DRMless is Worth More

I usually don’t play old games. I admit that I ‘m a shallow gamer. Once I know there’s a better looking version of a game out, I just don’t enjoy playing the old one as much, even when the I prefer the style/mechanics of an older version.

As a result, I’ve never bought anything from Good Old Games until this week. I preordered Witcher 2 through GOG.com, even though I bought the original Witcher through Steam. I was planning to get the sequel through Steam when it went on sale eventually, but then I read that it wasn’t going to have any DRM on it through GOG. To me, that’s worth paying full price and not waiting on some crazy Steam sale.

Now I just need to actually finish the first one.

  1. I want to get through the first game too, but I realized I can’t, I just can’t do it. I don’t know what it is, maybe it’s the controls, maybe it’s the fact I’m in a really tedious spot right now, but strangely enough I have no motivation to play again.

    I’m still interested in Witcher 2 though, but I wonder if I should still bother if I haven’t finished the first and I have no idea how similar the style will be.

      I’m in the same fix. I’ve started the original game a few times, but it always seems like something else comes up that I’d rather play.

    Thank you for the reminder. Not that I’m going to be reinstalling Witcher 2 years down the line, but there is piece of mind knowing that I could.

      That’s the big thing for me too, knowing that I can reinstall it months or years later if I want. Assuming of course that I still have a compatible operating system and hardware. It’s exactly the same thing with paper vs. e-books.
