Simple post....what is going on? I thought this was Good Old Games at a low price, not Brand New Games at shop price.
There are plenty of sites we can get all the new games....
Not enough shops to get them DRM-free, though. GOG has a rather important role with releasing newer games, because they are pretty much the only site which fully refuses to sell any games with DRM. DotEmu would be another, but they don't seem to have even that many newer games as GOG.
If GOG games had DRM, then I agree there wouldn't be much point. You could just as well get them from Steam, Origin or OnLive.
keep it real, keep it hardcore and stick to bringing back classics guys
The market for bringing only old games is probably not that profitable, especially since so many people here bitch constantly:
"$9.99 for an eight years old game? Are they mad??? Sorry, I'll pay max $1.5 for it."
"Hey what's the deelio here? These games can be downloaded for free from abandonware sites, so why is GOG asking any money for them? They should let us download them for free."
"The game for which I paid $2½ has a couple of graphical glitches on my Win8 beta tablet PC. How does GOG dare to release games in such an unfinished state? I demand everyone's money back, right now!".
Bringing back old games to modern PCs can be quite a lot of work (especially legal and Q&A work), yet the profits and price points are quite low.
