    I'm hoping GOG add the 7th Guest at some point, it's still my favourite classic game.
    Also the classic Bullfrog games Syndicate/Syndicate Wars/Dungeon Keeper etc... (although it's unlikely EA will ever allow that to happen)

    W-00t - Master of Magic on GoG. The amount of time I wasted/spent on that during my teenage years. Now I can relive it all again :)

    Great news!
    Hopefully we'll see more actual classics appearing on GoG, rather than the bargain-bin stuff that shows up just a little too often on it for my tastes in between the bigger releases.

    I find the extra content (particularly the soundtracks) and convenient single-file downloads reason enough to buy games from GoG instead of Steam, on top of the price advantage.

    The lack of DRM is also a plus - I just hope that they're actually bringing in decent profits and aren't suffering too much from piracy.

    I played through most of outcast with only the pistol. Didn't even realize you could buy different weapons till way way late in game haha. I got really close to the end, some pyramid puzzle but a bug stopped it from working. Looked it up in a guide to see if I was doing anything wrong but I wasn't so had to abandon it. Hmmmm, I may revisit it, been a very long time.

    Im going to Youtube it now. Its bound to be there, everything ever is on that site haha

    It doesn't make sense for EA to not join up, can make money from awesome games as I'd definately buy old Bullfrog games. To my knowledge the only alternative is pirating them but haven't really looked to see if I can purchase somewhere other then bargain bin at a games shop.

    Does goodoldgames work like steam so I can download and play multiple times?

    Wow, I still have the CD's but haven't had it working since Vista. I will definately be looking at that.

    Hopefully there is a market for GOG that will allow them to survive to keep bringing new stuff out.

    I wonder if Soul Reaver will ever make it to GoG - it's a Win 95 game I believe, but it was awesome on the PS1.
