Is there anywhere I can look at a list of all games steam is offering for free?


There is a Free to Play category on the Steam store.

In addition to this there is a popular and seemingly up-to-date list of free Steam games on the Steam Forums.

    They don't even list them in the "All games below 5 €" list :( – Felix Dombek Jan 10 '11 at 17:10

    Note that the F2P category only includes pay2win games. Actually free games like Alien Swarm are not included. – kotekzot Jan 19 '13 at 16:00
  • There is a Genre called Free-To-Play
  • Demos are also free to play

You can also choose "Advanced Search" and narrow your search to `"Free To Play"'.


I'm pretty sure the only free game other than online games such as Spiral Knights or Team Fortress 2 is Alien Swarm. Other than that there are always demos.

  • you can get portal for free just by installing steam on a mac... – l I Dec 21 '11 at 20:14
  • Really? Is that a fairly new addition, as I installed Steam on a Mac about six months ago and never got Portal. – Squeaky Dec 21 '11 at 21:38

    I think the Portal For free thing was a launch promotion for Steam-on-mac. I would be surprised if it's still active. – Ed Brannin Dec 29 '11 at 13:57
  • This is wrong; there is an entire free games section in steam. – Enigma Feb 25 '13 at 15:15
