As a gamer, it is in our nature to have as many games as possible. Steam is the greatest game store for Windows PC’s as well as Mac PC’s. However, despite having a Steam account, how are you going to fill that gaming library of yours with new games especially when most of the games found on steam don’t come cheap? Here are ways to help you get Steam games for free! Don’t worry because they’re all done by legal means which means there will be no piracy involved.
- Getting the games on SteamGifts
The best site that comes to mind when you’re on a quest to obtain free Steam games are through SteamGifts.com. In this site, Steam gamers are allowed to share their games with other gamers for FREE! If you have extra games, then you can always put up an offer at the site. You can even set the duration of how long the offer will be available and the site will be the one to randomly choose the winner. Public as well as private giveaways are also possible and available.
Your best bet in winning these offers are basically just joining private contests because winning giveaway offers at SteamGifts have way too many odds. Of course, just because you’ve entered a private contest or have contributed and have offered a lot of games yourself, doesn’t mean that you won’t have any competition either way.
SteamGifts is a great place for you to try and win free games so remember to not get discouraged despite having the odds against you. If you lose, remember that there are more contests in the site that you can partake in so that you can have free games. Humble Bundles is also a great place to visit because it people give away Steam keys for the games that they already have in there.
- Getting the games on Reddit
When you’re looking for a much more reliable source of Steam games, Reddit just might as well be your best bet. Patience is needed in this because all you need to do is hope that whenever you visit the site, the game you’re looking for is available and is for free considering that there are only multiple subreddits that are dedicated enough to put on free game dispersals.
When you want to trade or switch games, you can do them on Steam Game Swap, Random Acts of Gaming, and/or on Gift of Games subreddits. Take note to always be3 on your best manners whenever you are participating in any Reddit giveaways or trades. Make sure to thank the person you are dealing with in order to maintain a healthy partnership between the two of you and to make them want to trade with you again in the near future.
- Getting the games on Steam itself
Surprise, surprise! Obviously, this was to be expected. Although they aren’t much, Steam offers its own variety of free games which can be found on their own Free to play section that has been noted to have 129 available single player and multiplayer games. An all time favorite would be the free download of Team Fortress 2 right off of Steam.
