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!

Where's Pool of Radiance?? Where's Curse of the Azure Bonds?? Where's Hillsfar?? (All 3 Strategic Simulations Inc.'s Forgotten Realms/D&D RPG's from the 80's.) Where's Deathlord?? (1987 Electronic Arts oriental-themed RPG.) I personally would rather play a 25+ year old game than a 10 year old one.

It's no use suggesting tons of old (DOS-)games at this point. I'm pretty sure you're very familiar with "abandonware" and that it wouldnt be a (legal) problem to put up many hundreds or even thousands of those old games up here.

But i think it's best to stick to your believes as you did in the past. Release the gems when you have the chance to and only do it, as long as it's "easy playable" on a modern computer. I for myself dont have any problems configuring a DOSBox-game by myself (i even have many old PCs down to 386's) but you should think of all of your customers.

The game, wether it's "very old" or not, should at least run "out of the box" without any problems and restrictions at all!

But after all... i've seen many, many "new" titles around here. I'm not sad about that... Puddle for instance is a truly great game but you should stick with the site-name at most! good OLD games :)

I think this would definitely be expedited if we saw some more publishers jump on like Take2, Microsoft, and LucasArts - hope something is worked out and announced for E3 this year.

I agree. There seems to have been hardly any good *old* games released recently, compared to an over-abundance of new and indie releases. I come here for the affordable old games, but there's been hardly anything of interest to me in the last few months.

I really would like to see GOG get back to what they were founded on, releasing old classics (and really they've only began to scratch the surface of what's out there. These days it seems like GOG is more a store for releasing over priced indy games than 'good old games' like they used too. There's nothing wrong with GOG broadening their sales stock, but they shouldn't forget their roots either. I used to be buying games here quite regularly, but now it's once in a blue moon I see a release I want.

OK, my vote would be for Dungeon Siege I & II by Microsoft, and maybe their Fury shooter, and the No One Lives Forever games I and 2. Microsoft is stopping support for XP in just 3 days from now, so either I fix my old XP computer just for these old games, or else hope GOG can port them to Win7. Even with an XP virtual machine running on Win7, DS does not want to install.

PC or computer in general is what I want. There are thousands of games on home computers I never got to try, and I wish I could access them! And GOG so far has been the best way to do it. Please, GOG, please bring us more old classics and not-so-classics!

Well, I can't agree more... Except for the fact that you mention old PC releases.... I want GOG to bring all kind of classic games, regardless of the original platform.
I want old Genesis, Neo Geo, MSX, Saturn, PSX, Dreamcast, Amiga, and so on... games released here. I hope GOG grows and grows until they have enought market influence to convince companies like Capcom or Treasure to release some classics here so we can continue playing them when all old consoles have died!

I truly do appreciate everything that has been done to keep GOG as an "old game" PC release vendor and really hope that it prospers and becomes into something that shows the rest of the Online game vendors to show this kind of compassion for games. I hope that Steam will actually learn from you guys and truly appreciate the games that have been added to these libraries, thank you so very much.

Also I would like to see Warcraft and warcraft II with Expansions to this library.

Thank you so very much yet again :)

@yellowblanka: Apparently they've picked most of the low-hanging fruit and a lot of the remaining games are either owned by companies that don't want to listen to the DRM-free pitch or are just plain in limbo when it comes to figuring out who actually owns them now.

For example, apparently Disney owns all the LucasArts adventures and, so far, has refused to consider DRM-free distribution. (Ironic, considering how they're some of the easiest games to pirate.)

The "Old" in "Good Old Games" was what made them unique/worth a visit IMO - finally there was an affordable, legal way to obtain and play these older titles. If they insist on releasing mainly newer/independent games they are now in direct competition with Steam/Gamersgate/every other digital retailer vs. virtually dominating their initial niche of the market.

Agreed. I mainly use Steam for newer releases, and I love GOG because a lot of older games that aren't on Steam are available here and well-optimized for new machines. Personally, I'd like to see Grim Fandango get a release if at all possible. It's not available anywhere except a physical copy, and research leads me to believe it's quite difficult to get working on new machines. I've wanted to play it ever since Psychonauts made me a Tim Schafer loyalist, and I'd love it if it was made available here.

GOG.com is sadly lacking in some seriously good old games... sorry.

The finest city building game there ever was in Emperor : ROTMK is still not here, there still is no Homeworld (Although now Gearbox is doing a remastered edition I don't know how that's going to go), there's still any number of the old Sim games (that don't stink as bad as the new SimCity) that aren't here yet.

And yet much effort is being expended on shackling the prices to regions and bringing in newer, shinier games. This makes me sad.

It amazes me that the GOG team believe they will have exhausted all possibilities for old games once they sign deals with LucasArts, Microsoft, Take2 and Bethesda.

They need to go onto mobygames and search by year just to see how many games from the 80s-90s they're missing. Even when you account for the number of those games that are too terrible to even be worth adding, the current catalogue of old games on GOG isn't even 10% of what it should be.

The first GOG games that I bought were the games that I used to own. The next GOG games that I bought were other classic games similar to those that I used to own. I understand the marketing for newer games, but I want more of the classics. There are just so many more "good old games" out there that should be available. Please work on getting more classic games!

personaly I would be very happy if someday I could find on GOG games, that I bought distributed on 3,5 inch floppy disks :) or early CD games :) few of them got unique gameplay which died with floppy disks era ;)

in Poland there was a game reseller named LK Avalon, few of "their" games are present on GOG, but few are not (for example: Kosmos), and that's a pitty.

or maybe anybody seen a good old Albion RPG game here?

First I'd like to say to GoG, thank you for all your hard work in keeping the classics alive and available. Like most here, these old games are what I grew up on, and had countless hours of enjoyment playing them. With that said I'd love to see GoG continue not only offering new releases but keeping with what GoG was is all about, Good Old Games. Of course with all the great games, there is some I'd love to see here.
Old SSI Goldbox Games
Phantasie Series.
Phantasie III was a real treat. First RPG I had played that allowed races like Minotaurs, sprites, goblins and many others, and its combat was awsome, where else back then did you have to worry about losing a leg, arm, or worse decapitation in combat. Just awesome. I'll stop reminiscing now, lol.
Thanks again GoG.

I would like it if they could do both. If I am going to buy a new game, such as the Witcher 3, I would rather spend my money buying it from a publisher I like and wish to support. That being said I do really like the old classics and the classic old games are what brought me to GOG in the first place. There are still a lot of Good Old Games out there that I would like to see brought into the fold.

Keep up the good work GOG!
