Rewards for being a devoted GoG Customer

Added bynoliveking's avatarnoliveking

I think that GoG should put up a system so that after a set amount of time (a year or something like that) if you've spent X amount on games you get a free game for your devotion to GoG! Of course there might be limitations like having the more expensive titles being restricted (Witcher 2 as an example) but I think this would be an excellent idea that would encourage people to buy!

Voted. I made a post similar to this a while back, bit of an experiment. Ironically I'm looking for it now as I have to have out a couple of gifts. While I did it for almost solely for academic reasons, the argument about the big spenders been recognised (if they wish) is certainly valid. I have a vested interest in seeing GoG succeed, for that an adequate incoming is required which GoG won't find from the tiny spenders who only come out on "specials".

I'm not a big fan of this as suggested, but I wouldn't be averse to them giving out free copies of low-rated (crappy) games to collection-obsessed nerds like me who own nearly every game in GOG's catalog except for the crappy ones.

(And the ones I already own via Humble Bundles but, even for those, I'm re-buying them through GOG at a glacial pace to show my support.)

This makes me wish there was a "downvote" feature for the wishlist. The cost of administering loyalty programs just drives up prices across the board.

Totally agree with all the comments against this - GOG is about the best value, most rewarding distribution platform out there. Think how many games they have given away even when their sales perform well (eg. Fallout 1, 2 & Tactics most recently). Asking for too much hinders GOG's investment into continuing to source them Good Old Games.

This gets a downvote. GOG already takes fantastic care of its customers, and I see no reason at all to start some kind of loyalty program.

The reward is not having to deal with Steam.. also less trickery because reward/loyalty programs' discounts drive regular prices higher.

To the people who ask for discounts, etc. I do not agree: GoG is small, they need the moola (hey, who doesn't?).
Their product is E-X-C-E-L-L-E-N-T: customer gets well-packaged good cheap game & GoG guys get money: that's the equation.

Personally I hate 'loyalty' programs: it always feels like someone is trying to f-k me over for a few extra cents in the background somewhere. Same reason that DLC's make me want to take up cannibalism (or at least get a few pigs and a good stereo to train them with - mhua-ha-ha!)

I am speaking as a VERY devoted customer: the only thing I really won't buy are those full-price new games. But I do have them wishlisted... heh, heh.

How about an extra vote (i.e. the ability to double-vote, triple vote, etc) for every 50 games you own? I'm just asking, since I voted for Oni and Aiken's Artifact last year sometime (and Hellgate London just now)... and would like to air my opinion again!

I feel disenfranchised! Har!

The only reason I would want such a feature is because I am greedy and covetous to an irrational degree. My reward is for being 'a devoted GoG Customer' is not having to put up with Steam, Origin, Windows Live, or any other 'services' who think that the way to woo me as a customer is to treat me like a criminal.

Though I would like to be able to mark games I already own. But that is another wish for another time.

I wouldn't mind that, but I doubt it would ever happen.
Still something like an occassional extra discount code, either in % or $, would be nice.
there could be some limitations, like not valid for games currently on sale, valid only during a certain period, linked to an account, can't be used to purchase gifts, ...

I guess it's not really a reward, but I second the idea of building up the old games catalog. That's reward enough for me which I would gladly pay up for. The old Mech Warrior games, the AD&D Gold box games, maybe in the far future old console games.

The reward I want from GOG is more DRM games brought here DRM free.

Grid, Dirt, Fuel, Overlord 2, Crysis, Grand Theft Auto 4, and so on. There are so many games I want to play, but I won't deal with Starforce, Secorom, GFWL, Rockstar's service, UPlay and so on.

Hm... while at first I thought this would be nice, I'd rather the GoG team continue doing what they're doing. Better to get more great games on the site than start playing favorites. This site's ease of access, class, and customer service ARE the best perks of all. It's part of why so many of us really, truly appreciate and feel attached to this site as opposed to other ones. It's no easier to get games now than it was when I instasplurged on Master of Orion 2 when I first came across GoG. And, in the same way that all my friends I've recommended this site to love it like I do, I don't think GoG is great the way it is.

GOG could implement a plan that goes along these lines: when you buy a certain number of games you get a discount on the next game you buy. Another plan GOG could implement is to have a small, permanent reduction in price for games for buying a lot of games.

Not too sure if they have something like this already but I think it is a fair award for being a hearty consumer of old games.

GOG's games are already cheap enough, and DRM-free on top of that! So I would only agree with this suggestion if the rewards wouldn't be coming out of GOG's pockets, such as achievements displayed by the site, etc. And even those aren't necessary, if costly to implement. C'mon, guys, you already get rewards for being devoted GOG customers: you get to play a lot of great games without DRM for very low prices!

If people get a reward only because they have stuck around then that makes those just joining feel left out. I know others who have GOG accounts who have been here much longer then I have, So they have picked up extra free games along the way. Yet they may only have bought 2-10 games from the site. I on the other hand joined less then a year ago, and now I own over 200 games on GOG, because I enjoy playing a wide variety of games. The thing is different people here want different things from the site and by GOG treating us all as equals, we all get to enjoy the games and what this site offers. So we can all feel rewarded for being here. So GOG should not just be rewarding members for buying every game they have ever played, or for having joined up at point in time X. We should all be rewarded with reasonably priced games that we want to pay for and play, and so far I feel like I get a very good deal from GOG.

I agree, this would be a nice reward to have. Having said that though, I did receive a freebie game or two in the past for having had a GOG account for over a year or so even though I'd never purchased any games up to that point. I've since purchased almost 1/4 of their catalogue now though, and while I don't have any expectations or sense of entitlement, some freebie games or swag from time to time would be nice icing on the cake of an already awesome deal. ;o)

Only if the reward is some symbolic thing, like badges in Steam Community. Games here rarely go beyond 15$ as far as I can see, this is a totally fair price for maintaining such a nice portal, without DRM, social networks and other corporate crap, like (almost) killing Steam Forums.

Not keen on this at all. I am a devoted customer, and my reward is seeing GOG thrive. Knowing that my money is helping support such a fantastic company is all the thanks I need. GOG has a soul, and we all benefit from that - no matter how many games you have purchased or how long you have been with the website. They already spend so much time offering discounts on their already low prices and they make decisions with the gamer/customer in mind. They have earned my business because of who they are and what they believe it. they don't need to prove themselves to me or anyone else through a soulless rewards program. In most cases, rewards programs exist to retain customers because the company alone can't necessarily do it on their own. That is not the case here.

Sorry guys but I don't like this idea.... Gamersgate.com offers blue coins as a reward for buying games from them - so the more you buy the more blue coins you get which can exchanged for buying DLCs or cheap games (because you get only 5-10% as a rewards). I've bought quite a few games from them, but this system is not appealing in the long term (blue coins you get are valid only for 12 months and then they disappear). But they are soulless website and the community over there is not very supportive. Gog.co is a better store because, let's face it, you get only good games (while on gamersgate there is over a thousand of crappy games) , they are cheap (and if you think $10-20 is too much then wait for sale) and you get extra stuff (soundtracks, art books and so on). Your reward for being a good customer is heaps of good games and great time you have while playing them!!!

GOG is already fantastic. Why do people want to change what isn't broken? I am ecstatic at the low prices and quality of games offered. GOG, keep what you are doing, the way you do it. For those who want more, let them pay full price and never get the great deals that you offer. GOG is the very best game site there is. Period.

I actually think the games are under priced based on the value of game play and sheer awesomeness of the title. However, offering a reward system with rewards like buy two get one free coupons actually save GoG money. The average sell is 50% off while the buy two get one coupon would only be a 33% savings. Using a point based system would encourage more full priced game sells while fooling the customer (including me) that spending our "hard earned" points, that we are getting a better deal.

Why are people against the idea of a reward system? Most of us have credit cards that earn points, or cash back. We shop for the best bundled deal or lowest price. More than likely some of us have signed up for some kind of rewards program, and we think nothing of that. As far as creating a divide between those that can spend and those who can't that is something that is already there. It is human nature to want to get something for nothing, and in the world of consumerism everyone is guilty for wanting more bang for their buck.
