Oh GOG! Another freaking sale!!!

Yes, just because I didn't buy anything in the Winter sale, GOG have now tempted me with the New Year's Resolutions Sale of all things

So, my New Year's Resolution for 2018 is to not succumb to the temptation of the unholy serpent that is the GOG Sale

They'll probably add No Mans Sky to your account if you don't buy anything as punishment

I would go for it if they added all the defunct games that have been removed from Steam

GOG has removed quite a few games too over the years due to licensing issues only to have some come back! But GOG just seems to have become an indie shovelware portal now flogging any old crap, just look at those so called 'movies' for example!

When they started adding overpriced game, I've lost interest in gog.com. Discount on overpriced game places it @ normal price. Since then I have purchased only 2-3 games.

The issue for me is they are DIGITAL downloads, not PHYSICAL goods so there is NO PACKAGING to produce, CD/DVD's to press or PAPER MANUALS to print so why are they charging such ridiculously high prices?

I'm sure you'll keep paying though seeing as you have over 9,000 steam games Have you calculated how much all those games cost you?
