The GOG downloader apparently talks to the website via a standards based API. Please document this when it's finalised to allow people to create their own tools to access the site and so increase GOGs reach. (Requiring a login or an api key a la EVE Online account access would be fine)

I run <a href="http://vglist.co" class="light_un" target="_blank">vglist.co</a> and have a Steam importer via their API, would really like to be able to do the same for GOG :)

Yes please! I want to retrieve my gameplay statistics through the API so I can compile it into my static website!

I was thinking of doing a similar project to DavidBrightEyes, along with other queries such as which games (I own) support multiple platforms on which stores. If there were a documented API (OAuth, JSON, etc) I'd be happy to open source a client library in Go for other gophers to use.

I'm thinking about building a little web app to help keep track of which games are owned where. An API for external use would obviously help with that. :) We can get games owned from Steam.

I, too, have longed for an API feature for GOG. I just spent a couple hours putting together a GreaseMonkey script to get data out of the gogData object contained on the account page only to discover that it only contains the first page of my owned games. Other than scraping the webpage itself (which will break everytime there's a layout change) there's not really an effective alternative to getting a list of my owned games out of Gog and keeping it updated.

I'm building an application for personal use to run and track playtime of my games, and mark them when they are completed. I can import my steam games easily, but for GoG I have to add all of my 400 games manually. It would be neat to just access my shelf through some kind of api, even something simple like <a href="http://gog.com/account/shelf?format=json" class="light_un" target="_blank">gog.com/account/shelf?format=json</a> which uses my normal login cookie for auth. A fuller api would be nice, but this would be the biggest win.

I would like to also have a API like Steam has.

I'm busy building a website to catalogue games owned. One of the features is the ability to sync games with various stores and platforms. Currently supported are: Steam & XBox Live, but I'd love to be able to have an API for GOG so you can request a list of games you own. Cherry on top would be if we can search through all games publicly through the API.

If <a href="http://GOG.com" class="light_un" target="_blank">GOG.com</a> had a public API, I'd use it.

I too would like an easier way to get a listing of my games via API. I know that "every website is an API", but there are too many hoops to jump through for yours.

I too was looking for an easy way to export a list of the games I own via API to hook into a personal games list DB. This would be pretty cool to be able to do :)

Also would be nice to have a basic profile keyed api (to show a list of games owned by a user), and unkeyed apis for searching and retrieving information about games
