I was just wondering which currently 'modern' games, if any, you think are likely to become games worthy of being on GOG in, say, 10 years' time (assuming GOG is still operating as it is today, of course). Let's ignore the fact that most games can be bought online anyway, without the need to acquire out of print CDs, etc, too.

I'd suggest Minecraft, except that I'd expect you'll still have 'normal' players until we get full 3D implemented in computers, and so on. The appeal isn't in the graphics, so it'd take quite a major change of that scale (or a loss of interest: unlikely as new players will be growing old enough to discover it) to stop it being 'mainstream'.
Many many indie games of good quality will come here, as it is already happening with Trine, SpaceChem, Deponia, Giana Sisters etc. Additionally some sequels of full price games like Assassin’s Creed (part 2, part 3) are likely to be listed here in some years.
I’m hoping also for for games like SimCity 4, Settlers 7 (without DRM, of course).

And there will be native Linux versions – with version for all currently available version at once. :)
Planetary Annihilation. :D
Though it doesn't matter much since I already bought it.
But I do hope for World in Conflict.

Though as already said many Indie games. Maybe because they are more liberal with their distribution.
Maybe Gog will do something like a DRM hybrid. With newer games that get DRM free while time passes.

Probably just depends how intense the DRM is.

Even then, 95% of games can have that shit ripped out and be functional. Basically, I would never expect something like, say, Battlefield 3 here.

But games like Crysis, Supreme Commander or Saints Row I can see coming here if the publisher would just give the go ahead. Also, World in Conflict is awesome and I too want it here :o
With all do respect to the actual intent of this thread, I found a picture of the REAL future of GOG, specifically all of us.
Attachments:
Spec Ops: The Line, as an example of storytelling in a saturated genre. Even if you disliked the story or the gameplay, it still is an important one. Whether it will be seen as Daikatana or System Shock remains to be seen.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown, as a reboot of a TBS game that proved that you can still make them, and make them fun, though you do have to spend a bit more time with the AI routines, or players will be crying foul.

Not sure of other games, since I don't get that many new ones, but I wouldn't be surprised if Borderlands or Batman Arkham Asylum would be included in a list of good old games in 10 years.
I would love to see all the stuff from Bethesda sold here... Imagine Doom, Quake, Elder Scrolls series on GOG, I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing is happening.

I think Zenimax has some regional issues or some shit.
world in conflict will be looked upon kindly as one of great classic of barbarian age of gaming.
I could see EA stuff like Dragon Age: Origins, Mirror's Edge, and Alice: Madness Returns showing up here.
I'm looking forward to getting some modern games in complete versions with DRM and all the DLC, promo items and what-not down the road on GOG. Archival versions, that is how I see how.

I like a lot of modern games so a list of the "worthy" would be quite long.

I assume you mean Saints Row 2 and The 3rd as the 1st one didn't get a PC realease, as far as I can tell, sadly!
