific beating in the piracy market when it was released, and the pay-what-you-want deal is better than nothing. Plus, free marketing.
radiohead did it very successfully iirc.
So like.. I could do it for zero? Or $1?

As did Nine Inch Nails. (=

I think you can do 0.01 technically. I paid $12 because I'm not crazy about any of these games (based solely on reading about them) but I support the approach. (=
