So many games, so little time.
If you're an Amazon/Twitch Prime subscriber, you probably know you get a handful of PC games for free each month. But July isn't just an ordinary month for Amazon. Prime Day is kicking off on July 16, bringing deals of all kinds for Amazon Prime members. But the celebration isn't limited to Prime Day itself. In addition to three games that will be free all month for Twitch Prime members, the company is giving away one free PC game every day during the lead-up to the shopping holiday. All told, 21 free games are going out this month for free to Prime members. [Update: Prime Day is now in the rear-view mirror, and it's too late to claim many of these games, but a number of them are still available.]
Among them are games like Pillars of Eternity: Definitive Edition, Brutal Legend, and Tacoma. You can see the full list of games below. To claim your free games each day, you can either click here or visit Twitch.tv and click the crown-shaped button next to the search bar at the top.

To call attention to the freebies and showcase the games, Twitch Prime has partnered with some of the top Twitch streamers, who will be streaming the each day's free game. You can find the streaming schedule here.
