Remove impossible wishes from GOG's wishlist

More often than not, people add games that have never seen a PC release on GOG's wishlist (Final Fantasy VI, Chrono Trigger, etc). It would be nice that in order to add a game you had to put a source confirming that the game ACTUALLY EXISTS.

How about a new status for wishes? A wonderful trio: "in progress", "completed" and "impossibru!" ;) <br /> To be more serious: I saw a wish to add an iOS/Android emulator to GOG. Why not for other platforms? If enough people wish it? Pecunia non olet! :)

Back in the early 1900's, a hand held radio transceiver was the impossible wish of any general or spy. Now, they are down to less than the size of the palm of your hand. Was that an impossible wish? Think of that whenever you use your smartphone, wireless dongle, walkie talkie, etc. <br /> <br /> On console only (so far) games; I think they should be tagged as such. Don't separate them, so people will still see them and check them out. Then, if enough votes accumulate, maybe there might be a case to contact developers etc. <br /> <br /> I boo console developers who don't have a pc port - they didn't develop the game on a console did they? Last I checked, there were no SDK's usable on a console.

Terrible idea. Also, who are you to say a wish is impossible? If anything a well voted thread gives you leverage to make the impossible possible at times I would assume.

SNES emulation does not require distribution of any "BIOS/system" ROMs. All you need is the rights to distribute Chrono Trigger's SNES ROM and couple it with one of the many existing emulators. Same for NES, GB, GBC emulation, and many other platforms. GBA/PS1 emulation benefits from a BIOS, but is not always necessary. <br />

Also, what if a not-yet-PC-Game gets a PC-Port BECAUSE people wish for it? <br /> If people didn't wish for the seemingly impossible, I bet a lot of quite possible things woudln't be out there, because they were thought to be impossible before. So... I downvote this. <br /> (Only, don't add a downvote. It's a wishlist, not an unwishlist, and a wish doesn't need arguments. And if there are good reasons against something - as has been pointed out: there are comments, aren't there?)

This and the "downvote" idea seems harmful. GOG Connect probably wouldn't happen, looking at all the dissenting voices in the "GOG and Steam Interconnectivity" thread. <br /> <br /> Nope, this is a bad wish.

I think for transparency, it's good to keep wishes if they are not overtly offensive or duplicates. I do think there should be a downvote so the community can downvote stupid wishes into oblivion. Both upvote count and downvote count should be visible though, not a just of sum of the two. Heavily negative wishes are maybe a lighter shade.

The Community Wishlist expresses the desires of the community. As such, I think all wishes are welcome. If one disagrees with the wish, they can't ignore it or leave a comment voicing their concerns. Even a seemingly ludicrous wish as requesting Chrono Trigger shows how many people would like being able to purchase a console classic in a DRM-free distribution platform if ever available.

I'd extend this to nonsensical wishes outside of games like all those "add my entire steam library into Galaxy" or "give me gift copies of every game I've ever owned" wishes. <br /> <br /> GOG are great at listening to us but there's gotta be a limit to the things asked of them. <br /> <br /> If not GOG directly then give us the ability to DOWNvote a wish, although I could easily see this being abused.

I disagree with "impossible" here. Once upon a time, Linux & OS X support was "impossible". Once upon a time, the LucasFilm Games catalog was "impossible". Wait until we have legit licensed emulator wrappers (much as Atari is doing with their 80/100 packs of classic emulated titles), and suddenly older console games can be sold DRM-free on GOG. BTW, Chrono Trigger actually *already* works on all of GOG's supported platforms! It just needs legit emulator/ROM/IP licensing, which, while an enormous legal and logistical task, is absolutely possible. GOG have done it before with more obscure titles, and they can do it again.

umm...I don't agree...I mean with the header in general..striving to do the impossible is the finest way to imrpove oneself...you'll never be able to do so, but you'll always improve over time... <br /> That said, yes, if games do not exist (or exist in the version that's usable here on GOG) then yes..

Obviously selling emulated games would only be done with the consent of the relevant IP rights holders, so that's not really a worry.

I agree, it just clogs up the list of wishes and lets use common sense on the possibility. I have seen stupid ones like Gog should acquire EA or GoG cure cancer. <br /> <br /> Also people need to actually use some brain cells regarding console emulation. If Cd Projeckt actually did any "official" work on emulation they would be the target of copy right litigation which is guaranteed to bankrupt them.

There have been PC releases (official collections) of many old console games, mainly ATARI and C64... (any of you ever played these? so much fun, even the hardware quirks are emulated in some fashion...) so might be possible for other sixth-generation consoles as well...

I see this more as just a case of something being simply out of GOG's scope. Comments below said that "it's not impossible cuz emulators n ports" but IT IS NOT GOG's business to develop either. It's the dev's or IP holder's part. GOG is a store not a game dev.

When people say "impossible wishes", it seems to me that this is more born of a "PC master race" mentality who can't fathom that people might want to play games from other platforms other than the PC.

What bothers me about this "request" is that at least half the votes aren't motivated by features that are wholly impossible, but rather by games that they simply don't want. <br /> <br /> You may not want console emulation, but that doesn't make fulfilment impossible by any stretch of the imagination, and it's deceptive and spiteful to claim otherwise.

Rather than removing these completely, put them in a section for "Higly Unlikely to Fulfill". Then, in a sticky at the beginnin/top explain WHY in simple, succinct terms so no one can say that you just don't want to be bothered with "XYZ" game because you don't like it, it is too much trouble, or it is too expensive—unless, of course, that IS why you won't get it. =^_^=

Just because some platforms require roms doesn't make it impossible, just less likely. <br /> <br /> Emulation has been tested in court many times. It's entirely acceptable to use reverse engineering to generate software to run such code. The exception would be if running the game at all requires circumventing an anti-piracy measure such as the game content being encrypted with a secret key under DMCA and similar laws. <br /> <br /> Luckily, that's both a modern thing (Playstation 3/Xbox 360) era, and it's also not how things actually played out. The cryptography methods are used to prevent running of counterfeit games on the the systems, not to allow the software to validate that the systems are valid. <br /> <br /> Meanwhile, there are certainly practical issues with running, eg., Apple IIgs software, as no one has worked out licensing rights for the ROM images they provide, but for the extremely popular platforms like SNES and NES, there are no such problems, and even more modern systems like the Game Boy Advance which features a sizable system ROM, the emulation authors have created work-a-like system roms via reverse engineering that allow 98% of titles to run without any system-provider copyrighted materiel. <br /> <br /> The point is that platform by platform the actual situation and barriers vary a great deal, and for a number of popular platforms the barriers are low or near-zero, beyond convincing game rights holders to sell their games here.

Releasing emulated non-PC games is different to using DOSBox. The hardware rights owner would also have to consent to the release (not just each game's rights owner). This is obviously true in cases where system BIOS ROMs are and system software are required by the emulator... and may well be the case for all other systems as well. Unless the system is so old as to be abandoned, or GOG can cut a deal with the guys who own the rights to Amiga, for example, this is a non-runner. <br /> <br /> For PC ports of games that don't already have them, why should GOG have to do your port begging for you? It can't be encouraging for GOG that most of the time such features are being requested that what is being asked is completely unreasonable or even impossible.

Old console games could be emulated on Windows (or Linux, whenever they add support for it), just like some of the older DOS games. However some other wishes really are impossible to fulfill, e.g. this one... <a href="http://www.gog.com/wishlist/site/purchase_ea_and_release_their_games_drm_free" class="light_un" target="_blank"><br /> http://www.gog.com/wishlist/site/purchase_ea_and_release_their_games_drm_free</a>

IF they could get the go ahead from publishers, GOG could very well offer older console games. Wouldn't even necessarily require porting, as emulators are common. They already use Dosbox, this is no different. <br /> <br /> So it boils down to whether they would want to branch into console titles given publishers' blessing or stay focused on traditional PC titles. Offering console titles would garner a lot of respect from me, but if they don't I certainly wouldn't hold it against them.

While I agree that games that don't even exist should not be on the wishlist. I do think that every single console game that people want to wish for should be allowed on GOG.com. Since everyone is using Chrono Trigger as an example, why not let GOG tell Square Enix that there are a TON of PC gamers who would buy Chrono Trigger on PC. A good example would be Sega, If you look on Steam there are a TON of console games made by Sega that have been re-made for the PC and released on Steam. If everyone on GOG voted for those Sega games I guarantee they would release their games on here. It would probably only take them less than a week to remove the Steam DRM and whatever else they have to do and then release them on GOG.com... Come on people, quit saying console games on PC are impossible. Considering that almost every console ever made before the PS3 and XBOX 360 has a near perfect emulator available on the PC, It would be absolutely easy for someone like Square Enix to release Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy 6 on PC. The 972+ people who voted on this are not thinking outside the box!

I disagree with almost anything being impossible they have EA releasing DRM free games. I could see console games coming here. What about consoles long dead. Maybe the 3 or so good games off the Jaguar. Xbox and Dreamcast games sneak late to the show into PC realms. A lot of Download PSN XBLA games eventually come to PC. PC is the most convenient way for me to play my games. The more I can play on one box the better.

I understand the frustration here. I agree that only PC titles should be wishlisted, as it is outside of GOG's ability to actually port non-PC titles - that is up to the developers/publishers of the game themselves. Bear in mind that even PC titles are under the control of the developer/publisher, and many such franchise holders like to keep their own games for re-release in collections (such as EA's Command & Conquer: The First Decade). The most GOG can actually do is contact developers/publishers, and let them know exactly how popular their old games are - and maybe with a significant number of votes, these can be the start of negotiations to get such developers to consider porting their games and distributing them via <a href="http://GOG.com" class="light_un" target="_blank">GOG.com</a>

Agreed - if the game doesn't actually EXIST, then it shouldn't be here. <br /> <br /> I do agree with others below that if people request such things, that a separate list be maintained so that people know not to re-request said game again - because this will keep on happening otherwise!

Not voting. <br /> <br /> An alternative would be to have all threads that request a game which has not had a confirmed PC release be moved to a separate tab/section. This tab would include requests for: console games/requests for ports to PC (e.g. Halo 3), PC games still in production and games that have never been published or planned to (vaporware and wishful thinking).

it would be nice to know if a wish is 'impossible' so you wouldn't have to wait so long not knowing if the game will ever be released. plus : there would be a better overview.

Maybe a better solution would be to put console and PC titles into two separate categories or something. This would mean that console titles would still show up, but console titles and pc titles would be both be given their own separate "rooms," so to speak.

This. <br /> <br /> I hate that my favorite PC games are buried under console wishlists. So many great PC games could be released, but no, CHRONO TRIGGER!!!!!!!!!!

Chrono Trigger is now available on smartphones. Why was bringing it to smartphones plausible, but to PCs impossible? Who is anyone to tell people what games they are allowed to wish for? The wishlist could use a clean up (particularly duplicates), but we definitely don't need this kind of wish policing. And besides, I find it endearing that there's over 1200 votes for Freelancer 2. :P
