List of subreddits to find friends to play online
Welcome to Gamerpals!
We welcome all those who seek friends to play games with, we do have a few guidelines on making a post to make the search a little easier though!
Welcome to /r/steamfriend!
The goal of /r/steamfriend is to have a friendly place where one can discover new people to play games with on Valve’s gaming client, Steam.
Looking for people to kick back and play games with? Need a competitive fireteam to take on others in Halo? You’ve come to the right place.
If none of your RL friends are PC Gamers with the same gaming tastes as you – It’s sometimes pretty hard to find good people to play online with, especially with co-op games. Playing against random strangers can dull your competitiveness, making your online gaming less interesting.
This subreddit is for those that wish to find like-minded gamers to play with and add to their Steam, Origin or Battlenet friend list.
Yup, there’s a million ways to find people online that share your same interests (well gaming predilection in this particular case), after all, that’s one of the main reasons the internet was created in the first place.
I think with the tools presented in this post, plus the huge help of the world’s most engaged online community you should never be too far from another gamer trying tp play the same title as you.
