Not sure if it's been mentioned... but S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Anomaly is always free and it is excellent. #1 game on ModDB.com, but it's actually standalone, ie. you don't need any of the original games to play it. It merges all 3 stalker games maps and throws in a bunch of community-made mods and quests. Very heavy on the imsim and survival aspects, and blows many AAA games out the water. I can't recommend it enough.

Thea 2: The Shattering giveaway

"I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...

- 2 July 1844 letter to James Russell Lowell from Edgar Allan Poe.

Not for me, slickdeals shows me a lot of things and articles, except the game, GOG don't show anything but a empty page with '{}', also nothing in my GOG client. I can open the page with the game, but it's not free for me.

Occurs sometimes, that a Giveaway is country restricted, not only in GOG, also in Steam.

When I get the "{}" it means I got it. Reloading that page should then display {"message":"Already claimed"}. I link that page as a shortcut, you can just bookmark it and load it daily to pick up most of GOG's freebies as they come in.

But if you have some region-specific issue, I don't know what it would look like.

It isn't the first time that a game is country restricted in a Giveaway, same as in other contents with copyright. This can be avoided with a VPN or Proxie, but not if the game need an account to download, like in GOG, Steam, Indiegala, and other sites. It's somewhat annoying, but often the Giveaway is repeated later in other countries.

I have the 2006 Prey and I love it, it's an incredibly good game (Puzzles with death walker elements similar as in TDM House of locked secrets). This new version reminds me too much of other similar FPS, plus unfortunately it beats my system to play it.

Prey  2006

Also free (abandonware)

Haha, the 2006 Prey was nice and all, but the modern Prey is like a Deux Ex on a space station. A must-play for every immersive sim fan.

More of a System Shock reboot. I love it, one of the most fun games I played in the last 20 years.

      I did it! I finally did it! After 48 hours of frustration and confusion, I managed to finally sort out how to attach equipment to NPC:s properly, and write down coherent instructions on how to do it, both in my manual, and in this forum.
      I can finally rest. I can finally eat breakfast.

      Spent most of the day learning and writing about AI navigation. It's stuff I already know, but the magic about writing something down as clearly formulated as possible, is that you then see things that much more clearly. You also find what's unclear to you, and then you figure out exactly how things work. I was hoping to get through it all within just a day, but it looks like this will take tomorrow as well, at this rate. There's also plenty of other nonsense I have to get through as well. Everything's a chore.

      I want to be a fish, but I'm not a fish. My mom wants to be a fish too, and so she's killing herself eating plankton and sh***ng blood, and tells me to stop nagging her about taking her medication. I spent several hours today, just lying in bed, having anxiety over just existing, and not being a fish. You fish, you don't know how lucky you are. You can eat all the plankton you want. I tried eating plankton again yesterday, and I just got sick. I hate being a shark.

      I just gave myself vertigo. A pleasant kind of vertigo, like the world has been lifted off my shoulders. I'll explain:
      Yesterday I saw to my dismay, that I had made my entire map two - two - units too short on every level - that every set01 piece was sticking 2 units into the ceiling. That's basically 402 brushes that needs to be realigned (minus the ground floor brushes).
      I knew enough about selections to do all of that in a very tense five minutes, and it compiled without leaks. (Thank you so much, Dark Radiant devs, for making an editor with such care for precision that you can align hundreds of brushes perfectly at once (which is not something I can say for Valve's Hammer editor, which has some serious issues on that front, which actually made me just quit it in disgust).) However, the result is that the entire level has now been stretched a barely noticable 2 units, and it will take some getting used to psychologically.

      My workflow is basically running from a chain of disasters, eventually trying to seek shelter in former disasters. It's not ideal - it's just my life.
      When I abandoned my first map, it was out of a typical mental breakdown, and so I returned to find a skybox void where the kitchen door should have been (due to a misplaced visportal) and two overlapping brushes Z-fighting on the kitchen floor.
      I've now cleaned up the last bit of mess, by cleanly separating every floor into its own layer. Now I can finally work on each floor in peace.
      ...not that I really needed to. Once you get skilled enough, the orthographic messes, well, I'll let this video speak for itself:
