So, I am pretty new to the world of game development, so I am a bit fuzzy on what I require. Could someone suggest a game engine that I could use? I need it to be light weight (my game won't require that much power) and have networking functionality for multiplay or even an MMO aspect. The game I am making is like a game show, so it is your basic choose and answer hit the buzzer kind of game. Any suggestions? I would also like it to be open source or at the least free. I would like to support open source projects.

There was a question a long while ago on stackoverflow pretty much asking the exact same thing. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1576104/what-is-a-good-game-engine-with-solid-network-support
DevMaster has a huge database of game engines. You would do well to visit there.
