Epic Games Store Giveaways Total Over $2K

PCGamesN busted out a calculator to figure out the value of all the games given away for free on the Epic Games Store during their promotional freebies spree. This added up quickly, as we are surprised to see the retail value of all these giveaways comes to more than USD$2,000. Here's word:
We added up the full list of 108 free games that Epic’s had on offer since launch, using the regular sale price of the base versions of each game – the versions of the software that have been offered as the freebies, basically. Sure, some of these games have been available deeply discounted or free elsewhere, but we’re going with the non-sale price as a rough gauge of how valuable each title is.

All together, from Subnautica to Grand Theft Auto V this week, the total value of the free games the Epic Games Store has given away is $2,140.94 USD. That’s equivalent to £1,768.83, although the total value in pounds is probably a bit different due to regional pricing variations.

Epic have my utmost respect for one reason that is afaik unique to them:

When they made it big they took the money they made and siphoned it back into gaming.

You may disagree with how they are doing it, but while every other big hitter is sucking as much money as they can from gaming Epic are essentially "stealing candy from kids" (fortnite) and giving it to game developers (and us).

Gog is easily my first choice for third-party games, but Epic is a strong second.
