Now that Bethesda is on GOG will we get the Terminator games eventually.....Future Shock (the most atmospheric 1st person shooter game in my opinion....made me a bit scared in fact...hehe), Skynet and Rampage as that would be awesome!!

It won't be so easy. In fact, I think it's harder than bringing New Vegas and Skyrim here. "Insert something license here".

I'm reminded of watching this video on Mario Brothers 2, which originally came out as Doki Doki Panic... Nintendo was asked to make a game using a franchise, and they did, Nintendo made everything and owned everything except for the characters for Doki Doki Panic... Then when they thought Mario Brothers (Lost Levels) was too hard for Western release, they redid the characters and called it a mario brothers game. Nintendo can re-release Mario brothers 2, but not Doki Doki Panic without permission.

If copyright is anything in the US like Japan, whoever owns the Terminator license will inevitably decide if Bethesda can resell the Terminator games...

GOG has proven adept at sorting out licensing issues in the past (see the recent release of the D&D gold box games as a prime example), so I would not give up hope just yet

Renewing a license costs extra money. Does Bethesda want to spend extra money? Will it be profitable for them? That's why I say it's more likely that they bring Skyrim and Fallout: New Vegas here, than bringing the Terminators back; less costly and more profitable.
For a second, I thought the title was referring to this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZPhlHV7vfSw

If GOG can bring Star Trek here, I think they could manage Terminator.
Besides the game rights for Terminator games might be currently with some other company. That might have an effect on the possible relese as well. I've understood that the rights for that series have been handed from company to company for ages now, unlike something like Star Trek.
It would be nice to try these again, but from what I remember they were extremely buggy.
What about Skynet?same thing?

Skynet was the sequel to Future Shock.
I thought this series of games were fairly panned.

Oh,missed it in first post,thanks
It would be nice, next to Wayne Gretzky Hockey 2, SkyNet and Future Shock are the only good games Bethesda ever developed. Not saying they're great though, level design was a bit meh but the games were quite revolutionary, the first PC FPS with WASD+Mouse controls.
