You’re probably familiar with Amazon Prime perks like free two-day shipping and tons of great streaming content. One bonus that doesn’t get as much chatter is probably one of the best: Prime Gaming. Every month, Amazon Prime subscribers get all sorts of great goodies for gamers.

That includes free PC titles — and you get to keep them even if you cancel! If you haven't checked out Amazon Prime Gaming yet, May's a great month to start thanks to the six gratis titles listed below.

Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here.

Can't choose between a rollicking space adventure or bone-chilling horror? Why not combine the two by getting your hands on Dead Space 2? You'll need to stay alive on the vast Sprawl space station, while battling and evading the undead Necromorphs. It's terrifying, but thanks to the moody graphics and audio, it's a very attractive kind of terrifying, one that'll let you blow off some steam this May. You'll need an Origin account to claim this offer. Don't have one? You can sign up for free and claim lots of other great giveaways on the site throughout the year!

A fairly recent title, this usually costs $30 to download via Steam — so make sure you grab it while it's free through the Amazon Games app.
