I don't like this at all and many people don't like this at all. Please gog.com do not ever allow microtransactions to be sold on gog.com.

I made this wishlist because the other one says until you have a proper way to manage them.

Microtransactions should never be sold on gog.com.

No Free to Play (F2P) video games either.

Pay for the video games and have them with all of the full content is what gog.com should be about.

I think drawing a hard line on this (Or most things really) isn't super beneficial. I believe microtransactions are fine and a good way for developers to continue to earn money in order to support the game. But ONLY if said microtransations are purely cosmetic and don't change the actual gameplay or pacing in any way. This way a system can be developed where you have the base game that is complete and fully featured but have options to say, purchase a skin for a character or buy something that makes the sky a different colour. This way of doing microtransactions also acts as a motivator for developers to make their content high quality, so people will actually want to buy something that is purely cosmetic and has no actual effect on the game whatsoever. <br /> <br /> That said, I also understand many microtransaction systems are not like this and have burned a lot of people and it would also be a tough task to sort through games and make sure their microtransaction system is balanced. <br /> <br /> In the end, I believe GOG should have good games. And I don't think games should be defined by their microtransaction systems unless they are very detrimental to the game, in which case the game wouldn't be considered good and in turn, wouldn't end up on GOG. &lt;3

@addictedtosleep - just because we have opinion that is different to yours doesn't mean we're trolls. There's always a positive side to things, even to microtransactions and F2P stuff. Microtransactions are a great alternative to retail price, because they allow the player invest amount of money they thought was right in this or that game in particular. They don't necessarily break the game.

I tend to agree with a ban on µTrans-games, but I'l propose a compromise: <br /> <br /> Any such game should be <br /> <br /> 1) clearly labelled as such. Screamingly clearly labelled. <br /> <br /> 2) thoroughly vetted by GOG staff and contributors, with testimonials from other game review sources, that the microtransaction are not required to get the near-fulles out of the game, before being allowed on GOG. <br /> <br /> I'm fairly sure GOG would not do this anyway, but just in case.

Microtransaction/pay-to-win is the bilge of gaming. By GoG not supporting this sort of money grabbing technique we could hopefully eradicate it for good. <br /> <br /> Some say that it's all down to the gamers choice, but it's just a way for publishers to make money, and I believe that it stifles creativity. Buy the game and that's it. <br /> <br /> I have dabbled in this hypocrisy, though. Marvel Puzzle Quest on my phone. It's free, but I've supported the developer by buying gold packs for £7. The game is worth the money, and I wonder if I would have paid for the game upfront? I don't need that Gold, but the Devs need a payday.

I sort of agree with this. I despise microtransactions in any pay-to-own game. But at the same time there are some games that are 100% free to play with cosmetic microtransactions (see League of Legends). So I think as a rule of thumb, no microtransations is a good call, but there are some cases where they aren't bad. But yes usually they're terrible.

Crazdaisy's son speaking. As long as GOG clarifies THOROUGHLY that this stuff is in the games that have them, I see no reason that they shouldn't add them. <br /> <br /> This should be user choice, and while I hate such games I also value freedom. If you've got the money and want to play such games that is up to the individual. <br /> <br /> P.S. Would GOG even add F2P? Would that make any sense?

The big problem with pay as you you play micro transactions is that an average game that is slightly addictive could cost you thousands, just to speed up a build or get a certain armour etc, it leads to average game development as in story, thought process, longevity, playablility, enjoyment, especially if you refuse to pay in game and just grind, which takes days/weeks out of your life. And for what? These games are designed to dangle a carrot infront of you and take your cash, great idea to make money but not great for good games. Imagine 15/20 years ago with Age of Empires and you had to pay £1.99 to hurry up your castle build or another £4.99 to get the Teutonic Knight unit. No, we paid £30 quid and that was that, and if the game had promise, we paid another £10 for the expansion which added alot more to the game, these games are still playable today and people still talk about them. Micro transaction cash cow money making games (candy crush anyone?) Pre order bonuses and DLCs are only becoming the norm because people havent got the patience to wait anymore. Take a step back, if you dont pay, they wont charge and maybe certain developers will invest in releasing something quality to begin with instead of a shoddy unpatched waste of space that gives to just enough to keep you interested but not enough for you to still be talking about it in 20 years time!

I get where you're coming from but I don't agree. There are some amazing games that have microtransactions as business models (I'm thinking Planetside 2, you owe it to yourself to be part of a foot zerg at least once in your life, it's one of the most epic things you will ever experience). <br /> I think that GOG should publish quality, DRM-free titles; for everything else, you vote with your wallet. Don't blame GOG for bringing people good games.

But... what about Gwent, a game developed by CD Projekt Red, who owns GOG, that has microtransactions in the form of buyable card kegs filled with semi-random cards? (granted, it's pretty damn easy to justplay the game and get more kegs as you level up)

My issue is that early access -or "in development"- games can change whatever they want. Remember how Killing Floor 2 added in their loot crate bs after a good bit of time had already passed. <br /> <br /> What steps can GOG take if any to ensure that early access titles don't decide to gouge their customers for content half way through development?

I agree... cant ban microtransactions forever but you can severly limit it, this is GoG not some steam shovelware site. <br /> Good thing would also be to avoid as much as shovelware games cause it tends to get here if it gets thousands of positive votes on steam. <br /> The one good thing of Steam is the fact games only need a Greenlight, they dont seem to care if a game doesnt sell 100000 copies like others do, this enables games to be bought despite the fact they dont sell by the thousands. Usually it seems Steam lowers the price for games that dont sell to well.

Coming from a platform like Steam I would totally agree. I would not give much reasoons or explain about. <br /> GoG should not ever try to implement stuff like this. And I am saying that for the many reasons that still make GoG as unique and as good as it is

In my wish, I would have asked to reject microtransactions forever, but then I knew the trolls would come. I don't think it's realistic for GOG, as a business, to reject microtransactions forever. However, this is what the "wishlist" is about. Letting GOG know what you want, even if its a little crazy. So, this has my upvote, because ideally, microtransactions and ingame stores rarely ever contribute in meaningful ways to the gameplay experience of players (except when its negative experiences).

F2P games can't work without the most broken kind of DRM ever: the kind where they don't even let you have a whole working copy of the game engine. If you want to "crack" them, you have to re-implement the part they don't give you and get the part you have to accept it.

Depends on how its done, lets say for Gwent, if the single player experience is still DRM free, but the MP portion needs you to sign in to CPRs servers or something, I dont really see an issue. IF on the other hand you need to sign in to play at all, well. That is another can of worms.

This is nonsense. If you don't like that kind of games, just don't play them. The important thing here it's DRM-free in my opinion. If the game it's DRM-free it's ok if it has microtransactions. I don't like them myself, but I don't mind if the game have them. If it benefits GOG and don't conflict with GOG's DRM-free policy, I'm totally ok with it.

gogs market in general is just not the type to fall into the whole microtransactions thing anyway, most of those microtransaction games, e.g maple story, or whatever, are mmos that are mainly marketed to teens and others who are looking for a social circle revolving around 'quests' and 'stats' and have their own communities anyway. I like to think of micro-transaction based mmos as the successor to the old hack and slash games like Diablo. I don't think they would benefit from being sold here on gog - they'd get trashed for not having a story, for cheaters, for grinding, etc...

nevremind... reading these again I misread the comments below. And I can't edit or erase my comments so they're stuck there. How embarrassing.

To clarify, I am aware that the wish doesn't mention DLC at all. I am referring to the people below who lumped it in their arguments.

Let me clarify, <br /> <br /> -Pay-to-win (horrible): the game purposely makes it impossible so you'll shell out money, before you realize you're not even playing a game just spending money) <br /> <br /> -DLC : Awesome:" it's basically "We want to make the game bigger after release add new features based on player opinion" it's improving upon boring vanilla stuff that is too expensive to patch-in for free. If I want an expansion where I explore an entire new storyline/land in an RPG, I'll go for it." DLC isn't evil.

Funny how everybody's like 'no microtransactions please!' and then CDProject drops Gwent :)

I'm an entrepreneur, and I fully understand why some developers and publishers feel the need to monetize their property by means of microtransactions. I don't think there's anything inherently unethical about going down that route, and if I were in the business of, say, developing mobile games, I'd certainly consider doing it myself. <br /> <br /> That said? I don't particularly like microtransactions on a personal level, and I'm glad that <a href="http://gog.com" class="light_un" target="_blank">gog.com</a> is offering me the privilege of browsing a store where I can be confident that I won't come across a thing like that. gog.com's market niche of "games with no strings attached" is precisely why I'd pick gog over other distribution platforms any time I'm looking to buy a game featured in its store. Please keep it that way. Thanks.

I dislike microtransactions just as much as the next guy but I think GOG would be isolating themselves more than necesary if they don't allow this. <br /> <br /> It's simple, have the "microtransaction" work just like the DLC, once you buy it it's saved on the offline installer and it's always unlocked, simple as that. <br /> <br /> If it's consumable items I would assume they will never be required in the game at any point.

Much ado about nothing. Games with microtransactions are often free-to-play or are also locked down tight with DRM (for obvious reasons). You're stirring up controversy where there is none. <br /> <br /> Not going to vote for this populist nonsense.

Just to clarify: In game stores where you buy stuff EXCLUSIVELY with in-game money are okay. Every other game has it and they just use whatever your character collect in the game. <br /> The problem lies with those that offer stuff for your real-world money after you ALREADY paid for the game.

I agree to this wish. In theory there could be microtransactions done in a way that is not useless or abusive to the customers... It just never happened. This system is particularly good at providing a way to nickel-and-diming and delivering very little for your customers's money, so that's how developers use it. <br /> And then there's the technical matter of the server going offline and you being locked out of that content forever. There's also a concern about security, but I assume that if Gog were to adopt these games hey would also provide the payment infrastructure, so not worried there. <br /> <br /> In a comment below some other user stated they could want to buy in-game stuff to help the devs of a game they enjoyed. My recommendation to you is: email that company and ask them for a paypal account where you can show your gratitude. It'd be far more effective and wouldn't risk polluting Gog's catalogue with so many crappy games that rely on microtransactions. Which we all know are aplenty.

Copying this from other wish: <br /> <br /> The only way to manage microtransactions is to avoid them. <br /> <br /> By allowing microtransactions, developers show that they do not care for your gaming experience at all. So why should you care for them? Don't buy, don't play and don't talk about those games - let them die in oblivion, where they deserve to be.

A good game is a good game and often, microtransactions are, just like dlc, demanded by the publisher... like EA. <br /> <br /> honestly, there's nothing wrong with them if they are ENTIRELY OPTIONAL and NEITHER PLAYER NOR THE GAME RELY ON IT. <br /> <br /> Heck, I even completed Final Fantasy All the bravest without spending a dime. <br /> <br /> it took a while and patience, mind you... but it was fun playing it for a bit each day and putting it back down again. <br /> <br /> it's just like playing Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call, Dissidia Final Fantasy or Final Fantasy Explorers... <br /> <br /> or any Rythm, fighting or monster hunter game for that matter.

The thing with GOG is that you can download the game and have it on your drive even if the original servers go down. <br /> If a game has microtransactions, how are they going to work with the service down. On mobile and Steam is ok i guess since you aren't going there with the idea of downloading a DRM free game.

Maybe we should define microtransaction... Is it small transactions, or just things you can buy in-game? Some games on steam offer "micro"-transaction for up to $100. <br /> And if $100 can be qualified as a microtransaction, then I don't see why DLC shouldn't go under microtransaction. <br /> And what is wrong with in-game stores? I mean, if it's singleplayer games: No. No stores. (Just my opinion). In multiplayer, I pretty much don't care.

I think the fundamental issue people are not seeing is that microtransactions are inherently harmful to the GOG formula. Buying a game on GOG means you have a guaranteed archive/installer of your purchase for your records - save it on a flash drive and you will be able to install it anywhere at any time under any circumstance (to be hyperbolic, let's say stranded on Mars after civilisation as we know it has been wiped out). This *includes* all DLC and addons you may have purchased for the game (even Horse Armour). Yes, you might not be able to play online if the game has multiplayer, but you still own all the content as it was. Microtransactions and ingame stores tie these purchases to an account/store service (otherwise there is no point of not offering them through the platform as DLC in the first place). Ergo: Your GOG installer will no longer be the full archival copy of the game you paid for. You might argue that it's fine for inconsequential content, but once that line is crossed it's only going to get blurrier... and just like that, GOG has rendered itself irrelevant when functionally compared to other platforms. Personally I *could* see an exception being made should GOG at some point choose to incorporate select explicitly online only or f2p style games on Galaxy for convenience (e.g. CCGs), but it would still be a tough call.
