I think many would prefer if Gog implemented their own chatroom functionality.

Can't really say that I see an advantage in that except for having the same account on the forums as on chat.
Forum chat functionality would be easier for a lot more of the unsavvy (especially for those who dont really want to use IRC - no offence but last few times i went in that room there were like half dozen people sitting there)
Given the variety of topics in this forum why exactly would one use IRC for this site?

Banter without creating a thread which might never be touched ?
There was also good number of inquiries why gog had no chat facility during the insomnia sale ...

Exactly because of the lack of topics; the disccusion there has a different flow and speed, and there's also a large number of people who don't really check the forums anymore.
I don't know, the last time I used IRC I was constantly getting threatened and told off. Nothing that scared me mind you but shit, I can get that hanging out with my parents. I still don't know what an 'egg drop bot' is but it seemed every twenty minutes I was being threatened with one.
So, any offical response from gog regarding chat in browser that is tied to gog.com? (I don't think it would be a huge load on their servers, who knows)
Okay I'm in there now what? :P Do they serve punch & pie in IRC?

Thats generally what happens to IRC chatrooms which doesn't have a healthy population (not using it so no idea). A few mods sit in channel doing whatever.
