I also feel dumb for becoming attached to the GOG brand and thinking that they were different from other companies. In the end, they are still a business, so money is top priority. I'm disheartened that I thought they were pro consumer and they really carried that image (ex. The Witcher 3 Nintendo Switch physical version). GOG was my favourite digital storefront and was the only true alternative to Steam in my experience. I left Steam a while ago and stopped purchasing from there because I hated DRM in PC games. GOG brought me back to the good days of the 90s where I'd buy a game and install it on my computer and access it without internet activation. Fast forward and now GOG seems to be increasingly becoming anti-consumer. I'm not a shill. I'm not gonna blindly defend GOG for their deceptions. I hate communism, censorship, political correctness, etc. I hate all that and want none of that being integrated into games. I paid my final price with Cyberpunk 2077. That is going to be the final game that I have purchased. Going forward, I'm no longer gonna support GOG. If this is the end for me PC gaming, then so be it.
