Gog is one of the few services, maybe the only one (?), that does not make the installation of a gaming client mandatory. Customers may download games individually from the service to install them directly. The company's focus on DRM-free games is probably one of the core reasons for that.

Gog Galaxy 2 is available in open beta currently. The optional gaming client introduces numerous new features including cross-platform game and friend management options to the client.

As far as deals are concerned, there are plenty. While Gog's selection is heavily focused on classic PC games (the site was previously known as Good Old Games for a reason), it has become the home for independent games and several mainstream games as well.

Here is a list of personal recommendations:

You find plenty of classic game series on Gog discounted currently including Wing Commander, Heroes of Might and Magic, Star Wars games (Kotor, Jedi Knight), Anno series, Settlers series, Sierra adventure games, classic DnD role-playing games, Civilization games, Ultima series and more.

Closing Words

I prefer to buy games at Gog whenever possible over buying them at other online stores. The main reason for that is that Gog games are DRM-free; means: I can still play the games on my devices even if Gog ceases to operate, games get removed from the service, or companies fail to renew DRM licenses.

The Steam Winter Sale will start on December 19, 2019.

Now You: have any game recommendations?

    It’s actually 3 games:
    – Wasteland 2 Director’s Cut
    – Wasteland 2
    – Wasteland 1: The Original Classic

    You get the unique gift redemption url for the first one by going to Games -> Wasteland 2 Director’s Cut -> More -> Serial Keys.

    I’ve never played the remastered bersions of BioShock 1 and 2, even though I have them on Steam. Probably I should give them a try. I remember the originals, especially 2, were terrible on wide displays i.e 16:9 aspect ratio. Great games despite of this technical flaw.

    If you’re in a developing country or region, Gog has regional pricing.
    For example, both Bioshock games are $1.75 each for me.

      Regional blocking also especially in Germany. (Unreal Tournament GOTY)

      Tor Browser is recommended.

      Publishers who adopt a Regional Pricing policy can be commended. That said, I do feel that it does assume that people living in more developed nations who wish to acquire the product will all be able to afford it. The is obviously not true.

    Many years ago I bought a game for PC called Circuit Defender. While is only had basic graphics, it was quite fun and addictive. In order to play the game an online license check was required. That worked fine until the game was sold to another company. Suddenly all those people who had bought the game from the original publisher found that their licenses were now invalid. I even emailed the new published and included a copy of the email sent to me upon my purchase of the game, proving I had a valid license. The new publisher didn’t even have the courtesy to reply.

    While the game only cost $10, it still annoys me that I was never able to play it again unless I bought a new copy, which was out of the question. No way will I support a publisher who treats people like that.

    So yes, I totally agree that GOG is GREAT.
