    "Steam is great not only for downloading free PC games but also for stay tuned on the latest news about games and technologies. Without any doubt, one of the greatest websites for gamers. However, its search engine could be way better. I can't believe this awesome website has these poor search system. "

    "Awesome collection, but I feel that generally, people looking for "websites for downloading free PC games" may not have the technical know-how to run DOS games."

    "Gog doesn't have free games, but it does have cheap older games that you may have played growing up and they can help if you want to relive those days of old playing your favorites from years ago. They make sure every game runs on modern operating systems and works as well as it can."

    "On itch.io, a user can download games for free to a PC; these games include Right Click to Necromance and PC Building Simulator Demo. The site lets users sort by "Top sellers" and "Top rated.""

    "Gaming is my favorite activity and I want to play as many games as I can! Buying lots of games can be expensive, though, so I wanted to check out some free games. Not all of the games on Gamejolt are free, but there is a nice selection of free games to preview, download, and play."

    "I like rpgmaker.net for hosting and playing games. I like how I can play regardless of the engine being used. I frequently check out the event updates there and the forum community is pretty helpful for staying connected with the latest that is happening."

    "Softonic is a website that I credit with saving my marriage. Before Softonic many of the other sites I used to download free PC games had other attatchements with them that included loads and loads of porn, My wife would constantly have porn popping up on the screen when she was using the computer as you can imagine this caused lots of problems for my marriage. Now thanks to Softtonic the games I download are porn free and my wife is a happy woman."

    "I like to try new computer games all the time but I don't always have $60 bucks to blow on a new game. Origin is a new site that is making games available for free that might cost you quite a bit on other sites. It allows me to try new games without having to shell out any money."

    "There is a reasonable selection of free games at this site. However, a large fraction of them is targeted to younger children. I am an adult, so I would like more games that I would enjoy. However, what can one expect if the game is free."

    "Looking for something to do in my free time, I figured I'd look for websites to download free PC games. I came across this subreddit called Free Games. While it does have some free games on there it's not what I was looking for. There games are for online flash. I'm looking for games I can download and play offline."

    "Humble Bundle is a great website for good deals on PC games. While they have good deals, most of them still cost something, so it is a bit limited for finding totally free games. I have purchased many games from Humble Bundle and have been satisfied. I wish they had a bit more variety and selection. When I want to find free games, this isn't my first choice."

    "I could not understand the logic of paying non-free games by freely with the help of this app. Is it cheating? Is it stealing? I do not trust any app with this property. I would like to pay for the apps if I like them, not try different ways to get them free."

    "ThePcGames not only has all the popular games for PC, but it also keeps updating the old games with new updates, DLCs, patch and Fixes. It have complete installation instructions for downloaders on every game page. It also has some video tutorials for popular games. The games are tested before being published so all of them work ;)"

    "What makes the site more interesting than the others is that it not only adds free games regularly, but it tries to archive the products that tend to disappear and group them into compilations. It's in french though, but it's reliable and easily translated with online tools such as google translate or DeepL."

    "CorTorrents are a good place to download free PC games if your don't mind torrenting. I tried it out and found a few games were pretty good. The speed to get them is ok as well. I would not use this site a lot as the variety can be limited and I just pay for my games to get what I want anyway. However, for a quick download to try something out this is a good website."
