Free PC Game Downloads

An Alphabetical List of Free PC Game Downloads

Gaming is hugely popular, and free gaming even more so. Below is a list of our picks of some of the best free computer games you can download directly to your computer right now. Some of them are even portable, which means you can put them on a flash drive and play them anywhere.

These titles include older and popular commercial games that have been released as freeware, home-brew remakes of popular games and games released by independent developers.

They're identified by their genre, such as first-person shooter, strategy, role-playing, simulation and platform games.

Tip: These games are downloadable ones that you have to save to your computer and then install before they're usable. These are not the same as free online games that can be played in your web browser.

Before Downloading These Games

Remember that each of these games only work when downloaded and opened on your PC. This poses a risk when compared to online games because it's more likely that the game files might contain malware.

Take caution when downloading these files. Even though none of them should contain viruses, it's possible that they do. Know how to scan your computer for viruses should the need arise, and always keep your computer updated with the most recent security patches.

If you download a game that won't open when you double-click it, chances are you need to extract the game out of the archive since some of them come in a RAR or ZIP file.

ZIP files can usually be opened no problem but RARs and other non-ZIP archives require a file unzip program like 7-Zip.

Several of these download pages have multiple "Download" buttons but only one of them is actually valid; the others are most likely advertisements or links to other websites. If any links take you elsewhere without downloading the game, return to the download link below and try a different button.
