Free Open Source Game Engines

I did not create this list and I do not remember who did. If someone knows who created it, please let me know so proper credit can be given for their hard work.

I have not had a chance to go through these programs to find out if they are still around and what the url's may be. The person who created the list did not provide url's, so I will see what I can do to hunt them down, while verifying these programs still exist.
