Where can I find fonts (preferably free, but a reasonable fee is acceptable) that I can use in my for-pay/commericial game?

There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format.

GPWiki has a list of game asset resources, including fonts. – Josh Petrie Jan 17 '12 at 19:13
    
https://fontlibrary.org has a lot of open source fonts. You might be able to use some of those, depending on licensing and the opinions of lawyers. :P – Cypher Apr 11 at 21:53

You can find many free and cheap fonts on MyFonts.com, including the Larabie Font Collection (many of which are free for commercial use)

+1 for MyFonts because they have a "what languages does this font support" search feature. – Tetrad Aug 2 '10 at 19:00

Two good places to find free fonts are Font Squirrel and The League of Moveable Type.

I always head to dafont.com, although the range is similar to Font Squirrel and MyFonts.

If you're building a web game, Google has provided free fonts here: https://www.google.com/fonts This is a great service for web developers, because web licenses for fonts can be a gray area. They have only a small fraction of the fonts you can find on sites like others have suggested, however.

As far as I can tell these XNA fonts from Microsoft are free to use (released under the MS-PL):

Redistributable Font Pack

Can those fonts be used in non XNA games? The site is not clear about it. – Hatoru Hansou Jan 26 at 18:21

Fonts from Canada Type have a reasonable license, and I plan on using at least one of theirs in my next iPhone game.
