    I recently also encountered a site that offered "full downloads" of popular video games, I was surprised I could find it via Google Search. But even weirder is that the games were not flagged by VirusTotal.

    Always download from trusted sources and sites. In piratebay, sort by seeds, look for green skulls, or at the very least purple skulls (green is above purple). There are many underground forums that rarely if ever appear on google searches and you can find all kinds of games there.
