    Apparently, comments cannot be edited or deleted. Forget what I said below. I swear that the Epic Games store free games were not on this list every time I've checked it, including just a minute ago. Plus, this is the first time I've seen one of the very limited time giveaways from Humble show up on this list. Mind you, I don't check the list every day. Even so, I still feel like the title is a bit misleading since most of the games listed here require a paid subscription, just as others have been complaining about before me.

  • Vycyous  

    You would think a report/article titled "This Month's Free Games" would include the actual free games from, for example, Epic's game store, which is giving away roughly two free games each month. Instead, it only lists paid subscription-based "free" games and free-to-play (monetized) games. As it is, it should probably be titled "This Month's Free-For-Subscribers Games" and then create a separate report/article/list for free-to-play and/or actual free games.
