jphansen80: PC gaming was basically my life during 1996-2005 until I had to grow up. But damn those were some awesome times. Looking at this site, I think I'll be happily reliving many of those moments. Thanks GOG and everyone involved. I've bought Torment and Undying so far, Longest Journey probably next. (I already own them actually, it's just so cheap and easy to buy stuff here.) Wonderful idea, this site, thanks again for making these games accessible again to me and a whole new generation.
Welcome! Enjoy some DRM-free cookies and pizza and stay a while. :)

Ah, "Scanners"...I remember that one. ;)
Welcome to a world where you risk spending way too much money (but you get to have fun doing it) :D
Welcome! I join you in giving a big cheers to Gog!

DireRabbit: Never too old for video games!

I still play, even if I don't put as much time into games as I used to. Real life, work. . .all the annoying stuff that needs to get done gets in the way.

Strangely, the games I play have changed. Used to spend hours at a shot on platformers, action/adventure type games, RPGs, and fighters. Now, I'm more into puzzlers, strategy and simulation/building type games, with occasional short visits to games I used to play. Still into RPGs, but not the days long binges I used to have.
GOG contributed to my tastes being broader than previously. I think it's the promo's that are to blame.

Hi and welcome jphansen80.

If you never played Sacrifice, you should buy it now:
A game most folks missed, but one of the best games in history---as Licurg already told you!

This is my story as well. I came here because I had a sudden hankering to play PS:T and was looking for a way to get my disc version to work. Found a link to GOG on the DOSbox website and it was love at first site. At first I thought there was no way that it was legitimate, but a little research alleviated my worries.

Welcome to GOG and +1.
Welcome, glad you found your way to GOG. And here's another way to show your appreciation to GOG.
Welcome aboard and enjoy your stay !
welcome!
Welcome! GOG is great and the community here is pretty awesome too. I rarely participate in forums and I am fairly active here. It's great!
I found the site a while back - I've collected a small library of GOG games, but haven't really had much of chance to play many of them. One day...

Anyway, I mostly lurk occasionally on the forums, and it's a pretty amazing community - with all the giveaways, I think many of these people are quite insane.
Another Visitor. Stay Awhile. Stay Forever.

I am looking forward to retirement when I actually have the time to play all my wonderful games. I sure hope GOG will still be around or at least an emulator for the x86 to play all these wonderful games in the year 2043. As it is now, I may get 1hr a day (if lucky) to play a random game.

jphansen80: ... until I had to grow up. ...
I started gaming in the 1980s (yep, I'm that old). Over the years people often have told me to grow up. My reply then and now: "Thanks, but no thanks."
As they say: "Reality is for those that can't handle fantasy."
And to quote the great Bob Dylan: "I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now." (I know it's out of context, but since I'm not grown up, I don't care!)

Anyway, welcome onboard and have fun!
