I haven't said anything that wasn't true and I've been here long enough to know that the site was originally clearly dedicated to old games. And not ambiguously either. It always irritates me when folks that came here well after the beta period lecture the old timers about what the site is and isn't about. We know what it was about, we've been here for a long time.It gets a bit old being told that no, no it's always been about DRM free games first.
Also, rant, please, just because you refuse to acknowledge that I have a point doesn't make it a rant. It means that you don't want to admit that I'm right.
Not surprisingly though, you're not right on this issue. Most gamers on GOG are happy to see the new games as well as the old, so just because your opinion is different does not make you 'right'.
(And yep, I've agreed with you in the past on some things you say but, sorry, not on this).
I've been in business for more than 30 years with some pretty high-level jobs, including running my own online businesses, and I can absolutely guarantee you the reason GOG went with new games as well as old is their old business model wasn't working (no company changes a business model that is successful), so they had to introduce other ways to make money.
One of them was going with adding new indie games like Grimrock. That game sold over 40,000 copies for them, FAR more than most of the old games combined have ever sold (which is a HUGE indication their old business model was failing).
So....like I said, you either want GOG to stick to selling old games, and be out of business soon, or you accept that they add new games too and go with more of a DRM-free focus (which, btw, I'm convinced will be a HUGE deal in the near future and will bring more and more gamers to GOG) -- which then makes the site much more likely to stay in existence, therefore, keeping old games available for those of us who still want them, and adding new games at great prices for those who don't.
I'm sorry I just don't see what all the aggravation is about = unless you're rather see GOG go out of business than be 'irritated' because of the new games??
