What are BFG files and how to open them

Are you having problems opening a BFG file or just wondering what they contain? We explain what these files are used for and show you software that we know can open or otherwise handle your files.

What is a BFG file?

Files that contain the .bfg file extension are commonly associated with the BFG (Big Fish Games) game manager application. The BFG application runs games that are downloaded from the BFG online gaming service.

The BFG files that are stored on a user's computer contain all of the information that will be needed to launch a particular BFG game on the user's system. If the BFG file is removed from the user's computer, the associated game will likely be unable to launch and a player will be unable to access the associated computer game until the BFG file is restored on the system.
