If there is a game you wish to have on GOG.com and it’s not yet on the wishlist, please add your wish
Add a per-game button which sends the user an email the next time that game goes on sale.
In the mean time, one workaround is to use the waitlist feature on IsThereAnyDeal.com. (You can specify which stores to watch as well as a maximum price and minimum discount.) I contributed a userscript to ITAD a few weeks ago which makes importing your GOG wishlist a matter of two clicks. https://github.com/ssokolow/itad_importer (It IS linked from inside the "collection manager" dialog on ITAD, but the wishlist import is younger and the "waitlist manager" dialog hasn't been updated yet.)
I support this. Via email and GOG account (when you are online).

All this would require is a scripting engine that would send emails/notifications on the websites to those who select the function under their account settings. I'm no programmer, but this would be possible and a good feature to have!
Nah, part of the fun is figuring it out yourself. We can't expect businesses to EVERYTHING now...? Then again, since Google et al do similar things (albeit with advertising crap targeted at us based on everything we've ever done online in our lives ever), I'm sure it wouldn't hurt for there to be an option to "subscribe to customised sales" or something, which would: 1) send the customer an email weekly 2) indicate ALL current games on sale and/or just the "headline" ones for that sale 3) indicate (with some kind of special note or highlight) games on someone's wishlist that have recently gone on sale. 4) (potentially) using the "other customers who bought this also liked..." which GOG can grab from every purchase we've made in the past, point to games similar to what we've grabbed before or games that GOG thinks we'll like, that are currently on sale. The last option makes good business sense as well as helping the user, as the user may then be alerted to something that he/she didn't think of but might want to at least investigate, which may lead to a sale. Just my $1.25 on the subject...
This promotes a system that actively discourages purchases. We want to show developers that these games are supported without any exploitative, ambiguous nonsense.
There was someone who said "gog.com is not like steam. here you buy games to say 'thank you' to developers" and then went so far as to recommend that we all buy our games here at full price. However, the reason people buy games on GOG is not to "thank developers" but to play older, hard-to-find, DRM-free games that work on modern computers. If a person wants to say "thank you" to a developer, he does so by: a) simply buying the game instead of pirating it and/or b) sending a letter or e-mail to the developer about how great the game is. Wasting money, though, is not one of the ways of "showing thanks".
Furthermore, most (or at least a large percentage) of the developers for these older games don't even exist anymore: the original developers have gone bankrupt, been integrated into a larger company, or sold the rights to their games to other companies. So why would we want to say "thank you" to companies who have nothing to do with the creation of the games that they hold the rights to?
some of your main competitors already have it
I would love this! (but also hate it because I'd spend even more money). As someone with currently very limited disposable income, I can only justify to myself buying games when on sale (and go GRAHHH at GoG when it specials everything I want at once :3). So, this definitely gets a +1 from me ^_^
Although the weekly notifications are a great help to me and offer similar (not identical) functionality, a personalized notification telling you when a game on your wishlist is on sale would be nice, not sure how much it'd tax their systems though...
I buy so many games thanks to wishlist notifications (not just games but Amazon stuff and the like) that it is a little annoying when I don't get an email. Yes add now! :)
Yeah :) because if I find out i've missed something in a sale it makes me adamant not to buy it until it is on sale again in 95% of cases (I have such a backlogue of games to play I'm not even really waiting,).
It isn't that I never pay full price but if I realised I've missed something being much cheaper I'd feel gutted to buy it for much more after that.
Email to say when wishlist items go on sale is a good idea
I find myself leaning this way myself, especially after I convinced myself that Witcher 2 wouldn't be "going on sale anytime soon," two weeks before it went on sale. *facepalm* That stung.
I have a decent size list of games on my wishlist. I don't plan to buy them till I see them on sale. Bit if I miss a sale, I still won't buy them till I see them on sale, so you are missing out on my money sooner.
It's something GOG really should have.
I only buy games and will only buy games when they are on sale. This would make my use of this site much more time efficient and is a standard feature in many other online retailers.
Gamersgate has something like this, I think. It's a good idea.
I too would like the e-mail of "games on my wishlist go on sale", as the weekly e-mail is annoiying as 99% of the time it's games I don't care about.
Subscribe to GOG's email notifications. I find that games that I wouldn't have considered become attractive due to sale prices. For instance, I'm not usually a fan of FPS's but purchased Painkiller Black from an email promotion and am loving every minute.
I´d welcome this feature too. It´d be very user-friendly.
For example, there is a couple of games I already own in a boxed version (sometimes twice). They´re still playable but I prefer a digital back-up copy. $10 for years old game I just want to put on my e-shelf seems too high and it´s not my mistake that a publisher used to ignore Internet for so many years. Thus, either I buy these games at a lower price during promo or I won´t.
gog.com is not like steam. here you buy games to say "thank you" to developers. so buy it with full price please:)
Alternatively, an option to "email me when a game on my wishlist goes on sale" would also work and is probably easier for both the users and the developers.
