Retro and border line retro recommendations for some games to get off GOG?
>Syndicate Wars but no original Syndicate
>Syndicate shows up at the very end
>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.
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.
>actually making insightful statements on 4chan
Why can't this happen more often?
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.
>supporting slavshits that do censorship (Hatred)
>funding CDprojektRed (who false advertise)
>paying for pirate-cracks of old games
OP, stop being part of the cancer and obtain games that aren't tied to a distribution service.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
