This is a reddit community centered around the exchange of digital PC games - Steam or otherwise. Users may trade their surplus games for money or for other games as long as they follow the rules of this subreddit. You might end up getting scammed if you ignore the stickied safety guide and the AutoModerator warnings sent to your inbox. Your Steam account is required to be linked to your reddit account before being allowed to post here; check the registration section below for details.
Feeling generous? Have an unclaimed Steam key? Want to reap that glorious karma from gluttonous gamers? r/steam_giveaway is the place for you! Here, users (givers) announce giveaways that other users (takers) can enter in to win Steam game codes.
In this subreddit: we roll our eyes and snicker at minimum system requirements. This is a community for anyone struggling to find something to play for that older system, or sharing or seeking tips for how to run that shiny new game on yesterday's hardware. Found a cool game that runs fantastic on a lower end system? Great! Do you have a guide for running a newer game below the minimum requirements? Share it!
The goal of /r/Games is to provide a place for informative and interesting gaming content and discussions. Submissions should be for the purpose of informing or initiating a discussion, not just with the goal of entertaining viewers. Memes, comics, funny screenshots, arts-and-crafts, etc. will be removed.
We love links to digital freebies. Free pointless fun stuff, free iOS and Android apps, free games, music, video, eBooks, software, and anything else free. If it's a temporarily 100%-free giveaway with no purchases of anything needed, it belongs here!
/r/indiedev is for indie developers and gamers to share whatever they want (be it game development, their favorite games or just some cool images, GIFs or music from an indie game) in a casual community-run environment. It supplements places like /r/gamedev and /r/indiegaming with content that those subreddits can't provide. But of course if you're an indie gamer looking for things about indie gaming, this place also welcomes you. After all, every gamer is a potential indie developer!
Play it Forward: Receive a game, play it, then give it to someone else. This subreddit is about gifting more than receiving, you are expected to give back if you receive a game. Create a thread to give a game, you can hold a contest or pick a random winner. The winner plays the game, then buys a copy and makes their own giveaway. Please read the complete [rules and guidelines](http://www.reddit.com/r/playitforward/wiki/index/), for all the details.
A subreddit for games descended from Rogue - a sub-genre of RPG games involving things like permadeath and randomized levels. This community is mostly centered around traditional roguelike games which are turn-based, grid-based and single character focused, but discussion of "roguelike-like" games is still allowed.
