I still can't believe this crap that Beamdog pulled. I see people asking for the original versions both here and at the ID forum and some end up buying the crappy EE versions to play the originals at twice the price and supporting a company which should not be allowed to touch any more classics...
Makes it slightly harder to recommend the classic games, too: "Hey buddy, there's this totally awesome game you have to see! All you have to do is buy a sloppy modern *port* of that game *first*, and then use this redemption code you get with it..."
At the very least, GOG does tend to have *amazing* sales from time to time. If you can snap up the game(s) in question for $10 or less... well, it still sucks that such a dodgy company (Beamdog) gets the profits of it, but it's better than nothing.
I hope they *never* get around to Icewind Dale 2 or Planescape: Torment. They've done enough damage already.
