Best Free Steam PC Games (2022)

Here are all the best free PC games you can play on Steam in 2022.

Due to the recent spike in GPU & other specific components, building a gaming right turned out to be pretty costly in the recent post-pandemic scenario. Now even though the new full RGB gaming machine is ready, some of us still prefer to settle for those sweet free-to-play games for now. This list will also include the games that you can run on your PC if you are still using an old GPU when you are waiting for that long-awaited price reduction. So here’s our list of all the best free PC games you can play right now on Steam in 2022.

Best Free Games For PC On Steam

These games listed are also taking the new recent updates into account. And some of the previously paid games like PUBG Battlegrounds, have turned into a free-to-play model. So we will include them here. And some games in this list, like Capcom Arcade Stadium, currently have very less players. But they are still fun to play for their nostalgic retro actions. To make this fare, we will sort them by the peak number of players they received since their launch. This will help you also find the games that made the most noise since they were available on Steam. We are also fans of games like Fortnite & Valorant, but today we will only focus on the ones available via Steam now. Now with that said, here are the best free PC games you can play right now on Steam in 2022:
