I am also wondering if the GOG versions aren't the trainwrecks that are the Steam Versions. On Steam, Bioshock 1 Remastered didn't crash on me but I got a lot of glitches (Mainly physics glitches and weird red and purple bits in the water in an area of the Fontain's Fishery level).
Bioshock 2 Remastered is a far worse story! Crash after crash after crash. It could crash in a battle, opening a door, picking up an item, searching something or someone and in some cases taking a step forward! In short, an unplayable Crash Simulator! According to Windows Event Viewer, all the crashes were "Memory Access Violation (0xc00000005)" crashes.
One issue that both remasters have is the sound completely craps itself if Windows has the audio set higher than 24bit 48,000hz (and I prefer to have my audio set to 24bit 96,000Hz 5.1) so I have to change my windows sound settings every time I play them. (The exact same issue as Doom 2016).
NONE of the updates released on Steam fixed ANY of these issues and the last update (Which was a year after the previous update) was mainly implemented to add Chinese language support so they could sell the games to China to make more cash.
I suspect the "remasters" were just a cash grab so they could resell Bioshock 1 & 2 to the PS4/XBONE owners and the PC port was a lazy, cobbled together afterthought most likely outsourced to a cheap developer that couldn't code for PC to save their lives (Like the Ys VIII PC Port, but without any attempt to fix the problems), in an attempt to grab more cash from PC users unlucky enough to not already have the classic versions in their Steam library!
Although I got the remasters for free for already owning the classic versions (Which are stable af, in comparison) if I get proof that GOG fixed this cluster**** I would gladly pony up the cash to get the remasters on GOG.
