Once G.O.G, start selling mediocre PC games, it will become just another retailer and the community spirit that exists now would dissipate. While games don;t have to be classics I would say they would have to be games that garnered high 80 to 90% reviews. As most of the titles mentioned in this thread did. Even User reviews on Gamespot only gave Quarantine mid 70's scores while saying it was okay.
Since when did jaded game journalists become infallible? They piss on good games all the time and praise overhyped trash.
These are the same people that expect to get paid by publishers for a good review.
Do you only play games that other people tell you to? How pathetic is that!
Everything you wrote in that chest thumping diatribe of yours just tells me that you don't anything about being a gamer. It sounds like you spent 25 years just reading reviews by other people.
There a many games out there both old and new that are absolutely fabulous which never gained any mainstream attention.
My point from before still stands. You don't have any special qualification to declare what is a good/classic game especially if you rate all games based solely on review scores.
Actually, in light of your so called "experience" It seems that I have more of a right to make those sort of claims than you. (not that I do have that right)
