  • if you could make one improvement to DAO, what would it be? [no spoilers]
    Offline patch (I hated origin, hate EA launcher. I actually bought a copy on, hate DRM like this). - Source: Reddit / 3 days ago
  • Favorite systems for cyberpunk campaigns?
    If you own the game CP 2077, you already have the CP 2020 pdf. If it's installed, it's probably on your PC right now. If you go to the game's directory, look for the BonusContent folder, then the sourcebook folder. If you have it on console or it's not installed, you can link your game with a GoG account. Then you can just go to your library on and download the sourcebook there. - Source: Reddit / 3 days ago
  • [Request][gog] Terraria
    In conclusion, I would like to express my love and passion for indie developers, pixel art games, and "Terraria" in particular, and I hope you will consider my request. Thank you once again for your time and consideration. If you are willing to help me, you can gift me the game through or you can also gift me through steam, which has a sale right now and the game is 50% off right now . You can contact me... - Source: Reddit / 4 days ago
  • Steam is very good, but I do wish for more effort in the competition. is also OK because its also privately owned and isn't awful *despite* being owned by a publicly traded company. I still don't really trust like I trust Steam and Itch though. - Source: Reddit / 6 days ago
  • Games missing in heroic games launcher
    I logged into gog through heroic but its only listing 2 of the 7 games that I own. When I visit it shows all 7 missing games. Does anyone know why this is happening or how I can fix it? - Source: Reddit / 14 days ago
  • System Shock (2023)
    You can download a demo from before deciding whether to buy: - Source: Reddit / 15 days ago
  • Remember Deus Ex 2000 Goty?
    I've had good luck with the version of the game. I think it includes patches that the steam version doesn't have. That being said, try the community patch and see if that helps you get the steam version running. - Source: Reddit / 19 days ago
  • [OFFER] The Elder Scrolls III - Morrowind GOTY
    Got it with prime gaming, and even though a lot of people are giving away, maybe someone didn't get it yet. It must be redeemed at - Source: Reddit / 21 days ago
  • Two standalone, total conversion mods for Skyrim and Oblivion are now available on GOG!
    Where you logged in? When I go to and am logged in it says "owned" where the price tag would be for games I own. If I go to the store page it says "buy as a gift" instead of buy and instead of being a green button it's a grey one with a green frame and it gives a direct link to my library to download it. It also says right under the name of the game in a grey box "in library" on the store page. When I... - Source: Reddit / 23 days ago
  • am i the only one who prefers a console over a pc as a patient gamer ?
    If you're interested in games that you can download without being tied to something, checkout for DRM-free games. - Source: Reddit / 25 days ago
  • Battlecry III 40% off steam sale
    Apparently there's something wrong with that version like the version. Where can I get the best version? - Source: Reddit / 25 days ago
  • Where can I play the original three Rayman games? should have pc ports. Though I will say rayman 2 and rayman 3 have issues with newer systems. I am not sure if gog's rayman forever is working well (due to dos box being weird on forever after windows XP) but generally pc version of rayman 1 require dos box (dos games emulator) to work. Aside the ps1 version is fine. Plus anyway rayman redemption exists too. - Source: Reddit / 27 days ago
  • Should I Play Diablo 1, 2, or 3?
    Sounds good. I do have a PC, and I'm down for the version since it has Hellfire. I love monks and bards in DND, so I'd probably prefer to play them in Diablo 1. Thanks! - Source: Reddit / 26 days ago
  • How can I use Origin again and bypass this? Now it forces me to use the EA app which I can't use because I get an "Oh snap, it crashed" error everytime I try to launch the game exists. But I don't think you know what that is. But that's ok. You can keep spouting uninformed non sense regarding consoles vs pcs. - Source: Reddit / 28 days ago
  • Are there any Steam workshop downloader sites/programs that still work and don't use SteamCMD?
    I want to download some mods for a game but can't use the workshop since I have the game from (yes I know, not really piracy but r/Steam put my post on hold and I'm really hoping y'all can help, just pretend it's pirated game for a moment) and so far all of the sites/programs I've found have stopped working or use SteamCMD which doesn't support the game. - Source: Reddit / 29 days ago
  • What hobby is cheap, can be done at home, isn't too difficult but at the same time requires focus / concentration to do right?
    Computer games are another, if you don't have a powerful system there are things like minecraft or the some older games (try for these) that will run on almost anything. - Source: Reddit / 30 days ago
  • Is multiplayer still possible?
    My son wants to play NWN2 together, so I bought another copy on When selecting multiplayer, I had to create a bioware community account, and so did he. But when he starts a game and I try to join, I get an error that that CD key is already playing in that game, even if I use the Steam version and he uses the GOG version. When I enter my Steam keys in the Multiplayer Key Changer of the GOG version, I still... - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
  • How many launchers do you have installed? It feels like it's getting a bit excessive...
    Soft plug for GOG, fighting the good fight. - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
  • original CD's
    You can buy the complete edition on which includes AB and SoD so its unlikely Ubisoft would bother to release anything else related to H2 or H3. - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
  • I want to pirate Cyberpunk 2077, what's the best website from r/CrackedGames Megathread, and any tips for pirating its my first time LOL
    To be clear for the idiots gog and gog-games are two different places. gog-games is a piracy site thats all DDL and works with debrid services for fast af downloads. Gog is a game seller of DRM free games - they just hide their games behind a paywall.... So paying is the only "DRM". They are not the same thing to whoever downvoted u/IxBetaXI .... - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
  • I made matching wallpapers for my Laptop and Cellphone!
    You also dont even need the launcher, you can just download backup installers from games you own off and install them like that. - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago

The 7 Best Steam Alternatives
GOG, formerly known by its full name Good Old Games, runs a strict no DRM policy. DRM (Digital Rights Management) is a system used by platforms like Steam and Origin to control access to your downloaded games by requiring an online authentication. GOG simply lets you download the game's EXE file in your browser from their website, no frills and no strings attached. The files can be copied and backed up as much as...
10 Alternatives to Steam for Buying Cheap PC Games
GOG is a digital distribution hub made by the people at CD Projekt, the developers of the well-regarded Witcher series. GOG is short for “Good Old Games,” and as expected, it specializes in a large catalog of older games that can sometimes be hard to find on other services. Though GOG has expanded into newer high-profile and indie games as of late, the service and its Galaxy download client are 100% DRM-free. This...
