GoG is awesome all around. In addition to what's already been mentioned, they don't pretend US dollars and Euro are the same thing, unlike Steam. That's something I appreciate as a European customer.


To be fair, it's not Valve that sets those prices. It's the publishers.

I appreciate GoG, and think it's great for older games that are beyond support. But, I am kind of against buying things like newer Indie games there simply for the sake of patches/updating...Steam (Or even say, Desura) are easier for this sort of thing, given the auto-updating nature and all-in-one client.

I never used GoG. I wish I could though, seeing as they have many games I want (the classics, specially), and their DRM policies REALLY interest me.

But they still don't accept Brazilian credit cards, something that prevents me buying from them...


I have so many jokes I want to make that would all get me moderated.

This post will have to do.


Probably some 'Murica-type jokes.

Nah, thanks.


'Murica, F*** yeh!!! No, in all honestly when I have to play against Brazilians in CS I almost want to cry.


These are the jokes I would make and you're immediate reference to 'Murica is partially what makes it such an unhappy experience to play with people like you.

GOG is pretty awesome. I wish they had more games available though.

I like GOG best among all the digital distributors.

My only real problem with them is that they're missing a lot of games. Like the Homeworlds, Mechwarriors and Rise of Nations. If they had those, they'd be perfect.

I like how you instantly default to insulting the US with "Murica" when faced with a joke.
Good on you, Marcelo.

There are people who don't insult the US? Where?

The only problem with gog is that its owned by CD Projekt RED

It means they make embarrassing boasts like they're "bringing Baldur's Gate back to life" when BG could easily be bought still under several hardcopy labels worldwide

If I could still get my hands on an original big-boxed copy of Baldur's Gate II, giant manual and all....

I only like them when I feel nostalgic about playing an old game that's nowhere to be found but GoG. Other than that, I've encountered quite a few problems with some of their "DRM-free" games that were in fact "cracked", and wouldn't work properly for one reason or another. Therefore, given the opportunity, I'd rather deal with Steam, Origin, or Uplay DRM as I've yet to encounter any issues with those.

It'd be interesting to know why that is. In my line of work Brazilians are well respected, highly sought-after clients, and I wish I had more of them.
