Ever wanted PC games for free, you would’ve come across many websites where you can do surveys, etc and earn money or steam codes. But most of it goes in vain unless you keep yourself dedicated for long periods of time.
This post will tell you 5 Ways you can get PC games for free easily and legally with little to no work, some patience will be needed though.
So, let’s cut to the point and start our list
Platforms to get PC games for free
Steam is the go-to destination for digital games for me and many other gamers.
It has a massive amount of video games whether premium or free to play, but that is not it.
Many times steam gives out premium (or pay to play) games for free as part of limited time sales.
You can also check out the Demos section of Steam, which currently has over 2,400 demo games that you can try to see if the full game is worth spending money on.
The biggest point is that Steam’s library is so big that you will never run out of games to play, and its free sales are very often too.
There are loads of Free to play games on Steam too

Epic Games Store
Epic Games, the creators of the famous and powerful Unreal Engine and the owners of Fortnite, have their own store where they provide Indie and sometimes even AAA titles for free on sales.
There are two paid games, one being an Indie and another being a bigger one, on the free sales list which updates every week.
Hence, new free games every week. (What’s better than that)
You absolutely don’t have to do a thing to get the free games, just make an account and new games every week.
Enjoy your PC games for free.
If the game you are looking for is an old one, from 1978 to 2010, this one is for you.
My Abandonware is a website that stores older games, which now do not have licencing issues.
On My Abandonware you can download all the old video games from 1978 to 2010 for free!
You can play Pacman, Arkanoid, Tetris, Galaxian, Alter Ego, or Blackthorne, Civilization, Sim City, Prince of Persia, Xenon 2, King’s quest, Ultima, Kyrandia, The Incredible Machine, Another World, Test Drive, Flashback, Lemmings!
All of this, for no cost. Go dive deep into nostalgia
The website is basically a digital distribution service for video games as well as movies. The website is developed by GOG Limited and actually is a wholly-owned subsidiary of CD Projekt. (Yea, Witcher 3 Developers)
On 26th March of 2009, the website went into a deal with Ubisoft, letting them allow to publish games from the back catalog of Ubisoft. The website offers you two or three premium games at minimum for free of charge every year. These giveaways last for about 48 hours i.e. two days.
Even if you want to buy games on GOG, the games are not DRM-protected, they are not bind to your account, hence if you even lose your account, or GOG shuts down, you’ll retain your games.
The last one on this list is a little tricky.
Steamgifts is a website where steam users host giveaways for games that they don’t need anymore.
Its hard to find a AAA game here, but nothing is impossibe.
This won’t require any work, but it will require some luck to win the giveaway of the game you want.
It is recommended to participate in more than one giveaway at one time to increase your chances of winning one.
This sums up the list of 5 Ways to get PC games for free easily and legally.
I hope you enjoy your PC games for free.
Always remember that most of the deals are not permanent, hence you should grab them as soon as possible
