How could anyone have thought of such a thing? It would only be worse if you offered to install Steam and a game with Denuvo in it as a condition of participation.
Making it all wrong.

You'd better work closer with the publishers and developers with whom you ALREADY cooperate and ask them to add links to the game pages not only to Steam, but also to GOG (and add in the future, in new releases and press-releases).
This would increase both search engine coverage (Google, DuckDuckGo and so on) and automatic coverage in online gaming publications. On the contrary, you hide information about upcoming releases in every possible way.

Thanks, I will pass.
I also prefer offline installers over client any day.
And have no social accounts, I have no use for them.

I don't share at the best of times.

Social Media, nah, don't don't do that either

Nice try, but I'd like to offer you a much more interesting competition: you (GOG) finally break the radio silence and start communicating with users who have suffered from the forced Galaxy 2.0 update.

You have hundreds of reports on Mantis, but only 17 of them have been resolved, and the Galaxy team members, just like any other GOG staff, haven't appeared on the GOG Galaxy 2.0 thread for months. For example, one of my GOG games is missing from my Galaxy library for almost three months. I've reported this issue several times but still haven't got my game back.

The way you treat your users is really disappointing.

Guess who doesn't have access to Galaxy 2.0, even though a Linux build would be trivial?

Oh, right. I suppose I should make an addendum here; the last social media website I used was Google+ because I know how to pick a real winner.

Edit: Nice 404. Gotta say it's a great look when even GOG's own staff can't wrangle this crypt of a forum.

A very nice competition. I'll participate if something funny comes to my mind. I'm using both GOG Galaxy and Twitter, so there will be no problems entering the competition. Too bad that it's impossible to apply through the forums, because I generally prefer longer content that Twitter allows, but I'll treat this as an additional challenge. :)

WoW I won already !
How about you guys ?

I've always had difficulties trying to explain why, in spite of having played all kinds of videogames for over 3 decades, I do not feel a "gamer". I think this one tweet doesn't quite say it right, but it's close.

Also I've never felt the need to show off to complete strangers on the internets.*shrugs*

Maybe use your official forums for communication and not crappy social media like any other publisher or dev, you have a place here but favor social media and i say screw that.

I have never used social media like Facebook, Twitter etc and never will nor am i interested in showing off. I'm really tired of this social media obsession for all communication or social media push for anything really so that is one thing i want you to consider long and hard because i'm not the only one here who think the same.

I love you GoG but not enough to sign up for social media. :)

Sachys: I don't even know why you bothered to post this on the forum, GOG.
Indeed. Would have been more suited posting that on social media, and since Galaxy is supposed to be 'optional', then how about a push on that as well then those using it log on. Oh wait, but perhaps they don't really want for Galaxy to remain that much optional anymore.

Hard pass as well.
Well, Gog. What you have here is a failure to communicate,now I can be a good guy or a bad guy.It's up too you.(Cool Hand Luke).

If you just added, say a million bucks then maybe,maybe more people would use Twitter and Galaxy and whatnot but that's them and not me, thankyou:)

This is attempt by GOG to increase the amount of their customers. They understand their current users just fine, they just want more, and current group that is here strictly for DRM free is probably already maxed. They have to expand to other segments, and whether we like it or not that means social media in this age. As long as they don't compromise on the DRM free while doing that, I'm fine with it. They don't give out free games out of the kindness of their hearts, they ARE business, they want something in return. And that something is free advertising from people who already don't mind sharing everything with the whole world. People who don't spread their message add no value, so why include them?

I certainly wouldn't dream of coming here and complaining about being excluded from this GA. I consider it to be mostly self-exclusion, for the sake of my sanity. If they can get 100k new customers this way - good for them, there is zero effect on me. Except maybe some publisher may decide that GOG is finally big enough to sell their stuff here.

PS: galaxy 2.0 is good enough so that I use it regularly since closed beta, without being forced by anyone. YMMV, of course. Retagging my library was the only bigger annoyance, but even with 800+ library it doesn't take that long. And gave me good reason to reconsider usefulness of some of those tags.

I'm starting to think there's a new bigwig of marketing at GOG that doesn't really understand its user base. These last two weeks or so have been really strange on this regard.

Galaxy only giveaway?! If the offline installers are removed i will remove myself from the gog's customer base too. Just sain.

Dont get me wrong. I like having options and i am not strictly against clients. But lately gog is sending too many worring signals.
