Prince of Persia
Driver: Parallel Lines (GTA derivative...)
Chessmaster 9000 (another chess game really? Good if you are a chess aficionado, but for the rest of us...)
So, I guess the question becomes, do I want to spend an extra 2$ for the meh games :P. I'll have to mull that over.
Hey, there are only three
chess games on GOG, and Chessmaster 9000 is the best of them. It's great for all skill levels, and the presentation makes up for the fact that there are so many options, many of them free, available on all platforms. I'd recommend it to anybody who has yet to learn the game.
have a soft spot for Battle Chess, though. The NES version of that game, which I would frequently rent from the library, as well as a children's chess learning set, both taught me how to play despite knowing nobody who knew how.
As for Driver, I don't know a thing about that. I bought Chessmaster 9000 last year (along with IL-2 Sturmovik), but I've yet to play any Driver games. I've heard bad-to-mediocre things, and I already have GTA I, II, III, Vice City, San Andreas, and the Liberty City and Vice City Stories, so I'm pretty good as far as that genre goes...
I'd probably get Far Cry and Prince of Persia if it was $5 each, in fact I believe I passed on both of them last year in favor of other sales. I played the Xbox version of the latter (which includes the original two games) some time ago, it'd be great if GOG could bundle the original games with Sands of Time in the future.
I'm saving up for whatever might be in the upcoming Atari games, as well as both Witcher games, so if I'm going to spend $14, it'd be better spent on a game or two from my wishlist, I'm afraid. I have to agree that I'm not fond of these up-to sales, but as has already been said here, it's better than no sale at all, and I'm not unappreciative enough to look a gift horse in the mouth after all the countless savings I've already gotten here.
If I'm going to bicker, I'd much rather bicker about a certain
publisher not having any sales whatsoever
since I joined, but even then, all of their games are $6, so it's hard to complain. :P
