Can anyone spare any Steam keys to donate a young gamer?

I've just built a PC for a friends grandson, he's only 8 years old. It's a gaming PC. Can anyone spare any Steam keys to donate to this young lad? I'm honestly not sure if it's appropriate or not to be asking here, apologies if not. Any keys would gratefully be received (private message me please). Many thanks in advance.

probably not going to go down too well on here.... good luck

There's plenty of good quality free games on Steam already available for download.

Not to mention that free key give away.

Cheap little boy

Oh, I'm not here to upset the apple cart. Any recommendations regarding the free Steam games please? Considering he is only 8 year old, but apparently already a 360 gamer. Thank you.

Someone asks for a few free games, gets slated, and yet almost hourly for the past few days users are asking for destiny beta codes and get helped out, ironic much?

I have the code and already downloading the GTR freebie, thank you Gynx I don't mind dbhoy, if you don't ask you don't get. I'm already a couple of games up for the kid. I'd have given him my spare keys, but already donated to other people.

No I agree about the asking part, but it's the fact that when hourly for the last few days (search destiny either in 'ask' or 'misc' for the last week and you'll see what I mean) and they seem to be helped readily when asking, but to then be judged for effectively asking for the same thing "a free game" , just cements the way this site is getting worse each day.

Let's hope other members of the community are more forthcoming in helping others and hope you get some games, unfortunately I don't game on pc or I would've donated some.

Try the weekly giveaway too, never know you might get lucky hotukdeals.com/mis…298

To be fair I don't see that I've been slated, was just a heads up I guess. If I'm wrong to post this and it's removed, then that's fine too. I'm not here to mess with the etiquette of HotUKDeals. I'm more of a long time lurker on here, but I have noticed the competitive spirit of some people regarding the deals posted, can be a little too serious lol.

Any recommendations regarding any other free downloads? I already downloaded Warthunder and World Of Tanks.

That's great dcx_badass! Thank you so much for that, I'll download that for him too. Have a super day

For the free steam games -

Probably best to change the selection choices to most popular and pick out ones you'll think he'll enjoy.

Team Fortress 2 is an extremely popular arcade style multiplayer fps.

Not sure who you mean has slated him? Have comments been deleted?

Original Poster

I haven't been slated UnicornRiver, responses have all been good and very generous

for the record i was in no way slating either, as mentioned above it was just a heads up, there seems to be a whole lot of people in the ask/misc sections who get on their high horse with people who ask for something for nothing, i personally dont have a problem with it, if i had some spare id rather give them away too instead of redeeming it and it never getting played. seems you have got a good bunch helping you out here tho which is brilliant

Original Poster

I did take your reply as a heads up only chantellle310. The world is full of good and generous people, we just don't always notice them due to bad ones grabbing our attention lol. I always pass on my codes and spares too, and any codes or freebies mentioned here are genuinely for the young lad. Thanks to you all for your advice, recommendations, and codes too. Wishing you all a cracking day in the sunshine

Sign him up for an origin account and check every few days they all so give free games away and do discount on games sometime.... I've had 3 or 4 game free from them since Xmas.....


With steam you can hook up to family and friends account and share games if there not using them.... You don't need to be in same house but just log on to his pc and authorise it to play your games....

+1 for team fortress 2!

I think Peggle is still free on Origin atm too!

This is going well Origin account created, Sims 2 Ultimate added, Peggle downloaded. Now adding Team Fortress 2 also. Thank you all

Completely agree, the recent destiny beta thing has annoyed the hell out of me. I had a few keys laying about, but I was against giving them to people who became a member just to ask for it. Some had real **** attitudes as well. When I saw people who has been apart of the community for a while ask they got replies quickly and before I managed to hand out a code to them.

I don't think I got any spare steam codes.

Take a look out on humble bundle when they got a steam deal, can get a bunch of games for 59p or a few quid depending on deal.

peggle is superb, one of my all time fave xbox 360 games. The sims 2 package also had an rrp of c.£400 on release when you include all the expansions!!! bargains galore!

Also install Origin there are a fair few free games on their client as well

Original Poster

I enjoy putting in the effort for people when they bring their custom to me, I just hope the effort is appreciated. £400 for Sims 2?! Wow oO I do build PC's for an IT disti all day long at work, but I like to put in the extra effort when I'm building at home.

Sorry Tony..I was messing it is probably the scariest pc game out and I wouldn't dream of a seven year old playing it

My thinking exactly!!

In terms of free games, it might be too complex or not to his taste, but how about Hearthstone, free from Blizzard via Battle.net?

I think I may have a key for Magicka going spare somewhere... let me see if I can find it.

The game League of Legends is very popular and free, also World of Warcraft can be played as a free (but the level up stops at level 20) but i would not encourage young kids to play MMO games as they are too addictive and breed ocd behaviour a bit.
League of legends is good as each match is only 20-40mins long.
Dota 2 is another good choice - can be found on steam in free to play by team fortress 2 ;o)

If i were you i would just buy the 8yr old minecraft on the pc!
