Ability to view friends list of owned games and wishlist
I very much agree to this. The ability to make public/private lists and share them. Other people who view the list are able to purchase the game as a gift for you. Simple enough.
This was the first thing I was looking for when I joined just now. Shame it's not a feature already - I'd love to share my wishlist and owned games list with friends (friends only) and see theirs as it would make gifts for birthdays/christmas etc so much easier, plus you can see what kind of games they're into so can make recommendations and vice versa
I like this idea as long as it is optional (you get to choose whether to make your wishlist/owned list public/friends only/...) @ rott77 It's already there, on your account page, next to your collection.
There should also be an option to view your own wish list. Unless I haven't found a way to do it yet, that should be included as well.
I'm with this idea. GamersGate has DRM-free games, no mandatory apps, AND a "Buddy List". My brother and I can check out each others' libraries on GamersGate...but not GOG?
Yes, GOG needs this feature. I never get Birthday or Christmas presents over $10. So instead of socks and other junk people like to buy old people, I could just give out a link that would show them a list of what I want on GOG, and it would update as things on it are purchased. THIS IS WHAT THE WISHLIST SHOULD BE FOR!
this needs to be added. because now that I think of it, why do we ave a wish list if no one can see it besides you
Viewing someone's GOG Mixes would be awesome as well!
Make this happen ASAP. Think of how many sales GOG is losing just because it's lacking this feature. Gamers do tend to give games as gifts ;D
A much better wording of this wish would be "option to display my games list and/or wish list." That way it's about the user sharing and not some bloke being nosy.
That's a nice idea and would be useful. Instead of either sharing or hiding the entire list I'd prefer more control with a choice on whether each individual title would be public, or private for the member only. That way you could choose to share some parts of your list but not others if you so wished, or just go fully public or private. Have full privacy as the default choice and don't actually make a public note of there being any further private titles on a list if there are any (as that slightly defeats the point!). The same would be good for titles in our libraries too, but again with people needing to opt in for sharing their games owned to others and privacy as the default.
Also this: "allow a public link to the personal wishlist, so a user can email it to others at his discretion."
make it default to hidden and selectable to display either or both of the owned and wishlist separately
Make it selectable for oneself, to publish the game list and the wish list seperately.
It would indeed be great to be able to have the ability to link up with other community members as "friends" and also make friend lists, and be able to share game and/or wish lists with individuals, groups or all as preferences. Even better if all this functionality was both available on the website, and in the GOG client.
I would like to second Ional's comment - allow a public link to the personal wishlist, so a user can email it to others at his discretion.
yeah, it would be a great feature so i can make gifts!
It's kind of hard to buy people things on GoG as a surprise if I can't see their wishlist to know what they want.
i really support this notion as well. i am getting a friend to start up a gog.com account, and would like to buy her a bunch of christmas games from her wishlist but I can't find a way to do so :(
I would LOVE to see my friends' wishlists, ESPECIALLY at this time of year!
If there's a weak link in GOG's features, it's the lack of a Friends List. I don't think we need constant contact, a'la Steam. But to be able to drop a message and gift a game via a friend's user name would be a big help.
Yeah. Too bad I can't delete comments. I actually have no objection to this lol
And on the other hand I can see how this would be nearly necessary for the gifting function to actually function so voted for it anyway
wait, no. not a way to hide, but having hide be default as well. if we antisocial bastards got that then fine. why not let the hearts share all they like :).
Not unless there is an easy and simple way to hide such things. The last thing(well, second to last, the last thing I want is a client) that I want or need from gog is another social media friendface thing.
Yes please, we need an easier way to gift games to friends. Right now I have no idea if my friends already have all the games if gift making me potentially waste my money.
I'd really be happy with a function like this.
There have been many occassions where I'd have liked to have gifted someone a GOG game... only I can't see what they want or if they've already bought it. Steam makes gifting very easy - at a glance I can see which of my friends has what game as well as what they've been recently playing, meaning I can surprise them with an expansion pack for a game they've spent the past month on or buy them that odd little indie game they had their eye one but didn't mention to anyone.
By all means make public viewing optional, but please give us the option in the first place!
A *publicly acessible* wishlist (like Amazon, Steam etc.) would be great.
I still don't understand why you can't see other people's wishlist to begin with. Makes no sense...
As has been mentioned it should be off by default, but it should be an option to allow people to view your games/wishlist. It'd be convenient for subtly hinting at what you want without outright telling someone.
Only if optional and opt-out by default.
If I could share my list of purchased games AND get a blog/site widget/badge (or RSS feed to make my own) for my wishlist, I'd be all set for the holidays.
Function must be purely OPTIONAL and able to group or select individuals to give different view access , if this feature is ever implemented...
The GOG Experience should be as highly user configuarble as possible.....
Also to be able to add people as friends of chat with people on here would be nice.
I would add my support to this fine idea. Buying friends gifts for their birtdays and on other occasions is great, but asking someone to copy and sent their wishlist to you is a bit awkward. It would be great to have this as an (fully optional) option.
Agreed with everything said so far. I had to guess whether my friend would like his birthday present, which was ok (of course, who doesn't like Thief??) - but it would have been nice to be able to see what he already wanted.
I trust GOG to do this right if they decide to do it, but just to be clear: this should be something that requires opt-in (that is, everything is private by default).
I'm pretty sure that GOG could just give people a code that they can add to their chosen social networkemithing in order to display their wishlist and / or page directly on that.
But what would interest me more (as someone without a Facebook) is the ability to display it directly through GOG.
Maybe do it like this: Gog.com could provide each user with a public link to their personal wishlist, which could be shared on facebook/email/...
I am behind this idea, because what good is a wish list for if you are the only person to see it.
I know there are some who wouldn't want to show their list, but I would love to see an optional ability to set the "visibility" for each wish on the list or hiding the whole list.
This would be an appreciated feature by many, I think, but please allow it to be optional if you want a others to see your profile or not.
