No this is not a joke, System Shock is now downloadable for free over the internet. Just click on the link below, and you will be taken to a website that explains everything you need to know about downloading the game.
Due to the fact that this game was released for DOS, you're probably expecting that you would have to download DOSbox. While it does use DOSbox, you don't need it in order to play System Shock. The great thing about this download is that DOSbox is integrated into the download. Which breaks up the tedium needed to play games for DOSbox.
However, this download does have technical flaws. You would find the game to occasionaly crash (especially, when closing an overworld map), and there's no patch released to remedy this. There are also times when your character will uncontrolably turn in a certain direction (there's no patch for this problem either).
Despite all of this, System Shock is a very enjoyable game to play, especially to those who have never played it before (like myself).
