GOG has a list of 50 games that are free to download as part of its holiday celebration.
While GOG specialises in older games there are still a few that are worth downloading and trying out.
Beneath a Steel Sky is an adventure game classic.
As they are free to download, you can always try out a few and give them a guilt-free go.
The Elder Scrolls 2: Daggerfall is our first recommendation. You can pick up either the classic version or the Unity version here.
It will give you a glimpse into the world of The Elder Scrolls before Skyrim became the dominant game.
Beneath a Steel Sky is a classic adventure game, and remains highly-rated to this day.
Thimbleweed Park is a more modern take on the genre. While Dolores is just an added story, it may give you a taste for the full game.
GWENT is usually free to play, but is still worth checking out as a fun deck-builder based on The Witcher.
Higarashi is one of the longest and most successful visual novels. This is only the first chapter, but will let you see if you want to invest in the full game.
Quake 2 is another standout, and a must-play for all fans of Doom.
