Is Oracle Cloud the best FREE tier web services?


So I am about halfway through my trial and have learned a ton that I always wanted to learn by trying out the Oracle service. I searched here and saw a mention or two of oracle free tier but did not see a topic.

What I'm on about: https://www.oracle.com/cloud/free/ or https://developer.oracle.com/free/


I am a newb and a fool so with that is out of the way I will continue.


I crossed paths with the service while looking up Counter Strike:Source server install guides. It was actually a CS:GO guide which excited me because if the VPS can run CS:GO it should do even better with CS:S.


Why this CS:S garbage? : For posterity of my old clan that is pretty much dead to have a place to never play and never hang out anymore. Which indirectly answers the question of why I want free.


I have no clue how to use all the stack stuff. This is my first time getting game servers going on my own on a VPS and really doing anything with a machine without a GUI. 


What I am running:

Fast Download webserver for maps/mods VM.Standard.A1.Flex; 4 OCPU Processor: 2.8 GHz Ampere Altra™ 80C; 24 GB; 4 Gbps; 50GB 

Gameserver 1 and 2 VM.Standard.E2.1.Micro; 1 OCPU Processor: 2.0 GHz AMD EPYC™ 7551 (Naples); 1 GB; 0.48 Gbps; 50GB

Testing VPS VM.Standard.E2.1.Micro; 1 OCPU Processor: 2.0 GHz AMD EPYC™ 7551 (Naples); 1 GB; 0.48 Gbps; 50GB


I have not attempted yet but think the max single VPS you could build/select is VM.Standard.A1.Flex; 4 OCPU; 24 GB; 4 Gbps; 200GB. By adding all your free block volume to the one machine.


I am scratching the surface here. Does anyone here use this service?  Is this even good or am I just amazed because I know so little?
