Read the Summary at the bottom if you don't want to read the really long bit!
1 - Steam, GOG, Origin, UPlay etc probably wont have viruses. Origin and Uplay are owned by and only have games that are made by Electronic Arts and Ubisoft. Steam is big enough to filter through its games as they are uploaded and make sure there are no viruses, and GOG mainly specialises in well known games, and they don't get well known by giving you viruses. So any games that are free from there (Steams promotions like the recent Payday 2, GOG's front-page promotions like Fantasy General, Origin's On The House Deals, and UPlay's Christmas giveaway are all safe.

2 - IndieGala, Humble Bundle giveaways, MarvelousGA etc giveaways deal in manly steam keys, so treat that as above. As long as you don't download anything from those sites to unlock the Steam key, you'll be fine.

3 - Game Giveaway of the Day... probably no viruses. I haven't used it, so don't take my word. Although it's probably fine, I heard it is bundled with ad-ware, which may contain viruses, but are most likely just Potentially Unwanted Programs. As long as you un-tick the other 'goodies' that it comes with, it should be fine!

4 - Softonic, CNET, Download . com etc. DO NOT GO THERE, they offer free programs, but are almost always bundled with PuP's, and even commonly viruses. A mate of mine broke his computer by downloading Minecraft for free from Softonic. They had to get a new one. True story.

Summary:
If the games is a promotion from a well known game platform, game developer website, it is almost 100% risk free. If it is a giveaway from a bundle site that offers steam keys, it is almost 100% risk free as long as you don't have to download anything else to get the key. GGOTD is safe, but untick the unwanted stuff. Similar sited to GGOTD may also be safe to, as long as you untick the other stuff, and Google about it first. Pirate sites are not safe. If your AV has picked up a trace a virus, Google it - it's better safe than sorry!

nicohvc: Thanks, again, for the info. So de PS2 version was only released on Europe, interesting. The Wii version was available on NA. By watching the gameplay seems the kind of game that takes advange of the Wii Mote features. A PC mouse would be comfortable too.

[url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ex_Zeus ]Wikipedia [/url]says that te ExZeus was launched on PC around 2005. What happened with that version?
From what I was able to dig up, the old PC version of ExZeus 1 was shareware with what I'm guessing a level or two playable until you buy the full game from the distributor that had it for the time, but seems like the shareware distributor went under and so did the shareware's official downloads (there might be backups around somewhere). I was able to get a hold of the full game of ExZeus 1 on PC and it feels like a direct port of the arcade version(?) and not the PS2 port; the options are bare bones as PC ports go, 640x480 low-resolution, lack-luster controller support although you can rebind keyboard controls (uses keyboard only), and unlike the PS2 version and onward, bullets don't cancel into gold when destroying the enemy that fired them. What strikes me as odd about this port is its copyright date (see the screenshot attachment), which was copyrighted in 2002-2003, which is very strange. Maybe the version I have is an older build? In any rate, I'm hoping this new port of ExZeus 2 does well to warrant a port of ExZeus Arcade from smartphones to PC in a similar manner.

If this is about ExZeus 2 having a warning when attempting to install the F2P version from itch.io, I seriously doubt itch.io (or any other distributors that carry ExZeus 2) would allow anything malicious to slip by their radar. I've also installed and played this game and nothing adverse happened to my computer.

Nice data. In that case I'm going to try the Playstation 2 version.

Still amazed Softonic are still on the go. Surprised no one's gone all legal against them.
Weird enough, zlaywal from Indonesia has access to that page but I don't (from China, Asia). Maybe this giveaway is just for some specific countries.
Game Giveaway of the Day - Cubozoid
Exclusive offer from Giveaway of the Day and MyPlayCity! No third-party advertising and browser add-ons!

Cubozoid is fast and furious fun! Your job: keep a parade of colored cubes from filling up the game board. As the blocks progress through an elaborate maze, you must fire your own arsenal of colored cubes at the procession in an attempt to create groups of three or more blocks of the same color. When you make a match, the cluster explodes! Special cubes are on hand to help you win. The Chameleon Cube changes its color to that of the block it hits, while the Lightning Bolt destroys an entire row or column of cubes. Just watch out for the trick cube that makes the blocks move faster! Use the pickups well and you'll visit exotic locations around the world, including China, India and the Wild West.

Wishmaster777: Epic Games has nothing to do with Gog, I see you have strong language barrier. Chill out. This is place where we post and gather information about free games gbeing given away from various places. Also, you should read more about The Great Leap Forward, I bet your government never told you about it.
“This is place where we post and gather information about free games gbeing given away from various places.” -This is exactly why I expect people talking only about gaming but not the tragedy of someone else’s countrymen like it’s just a funny tale to show off their “knowledge”. Try to think if you are born a Chinese before you post something like that, OK?

“Also, you should read more about The Great Leap Forward, I bet your government never told you about it.” -My grandpa was put into the prison for donating a bible to the school where he worked as a teacher during that period, why would I not know about it or anyone else? And I’m only around 30. There are a lot of people who experienced that time live until today. Time to wake up, friend, Chinese knows much more than what your media make you believe they know.

As a Chinese, I’ve grown tired of what people from other countries think about China in the internet (seriously, you guys really don’t find this idea stupid? That we who LIVE here knows less than you who just HEAR about it?), and I won’t explain this time either. All I wanna say is just that, put yourself into others’ shoes before you post.

EDIT: what I wanna express by “There ARE Chinese people using GOG.com.” is that, people from Montenegro, from the US, from Europe or from China, can be similar people sharing similar interests just like you and me who both use GOG. Politics and governments may use tricks to make people contempt and hate other people, but at least as gamers who share love in games, we don’t have to fall for that.

PS. As for the giveaway of that particular game, I’m quite neutral about it. It doesn’t hurt me at all if they are given away.

Catac1ysm: Princess Lili - 丽丽公主
https://store.steampowered.com/app/876850/Princess_Lili/
thanks! btw the backstory of this is that the developer knows everyone is staying inside in China and therefore decides to make this game free so they have something to kill time with. Being stuck at home with a great firewall can be boring.
Journey and Uncharted: the Nathan Drake Collection are free on PlayStation store (no PS Plus required) until May 5. If you're in Germany or China, you get Knack 2 instead of Uncharted.
