[This is a sticky post, it will be visible in every single page of this thread. It has been published in October 2020.]

Our moderation team decided not to take a side in the discussion since this giveaway thread was created by the community and, as long as there are no forum rules violated, is up to you, dear Gogers, to decide its fate. We will not set giveaway rules, edit the OP's post, nor lock the whole thread.

However, to make it easier for newcomers to understand the situation (about the OP being inactive and other), I will stick my own post right above the first one.

You are, of course, free to create new threads to start anew and make your own, clear rules. At the same time, please stay reasonable when crating them, as multiple new duplicates might make it even more confusing for many Gogers.

That being said, here you can find a post with dxenija's community poll to have better understanding of the situation: CLICK.

At the time of writing, open giveaway threads are:
- Massive Giveaways Blog (this one)
- Free (temporary) keys giveaway central topic.
- Updated Itch.io giveaways

Be nice to each other *flies away*

TurdFerguson87: [Switch]
As per No Gravity Games' giveaway page, they are doing another free game advent, for a shorter period than last year. You have less than 24 hours today to claim the first day's game. This game was distributed in last year's giveaway, so you have another chance ICYMI.
*This offer is only valid for Nintendo accounts assigned to the Americas region.

ABH20: Gravity Den is the new freebie at Indie Gala.
This one is quite interesting

Cuholvke: That's a lot of unnecesary Epic shilling there, lower a gear. And the question was already answered 3 hours before you posted.
I currently really, really, Really very much, I mean REALLY VERY MUCH don't give a damn shit.

It appears you do need to previously own at least one of their games as before.

However, as luck would have it, like last year's event, you don't need to purchase anything either. You can simply sign up to their email newsletter which should give you a key for one of their games. That will qualify you to get the current giveaway's game, making it 2 free games for newcomers!

[Steam]
As a bonus (unless it's expired by now), Rebellion is running steep discounts in their store page. Unfortunately, their server was bogged down with serious failures, that Rebellion decided to give a gift to compensate for all their customers' trouble. If it is still valid (when I last checked last night, it was good), you can get Aliens Vs Predator Classic 2000 for free using the checkout code REBEL30. You do need to set up an account there, but you don't need to post CC info.
thanks

TurdFerguson87: Is there anything else called "Switch" relevant to the links posted above?

This is a massive games giveaway thread. Why even have the conversation of adding another thread here?
Not to derail the conversation, but it is a fair request.

If Itch.io games are in a separate thread, which are actually Windows/Mac/Linux games, and mostly DRM-free, then why are console codes allowed, which have nothing to do with PC gaming, and are often either DRM'd, or region-locked, or both.

Considering that there aren't that many of them, it's not a big problem, but they do feel very much out of place here.

This has never been a PC gaming only thread, it's never been DRM-free only either.

The itch.io giveaways were moved to a different thread because there are way too many of them, and not too many here are interested in them, so they just cluttered up the thread.

If you want to discuss which games belong here you should start a different thread about it. This thread is for informing about massive giveaways only, not discussing them. You can do that here:

Edit: There's no need to thank people for posting giveaways either. You can do that with an upvote.

There's no need to comment on how interesting the games posted here look either. You can do that in the thread I linked to above.

This only became a problem when drxenija started posting absolutely every free itch.io game regardless of quality, spread across many post with usually just 1-3 games listed in them. This was a sad attempt to boost reputation with a flood of posts that instead lead to arguments and the need for a containment thread. Posting the occasional itch.io game that is free temporarily and of a decent quality here should be fine since drxenija has a containment thread to post whatever garbage in.

I wasn't posting about console codes. I mentioned one case it matters because it was a suggestion as part of a condition of having to own a game from the publisher. Otherwise one could've obtained a copy in other ways which doesn't make using codes requisite. The games are obtainable each day through the NA region store simply by "purchasing" them. You don't need to enter a code at all.

For that matter, Playstation giveaways have also been mentioned in recent times, so this is not an isolated case.

As for itch.io specifically, that has been brought up with the points mentioned before me and it takes exception to avoid missing out on big titles. It's also not a platform-specific site either, which lends to a greater distraction.

Otherwise, I consolidated my post to include obtaining a Steam game to cover some bases. That's all anyone needs to know.
Sorry for starting this discussion and it really is not a problem as it stands now as they are few enough not to drown out the PC games and probably too few for a meaningful new thread.

I could have kept my low opinion of the Switch to myself, I guess.
