    Apparently, comments cannot be edited or deleted. Forget what I said below. I swear that the Epic Games store free games were not on this list every time I've checked it, including just a minute ago. Plus, this is the first time I've seen one of the very limited time giveaways from Humble show up on this list. Mind you, I don't check the list every day. Even so, I still feel like the title is a bit misleading since most of the games listed here require a paid subscription, just as others have been complaining about before me.

  • Vycyous  

    You would think a report/article titled "This Month's Free Games" would include the actual free games from, for example, Epic's game store, which is giving away roughly two free games each month. Instead, it only lists paid subscription-based "free" games and free-to-play (monetized) games. As it is, it should probably be titled "This Month's Free-For-Subscribers Games" and then create a separate report/article/list for free-to-play and/or actual free games.

  • KingTrashPanda  

    I see a lot of "This isn't actually free. Give a list of actual free games." When referencing Twitch and Humble Bundle. Why leave out Xbox and PS4? Do you think those are free? You need to be online to access the free games, and you need a pass of sorts in order to access online. Clearly this list is aimed towards those of us who have said passes to each of these providers.

    Love this page... thanks for maintaining it!

  • Mpire934  

    these aren't all of the PS4 ones

  • Nigh  

    Ring of Elysium should be added (it's free on Steam).

  • Adarkchylde  

    Ok Humble bundle monthly games are CHEAP - but they're not free , nor are twitch prime games , the humble games is a bundle you pay for and the twitch prime games is a complimentary perk for prime subscribers - but again you have to pay a subscription to get them. Why not add some truly free games to the list? I recommend Arboreal - which you can find on Steam.

    It's not free on PS4

  • JasonDietz  

    Rainbow Six actually is free this weekend. We had the wrong Microsoft Store link before, but it has been corrected.

  • bucksfan024  

    Title of the page is "This Month's Free Games" but the Rainbow Six Siege game isn't free... You should probably mention that.
