JudasPhysicist: Is there a chance of getting Turkish currency support for the Gog store?
I have been meaning to buy games here, but even if they go down to 2 dollars
they are usually more expensive than the Turkish regional prices on Steam.

I'm talking about 2 or 3 times more expensive prices on Gog.
even if GOG offers local currency, it doesn't necessarily mean you'll get more favorable regional pricing. Case in point - my country is charged in Russian Rubles but prices are on average about 200% of what GOG charges in Russia proper, and it's the same currency. It was a little better a year or 2 ago, maybe 120% difference but then GOG decided to change regional pricing for my country and double the prices without even changing the currency.

EDIT: just reviewed a couple of pages of this thread, looks like GOG has been doing this sort of thing for a while for many small countries. I guess they don't care much about buyers there so they raise prices nilly-willy.

Hmmmmmm
Ok so... haven't used GOG.COM for months might even be a year or more.
Came here to look for a specific old game. (The Dig)
Then saw some other interesting titles.
I know GOG.com was pretty cheap back when I actively used it.
But then I saw the prices of other games.
What the hell happened?
Are they going nuts?
71,40 Euros for some games while they are around 50 at sites.
Are they trying to lose customers? Or is this some sort of reverse psychology?
I stopped buying from GOG as they came out among the dearest. There are loads of game sites that are much cheaper.

Same. They just love overcharging smaller countries, doesn't hurt them much if they lose some potential buyers there compared to US or China or Russia.
