So I guess the "we want to keep all Mac and Linux users on Steam" policy is indeed a general one for them. Wow...
Well at least it's a trend for them. Battle Chasers also never got the Linux version...now Desperados...
Maybe I'm getting soft with old age, but maybe the "worst offenders" should be determined in a slightly different way than the company with the most mentions on the list getting the top spot, since I feel that would punish companies that release a lot of stuff on gog.
Maybe divide the number of games Company X has on the list by the number of games Company X has released on gog, and the company with the highest average of inferior products gets the top spot.
On the other hand, this would create an absurd undue amount of work and who knows, maybe THQ would still nab the top spot all the same.
Hm...I am interested in creating some additional statistics at some point, that would certainly be an idea. However that would require some way to easily get these numbers (maybe pulled from the API, I have no idea how to do that right now). But still an interesting idea.
But for now the current setup works too, it shows which publisher is responsible for all the second class games on GOG and right now the top spots are populated by publishers supposedly "friendly" to GOG...
I think it would be a great opportunity to send THQ Nordic a mail (or include it in the post of some of their next releases) and congratulate them. I'd be very interested in seeing their reaction - if they even do react.
Hm it sure would but I doubt they'd react to it at all. Given their lack of response here in the forums most of the times.
As long as people keep buying their games here, they won't react.
