When I was in school, I had a crappy computer. But I loved playing games such as EA Sports’ Cricket 2002 and Hidden & Dangerous on it. I spent my pocket money on buying new games from a local shop, and then I spent my study time completing those games.
However, after I joined college, my PC gaming reduced quite a bit. A few years later, I made a switch to a MacBook Air, which is not known for its gaming prowess.
While I mostly play some casual games on my phone and my Nintendo Switch, I do miss the world of PC games from time to time. So, in this edition of Daily Distraction, we’re gonna list some free PC games for you:
- Epic Games is offering Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments and Close to the sun as free to keep downloads until April 16.
- Video game industry analyst Daniel Ahmad tweeted that Ubisoft’s Assasin Creed II will be free on uPlay on April 14.
