    Wan't sure where to post this.

    Any PC gamers here? I have literally thousands of Steam keys to give away. Yours for the asking. For those who may not know what I am talking about, Steam is a game store online, they give you a "key" code for a game. You enter the key on the program that's downloaded to your PC. It then adds the game to your library, where you install it from. (There was a MAJOR issue on one forum where I did this, so this is why I explained it a little.) You MUST have a steam account for these games. It is basically DRM. Some people hate it and won't install it. that's OK. I understand it's not for everyone.

    Please tell me the name of the game you want and if I have a game you request, you might need to PM me your email as Steam will send a link for the key.

    1. I ask nothing in return for the games, except your promise to do something nice for another person. That's all.
    2. These are ALL from game "bundles". Where you get numerous games for a low price. I will NOT have new releases, or any of the major $50 game titles. Please keep that in mind.
    3. I have one key for OOTP 16 and one for OOTP 14 for Out Of the Park Baseball fans who never played and who wish to try this fantastic game. EDIT: both keys used.
    4. ONLY established members/lurkers need request a game. Do not sign up here to ask for a key. I will Ignore it. I used to not care, but I would literally be bombarded with new people wanting free games. they then leave the forum and never return. So don't bother.
    5. Please be patient. i will post to acknowledge your request. It may take me a few days to get back to you. I am disabled and sometimes health prevents me from using a computer. But I WILL get back to you.
    6. You MAY end up with a key that has already been used. It does happen. Newer bundles tell you what keys have been used, but older ones did not. I can't test them. if I try them on Steam and it is valid, it will go to my account. So i can't verify keys. Sorry but it does and probably will happen.
    I have given away hundreds if not a thousand keys already. i enjoy giving and these games are sitting here doing nothing. I would rather see them used. Any questions don't hesitate to ask.

    Wow--you're awesome.

    Um--Stellaris? No idea if that's considered too new.

    Near Death? Do you work at/with Steam, or did these all fall off a truck or something? I'm not picky, just curious, you're the man either way.

    This is so cool. I have never tried OOTP before and would happily claim the '16 key if it's still up for grabs. If not, I will get back to you. Again, thank you.

    Wow thank you. I've been thinking about trying out Victoria II from Paradox (would also try Victoria but think it's a bit clunkier.) If you have a spare key I would appreciate it.

    This is really cool of you.

    I'd be up for Stardew Valley or Plague Inc.: Evolved

    Thanks for the offer and if it doesn't work, no worries, still a kind gesture

    Sorry. Do not have that one. If it's a new ( last year or so) or $40 or $50 game, I will not have those.


    For those wondering, I am NOT affiliated with Steam in any way. I am disabled. My PC is my main source of entertainment. I don't watch much TV, except for History channel, Discovery Channel, Smithsonian Channel, etc. I cannot afford new games. I buy bundles which contain older and or Indie games. Usually for a couple bucks. There is usually only 1 or 2 games I want, and there can be up to 12 games in a bundle. Buying 5 or 6 bundles a month for a few years and the keys add up.

    ALL requests to this point, including PM, are acknowledged. Humble Bundle lists games alphabetically and has a search function(Indie Gala has search), so they are real easy to find. Some sites don't. I must go through EVERY bundle I own (hundreds of them) and look for certain games. That's why I ask for patience.

    Fellow disabled gamer here. Let’s chat sometime. Or, I’d be happy to start a thread if you want to take this discussion public-ish.

    Sure.Always happy to discuss anything with anyone.

    Seeing OOTP made me wonder. Is there an online league here? Seems like that would be a lot of fun. Although I have zero experience playing online.

    There used to be one a number of years ago.

    There's an online league where you act as GM of a team, but others run the sim and the owners simply make the lineups and organizational moves. If that's something you're into, let me know.

    How about Terreria?
    It looks like an interesting game

    Link sent via PM.
    Just to give everyone an idea how many keys I STILL have, I have FOURTEEN pages of unused keys on Humble Bundle alone. Not to mention, Indiegala, Bundle Stars, etc. I have done this on every forum, and have given away a ton. Not bragging or tooting my own horn, just explaining why I don't have keys sometimes. I feel bad when i don't.

    That's such a great and generous gesture. Thank you. OOTP 14 or any baseball or football game would be great.

    Just wanted to say publicly what I said to Kun over PM: thanks so much for the offer. While I know you said these are extra leftovers for you from bundle purchases, you are still taking the time to go through and get these out to people. It's really generous of you, and it's much appreciated.

    No need to thank me. Arrange for me to throw out the first pitch in game one of the World Series at Fenway next year, put my face at center ice of the Stanley Cup finals ( hopefully a three-peat for the Penguins (ducks & runs) ), and work it out for me to sit on the Patriots bench at next years Super Bowl, and it's all even.

    Speaking of OOTP, Humble Bundle has a "Strategy Simulator" bundle, which is a pay what you want bundle. It has OOTP 18 in it!!!! GREAT deal for those who want the latest version of OOTP. These bundles offer great value and the proceeds go to a different charity each month. This months is Doctors Without Borders, although you CAN choose which charity gets your proceeds. Check it out. Here is the link.

    I have a key for Middle Earth: Shadow Of Mordor that I picked up for someone who wanted it, but changed their mind. If someone would like it, let me know.

    I've already received a game from Kun (Terraria, it's awesome), but if no one else wants this, I'd be up for it, if we're allowed more than one.
    I've been close to pulling the trigger a few times on buying it in the past, but never have.

    Leave it for another few days first, if that's okay.

    Key sent via PM. Enjoy. And yes you are allowed more than one. Some greedy bastard took numerous keys. (Just joking. The one who this is for knows.) Everybody can ask for keys as easy as you can. I figure after 24 hours it's fair game for everyone.
