How many of us have watched things get worse and worse and just continued buying regardless over the last few years? If people want change around here they have to act. Letting shit slide and looking the other way accomplishes nothing. It says to GOG that it is okay to ignore it’s customers, it is okay to not care about the quality of the services provided, it is okay to just keep up their bad behavior in general.
DRM contained within supposed DRM-free games
Parity between Galaxy and the offline installers
The offline installers
Highly questionable curation
GOG’s communication with the community
Lying to customers
I will say that GOG doesn’t have to do anything to rectify these issues if they do not wish to. However, they started with a standard of quality that the older users have come to expect and are squandering and abusing.
So do you mean to say you refuse to buy anything from GOG, until all you demands (above) are met?
I am not buying from GOG in order to make some kind of political statement. I am buying games from GOG whenever they offer games I want to buy, in a (DRM-free) format that I want to buy. If it becomes too hard or painful for me to buy such games from GOG in general, then I would start "boycotting", ie. not buying games, GOG.
Is it enough action from me that for now I will not be buying Hitman, as it apparently can't be played fully offline? Or are you demanding more action from me?
Are you really suggesting I should stop buying any games from GOG e.g. because there are bugs in the forum software, or because you feel GOG is not communicating well enough with the user community? Many other stores don't even have a forum, and I would keep buying from GOG even if they removed the whole forum. I consider it as an extra service, not the reason to buy (or not to buy) games from GOG.
And no, GOG rejecting Devotion is not a reason for me to stop buying games from GOG either. Why should it be? I bought Devotion from the publisher's own store instead.
