Practice Random Acts of Disdainfulness

Not this sort of text-based game.

Upstart start-up Choice of Games offers up a fine debut effort with the text-based (but tasty) Choice of the Dragon. Versions are available for the iPhone and Android, or you can play in your Javascript-enabled browser for free. The game owes some of its narrative structure to the old choose-your-own-adventure paperbacks, but adds some CRPG flexibility -- mostly behind the scenes, so you need never worry about the mechanics.

In my opinion, more RPGs should track "disdain" as a stat. I certainly found this one worthy of repeated playthroughs. Via io9 by way of Gizmodo.
