PostSubject: GOG games libraries (temp)   Sun Jun 19, 2016 11:23 am

For those who don't know, GOG is a game service much like Steam. Several differences though. GOG started out as 'Good Old Games' and specialized in buying the rights to redistribute old games, which they fixed, patched, and updated to run on modern equipment. Further, they sell these games DRM free, meaning you don't need to be online to play them, you can install them on as many machines as you want, and you bought the rights to OWN the game. That is a HUGE difference (and user draw) from Steam's policy where you're renting the rights to stream a game from them, and if they ever decide they don't want to stream that game anymore, you don't get to play it. GOG is wonderful. About a year ago, GOG unleashed a downloadable client much like Steam's, and things are going good, BUT it lacks many features currently in Steam. "Boo, GOG is dumb! Steam is King," say the Steamer's... I say steam has been around for a forever of years, GOG had a client for about a year.

Anyway, GOG lacks a decent way to share wishlists, AND there's NO way to share libraries right now. SO....for now I'm going to post my library here, and maybe Vader can do the same....

EDIT**: I should add maybe 10 of the games in my library were free, maybe 6 of them were free just for signing up, and they're not all crap, just old. And they recently set up a feature where if a developer agrees, if you have a game in your steam library it will unlock in your GOG library cuz "if you already bought a game, why should you have to pay for it again on a different service?" I agree! And these are the DRM free versions, and GOG is REAL good about giving you the little extras, like digital manuals for games that came out pre-1990!!!
