Bright for their finances and the business mindset, dark for those who were here for values and the promise (or at least the hope) of changing the industry (and possibly off (legal) purchases for good (again), since the other notable options remain worse of course). Or more exactly for the few who hadn't been chased away already by now, as for most the last straw came well before.
But which would you rather, no Gog at all or a Gog that is a little further from the ideal than you would want?
The figures quoted by The_Business above are pretty grim for Gog, $0.07 profit on a $9.99 game is appalling. If Gwent's microtransactions can keep Gog afloat to provide other games DRM free is it really all that bad?
I wonder how many of the games currently being released here would ever have come at all if not for developers having the option of Galaxy. We're apparently not getting many Linux versions of games because of the lack of a Linux client, if there was no client at all it follows those games may never have come to Gog.
This sure is a reply to an old message...
No GOG at all. Always said it. My approach to them was that of an activist to an organization, not of a customer to a business. The gaming (and digital content creation in general) business is dreadful and I have no desire to have something to do with it as it stands, or as it stood when GOG was created (which was less bad than now anyway). They came with the message that they were in it to change it, in a manner that went some way towards making it at least tolerable under the current circumstances, so I got off the "high seas" because there was something that gave some hope finally. Then that went away, and I see no use in a GOG that was either defeated and changed by the market it (claimed to) want to change or which was never on that "crusade" to begin with and just fooled the gullible for a while until they let their true colors shine.
As for games that appeared lately, don't care for them. (Even more so now, with my region also getting the higher Eurozone price as of some time ago, though we don't even use the Euro, and let's not even get to "market realities". But I won't be buying anything that has a higher-than-base price anywhere anyway, and there are pretty few recent releases that don't, basically just the non-big-name classics.)
(Yeah, for me the hill to die on remains regional pricing, that was one of their two clear, specific principles, the only thing worse would be any sort of DRM for single player. The rest are just added on top, making things even worse. "Benefits" in terms of titles added don't count. Or, more exactly, if regionally priced they count, but negatively
