Pay what you want for Interplay Games on GOG.com! Get Screamer,
Freespace, Fallout, and 29 more incredible Interplay titles worth nearly
$200!


Quick Summary:

Pay $34.99 or more--get 32 Interplay Games +
20 amazing soundtracks, and tons of goodies.
2. Own some of the games? Don't worry--you'll get a giftable code.
3. Want to pay more? Sure you can :)

We're really happy we can present Pay What You Want for Interplay Games to you. For the first time ever, a big-name publisher who's been in the business for decades is offering its catalog at a pay-what-you-want price point, and for the next 14 days, you--our favorite gamers--will have a chance to buy Interplay games available on GOG.com for a price that cannot be beaten.

For any price you feel is fair, you will receive 8 games, including greats such as Conquest of the New World, Jagged Alliance 2: Unfinished Business, or M.A.X. + M.A.X. 2. Paying more than the average community purchase will net a total of 20 games, with fantastic titles such as Giants: Citizen Kabuto, Freespace + Expansion, or Descent 3 and its expansion included. Finally, the top supporters who pay $34.99 or more, receive the whole Interplay catalog available on GOG.com--worth more than $190--including the three Fallout games, MDK and MDK 2, Sacrifice, Descent 1+2, Freespace 2, and more.

You already own some of the games? That is not a problem--users who already own some of the games in the bundle will receive a giftable code for titles they have. The holiday season is coming soon(ish), so if any of you is looking for a nice little gift package of unmatchable value for the gamer they love, gift a code for the whole bundle!

Do you love GOG.com more than the words can say? Well, if you can't say it, you can spread the love by sharing, commenting, tweeting, redditing, posting, finger-painting, or even simply approaching strangers in the streets and yelling "Interplay Pay What You Want on GOG!".

Pay What You Want for Interplay Games--don't wait, this offer will not last forever!
This is a great deal for a relatively new user like myself but I can understand why it grates others and so I would suggest this in the future if they attempt it with another large selection of games: make it pay what you want for the three separate tiers instead of just the first.

The person who wants even just one game in the second or third tier is kind of getting fucked over to be pretty blunt and that's stating the plainly obvious. Thus I suggest picking the price for the tier of your liking or a tier that you could create of, let's say, 8 games.

But here's the biggest flaw as I see it: GOG's approach to paying what you want is a little troubling as you can pay just a cent for 8 games. Larian were comfortable with Divine Divinity costing that much because it marked the 10th anniversary of the series and I believe that the reason it's the same here is that Interplay are coming to and, yes? But surely more than a few of the developers and publishers aren't going to want that with their titles in the future and turn GOG down if they ask?

If I were GOG then I'd just avoid the trouble of trying to do things differently and have an average to beat for all games like the Humble Bundle. There's the worry that the majority of people could be total arseholes, of course, but I think that if they kept the games to a minimum, like the 8 we really are choosing the price to pay for here, then they may be surprised by how reasonable the average would be and developers / publishers would be more interested.

Anyway, this is a misleading title again but I think that the people expecting to pay a cent for all 32 when there's gifting keys are being a little unrealistic. But that's my solution of sorts. Let me be the first to say that it's probably a total bullshit "solution" before someone swoops in and points the Bullshit Finger in my direction ala Karl Pilkington, The Bullshit Man.

mk47at: It would be a great deal if the three tiers only determined the number of games you received and you could choose the games you wanted. I know... this could be abused to get all games for 0.04$. The only ones i don't have that interest me are Sacrifice and Descent 3. This makes it a very very bad deal.
Sacrifice is worth more money than you've spent on games in your entire life.

I knew you would bite ;)
As much as old customers may dislike the deal, it seems to be selling games like hotcakes. So good might still come out from this in general.
Nice deal... though I probably wouldn't actually play most of them, and the one I would really want (Sacrifice) is in the third column. Oh well.

I've heard some exaggerations in my time, but this might just take the cake.

As a long time GOGer I've got all the Interplay games I want already. But this is one great deal. Looking forward to seeing more like this in future.
Anyone else feel as if GOG's about to go under or something? Their weekend sales have been 60% instead of 50% and they have been putting more games in them. Now their are doing a pay-what-you-want for all interplay games. That troubles me a bit.

I thought that for a while, but it seems to be part of their 4 year celebration. That and the fact that Interplay are the ones in trouble apparently.
$35 would be worth Redneck Rampage alone. I remember that game as a kid. Only played the demo, but it was hilarious.
please GOG, help me out because i'm really confused by this sale.

i would gladly pay $25-$30 dollars for 10 games if i could choose which ones are included. $11 dollars for 20 games of which i don't want 17 is just pointless to me. and why would i need 32 games if i only want 10 on this list? everyone has their own favorite classic games that they want to have in their collection and are willing to pay for so why restrict customers to bundles and force them to buy games that they don't even care for? it's not a coincidence that you split the games the way you did, you know that people want the games in the third column really badly and that chances are high that they'll buy the full bundle just for these games. i know this sounds ridiculous when i could just get the 32 games for $35 dollars but i just can't agree with this type of sale, i want choice, i want to be able to pay for the games that i personally think deserve to be paid for and i think that this sale is too manipulative. if i pay the full sale price i'll give GOG the impression that i'm totally fine with how this sale works when i'm actully not.

so for now i'm just not going to buy anything.

Nice promo.

Just a suggestion: It would be a nice shortcut if clicking the game names on the PWYW page took you to their game card...
