l0rdtr3k: ...And I demand an apology because you freaking offended me...
Please stop the drama. dedoporno didn't insult you, but only pointed out some facts about your habits. You yourself know best, don't make me search for your threads about wanting to change. The lack of a credit card and money is a problem, but there's still Paypal and to be honest, everybody can afford some games on GOG. Maybe not all you like, but still enough to be entertained. You're not the only one with little money and if I assume right, not even old enough to be responsible for other people, as that puts little money on a complete new level.

What about helping your father, so that he buys you one of your favorite games, instead of wasting your time begging for them. That would make everybody happy eventually, including you.

If I wanted money my dad would tell me to go wash his car/mow the lawn/get a job. Ah, the good old days.
Bash him how you will, but teshra does have a nose for these things:

Money? What's that?
Why, in the old days, I had to go out and make everything I needed! Bark shoes, and a coat made from scraps from curtains... XD

Or him bashing enough people, and you bound to get 1 or 2 right.
Some people are being very obvious, it's not magic.

Actually that's something that confuses me, this is the first time (as in the internet, not this case that you guys are talking about) that i see someone asking for a game and people actually giving them away, games that costs 5/10/20/40$, i mean, i can understand people actually making some kind of a giveaway to a game they've bought but to actually buy it just because some random people in the internet asked for it, it just blows my mind.

I'm not saying this in a bad way, it's just that i find it weird, maybe because fortunately i have some liberty to buy some of the games that i want (especially in bundles or in promotions) but i simply don't have the nerve to actually ask for something from friends (and trust me that i feel bad when they spend some money in gifts) let alone from strangers.

That's all.

Exactly! That's why I prefer to trade if I can. GA competitions don't count though [:P], although if I get something, I will pass it forward by dropping what I can as well.

But in a way it's the same for those people that gift something with their own choosing. Only here it's something the taker really asked for. Both ways usually the gifter does it because it makes the taker feels better in getting a game (usually because they can't afford it) and with that makes the gifter also feel better.
Some even set some karma in motion and makes the taker gift something else in return at a later point.
And usually people atleast have the decency to only ask for something small like something on promo or a spare key from a bundle in case someone already bought it. Some people dare to ask something big, some even take the piss and abuse but in the end noone is forcing the gifter to anything.

GA's do count exactly the same, there is no difference, both rely on the generosity of a gifter, wether a gift is choosen by himself or someone else.

The initial idea, I guess, was for people to post their most highly desired games, for reference mostly. And then someone, who felt like being kind or wanted to reward them, would consult it. Now, people mostly just dump whatever they fancy out of the current sale or bundle for the non-gog thread, and conversely some people will just dump leftovers. All good things pass :(

I would have to disagree as I don't feel it's the same as actually requesting someone to get them a specific game. If someone stated that they had a copy of X to give away, that would be at the gifter's discretion to choose a game they want to give away. The gifter has more choice, I suppose.
It's not the same as if I went to you and asked you to buy me game Y, pretty please. In that case, it would be me choosing the game etc. The only choice a gifter would have then is whether to buy the game for me.
Although I do see your point - in either case, it's still a game being given away...

Uhm, i kind of understand it but it's like i said, i find it weird that people actually ask for stuff kind of expensive and people actually trusting them, i mean, no disrespect to anyone but people will actually fake a good personality and try to scam a freeby, don't misunderstand me, i'm not condemning the person that made the good act of giving, i simply find it weird that he/she is willing to buy a game to a random guy.

Lol, even if it isn't i kind of see that as a jab to me. Maybe it's because i'm "defending myself" but i don't see the problem, sometimes there are really good stuff on those leftovers and sometimes what you see as garbage could be a treasure to someone else.

Sometimes there is only one game in a bundle that someone wants but doesn't justify (or can't) giving away 1$ (or whatever the lowest tier is) for it, even if it's a little different, that happened to me today for the humble weekly bundle, i only wanted the Freaking Meatbags (well, and i kind of wanted Kill bad guy) so it was kind of hard for me to give 6$ for one game (yeah, i know, the bundles/sales made me a cheap person) so i see why people wouldn't want to buy it and wait for a giveaway. (btw, random thing for me to say but the Finding Teddy on the lowest tier is really worth the 1$ price, really awesome game). In the end i bought the bundle and gave the rest here.

Anyway, i understand what you meant and perhaps gog should upgrade their system where people could check others wishlists and games (if it was public) and randomly give away a game, maybe that will be on that galaxy software.

Offtopic, quick question, is there an advance writting system in these forums? It would be nice to preview the message before i post it or using the [s][/s], and other stuff that now i don't remember.

If you install Barefoot Essentials and write a quick reply you can see the text as it is typed out across the bottom of the forums. That's all I know of, unfortunately.

The only thing I can think of is Barefoot Essentials, it's an awesome program to utilize in these forums.
