For the month of December, Amazon, via Amazon Prime, is giving subscribers not one, not two, but eight free games, four of which are quite notable. Unfortunately, if you're on Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, Google Stadia, Amazon Luna, or any other platform other than PC, you won't be able to play any of these eight games. And of course, you also need to be an active Amazon Prime subscriber.
If you're an active Amazon Prime subscriber and have a PC to play games you can enjoy all eight of these games as much or as little as you want and that's because these aren't free trials, but free downloads. Once you download any of the eight games, they are yours to keep and play as long as you maintain your subscription to Amazon Prime. If your subscription lapses, you will lose access to any and all games downloaded through Prime Gaming.
Below, you can check out all eight games. Meanwhile, alongside a trailer for each game is also an official game description. And if you can't tell, the first four games are the noteworthy ones.
