    Default Good Old Games

    Does anyone here have an account over at Good Old Games? And if you do, what games do you have on there? And if you don't have an account on there, what's the reasoning behind it?

    Here's a list of what I've got.

    Beneath a Steel Sky (free)
    Teen Agent (another free one)
    Lure of the Temptress (yet another free one. And I think that's the last freebie they've got.)
    Earthworm Jim 1 & 2
    Rise of the Triad : Dark War
    Duke Nukem 3D
    Descent 1 & 2
    Duke Nukem Manhattan Project : Total Mutant Mayhem
    MDK
    Tex Murphy Martian Memorandum & Mean Streets (was free in or around that whole Black Friday thing.)
    Divine Divinity
    Beyond Divinity
    Phantasmagoria

    I bought Phantasmagoria recently but haven't played it yet.

    Beneath A Steel Sky is great and Lure Of The Temptress too.
    Before you insult a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you insult him, you'll be a mile away, and have his shoes.

    Yeah, and the fact that Beneath a Steel Sky and Lure of the Temptress are free doesn't hurt either.

    They also have Myst and RealMyst ... which, they're both the exact same game. But RealMyst uses a full out 3D engine for the game rather than the still images. Ramps up the system requirements quite a bit (for the time) but DEFINITELY raises the immersion level for it. It's one of those deals "it plays like you remember the game" because the original Myst I remember going through these gorgeous environments doing this and that ... but playing it now unless it's on a low spec machine is pretty painful. RealMyst with that fully realized 3D engine makes the game feel a lot better being able to pretty much go anywhere.

    That, and they have deals going all the time. Like until Monday right now you can get Sacred Gold, Septerra Core : Legacy of the Creator, Spellforce : Platinum and Stonekeep for a little over 15 US dollars with their half off sale going. Or you can get them individually at half off ... I'm still debating about Stonekeep for 3 fuckin' dollars. :P

    And the games (most of the time) come with all KINDS of extra shit like a full scan of the manual, soundtracks, wallpapers, even fuckin' ringtones. It was awesome to snag Rise of the Triad (great game if you haven't played it) and get the soundtrack with it.

    The only fault I have with the service is that there are shareware versions of a lot of these games (like Rise of the Triad) ... I wish they would put up shareware versions of the games to try them out with the same care they put into the full games.

    Still ... great site. I love it, and even though Steam has better deals sometimes (like with the Unreal games) ... I can't say a damn thing bad about them.

    I love GOG! They are always adding cool stuff and have good sales. They just started added EA stuff, like Ultima and Wing Commander.

    I just picked up a couple of Logitech Wingman Extremem joysticks from Goodwill and been playing some FreeSpace which I got from GOG. FreeSpace 2 has some cool mods out there.

    Here is my list of purchases:

    Indepence War
    Dream Pinball
    Shattered Steal
    Shogo: Mobile Armor Division
    FreeSpace
    FreeSpace 2
    Earthworm Jim 1&2
    The Witcher
    Pinball Gold Pack
    Total Annihilation
    Septerra Core

    I just haven't done that much PC gaming, so I don't have an account on there yet. But I do have an account on Steam. Glad to see you remember Rise of the Triad. That's one game I wish they'd bring back to this console generation, and probably the one that's going to get me to join GOG.
    Originally got Steam so I could play Heretic and Hexen. More games I want to come back.

    Thumbs up Gog.com Rocks

    I have to agree GOG.com rocks, I have made lots of purhcases and will continue to do so because they have quality releases that are DRM free and good prices!

    They have continued adding more EA owned games recently. Dungeon Keeper 2, Ultima 1+2+3 Set, and Wing Commander 1+2 Set are the most recent notable additions, and only 5.99 a piece. Good stuff.

    You mentioned OnLive in another thread, so I'll add that The Witcher is now part of the Onlive playpack
