Interesting data, so gog is kind of plateauing.
Willn't be interesting to add the DLCs to this data ? I guess the number of DLC has hugely increased in recent years, wich in my opinion count.

the number of new good old games releases seems to be lowering fast.....
and DLC is increasing rapidly , also the number of new ( expensive) games is increasing rapidly aswell.

Personally i am not a DLC man, maybe its because DLC were not that common back in the old gaming days, and maybe its because it was called "Expansion packs" ...
Anyway, 90% of all that 'stuff' did not add much to the game itself, only added up to the amount of diskspace being taken on the harddrives....

The thing is: new games can be aquired anywhere, old good decent games (and drm free) are pretty hard to get, and i am referring to non fpp/3d games and tons of driving/ racing/flightsim games.... these are still released by tens of dozens... its the good old normal games ( jagged alliance, age of empires, red alert, c&C, baldurs, fallout( all the classic games NO remakes) that i loved playing on PC.

Lets hope the tide will turn and many old good games or good old , whatever will return again by the dozens, for now there are very few released and many have to little colors ( colonels bequest), i am old, but not ancient, my first pc games had a decent pallette not the yellow green purple and orange colors thatw ere used so much in the first pc games.

Dreadnot: Any chances of geting DUNE into GoG ? Damn i loved that game and miss playing it.
Thats owned by EA now ?
little chance it will get here i guess....

Its weird that EA refuses to launch the old redalert 1+2 and expansions and here at GOG drm free, i dont care for the 3d engine redalerts, or any 3d engine game remake....

Age of empires classic 1+2 (NO HD remake like steam has with intergrated steam and dumb achievements)
would be welcome aswell here DRM free... but this will never happen

EA is to tied to its DRM and own drm loaded games that need origin accounts.... i just want their old games no new stuff :D

Btw i dont see an old new thursdays new game? it is thursday isnt it ?

(checking calendar ....)

yup it is thursday ...


last game bought was at: May 4, 2017

Conquests of the Longbow: The Legend of Robin Hood


thats 2 months.... usually i had 10 or 12 new games by then
