Indeed, we had to install a "launcher" to have those games, and I think it was the price.
yep and a certain "Launcher" netted me 126 games free and quite more than a few worthy AAA in them including Troy : A Total War Saga at launch day, Nioh, A Plague Tale : Innocence, Elite : Dangerous, Control and multiple other (even tho i had a some of them already on STEAM (bought).
so, even tho they are, just a bit less than, half "owned" by Tencent and they gather my personal informations (good luck with that ... it's just a mail ... and not even my most used
not that i care anyway. ) and "made" me buy 3 games (Werewolf, Remnant from the Ashes and Horizon : Zero Dawn ) the tradeoff is at my advantage i'd say ... (plus they integrally refunded all my ingame purchase made for Paragon when they cancelled the game ... )
There is no such thing as a "free lunch".
not totally right and for games well, out of the free i got on all platform confounded are mostly complete games, sometime not even 1 day old after launch (see above) and a few "base games" which also had a few free DLC to go with ... and if i liked the game enough i would buy expansion DLC (less than 10$ most of the time ) or buy nothing in case of a game with only cosmetics DLC
well if GoG did the same ... i would not say no to that ...
talking about GoG, 2 free games i liked recently :
Sandwalkers: The Fourteenth Caravan is the free prologue of the full game Sandwalkers.
The classical AG racer, FLASHOUT 3D, initially released more than 10 years ago, is
which is awfully similar ro Redout, which iself is a tribute to Wipeout, i got free on Epic (enhanced edition with some DLC, the other race map expansion are priced between 4 and 5$ )
