Continue to add more 'good *old* games'.in progress

Added byHarmonica's avatarHarmonica

Since GOG is rebranding (unbranding?) itself, acronym wise, for understandable reasons, in order to add more and more new games, I would like to add a wish for continued (and in fact, overwhelming) emphasis on providing older games, the likes of which are hard to track down and/or get working on modern OSs. Whilst it's great to see the site becoming an outlet for contemporary releases, I think most people's love of GOG stems from its slant towards older (and indeed ancient) PC releases. So for that reason I add this wish so that users can show their preference for GOG to continue to add a lot more old games in the future, and perhaps redouble their efforts to obtaining the sales rights to older games!

Mhm, i can't help it, but with Sierras Gold Rush now on Steam, and some days ago Gunship! too, maybe GOG isn't able to get GOOD OLD GAMES anymore with a second, so much stronger player like Steam on the field?
Kind of sad to see these to pearls only at Steam, but not here at GOG.
Come on guys, say something to us, your customers of GOOD OLD GAMES.

Grew up with amiga, PC Dos and psx games. The love of old games still remains in my blood. That's why gog and theisozone are my favorite places to be. But lets hope that gog doesn't go the steam way (mainly new games)
GOG need to be pure old games, although i like lots of indie games like bastion, house of dead ninjas, electronic super joy, super meat boy, valdis story etc. as well.
I'm mainly using a program called maximus arcade which is a frondend program for emulators and roms, plus you can add batch files (pc game shortcuts).
Never liked steam myself and i've always used desura, My Suite (application suite program which you can get from softpedia website for free) and maximus arcade.
GOG (drm-free) and RePacks (pre-cracked games) are the greatest solutions out there in my opinion. But you can also apply cracks/no-cd (and patches if required) to legit steam or retail games by the way. This way you can simply repack them yourself with innosetup compiler or archive them with haozip/7-zip etc.
I'm always using external/portable hard drives for storing repacks and gog games. This way you only have to plug in external hard drive(s) and install or unpack any game you want. Very handy solution in my opinion.

PS: never used win8 in my life and i'll keep using win7 till 2020 or beyond.

I am hoping to find more old and new games here. I for one do not like Steam nor the DRM and requiring to run "Steam Client" though I doubt Skyrim will release here if it did I'd be happy. That said, there is a multi-verse of old games yet to be released on GOG one is Hyperspeed. Also Revenant and Legacy of Kain: Bood Omen 1, the start of a genious series. that said, this is not a topic on specific titles but there needs to be a place to buy old games as there is "shelf space" at a video store to buy old movies like Dracula or Picture of Dorian Grey, superior movies like old games are plot wise superior(for the most part).

I hate to say this, but my guess is that most people are by now on steam and they will continue to buy new games on steam. I for example did only sign up to gog because of the old games. If the focus of gog will now switch to new games I have no real interest in it anymore.
But thats of course only my opinion.

It would be nice if GOG would return to present old Games.
Feels like years since a real gem was presented, last big games were the Wing Commander Series.
What about all those SSI games, the SSG games, pearls like Shanara or the Aerosmith Quest for Fame ("play Steppenwolf!")?
Kind of sad, in a way...

I really wish GOG released more classic games of 1990-1999 period and less indies. Where are SSI's TSR RPGs? Lucas Arts adventure games? Older Microprose and Sierra simulators? 3D shooters of Doom era? Classic RTS like the first C&C? I already bought nearly all pre-1995 games here and most pre-1999 games. Sadly, there is hardly anything left in the catalogue that is interesting for me.

"only a miniscule number use Linux.". 72,185,951 estimated users http://linuxcounter.net/main.html (that's probably more than Mac). In ideal circumstances, selling a Linux game will net you 41,666 customers and $520,820.53 us greenbacks http://cheesetalks.twolofbees.com/humble/ (check Humble Bundle V). In the industry, these actually are minuscule numbers. But, who wouldn't want $520,820.53 more cash in their account?

I was super excited when i saw Theme Park and Theme Hospital as I've always wanted to own my own copy of it however I haven't had excitement since as it's mostly crappy indie games or massive 3D games that require a beast of a PC to play. It'd be nice if games from older generations were targeted as possible. Companies such as CopySoft, Apogee, 3D Realms, Bullfrog. I'd even be thrilled to purchase Prehistork 2 if it ever were made available.

Apart from my very own nostalgia I believe that there are a lot of quality old games that stood the test of time and are still doing marvelously well for a minor group of enthusiasts.

It's was called Good old Games before the rebranding for reasons based upon strong prinipals. Please try to keep at least the soul of such core ideals intact so we can still expect more good old games from you while also expecting nice DRM free indies and great new "AAA" titles from companies like Larian or your very own CD Projekt RED.

I'm excited what the future for GOG holds, most hopefully more amazing games from the past.

I also am a big fan of old games, but often found the nostalgia colored by all the tweaking and fiddling necessary in order to get the games to work at all on new pcs. gog seems to make sure they work before releasing them to their customers, which is rare in online game sites. I just played thru Beneath a Steel Sky with no problems and it was just as engrossing and enjoyable as my first play thru years ago. Some old games just dont live up to memories we have of them but some do. Im willing to give them all a try (and buy) just to see if that old time magic still flies.

I love the old games aspect of GOG. I similarly understand that they need to branch into the new games market as well. It's a win-win situation. You buy the generation of games you want and the gamer next to you buys the generation of games they want. By catering to both they can cut into the market share that Steam have so well monopolized. The more profits GOG make the more stable their future becomes and that's good for us, the customer. So long as the old games remain and compatibility is maintained it's great to be able to buy newer titles from GOG to further support a fantastic service.

Utuzuu: Perhaps I should have said it more clearly. Win8 is the current VERSION of the operating system used by 90%+ of computers in use now. I never meant to imply that Win8 is the most popular version of Windows. Only a small percentage of computers use OSX and only a miniscule number use Linux. The vast majority use some version of Windows.

I never meant to imply that Win8 was popular! I would have opted for Win7, had I been given the choice. But now that I have it, I'll probably stick with, as the worst features have been partially corrected in 8.1. Microbugs has never been known for great operating systems. The same thing happened when Vista came out, and a number of users reverted to XP. But users who buy GOG games are hardly typical. Most computer buyers have neither the expertise nor the inclination to reinstall an older operating system. Most users stay with what Microbugs gives them. That's why most users stick with IE and don't bother with Firefox or Chrome, both substantially superior to IE.

If you want to tell me that Win8 is crappy (or Vista for that matter), you'll get no argument from me! Personally, I never install any Windows version full upgrade voluntarily. Microbugs has a nasty habit of finding solutions for problems that don't exist and neglecting to deal with real problems that do exist.

My point was that, like it or not, over time fewer and fewer people will have XP, Vista, and even Win7, while more and more will have Win8. I don't like it, but that is reality. Perhaps Microbugs will eventually come out with a vastly superior Win9, but I'm not holding my breath!

The fact is that GOG, if they are serious about staying with their original goal of providing Good Old Games that will run on modern computers, they need to make their games compatible with Win8, as well as XP, Vista, and even Win7, which will become an ever diminishing part of the market.

"And like it or not, Windows 8 is the current operating system of 90%+ of computers in use now. "

Hate to say this, but you obviously have not a shred of an idea of actual OS market share. Also, most of Win8 sales are coming from preinstalled versions such as on laptops. However, I have never ever met a single customer who voluntarily installed Win8, but I have had a lot of customers who were really unhappy with their preinstalled Win8 and bought a downgrade to Win7.

I agree with those here who lament the fact that GOG lately has been focusing on promoting new games and trying to compete with Steam, instead of tending to their original goal. I'm sure that it's easier to promote new games than get licensing rights for old games and then getting them to work on modern computers. But then, that's what I came here for. After all, the name of the company is "Good Old Games," not "Crappy New Games." There is a reason they called the 90's "The Golden Age of Games." Maybe they didn't have the sophisticated graphics and animation of the new games, but they generally had far more engaging stories and gameplay!

As an economic necessity, I accept that GOG might have to branch out into some newer games, but they shouldn't lose their focus, which it appears that they have lately. Not only have they added no significant new titles lately, but they haven't kept up compatibility with newer computers. A number of GOG games I have which ran fine on my old Vista computer now crash on my new Windows 8 machine. When I contacted Tech Support, they just brushed it off and asked if I "had an older computer that I could use." Hey, doesn't that defeat the whole original purpose of GOG, which is to get older games running on new computers??? And like it or not, Windows 8 is the current operating system of 90%+ of computers in use now. Unless GOG updates their games to accommodate Windows 8, GOG's original goal will become irrelevant. But then maybe that's what GOG has In mind as it focuses more and more on new games, and less and less on acquiring new "old" titles or even keeping their current games up to date. Sadly, it appears that GOG has lost its soul! :(((

I have to disagree with the comment below me, they've only just scratched the surface of the classic titles available and have somewhat pulled a Netflix with licensing the cheaper, well known games, or games nobody really asked for (Ultimate Body Blows and Street Fighter Alpha 2 spring to mind) instead of pursuing the more wanted games that would require increased legal wrangling. It seems like recently they realized that it's more cost effective to become yet another store for indie/AAA titles than to pursue the licenses for the namesake "old games", which is their prerogative, but it's s shame.

As someone who is mostly here for the new titles I have to disagree. Also there are only so many old titles that can be added, and most of the good old games that didnt have DRM to begin with anyway are already on here. There ar still a bunch missing, but Id rather have them focus on getting as many new games as possible DRM-free in this DRM-riddled market.

Most certainly continue with the old games. But always try to pull in new titles. This is my place in my answer to that other place that doesn't allow me to run my games without running their program at the same time. Use to cause real problems before I had a 24/7 net hook up.

If I didn't check in once a month, it magically forgot who I was and forced me to go online for it to... Remember who I was.

But the old games are just awesome and hard to find. Gotta keep the 'old' in GOG :D

I don't mind the presence of new games and indies. What's more important for me is that they keep the drm free policy which make them champions to my eyes.
They could re-work the categories and filters instead, so that whoever's interested only in old games can find them without navigating through new and indie stuff.

Unrealistic demands for no new games is neither sensible nor beneficial to the community. As a business they need revenue and expansion to stick around. I want a strong focus on old games, mixed in with new releases. GOG shouldn't be the place you go for abandonware while you go to steam for everything else.

All you need to do is a take a look at the site's bestsellers list and realize it's all classic games (except Witcher 2 and maybe a couple indies like FTL or Grimrock). This is the reason people come to this site. I used to constantly browse the site, updating my wishlist and making purchases and playing all the old games I used to love or missed out on. Now I find myself rarely visiting the site because I know it'll just be a full list of indie games on the new releases list. The industry is being flooded by this crap and it's unfortunate because the actual good ones will get washed away in an endless torrent of mediocre indie shit. GOG has lost it's soul and the thing I loved about it. I won't say it sold out or anything like that, I'm glad they're successful and making money off these indie games but GOG and the entire industry is only going to be hurt by this over saturation of indie games.

Lol at comment below me. Seriously, of the "new and coming" games the oldest game is a year 2000 4x4 racing game. I miss the days of seeing all those 80's/90's classics, and they've merely scratched the surface of great games from that time period. I had looked forward to using GoG as a source for all those classic games I may have overlooked in the past but it seems they've all but given up on securing the rights to the older titles and become yet another storefront. It's sad because the site had such promise.
