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.
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.
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 :(
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.
