This is what I have so far. I had just started buying PC games on GOG, I think as early as last year.

>> No.6535716

some of my faves i own on gog

baldur's gate 1 and 2
grandia 2 hd remaster
sim city 3000
roller coaster tycoon 3
deus ex 1
alpha centauri
monkey island 1 and 2...maybe 3 too
x wing
tie fighter
knights of the old republic

idk. i have like 300 games there. their selection isn't anything like steam but at least they respect your money and let you own the games you buy (not tethering you to any software).

>> No.6535725

As mentioned, Worms Armageddon because you can still play it multiplayer online

Split into 2 or more parts.

Yeah I know I’m just adding everything to this list for the next sale.

>> No.6535784

Or, you could just download them for free. They're all there, virus free too.

>> No.6535785

You can get all the D&D gold box stuff cheap. If you want to play Wizardry 6-8 I recommend with Wizardry 7 you go into the Extras and download the Dos version and play that. On Modern systems the Wizardry 7 Gold has about a 3x3 inch screen and you cannot make it bigger.

>> No.6535787

That’s exactly what I’m gonna do. I go through the list, pirate the game and try it out. If I like it I’ll buy it later, if not remove from the list.

>> No.6535792

Dude on the windows stuff and some of the Dos, just go the GOG way. Farting with settings and trying to get some working is a nightmare. I tried to get Thunderscape working for months years ago, never got the settings to not make the game run like hammered ass.

Right now you can get D&D stuff dirt cheap.

Forgotten Realms Collection 3, Menzoberranzan and Dungeon Hack. It's 2.03$ Don't be that fking cheap.

>> No.6535813

I would be trying out the GOG copies anyway. And yes GOG has very good pricing, which is why I've bought a lot of stuff from them already. One of the few places I feel deserves it.

>> No.6535826

Unreal Tournament.
System Shock.
Deus Ex 1

>> No.6535831

Dude just keep the fucking pirated versions. No one gets royalties from you buying 30 year old games, and CDPR certainly doesn't need it.

>> No.6535867

Hey man I get bitched at from both sides of the piracy debate. I’ll do it my way and you can do it yours alright.

>> No.6535936

Nah, you should pirate. CDPR these last few years have shown they don't deserve your money anyway, so don't be a cuck.

>> No.6535972

GOG and CDPR are subsidiaries of CD Projekt. Whether you like CDPR or not, GOG and CD Projekt have had a good history based on what I’ve seen. GOG has good products so I’ll support that.
What they decide to do with the money is their business. If my dollars magically get reallocated from GOG to CDPR to fund one of their games I couldn’t care less.

>> No.6535981

And in the future if they decide to shut down GOG, I will still have all the games I got backed up DRM free.

>> No.6536037

I only have about two games in gog
But what it first comes to mind would be

Is gog the best service for classic PC games and ports? I feel like there is a wider library than steam.

>> No.6539365

This is a solid list. There are a few I find dubious but overall it's good. Some of them need context to. Neverwinter Nights, for example, is very mediocre on it's own but the fan made mods and the community servers elevated the game into the stratosphere. Too bad the enhanced edition tore the community in half.

Underdark is the best. It takes place after Shadow of Undertide, but I can never get through that expansion. The beginning stages are painfully slow. It's a fucking slog. Even with friends it's a slog.

How the fuck do you interpret that post as pro-remake? Are you retarded? This level of stupidity should be a bannable offense. You should feel ashamed of yourself. Don't even look a this post as an insult but as a honest critique of your mental deficiency and try to better yourself.

>> No.6539613

Yes, by far. Aside from the larger library, as anon says, the games are modified in order to run correctly, which doesn't happen with Steam games.

>> No.6539645

Yup Steam doesn’t give a shit. Many games straight up don’t work and you have to manually fix them.

>> No.6539658

And some steam versions don't even have fixes (community has no motivation to work on a patch since GOG version exists and works perfectly out of the box).

>tfw GOG Galaxy 2.0 still doesn't support pirated games to be launched through their launcher like in 1.2

This is honestly a downgrade, I hope GOG fixes this soon.
They could at least forbid pirated downloads from connecting online like in 1.2.

>> No.6539872

>still doesn't support pirated games to be launched through their launcher
Yes it does, you can manually add games and even select specific executables.

>> No.6539890

Yeah, but you can't link manuals and it's very, very janky compared to just allowing pirated games to be synced up to GOG Galaxy 2.0 automatically.

>> No.6539893

ORIGINAL release date, not the date they were added to GOG. Some publishers incorrectly set release date to 2015 or whatever, so that link is missing a lot of stuff. You also have the problem of shit like Indiana Jones listing earlier than Zork.

>> No.6539896

If you steal, you can't expect full support and functionality. The absolute state of poorfriends.

>> No.6539901

But as I said, Galaxy 1.2 had support for pirated games, the only catch was that you can't connect online via. Galaxy if you don't own that game.

Use 1.2 then. Nothing stopping you. Feel free to upgrade to paid copies of your stolen games if you want the full functionality of galaxy 2.0.

The Ultima 4 modules and Dance with Rogues. The Kingmaker official expansion which is not included, should also be downable from the fansite unless Beamdoge claimed those too.

Dance with Rogues' is kinda wonky though.If you attack anyone outside of dialog options, EVERYONE becomes hostile and breaks the game. It's also one of the many modules that expect you to use only fighter/rogue classes, otherwise it's probably unbeatable.
