    Steam is one of the biggest, they have most of the latest releases and older games to at reduced prices, and guess what specials and freebies.



    GOG is mainly for older games and there are a lot of free ones to be had, just do a goggle for the games you your looking at and your OS or Operating System, IE Windows 10 / 8 / 7, Unix Ubuntu Etc, like this.
    "Games name, how to play on OS." This should tell you if you can play it, and if you need to do something first.



    There are a lot of MUD's about, or Multi user Dudgeons, also space games like Star trek on line & The Elder Scrolls on line, if your into a type of game then just do a goggle with say Space games or Card games Etc, but before you down load do a goggle for a Review of that game, some have spy wear in them, the review should warn you.

    Hope this helps Leona

    OK sorry this thing decided I was trying to spam, the links are safe, and I don't own any shares in them, wish I did, you will have to remove the spaces if you use the links.

    It's it's authentic arcade games you're after have a search for MAME (stands for Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator) or FinalBurn Alpha (I think it's still called that) these emulators allow you to play the original arcade games (no links as I'm not sure of the rules on this forum). Alternatively do what I do and get a raspberry pi3 and install retropie on it. I'd also suggest searching 'retrospec' as this site has conversions of old computer games for the pc/mac.

    I tried steam once to get a game I wanted that wasn't available anywhere else but then left my account for a bit, then it got hacked and for the past couple of years I regularly get emails from steam telling me someone in russia, china, mexico etc etc tried to log in, so I've left it. I've heard good things about it but I like to be able to just download a game on its own and play it.

    I use Steam and GOG mainly, though Itch.io also has a fair few games. "Is There Any Deal" is great for seeing if there are cheaper Steam codes on third-party stores. Also, the Epic Game Store offers free games every 2 weeks right now, but I'm not comfortable recommending them entirely because of their current shenanigans.

    Also, don't use G2A to get your games... you'd be better off pirating a game as opposed to buying it on there, seeing as anyone who buys a game from G2A (I'm not sure about Kinguin) actually takes money AWAY from a developer, because many of the keys from that site are actually stolen, or bought fraudulently (as in via stolen credit/debit cards), so you end up getting chargebacks, etc, which costs the devs a lot!
