Are Half-Life games really free?

I thought they were free to play for a time, but you won't keep them after that.

These are free to play for a limited time, not free to keep in your library.

Yep, exactly guys: "Half-Life: Alyx is coming in March, and we are celebrating early by making all games in the Half-Life Series FREE to play for Steam users, from now until the day it launches!"

If you don't already own those games ....I don't know what to say.

"Don't Buy Half-Life: Source"

Although the article only talks about HL1, HL2 and both episodes 1 and 2, the offer also includes Opposing Force, Blue Shift and HL:Source.

I remember getting Half-Life when it first came out, and being surprised that it needed around 400MB of hard drive space to install. Great game, though.

The second official expansion, Opposing Force, was even better.

Happy Halloween! The famous (or infamous, depending on how you look at it) PS4 P.T. Silent Hill demo from 2014 has been recreated for the PC. Available on itch.io.

More info:

If you were lucky enough to grab this (it's not available anymore unless you become a Patreon donor) make sure to grab the "Silent Hills Cutscene map" which is free. If you are not familiar, a modder recently found a way into the outside town in the original PS4 teaser demo. That has also been recreated for us PC gamers.

Good news! As of this day two classic games made by Mike Singleton - The Lords of Midnight and Doomdark’s Revenge - are available on GOG.COM completely free.
Enjoy those breakthrough titles that paved the road for fantasy series like King’s Bounty or Heroes of Might and Magic.

So... Just in case anyone wasn't aware yet, the copy of Half Life 2 you get via the "time limited" trial on Steam is still seemingly DRM-free. I don't know if it'll delete the files or just remove it from the launcher once the trial period is up, but there's nothing stopping you from copying it to another location and running it however you like.

Note that I've only tested the Mac & Linux versions so far, but I'd be surprised if the Windows one isn't the same.

(I suppose they could have built in a date check or something, but it doesn't look like it's been updated since Feb. 2019 so who knows.)

I think I have a free copy of registered Half Life 2 for anyone who doesn't yet have a copy of this game.

Ghost's DJs on Steam. A game inspired on Ghosts'n'goblins... it does have some playability issues but it's free!

...set in a parallel universe in which the music scene is being dominated by fake artists and DJ’s.

Shit, we did get sucked over into the parallel universe. I knew it!
