The world is largely in quarantine thanks to the now infamous Coronavirus made in China, which is forcing people of all ages to stay home, completely isolated from the world and society, as a desperate measure to control the spread of a disease that has no cure yet and that can collapse the health systems of all countries in the blink of an eye.
And yes, we agree that staying at home for so long can be very boring, but fortunately, there are many options we have to make the wait more enjoyable, and for that we have board games, and video games that help make a long boring day fly by without us noticing.
In this sense, Good Old Games (GOG), the DRM-free videogame store from CD Projekt, creators of ‘The Witcher III‘ or ‘Cyberpunk 2077‘, has created a special section called “Stay at home” in which they have put 27 games that can be downloaded completely free. Some are recent, others are old games, some with better graphics, others with worse graphics, but the only thing that is sure is that there is something for everyone and the fun is guaranteed.
And so without further ado, let’s play that it’s quarantine
What GOG has done is a selection of popular titles, which are by no means all that are available for free on that platform.

Without a doubt, GOG has an excellent catalogue of games, all of which are DRM-free. If we apply the appropriate filters to the search engine, it is possible to get the list with all the free games that are in their library, although so you don’t lose time searching, here in this other link, you can find them all properly sorted by their level of popularity.
If you are looking for more mainstream games, we have also found them for you and left them here in this link. All these games are with spring sales until March 30th and among others, it is worth mentioning some of them like ‘The Witcher III: Wild Hunt‘, the complete collection of ‘Dishonored‘, ‘Stardew Valley‘ and ‘Dragon Age: Origins – Ultimate Edition‘. On the Steam platform you can also find free ‘Goat of Duty’ and some more.
Anyway, quarantine doesn’t have to be boring. But let’s keep our fingers crossed that it doesn’t extend any further than necessary, otherwise this fragile world could collapse.
