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.

Pay What You Want for Interplay Games--don't wait, this offer will not last forever!
Sorry, only going to pay 1$ because I have most games in the other 2 tiers and all I want is conquest of the new world. Too be fair, I now have a soccer game in my library. ><

mobutu: Dear GOG: please make all the games in the promo clickable so we can visit their game card pages when we want to see more details about them.
I'm sure this is very easy to implement.
Thanks for this great promo!
Thank you GOG for implementing the requested feature.
You're great!

Bloodygoodgames: I don't think some of the whiners on here too think about developers and publishers reading their comments, but they do. Sure, the whiners want Lucas Arts, more EA games, etc etc etc
I do not really see why anything that is not a 100% positive feedback should be regarded as whining. And I also do not see the need to lash out on and insult other people over this, like you do.

I like GOG, and I expressed the reasons to them why when they had the annual survey, ( and by buying games they offer) so I feel I have the right to express if I do not agree with some of the customer services they provide.
Qwertyman also has a very good point: most of the games here are quite old, and you should not be expected to pay too high a price for them, especially, as he said, most people only pay for the ability to use the software on newer systems. And these old games are certainly not the main source of income for the publishing companies.

I do not agree with this idea of of `Pay What You Want`. I`d rather prefer something similar to what they did with the DnD games: the more you buy, ( and you can actually choose which ones to buy) the higher the discount gets. That would not only ensure that the customers get rewarded for using GOG`s services more, but also eliminates the fact that most people would just grab the games for the lowest amount of money, therefore both sides could walk away satisfied.

If someone earns less than 12$ a day, maybe s/he would consider better what to spend their money on. Believe me, I do not have unlimited resources either, and that`s why I` d rather not buy games that I know I would never play, and one of the reasons why I chose to play older games. Just because I`m poor does not mean I have to be happy with something cheap that is of no use to me.

The selling numbers might look nice, but most of it could come from 0.99 purchases.

I actually think that the best of this weekend`s news is that GOG is making games to be playable on Mac. I am not a Mac user myself, but I find that this step is a good one for reaching out to a wider customer range.

Nice post there szablev.

I feel the same way as you stated in your post. Although I mostly play older games because they don't make them much the same anymore, like turn-based or ones with loads of role-playing stats.

Indeed. I use to post and sometimes try to help with game problems people had, but I stopped posting due to the sheer amount of people that act like that on here. An internet site takes on a personality, and unfortunately, they turned gog.com into a safe haven for people that feel they can insult others and "troll" as much as they want without consequence.
Too expensive...

Games do not only cost money but time as well. I hate having games in my collection I don't like or play. I wanted JA2-UB and Conquest of the New World. Ordinary sale $2.99 for each. The other 6 games have a negative value of $3 to me, so I paid $2.99 for the 8 games.

I hate selling packs of games. Makes no sense when you have digital distribution.

a negative value?
i bought the tier1 games for myself.

im now considering buying the tier2 games and give the repeat games to my friends, but will all the repeat games come on one code or i will get separate codes for each game because i have several friends i want to share with.

All will be listed on one single code. I was definitely a bit frustrated to find that out myself.

thanks, that was critical info, because i can only give to one friend instead of three.

yyahoo: ...Heck, pay 1 cent multiple times....
Wonderful, marvelous idea. I would have that dollar to spend to buy me a thousand games, only I don't have the time for it...

But for fun and for lowering the price of the next tiers for people really interested in, I made the 1 Cent transaction as a gift since I don't want the games cluttering my shelf.

Now I am curious how my bank will round the 1US Cent into Euro Cent or if they will think this is a joke. :)

Why not give the other 6 games a chance as well? I can vouche for M.A.X. and VR Soccer being good games.
