Is the gog client available for Linux ?

Pretty much every game on gog is the best version of that game available so I would say anything you are interested in

i recommend Warsow for a FOSS arena shooter
>>
>>2907030
oh, except the original rayman. i don't know if they fixed it or whatever but supposedly the gog version is missing music among other things
>>
>>2906338
You can get all Ys game remakes for PC there. That's border line retro and highly recommended.

Also this >>2906461

Heroes of Might & Magic 2 and 3

That's mostly true, but GOG still hasn't fixed Myst and Riven.
>>
>>2906461
Judge Dredd the FPS is actually pretty shit though. It plays like a clunky console shooter.
>>
>>2907030
Not everything, sadly. They give you the DOS version of Cannon Fodder instead of the Amiga version.

Hello fellow GOG-bro.

>>2906338
>to get off GOG?
Just emulate. I don't want to start seeing Steam and Gog or whatever the fuck else the kids are into these days shit advertising threads shitting up this place, when all of /vr/ is easily, freely available via emulation.
>>
>>2909456
I don't want to pirate games.
>>
>>2909456
Pushing your own piracy agenda is no better.
>>
>>2909456
Both of those services sell the games for practically nothing. Just how destitute are you that you'll pirate something that costs a dollar?
>>
>>2909456
This is the attitude that is not only holding emulation back, but also holding back digital archiving. Because legislators point to people like you whenever archival reform is brought up.

How many of those have you gotten more than halfway through?

I have like 30 gameboy games that I feel bad about not even getting past the second level.

Most of them, honestly. The list has maybe ten titles that GOG gave away free through some promotion or another that I'm not interested in playing and most of the building games (Capitalism, Banished, Rollercoaster Tycoon, Tropico, etc.) are actually my wife's games. But the remaining 80 or so? Played.

OP, stop being part of the cancer and obtain games that aren't tied to a distribution service.

>obtain games that aren't tied to a distribution service
You mean like gog.com releases? It's not Steam, you can download everything with no DRM.
>>
>>2913331
Pretty sure the games are DRM free and I'm not hunting down used copies of these games. Not interested in pirating.
>>
>>2913331

What false advertise? They promised the best RPG ever and they delivered
>>

Anon, stop parroting /v/

honestly with the recent winter sale on steam,

I'm thinking of just going dedicated Gog. Since they tend to get new PC releases anyways.

Why are u a commie russian lover?
>>
>>2911610
many gog and steam games run on linux
>>
>>2907030
Nope. The best official version of Jagged Alliance 2 is Talonsoft-published version 1.07. But GOG has the JA2 Gold version and to add a fuck you, it's not even a clean install and has saved options settings. Fucking unprofessional.
>>
>>2907030
Also, their version of Heroes of Might & Magic 2 is NOT the best version. The best version is the Compendium version.
>>

>I'd rather give my money to shady yuropoors than just play games for free

More like they showed us Witcher 3 with amazing graphics and then later gave us Witcher 3 with shit console-tier graphics.
>>
>>2909507
What about games from defunct companies? If I can't give the original devs or at least publisher what I'm paying for it then what's the point? Why should I support GoG at all?
>>
>paying for abandonware
o i am laffin

>>2914412
By your definition, Grand Theft Auto V is abandonware.
>>
>>2914423
Except not really.
>>
>>2914437
Old GOG games are legally sold by their owners. GTA5 is legally sold by its owner. No difference.
>>
>>2914442
Cool generalization, but you're still wrong.

A lot of GOG games are renewed by different IP holders, so the original staff don't see a penny of the games sold via GOG.

I've gotten a copy of Giants: Citizen Kabuto. It's a fun shooter. I haven't played a shooter in a while so I kept getting lost with the setting and the jetpack landing.

Also, I recommend Dungeon Keeper: Gold and Rollercoaster Tycoon 1 or 2.

Are you trying to say publishers don't get any money from those sales? Because they do.

Or maybe you're trying to say that publishers aren't part of making games, which is even worse.

Anyway by your logic you wouldn't buy ANY physical retro game either. At least with digital ones publishers get a share, while with physical ones it really is random people.
>>
>>2906651
lgogdownloader man.
Do you even CLI?
>>
>>2916138

Publishers are fucking cancer and defending them is the most reliable metric I have that you are a universally goddamn terrible excuse for a human being.
>>
>>2916138
Both buying digital and physical is bad. You should pirate the ROMs and then donate to the developers directly if you actually gave a shit about supporting videogames in a non-harmful way.
>>
>>2916131
>*action*
kill yourself, underage retard
>>
>>2917803

Which I would do if I weren't convinced they'd turn me into the Copyright Czar (we have one of those now, in the USA). The publishing industry has half of them dead convinced that the horrible heartless pirates are stealing money directly out of the mouths of their toddlers and want to see them destitute while their wives perform tricks on a city corner to pay the bills. The narrative is that lopsided now.
>>
>>2914521

He's not wrong though. He said owners not original owners. Developers are usually already paid after the game is made with very little royalties, 90% of the games you bought probably went into a publisher's pocket unless it was an indie game or a very rare Doom affair.

Paying for a game just means that you have official access for it and that you're just voting for something like it to exist again. Highly unlikely but there is something to gain for paying for a service. What's nice about GOG is that they package the games to be ready to play on newer machines along with instruction manual pdfs and a decent installer. If you pirate ANY of the games on there, chances are you'll be getting a gog package anyway.
