I was sad at first. Then I remembered there's much more to life than 15-year-old PC games and ignored it.
The closing of the site was a little overboard; the reaction from people is way overboard
. And really pathetic. Move on, people.
This sums up my reaction to the news. At first I found myself wondering which games had I backed up these months, then I felt sad that I didn't get Master of Orion as I planned on doing sometime in Nov (my bday).
After reading some of the replies on facebook I thought about the PR stunt someone claimed this to be but refrained from any further waste of time on the subject. If GOG was closing down, I'd just come back on thursday and get in line to download everything I payed for.
Seeing yesterday's video made me realise that this was a joke as was previously hinted. No bankrupt company would waste time on a list of accomplishments which were not important if said company was about to fold!
Was it taken a bit far? Yes, of course. But it did not harm my trust in the company nor did it placed some excruciating revolting sensation on every fiber of my body (as some of you seem to be implying!).
Plus we get some freebies next week!
