BioShock Infinite is currently available kind-of-sort-of free from Green Man Gaming.

https://goldenjoysticks.greenmangaming.com/

You have to take part in the Golden Joysticks Awards voting, and then you'll get a coupon for Bioshock Infinite that will reduce the cost to 1$/euro/pound, but you get that 1 whatever back as store credit when you play the game.

Not sure if it counts, so feel free to delete this post and let me know via PM so I can repost it somewhere else

Psssttttt... You don't actually have to follow anything on twitter or do anything on Facebook or Twitter. It just looks like you do. Adam and I only provided my e-mail address and got the Steam key. (Adam's e-mail wasn't even associated with a FB account.)

For me it's telling me to sign in with Facebook... seeing as how I don't have an account, I can't possibly sign in.

I'm not sure how you managed that then. When you click the "Get your Steam key" button a popup comes up requiring you to log in to Facebook and grant read access to an app called "Coupons". I refused access and hadn't received a key after 15 minutes. I then let it have my spam Facebook and the key came within a minute or two.

Hmm.. probably because I already had Facebook up? But I didn't have to grant permission to an app for anything. We both also use adblock and I don't know if that saved us from some of it. Sorry for the misinformation.

Addition: I just checked and I had the coupon app on Facebook. I deleted it.

This has probably been posted before but just in case...

Almost 2600 free MS-DOS games can be found at the Internet Archive.

And of course Wolfenstein 3D is there which I just bought from GOG an hour ago. shake

Edit - in case you're wondering this appears to be legal. I was wondering myself when I saw they had games like Sim City, Street Fighter 2, Donkey Kong etc. Whether they work properly in DOSBOX is another matter though.

For anyone else, you don't have to even download anything to play Wolfenstein 3D, you can play on your browser.

Unless you live in a country with legal issues around the content I mean.

Actually, Zork 1 has been released in the public domain. And the original Zork, which encompasses all three games at once, is also in the public domain.

But yeah, most of what is downloadable from this site is not public domain yet.

Well, it's a bit vague. At one point they definitely gave away Zork 1, but not 2 and 3. However, the trilogy was created on the basis of one big game, that simply did not fit onto one disk, which is why they split it into three parts (while seriously extending the third part). The original big game has been in the public domain since forever. So one has to wonder how strong the rights of Activision are on chapters of the big game. But I am not a lawyer and I would hate to have the job of defending either party if it became a case. Maybe the fact that Activision's rights are a bit hazy with respect to Zork made them so willing to give it away...

So what they're saying is false? How have they managed to stay up for so long with all those games? Surely they'd have been shut down pretty quickly?

Should I remove the link from my post? Don't want to go promoting illegal sites.

Looking at their main site I see that games are just a tiny part of their collection. Also I don't see any advertising so they don't appear to be making any money from the collection. Though surely that's using a tremendous amount of bandwidth?

I research games all the time. I might research some Portal 2 later.

This has long baffled me. I can't for the life of me understand how they haven't been taken down.
Isn't that mostly a case of "nobody cares"? If nobody exercises his copyright, no action will be taken to close that site.

And I can imagine for businesses like GOG that going through all the hoops to take legal action is too much trouble for a few games.

Just guessing, though.
