This is a test. Stay calm and buy game series bundles.

Let's try something new. We know that GOG.com users love to have complete collections of game series on their shelves. There's nothing nicer than a row of virtual boxes containing every single game from a series that you hold dear. We appreciate the completionist approach--after all we try our best to have a complete collection of the best games in history in our offer (and we'll never stop following that goal). So, we thought that we might as well make completing a whole game series on GOG.com easier and more rewarding. Introducing: Game Series Bundles on GOG.com!

We offer you the chance to get various complete game series with a 15% up to 55% off discount. If a game belongs to such series, you will find a new button on the game page, which lets you buy a bundle that includes the whole series instead of a single title. It will also display how much you'll save on that deal. If you already own a game from that series, you can still complete the bundle, getting the missing games with the discount. The discount rate is flat, only applies when you get the whole bundle, and varies from series to series.

Just go to any game from the series that grabs your attention to find the new "buy series" button right under the regular "add to cart" button. Once you click it, the games you're missing from the series (whether it's all of them or even just one) will be added to your shopping cart with a discount applied.

Please keep in mind--this is something we're just testing now. If it turns out that this sort of deal is popular with you and that it makes sense for us, we'll keep the Game Series Bundles as a permanent site feature and work towards adding more of them to our offer. For the time being, you get the bundle deals on all the series mentioned below:

Bloodygoodgames: Awesome idea, but........

Unless I'm missing something, if you already own a game in the bundle it still makes you buy it again. Then what? You have an extra code to give away?

Or am I missing something?

EDIT : Never mind. I AM missing something. It does delete the game you already own from the bundle.

Like I said up top -- awesome idea. I'd vote for it to stay! :)
Nope. If you already have one or more games from the bundle you can complete the bundle getting only the games you're missing form the series with the offered discount.

That should not be the case?

However, if you add a game that you already own to the series bundle (as in, you're gifting it to someone), then the series discount doesn't apply unless you add all of the games from the series.

dirtyharry50: Well, I just did a test check on the stuff I mentioned in an earlier post. For me personally, the bundle prices are underwhelming versus leaving the games in the wishlist until a sale comes along with higher discounts. My view might be unique. I don't know. But I've been spoiled by steep discounts which have led to a large backlog and this means I really don't need any particular game "right now" even though for reasons that defy explanation, I'll still buy them on steeper sales anyway.

These bundles do seem nice for folks who intend to buy the games and play them right away. In other words, they want one or more of them right now so it is a nice deal on the series.

How many of the GOG shoppers are in my situation and how many are in the latter I guess is what will determine how well this works in moving more units.

Consumer behavior is a funny thing. There are exceptions to my rules like there are to most rules. When Medal of Honor War Chest released, I bought it right away. It could have waited but I loved the game so much I just wanted it right then, even though I knew I would not play it any time soon. I've been similarly tempted to buy NWN2, now at full price just because I know it is a game I'll love and I want it in my collection now, not later. Why? I don't know. I am crazy maybe? Probably. Lastly, I got paranoid with Atari going bankrupt and there were six titles here I had on my wishlist by them. So, I paid regular price to get them now while the getting is good. Who knows when I might get around to them but I didn't want them to go away on me.

I am definitely in the collector crowd, a crazy group to be sure.
Hey, thanks for your opinion. We appreciate you took the time to lay it out for us. :-)

As was said: this feature is in its test period and we're taking everything under evaluation.

tinyE: and the orignal FF is VERY nice. Buggy as hell which is why it may not here, but it should. Still play it all the time.
One of my favorites. My buddy Josh from college presumably *still* has my CD.

Updated the newspost with proper bundle descriptions and links to the bundled games.

I also included the deal info for each of them (thanks, JMich!).

SirPrimalform: I can't work out whether this is a mistake or deliberate but Post Mortem is missing from the Still Life series bundle. You guys obviously consider it to be part of the same series since it doesn't have its own forum (just "Still Life series").
Post Mortem is now part of the Still Life series bundle with 20% off the whole series.
