You can get ports of various UNIX games like rogue/hack/etc.
I know you said free, but older games are nearly free, and some have
even been released into the public domain now.
Also, something older like Baldur's Gate or Icewind Dale might work, and
they can sometimes be found for nearly free now.
The original Elder Scrolls games and Heroes of Might and Magic might
also work on an old laptop.
Oh, and there is always the Infocom adventures, most of which are free
now and require little in the way of resources.
