If there is a game you wish to have on GOG.com and it’s not yet on the wishlist, please add your wish
on our birthday give us a code for a free $5.99 game or if we but a game totaling more than 5.99, we get $5.99 off our full purchase.
There's always gonna be the one curmudgeon that lives as long as GOG keeps adding games.
This is a BAD idea, they already work hard enough bringing DRM free games to our hard drives, and you want them to give us free stuff?
How about a percentage discount instead? Something like what akcaye just posted or maybe <$10, -50%, <$20, -25% and so on up to whatever the higher price range is etc. Idk if it would have to be limited to a set number of games. I'm sure i'm not the only person to have a xmas or bday spending spree.
I agree with this but it should be capped at 8% of what you've actually spent on GOG + 2% for every year on GOG, minus the value of the previous gifts you've gotten for your past birthdays. First year, you've spent $16 16*.8 = max $1.28 (lets say you get a $1 game) Second year (over 1 year on GOG), you've spent $24 more ($40 total): [40*(.08+.02)]-1 = $3 max, let's say you get a $3 game. Third year (over 2 years on GOG), you'e spent $20 more ($60 total): [60*(.08+.04)]-(1+3) = $3.20 max etc.
Generally, I don't like the idea, but what about something like this: if you buy 2 $6 games, you get a 3rd one for free?
To be honest, I don't agree with this idea. It's that I don't like getting free stuff (who doesn't like free stuff?), but if you could make another account with a different birthdate on it, that would be exploiting the system, if you ask me. A workaround for that, however, would be to only give out a "birthday game" to those that actually purchased a game on GOG. Another idea would be to have GOG decide on which game is given out, as a surprise gift (because that's always good, right?). Though in your defense, I have seen Origin give me a discount coupon for my birthday one year, that entitled me to $10 off my next purchase. They didn't give me one last year, so I think they just stopped doing that now. But either way, despite EA's reputation, that was very nice of them. So a birthday discount would be something that I think would work better. GOG would still make money, and the customer would get a game for cheap, so everyone wins.
Does that make me sound snooty or snobby ?... I DUN CARE !!! They do the work that most any other people can't or won't or both..
In other words...LET THEM EAT !!! (they work their butts off to give you games that would take you a lifetime to get to work for the price of a couple latte's..) (Do you have any idea how hard it is to get patches done and solves etc ?) ((Trust me I know..I'm an old Mnemonic programmer..) (IN some cases it's worse than a needle in a haystack..) So..LET THEM EAT !!!
Oh please..it's not like the prices of a game on here aren't low enough (in most cases).. Save a nickel a day and buy yourself 4 games each birthday..
I don't really think they should give out free games. But like a 50% sale or a coupon worth a few bucks would suffice by a large amount.
Just a give us a birthday discount for one game we choose! And lock the birthdate in settings after we the first use of the discount.

Oops, meant kagian14.
Yes, I can see that happening Kondeki.
GOG already gives away too many games, maybe a 2-3$ coupon is a good idea but besides that, I wouldn't recommend because that could be exploited by some users
It would be cool to get a coupon, but honestly I don't want them knowing my birthday - unless I send them an e-mail, or something.
+1 for sale on GOG's birthday
I have to agree with BlueMooner. It's too open for abuse, and quite frankly GOG spoils us enough as it is. This wish just comes off as grabby and greedy, to me.
"Just have a sale, every year, on GOG's birthday.... " +1 this, the other way it's too open to missuse.
Would be nice gesture for customer loyalty... for accounts over 6 or 9 months old
Downvote. Gog already gives you free games for making an acct, and veterans may be around when they gives games freely, such as their recent Fallout giveaway. There's too much room for abuse with people making multi-accounts. I think from a business perspective it makes much more sense to do it on GOG's birthday. This allows them to market it, generating more PR, members know to expect it, people can plan for it, there's no room for abuse, and it's easier for GOG to handle. It's a lot easier to make one game available to all than to constantly be clicking multiple games every day for people's birthdays.
Nice idea, but only for account who spent X quantity of money in GOG (You know, to prevent multi-accounts). They also can give you a big discount for the games in your wishlist!
could make it like a coffee card by so many games worth so much and get one free.
"Just have a sale, every year, on GOG's birthday.... " +1 this It'd be mote than enough.
Maybe for people that have been loyal to Gog.com but doing it for everyone will only make them lose money. They are already giving us free games anyway.
Um...too many birthdays.... Just have a sale, every year, on GOG's birthday....
I like this idea, but to keep this real (as in preventing people from creating dozens of accounts), gog could make this available only for people who had spent over $x on games here, x being a reasonable amount. That said, with the huge number or promos, this really isn't necessary.
I don't think thats such a good idea. The prices of the games are already at a minimum (not to mention the promos). And just imagine the amount of money that will be "lost" for GOG. How many users does GOG have, thousand, ten thousands? That'd be a lot of cash annualy, which could otherwise be used to make even more promos or cut greater deals with publishers, don't you think?
I was thinking about this, but it could easily be taken advantage of. One would have to be a long time member (at least 2 or 3 years), and you would have to verify your birthdate somehow. Somebody could easily create multiple accounts with the same/different DOB to abuse this feature. Otherwise if not a free game, you could get a special discount or some other novelty.
I got, just for signing up before I even put in any credit card information, over ten free games. In the four or so months since, I've gotten 4 more free games. Don't be greedy. GoG already gives out free game at an insane rate, if you happen to get a free game on your birthday, it should be a nice surprise and not something you expect.
GoG has thousands of registered users with possibly hundreds of birthdays every day, can you imagine the cost of such a feature? Not to mention that it can be easily taken advance of by cheating. No, bad ideam just remain awesome gog is all i ask for, even on my birthday.
Why not ? That could be a good idea.
