Gamespot usually has a good selection:
http://www.gamespot.com/downloads.ht...dlx_type=demos

And Steam has a ton of demos as well:
http://store.steampowered.com/freestuff/demos/

Those are where I would go. Sticking with the main stream sources like that will help with the potential threat demos from untrusted sites could bring.

I wanted to download metro 2033 Demo and when i get to the download page at Gamespot and click on download, it says webpage cannot be found.
I also tried F.E.A.R. Multiplayer Demo same problem.



I was able to download Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X Demo and Dirt 2 Demo.

I find games on Wikipedia and get demos from wherever that leads me.
