Funny enough, I actually found that thread before this one and they told me to go here. Thanks for the general advice though, I appreciate it.
Keeping an eye on both threads will probably serve me best, but either way I don't expect this request will yield much, if anything.
You were told to go here because you asked for the game without it being on the available games list. Here you can indeed just ask for games and hope a very kindhearted and generous user will just gift them to you (though unless you're known for also gifting quite a lot yourself, you're also likely to get downvoted). On that other thread there's a clearly specified list of available games, which are donated by users, and it's also for active community members
, so you need to have some visible participation on the forum for a while, outside giveaway threads, to be eligible to ask for one of them. So over there you should first wait to see if it shows up, then ask, assuming you're eligible.
