Is it possible for users to see each other's already owned games list?

This is so my friends and fiance can rather give me gifts I do not own yet. I dont care about a wishlist, Facebook does that, but a gift is usually an intentional surprise.

Sadly, no. I hope it's coming in the next site update, but people have been asking for that function since GOG started, so...

You could use this spreadsheet (the second tab is "Games owned") and tell everyone involved in gifting you games that they can look up your collection there. That's currently the best way to do it.

Would indeed be fun to see what games people own. I wanna know how many game collectors that we have here ;)
Nope, But i do hope there will be a feature of that soon, Ya its not something that will be put on straight away.

Would be nice if there was a official games owned list and wishlisted games list when someone views your profile :d
This, if all goes well.

Why not just use the GOGMix function to create a mix of all the games you own then share the link to that with your friends?

Once that idea surfaced, but it was rejected with the notion that then it comes up as an irrelevant result for people looking for GogMixes regarding to a specific game.
It would be a good idea if it could be ensured that no one ever votes for them (because then it wouldn't come up among mixes with many votes), but it is not so; I've seen such GogMixes having more than one vote (I recall LordCinnamon made such a mix).

I'm not sure what Mr. Gog thought of that, but people seemed to be pretty OK with it being there so long as it was opt in.

The OP just wants a way to share his list of currently owned games with friends and family so they know what not to get him for gifts. It seems to me that the GOGMix suits this need perfectly. Whether or not it shows up in random searches or whether or not it is relevant to other people is frankly, irrelevant to the question at hand.

I was just pointing out that it has been talked about before (and frowned upon) because I felt it DOES belong here; of course, you don't have to agree, and I respect you opinion as well.

Frowned upon? Since when? Creating a list of all your owned games was one of the reasons GOG added the GOGMix feature in the first place. It was easier than re-coding the user profiles to allow some kind of limited public access to the user's game shelf. This situation here is exactly the kind of thing it was meant to be used for and since there are no rules, implied or otherwise, preventing it, I don't see why it should matter what anyone else thinks about how a GOGMix "should" be used, when all that matters here is how it CAN be used.

True, it can, but you'll have to keep updating it every time you buy a new game. For the purposes of the OP though, it might be sufficient. Can GOGmixes be seen without being logged in? I must confess, I've never used the function. Never saw the point, really.

Yep, they are completely public, don't even need an account to view them. It is kind of a pain to keep updated (my own is woefully out of date), but for solutions that are part of the GOG site (making it very easy for someone to check the list, then immediately buy a gift), it's really the only option.
