Pretty apropos that this happened in 2019. Flying cars notwithstanding, Westwood created an eerily accurate current day Los Angeles 22 years ago. :shifty:

On a serious note, I'm all over this.

I have made the decision to pretty much stop  buying anything from GOG, and I am in the process of migrating to Steam.

For this Winter sales, I have spent close to $100 on Steam and from other venues that sell Steam keys.  I spent about $30 on Origin -- but only to buy Mass Effect trilogy and Dragon Age II DLC packs, which are Origin exclusives that are  not available on Steam or elsewhere.  Those DLC were the last and only things I wanted from Origin, so most likely I will NEVER spend any money on Origin ever again after this Winter sales.  I am looking to spend $5 to $10 on Epic because I want to use the $10 off $15 coupon.

On GOG, however, I have spent only about $3 for this Winter Sales, and only very reluctantly because those games were not discounted (at 80-percent) elsewhere.  This entire year (2019), I have spend less than $20 on GOG.  I currently own over 400 games on GOG, and almost all of them were bought before 2018. 

I will still buy games from GOG if they are not available on Steam and made by CDProjektRed.  Otherwise, I will continue to stay away from GOG.  Frankly, if I can find a way to get rid of my GOG account and recoup most of the money, I will do it.

I will write a long article as to why I have made that decision later.  A lot of reasons that have contributed to my final decisions to distance myself from GOG.  Honestly, other than the cult-like mentality to support "No DRM", (which is really just a gimmick that appealed to me in the past but not anymore,) I have found very few other reasons to buy from GOG.

You wasted your money. They show as downloaded but don't activate on Origin for some reason. I tried many different fixes I googled, talking to customer support (even they didn't know what was wrong), and sending BoiWare an email. Nothing fixed the problem.

Whoa. 

Anyway, I am downloading Mass Effect 2 + DLC right now, just to test them to see if they work properly.

Based on what I've been reading, you need to connect to the now-defunct "Cerberus Network" to use the DLC: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Mass-Effect-2/Can-t-connect-to-Cerberus-network-in-Mass-Effect-2/td-p/5893580

The Mass Effect series dlc works just fine. It's Dragon Age 2 that's borked.

Whoa thanks. 

Anyway, I completed my Mass Effect trilogy DLC last week, but bought the Dragon Age 2 DLC just this week.    Will ask for a refund quickly.

Frankly, I've never been much of a fan of Dragon Age.  I am more of a fan of the Mass Effect trilogy, and always thought the Dragon Age universe pale in comparison to  many other sword-and-sorcery, elf-and-dragon fantasy competitions that have over-saturated the RPG market.  Only got the first two Dragon Age to complete my "classic BioWare collections".

GOG Galaxy 2.0 is amazing, that's the #1 reason right there. Also, much better support of older titles on modern systems -- every one of my GOG games runs on Windows 10 "out of the box". After that it's mostly about personal preference, differences between communities, etc.

Sidenote (and maybe I'm missing sth here): what's up with the huge font?

Frankly the only reason I started buying on GoG was for digital versions of very old games. After that I'd occasionally buy one because I liked having a full version I could download that was not tied to any launcher. So one day if I retire to a log cabin in the woods I could maybe still play those games even if I had no internet.  But their selection is still sparse in terms of stuff I'd personally buy/play, even if they have been getting more and more of the newer indies.

Saying their launcher is amazing isn't a real (objective) reason to buy from GoG, imo. Some people feel that way about Steam's launcher. Some hate all launchers, period and the whole reason they want GoG games is to avoid launchers. Still personal preference.

I'm not sure why one would want to completely halt buying from GoG tho, unless it's about wanting the most games on a singular launcher only (Galaxy doesn't = not having to have other launchers installed). Steam is probably still the best for that sort of thing, for now. Myself, I simply buy a game on the platform I dislike the least, if there is one - or I don't buy it.

Galaxy 2.0 is the only launcher that allows you to integrate and organize all your platforms in one place and thus organize and manage your entire game library in one launcher. It keeps track of achievements, hours played and games owned, combined across platforms. I've been using it since august last year (closed beta) and it's very impressive, and the kind of evolution I want to fully support -- hence my choice of GOG as my primary platform.

I've also been using Galaxy since last summer and can vouch for this. 2.0 is great, especially if you're a thrift shopper like I am and have games on basically whatever happens to be the cheapest.

Well, I'll say this at least - the fact GoG doesn't FORCE you to use their launcher to simply play their (single player) games is a win. When I first heard of Galaxy that was my main concern. If they ever do go that route then I'd personally not see any reason to buy newer games from them vs. Steam. Just me and my own "don't want lots of launchers" pickiness of course.

I quite like GOG Galaxy, its very minimalist. Not too much crap in your face like Steam. Also, a good old game I just got was The Curse of Monkey Island. Not sure if it's still on sale.

That's my point.

If you decide that GOG is a good platform, and use it:
