I agree with the guy under me. You sell games because they are DRM-free, GOG. If you start DRMing I will never buy from you again, and I have... lets see... 24 games paid for in my library. I sometimes just spontanously buy games too. I am the type of costumer that will linger with you until eternity if you treat me well. If you go DRM-style, then I guess you're no better than EA, Activision, Ubisoft or Steam, which are all pretty much seen as the Lords of the DRM.

You are a fan favorite for ressurecting old games DRM-free. Take away DRM-free and anyone who offers the same without DRM will be my new shop. Don't do that, GOG, because I really like you!

If you use DRM, you can close your shop.

That is the simple truth. After that decision, you're shop is dead.

You succeed in selling these old games for only TWO reasons:

-- They have there DRM removed.
-- They are uncensored.

After kicking the principles for the second point into abyss, at least for the german customers you have only one valid point.

Otherwise we can "lend" our games from steam, and be done with it. No need to buy a SECOND DRM version, instead of replacing a DRM version with the real game.

I'm now in the process of buying/entirely replacing my steam library with gog/amazon-only games, (save for valve's exclusive titles of course) as it would be a waste of money buying, and in every case not being able to buy their games due to not having internet access at home...

That has to be one of the most idiotic and self-defeating marketing practice that I know of...To actually make your product potentially inaccessible to those of whom you're marketing to!

...On the other hand, that just sends GOG more customers their way...

To Valve/Steam: Never mind, forget what I said, you should continue what you are doing, no, really!

Now that I'm looking at it, saying "not even IF Steam is the only way" followed by talking about something that had a pre-Steam alternative might have been unclear.

What I meant to convey was that, if a game used to have "CD check" DRM but is now online-only, I'll find a used copy. If a game was always online-only, I'll play something else... even if that means going back in time.

(Tech-wise, I had a sheltered childhood, so I'm still discovering old shareware "everyone knows" which I never played as a kid.)

I don't use Steam even IF it's the only way. In fact, just a few days ago, I went on an eBay and Kijiji (Canadian craigslist competitor) spree to buy used copies of a bunch of pre-Steam games that GOG is unlikely to get any time soon.

(eg. Morrowind + Expansions in the form of individual CDs manufactured before Steam existed.)

I'm with many that have already said this, but GOG's fair policies and no DRM make this my place to purchase ALL my games, unless STEAM is the "only" way. I've purchased a few games off Steam in the past, but now I wait to see if GOG will get around to having the same game DRM free! It's a NO-Brainer!

I used to purchase all my games from Steam until I discovered GOG. The DRM free software is the main reason I shop at GOG and now I come here first to see what is on offer. The purchase ratio to date is about 15 games on GOG to about 3 DLC on Steam.

Hopefully GOG grows and I can rely on it more and more. Keep up the good work GOG!

I would like to echo what many people have said before. I LOVE GOG, mainly because they are DRM-free and they do everything the right way. I used to use Steam all the time, but when I heard about GOG, and their stance about DRM and treating consumers fairly, I almost buy all non-exclusive content on GOG. I truly hope GOG will stay true to their roots, and thrive and prosper, showing the whole world that you can have a viable business just by treating customers right.

Hi guys.

I would like to say it on this forum:

GOG installers are not connected in any way with Graphical Installer for Inno Setup (www.graphical-installer.com).

This is completely separate product and GOG does not use it at all.

As I am one of the authors of this software I heard some rumors connecting our software with GOG.

Gog uses own implementation of Inno Setup which uses different mechanism than Graphical Installer.

Thanks!

I'm not surprised. GOG's complete unwillingness to accept payments through bitcoin (when Microsoft, Steam, Humble Store, Green Man Gaming and pretty much every other online game seller accepts it already) made it abundantly clear, where they stand on technological and innovation issues. Also, regional pricing. It was only a matter of time until DRM became acceptable on GOG (and if you missed it, DRM already is on GOG).

Hallo,

please keep DRM-Free. Many people want to play their games in ten years ago, cause a good game is always good. I couldn't believe what
I've seen on steam. They are selling old games like 688i for abaout 10€. Games that never had DRM original, and now I must be online
to play those old games with something DRM-like.
Get more old good games and if a good DRM-free game costs about 20€ I just wan't to buy it before I have a DRM-contaminated game for
9,99€ at steam or someone else.
What is in ten years, if such companies close their doors? Does anyone care for the gamers in such a case. I don't believe that.
I want to use my software for I have paid any time I want! Independently of any company.
I have a collection of over 1000 games and sims here. About 50% of the companies that have made those games doesn't exist anymore.
If those games those days had Online-Activation, they aren't more than a whole lot of plastic-garbage today.

Yes, I appreciate the opportunity to buy affordable games that run on modern rigs, and I can't speak enough about the job GOG has done getting access to games for us, but it's really the DRM-free aspect that has me willing to open up my wallet and support both GOG and the entities who ultimately hold the licenses to the games made available here.

I place a high value on being able to control what's on my computer and playing games how and when I want, as well as the peace of mind that I will be able to do so today, tomorrow, and well into the future. To me, GOG is proof that if you do right by gamers, gamers will happily do right by you.

For those who place less value on control and peace of mind and enjoy the benefits of having their games managed for them, there's always Steam. The market is large enough to support both, and I hope it continues to be.

So far, I've been happy with GoG. DRM tends to drive some TOWARDS cracked versions of software. I'd rather have a DRM- and malware-free version, and paying for software is fair as long as you can own your copy without some kind of activation or tether. I also should point out that, before discovering GoG, I've been totally put off by the entire experience of buying digital content of any kind - not just software, but music, movies, etc. Seems every sleazeball seller has got some kind of DRM surprise waiting, and almost none are upfront about their methods - you find out after you buy. Even so-called "DRM-free" really isn't because sellers play the game of changing DRM definitions - most now seem to think that anything short of an always-on tether does not constitute DRM, which is just not true. Between finding out the hard way and asking in forums, I just gave up, for quite a few years. But, GoG has given me a little faith. Good work, guys. Now, with that said, a big fat WARNING TO ALL CUSTOMERS: That could change. I've seen trustworthy publishers who I thought were honest, and who I had dealt with for years, silently slip DRM into their product, often a home-rolled solution (e.g. Trainz, beginning with the latest versions of TS12 onward). So, buying digital content even from trusted vendors is still risky and somewhat of a minefield. Watch your back, always pay with a credit card or Paypal, and be careful out there!

I finally took the plunge to buying digital.

I chose GOG.com because their history shows that they care about the games they sell & have enough respect for their customers that they don't hinder their purchases with moronic copy protection crap.

I can & WILL pirate any game crippled by draconic DRM. Why should I pay to be abused, when I can have a better experience for free?*

GOG.com
is doing it right & I will continue to support them for as long as I live.

Cheers!

I am a new user on gog.com. I stumbled across it while looking for places online where I could purchase downloadable games for my new computer. When I saw that gog.com not only had an incredible selection of games, and also a great selection of "old school" games (some of which I really can't find easily anywhere else), and also great prices, but especially a DRM-free model, well, I signed up on the spot and bought a few games. I have been spreading the word to all my gamer friends, both young and old, that there is this awesome website where they can purchase great DRM-free games. I will certainly be supporting gog.com and checking here for games first. As long as the DRM-free stays, so will I.

It's simple, really. I'll never buy anything with DRM in it. Never. And I will not support anyone who supports DRM. If DRM is introduced here, I promise I won't buy anything here ever again, with or without DRM.

However, the fight against DRM doesn't just concern the makers and distributors, but also the customers. There would never be any DRM if all people were like me and simply refused to buy anything crippled by it. In the end, it's us who allow DRM to plague our freedom.

So all those of you who hate DRM, please be more like me, never buy anything with DRM under any circumstances and try your best not to support those who allow it. And most importantly, urge all the others to do the same.

Oh man....I hope these claims that GoG turning DRM-friendly isnt true. If anyone at GoG is reading this, please, as a GoG customer I would much more interested in a few 100% DRM-free games than have a bigger selection with DRM. Like kblazer883 stated some posts down, some people buy from GoG for the sole reason it's DRM-free. Not because we're "pirates" as the control freaks hellbent on more DRM/PIPA/SOFA/etc puts it, but because we would like to actually own copies of a product we purchase (meaning we can play as long as we want, whenever we want with NO mandatory connectivity to some DRM platform, play the game offline with NO online requirement wherever we want, modify the game however we want as long as it doesnt affect others, etc)...DRM removes that freedom. Sure some people may praise Steam to no end all in the name of convenience, but taking responsibility to back up and track our own game data is a pretty small price to pay I think for the freedom non-restrictive GoG games bring. At the risk of going somewhat off-topic, the following links may help understand why so many are against DRM systems, and elaborate on personal responsibility -

I'm sure you can see how those can relate to games and the world in general, why people are not comfortable dealing with restrictive DRM-esque platforms (especially when they're like Steam, installed on their computer). They only ever punish those willing to follow it, instead of the pirates its supposed to prevent.

You folks at GoG are like Batman in this age of greedy, control-happy DRM Jokers....dont give in!
