suomainen: Since in € it isn`t that much, i would say that i don`t care. But who knows for how long (thanks to the dumb euro crisis), so i think 5 $ would be a fair and good price.
I don't care either way, was just saying that GOG should get something for the extra stuff they add to the games.

Maybe they should seperate the prices for the games and the bonuses.

SimpleUser: A cheaper price but without the freebies - wallpapers, avatars etc
That'd be awesome for me, cheaper games all round. Those things don't do anything for me.

suomainen: The subject of price is always a tricky one. All things being equal a reduction in price usually means only one winner!

No. Bonuses are free - free for you, free for the rightsholder. They do not generate demand by themselves. The rightsholder expects the game to sell for X bucks per license. If a stripped edition is offered, people will mostly buy the stripped edition, and prices will rise. Hypothetical illustrative example:
"Hey GOG, would you sell our game for $10?"
"Sure! That'll be $7 for the base game and $3 for extras."
"Uh-huh. How many people buy extras?"
"About 15%."
"So that'll be $7.45 per license. Errr nevermind, make that $10 for the base game and $3 for the extras."

OK, makes sense. As long it`s "value for money" i don`t care about 1 or 2 $ more or lesser.

I agree, and I actually think some of the GOG games are more expensive than the same games on other sites even at $5.99
Yes.

Maybe another price group below the current 5,99€ could be created, say 3,99€?
Yes & voted (the site feature).

Home would be better suited for a flash game site IMO. It was short, the plot wasn't anything special, and the graphics weren't either (I know I know, it's an artistic choice but still). The gameplay was cut down to a minimum too.

I wouldn't pay anything for it. Glad I got it from a giveaway for free. If GOG introduced Home, that's what the price should be: zero dollars.

GOG could bundle these or just bump each one up a dollar. I think something else is keeping these off the site.

Also, I prefer that GOG not just allow any old game on its site. That may keep the Humongous Entertainment classics away, but I think it's smart to be careful what shows up here, especially in terms of indie titles because so many are appearing so quickly.
