We want Gog to add more unknown games!

Added byTevosion.480's avatarTevosion.480

We are the group that want more diversity to GOG----- We are the group that want more unknown games to GOG----- We are the group that want to get rid of the majority rule----- We want to show to unknown publishers and developers that their unknown games are still valuable, even today! (The forgotten Games). We don't want Gog to be a website only for the majority, but also for niche lovers! -----We aim that Gog will add one unknown game (with less votes) to their catalog within each 10 latest games released. Not to much asked, Isn't it?-----

I thought this thread was a petition for untranslated foreign games that we never heard of.. I always wonder what other cultures' games look alike.

this needs to be added to the catalog, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_Gate , it has an awesome setting and is based on a great series of books, it's from the early 90's so it has that old game nostalgia factor and is actually pretty fun as I recall.

I hear that Elvira: Mistress of the Dark and Spaceship Warlock are great games, and I have seen videos. They look fantastic to me, mainly because they are FPP puzzles. I would buy them the very moment they come out.

I'm curious as to how all this works. Does GoG have to pay publishers to even add their games to their catalogue? Or do they give a certain percentage of the profit to the publishers every time they sell a game?

If it's the former, we're shit out of luck (for obscure games). If it's the latter.. why not just add every single game that ever received even one vote? (assuming you get the rights to do so from the publisher, of course) :)

I am very curious as to why certain publishers have been turned away. Having played a few games from one publisher, its a hard sell that the games aren't of high enough quality, especially given some of the games already here :p If the game is stable and generally works as a game, why not? I'm all for being protected from "garbage"... but some of the criteria seem to be overly picky or completely misunderstood. Perhaps communication would help as well?

Maybe I'm misunderstanding, but this seems kind of contrary to the point of GoG. It's for hosting great classic games that you can't get anywhere else. The idea is the sell the games people want to play; it's not a democracy. Besides, business-wise they're only going to sell games they think people would buy, so more popular games are more likely to make them money. On the other hand, ecamber has a good point; we'd like gog to release games that we can't currently get anywhere else. Gog wants to make money, but to keep it's credulity, they should at least be releasing a "bad old" game for every "new good" game.

oh, i would love to get a working version of HARBINGER. It's a Sci-Fi Diablo Clone. Apparently barely anyone ever heard of it, but i quite liked it until a quest character disappeared preventing me from progressing any further.

Please add any old games you can get your hands on, even if they weren't critically acclaimed. "One man's trash is another man's treasure", and the "bad" old games are often much harder to find than the "good" ones.

Well, thanks to gog I am aware of many games that I never heard of in 90s and 00s and I would be happy if this tradition continues. There are many games that didn't become popular, sometimes because of bad timing of release (i.e. Nox) or due to other factors. That's a good request!!

Maybe a unknow game is HyperSpeed. It has about 10 votes (including mine) but I think is a enjoyable game. Release it with soundtrack please.

I don't understand the 1000's people that up-vote the likes of Diablo 1 and 2 when Blizzard will NEVER let anybody else resell their prized IP, you can buy it off Battle net site anyway. While rare gems like "Nosferatu: The Wrath of Malachi" only have a few votes, a game like that screams for a GOG re-issue.

Theres a whole lot of semi-obscure games from the mid-late 90s. SOme of them were big on the shareware scene too. What is gog's stance on those?

In my opinion GOG is already doing a nice job at this but I agree that this is an important thing and that more forgotten games should be added. I'm among those people who not only see GOG as an oppurtunity to get a lot of great exclusive entertainment but also to learn more about the history of games and also discovering games that never made it to the top. I want moar of this!

I don't know what game you are talking about !!! ;-) No seriously , at first I thought little of your wish, then I looked up "Eve" in the game wishlist : http://www.gog.com/en/wishlist/games/eve and I saw that it only had had that one vote (I ofcourse added mine instantly). For those that do not know then "EVE was a music and art adventure game" involving musician Peter Gabriel : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Gabriel (Quote : "EVE can no longer be played on modern PCs, due to changes to their operating systems") . Only one vote for the "Eve" game is nuts so you got my vote for that.....

Actually, they are willing to add unknown games: http://www.gog.com/en/wishlist/games/max3 votes as of 04/06/2012, labeled as "completed".

Have you ever noticed GOG only adds games above 100 votes? And have you ever tried to make a game that is unknown, known? My activity, can change only such an small amount of the total of users that are ruling in the majority, that it is just impossible. Thats why GOG should aim to add one "unknown" game within each 10 games released. (Its also fine if it is within each 20 Games, Its just an aim!) And they should remember, that every game can sell when the price is right!. GOG should bring the unknown games to the public, with an lower price then the $5,99 and $9,99 that are handled now. (for example 0,99$ for very old games,and prices varying between $1,99 - $ 4,99 based of the minimum amount of votes (under the total of 100 votes). (or another price form decided by GOG, but they should at least lower the price) Eventually GOG can decide to keep the price low, or raise the price (after a few months if selling goes well) to set it too $5,99 or $9,99. It will encourage GOG to have the biggest catalogue online. Especially DOS-Games are easy to maintain, and keep it online forever without spending to much time to reprogramm it all the time, because dosbox, is working almost on every windows version.

Has it ever occurred to you that you have the power to sway the majority to your favor? Explain to them what makes these 'unknown' games so awesome! Link them to videos showing them gameplay! Tell all your friends on Facebook and Twitter about these awesome 'unknowns'! If you don't at least try to stir up some interest (i.e. spend a month or two doing the above and, possibly, more), then these games will remain 'unknown' for who-knows-how-long.

Its not about games with zero votes, but a game where is a bit of interest. Its says enough then, that more people will like it.

Actually what you said they shouldn't do is exactly what they should do. They're a business, and they're competing with every other game distribution channel. You have to sell as many copies as you can with each new release to make that release worth your time. You only have so much time, and so if you don't make the most of it you get crushed by the competition. If a game is totally unknown, there's a high chance that people didn't like it, or didn't like it nearly as much as other games of the era that it came from, so it probably won't sell as well. If a game goes up on the wishlist, and no one cares to vote for it (an action that is free), then probably no one will care to spend money on it.

That is not point I want to make with this request. Gog will always aim towards getting contracts first with publishers/developers that has a lot of votes for there games. GOG should not do that, GOG should instead try once every ten games to contact publishers of games where a few people voted on. Now their aim is just on the majority. It will bring way more diversity to GOG, and maybe.. the unknown games will be an succes.

Games aren't automatically added when they "win". Otherwise we'd have Grim Fandango twelve times already. Add all game wishes to the game wishlist, doesn't matter how "unknown" they are.
