TechSpot: Interview with Good Old Games, plus giveaway

Good Old Games is just about that, reviving PC gaming classics. Having started with just two publishers and 40 titles backing them up, one year later GoG.com has expanded to include nearly 30 publishers and over 130 games, among which are such classics like the original Fallout, MDK, Duke Nukem 3D and many more -- priced reasonably between $5.99 and $9.99 for a DRM-free copy.

Good Old Games is just reaching its first anniversary, so we thought it would be a good idea to check back on them to see how things were going (and get more freebies for our readers, of course). We talk with the service's PR manager, Lukasz Kukawski as he comments on some of the challenges the service has faced, their DRM-free model, and a few other tidbits on the GoG operation.

Also... Don't miss TechSpot's GoG giveaway! Just comment here what game you would like to receive for free (check GoG's full catalog) and mention any other PC gaming classic you loved back in the day, and you are in. We will randomly select 15 participating users and announce a winner on Sunday night (October 11).

There's three things I love about GOG:

1. They fight piracy using a "value" model as opposed to DRM. They offer the original game, compatible with a modern OS, along with wallpapers, soundtracks, or other goodies for next to nothing. How can you say no to that?

2. The success of this service demonstrates (yet again) that there is a demand for these types of games, particularly adventure games. I'm so tired of publishers crying that there's no market for them, it's just not true.

3. GOG has the potential to become a digital game library, making the best classic games available on a modern OS without the need for the player to hunt around for it on abandonware sites (where it could be loaded with malware), find cracks to bypass original copy-protection, and tweak it to work on a modern OS. Pay a few bucks and it can be on your system, ready to play.

All they need now is to get Sierra on board and sales will go through the roof.

Its awesome. I learned about this site today oO. I've been looking for all those classic adventure games. If only adventure games genre wasn't so dead :(

Need MOAR TEX MURPHY!
