For me personally, the expression fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me comes to mind. CDPR and GOG have really put me off from buying here in the future.
I pre-ordered Cyberpunk 2077 after E3 from GOG wanting to support CDPR and I really trusted them as a customer first company. Then when the game is released look at all the decietful actions that CDPR pulled
I have bought a lot of games at full price to support GOG in the hope it encouraged other AAA releases. As an example, I bought Horizon Zero Dawn from Steam and then again from from GOG at full price. I didn't think this kind of game would end up on GOG so wanted to again show my support by buying it again. Now GOG are deceiving customers falsely claiming that Hitman was DRM free and then implying the customers are at fault.
This is obviously a trend that CDPR and GOG are starting to follow and I would rather just buy from Steam as the only benefit of buying from GOG in the first place was the DRM free element.
It was good while it lasted but I am not going to be taken advantage of again as a customer of GOG.
Always buy games low & buy later.
That even includes re-release to new stores - as we don't know entirely what problems can come from bringing old game to new store b/c of old platform requirements and new platform requirements; especially as more games lean into proprietary stuff like Steamworks, Origin, Uplay, Galaxy, etc etc...and build those into the game from the ground-up.
We've seen the previous problems already w/ GOG version's of No Man's Sky, Dungeon Siege 3 w/ DLC issues, newer Deus Ex titles, and now Hitman 1: GOTY - where those issues needed to be fixed, even after those hit GOG initially.
With so many bad business practices in general in gaming these days - release games now & patch later; de-value base-games by putting them in Bundles; releasing DLC's/Season Passes and/or expansions to devalue games or previous packages; re-releasing games as Remasters; Remakes done later; DRM put on games to make them more or a rental and players have less ownership; client-app's forced into games to also kill the 2nd-hand market; etc etc - it's often just best just to buy cheap & wait it out.
By waiting - you can get better editions or versions; more patching behind a game so it's more stable & less buggy; not got milked on DLC's/expansion pricing schemes & shenanigans; better hardware's out so a game can run better by sheer brute force of newer hardware; maybe grab an edition with less DRM (if it exists) somewhere; more mods are available; etc etc.
I ain't dropped $45 on a game since Witcher 2 pre-order on GOG - and for many reasons I already mentioned.
