Buy these nine games to support the Ferguson Public Library photo
Buy these nine games to support the Ferguson Public Library
by Steven Hansen

Altruism is better when you get something in return. Contradictory? Sure. Ignoble? Someone will tell you why from their high horse. But wouldn't it be sweet if in paying your internet bill or buying a new blender, all the proceeds went to the World Wildlife Fund or Doctor's Without Borders. You get something, the world gets something, Comcast gets nothing. In a perfect world.

Of course, we live in a tragically imperfect world, which is why game developers have bundled nine games together, "in support of the Ferguson Public Library and in solidarity with protesters resisting antiblack state violence and white supremacy."

For $9 (or more), you'll get 9 games, 8 of which are provided as direct downloads, the 9th as a Steam key because of the filesize. All proceeds go to the Ferguson Public Library. The bundle will be up until tomorrow, December 6, at 11:59 Eastern. If you do donate, make sure to download your games before then, as the bundle page will be taken down then.
