I really don't like derailing these kinds of news threads with posts like the one I'm about to make... However, I wanted to say something publicly rather than PM, because it's part of my point:
So what if there are naysayers and complainers? People have always tried to get stuff they don't like buried, and it's only through people on the other side not giving up that we get to enjoy them today. Everything has had that fight - games, movies, music, it's endless!
Even DRM-free and GOG itself are things pro-DRM types try to silence.
If you want to stop spreading the word because that's what you
really want to do, then okay. Makes me sad to hear, but it's valid.
However... If you're giving up because you believe they've won, so you feel your fight is pointless? You're giving them what they want. While it doesn't mean they've won the war, they've effectively won the fight with you. They can even get a bonus win if you're normally the type to advocate (like asking devs for GOG releases)... if they take you down, their reach is far further than just affecting your purchasing habits.
Plus, I'm happy to offer myself as a testament to not giving up: I used to be one of *those* types, long ago, demanding content be banned because of stupid reasons. I only saw the other side thanks to people discussing it online publicly where I could read it. I don't just mean arguments - using DRM-free as an example, even people mentioning GOG's existence made me discover it and then start questioning Steam's entrenchment.
So... you never know who else is reading and getting their gears turning. :)
Also, more sales on GOG for any kind of game = GOG and devs/pubs will see there's an audience here, so the more releases we'll get. Money talks and people vote with their wallets, even if the release threads seem otherwise.
Anyway, if you want to reply or carry on this topic with me, please PM me or respond in a new thread (and PM me so I know to reply there). I won't talk on this topic any more in this thread though. Sorry for the offtopic >.<
