If you don't think the discount is good, or (which would be much more sensible to look at) you don't think the games are worth the price asked - then just don't buy them. It's that simple. But acting as if you're being ripped off, calling GOG a "shady place" and saying that you might as well pirate... just because they offer you a discount on popular games... I can't fathom that.
I think historians will look back on this generation and just call it the "entitlement generation" :/
Sadly, I don't think he was being sarcastic... he truly feels that because another sale was a straight up 60% off, then ALL sales must forever be that to meet his expectations otherwise he was being wronged.
Sadlier... his post was not the first of complaints. People claiming that 20% off wasn't a sale, among other things are riddled throughout the thread. In my experience... no matter how selfish you are... you really don't want a company to take a loss on sales. If they do they will have to make up for it in other ways and they will always come back to bite the customer when that happens. No matter how spiteful or ego-centered one can be, it is truly in their best interests for GoG to actually make money. They typically just don't realize this until its too late.
I like to look at it from a mathematical viewpoint.
Fact - GoG did not raise the price of any games for this sale. All games that were 9.99, were 9.99 for months if not longer BEFORE this sale.
Fact - 7.99 IS less than 9.99. Let me repeat... FACT!
Argue for yourselves if you think that the smaller number is an insult, but I hope it falls on GoG's turned ear as its forgetting some basic principles taught in the few years of a child's schooling.
If GoG were to read too much into the complaints (and they seem smart enough not to), and they decided to sell games cheaper than they could afford to, you would start to lose services like patches, server stability, permanent access to purchased games, new developers added to the catalog, etc, etc to help make up for the loss.
This is just my 20% anyway
