The game is top selling right now, and i saw some defending it on reddit. I doubt it will hurt them much.
and this say a lot when you look at the review from just "Verified owners".
First they are just 19 (for a top selling game so popular that's a really low number), 11 of them are 1 star review (probably refund).
I think this time they will actually feel it.
Even if they don't I don't care anymore, I will not buy a single game from gog again.
Some will continue to buy but I think that's not enogh to mantain the big store they want to mantain, they are already losing money, this will get worst.
There is a reason why the were able to grow, most people liked them a lot, they will not if they continue to lie like this.
And if someone really make a class action I think gog will lose even more (right now the news is not on videogames website).
Still even if they became steam and successful I will not buy anything here anyway, even if some games are drm-free. I'll just keep my account for games that I already own.
PS. Read this post. https://www.gog.com/forum/general/class_action_lawsuit_for_selling_game_with_drm_after_years_of_promising_to_always_be_drmfree/post44
this is the same point I make, they will lose a lot. Number one sale means nothing if you sell 10 copies of a game.
Unlike others I will say thanks for making this comment and acknowledging the problem. No site is perfect but you're the best warrior we have for DRM free so taking feedback and fighting hard is a good thing.
I truly think you guys didn't know how much of this is always online. "The story is offline? Okay" you probably said, thinking of all the singleplayer games out there with story and multiplayer. Hitman just isn't that, as I hope you can now see. The gameplay is SO rooted in completing challenges to unlock weapons and such, and that's all always online (for no apparent reason really other than piracy concerns). It truly is a much different situation from something like Borderlands where the only difference is whether other people play with you or not.
if that's was really the case they would apologies and remove the game from sale.
the game is still sold on gog and they even said they will not tolerate review bombing...
I don't really know how can you say they are doing their best.
