While PC gaming might not be as expensive as others like big game hunting or yacht racing, there’s no doubt that purchasing a console along with a few video games apart from a few peripherals can burn a hole in your pocket.
However, there’s one way by which you can save money: by avoiding the expense o buying PC games that cost around $60 or so.
So, here are the 3 best places to find cheap (or literally, free) games:
#1: Game Deals Reddit
Since it is common knowledge that Reddit is a crowdsourced news-aggregator, the communities are split up by topic. Gaming happens to be one of them. /r/gamedeals is the community you might want to visit where updates from Steam and Humble games are available.
You will also receive updates from other sources such as Amazon, GOG.com, GamersGate, GetGames among others.
Knowing where to buy isn’t the same as knowing when to buy. For games, in particular, June, early July as well as December are times when you can purchase games at the best rates possible.
This is the time when Steam has massive holiday and summer sales and which causes other competitors to do the same.
While there are other sales that occur during other months, Steam still offers the best discounts available.
#3: Humble Bundles
Since cheap games is the topic of discussion here, it wouldn’t be fair to mention Humble Games. Ever since it began in 2010, there are now 11 main bundles that are offered. It goes without saying that independent games also turns out to be hit on Humble Bundles too.
So, if you want to benefit from these offerings, it should be good to know that big bundles are offered every two weeks while smaller ones are offered every week.
