Anti-Valentine reviews PC games and writes about the video game industry.
Doom 3: Resurrection of Evil
The rest of the Doom games save the latest one is on there, i.e., The Ultimate Doom, Doom II: Hell on Earth, and Final Doom, so this might we as well be packaged on there along with Resurrection of Evil, as is custom with most games, especially older games on GOG.com.
And we want the original one, not the BFG Edition, chiefly because the BFG edition is useless with most Doom 3 mods. It would be great if they could include the Lost Missions with it too.
Dark Messiah of Might and Magic
Arkane, the studio behind Arx Fatalis, also made Dark Messiah of Might and Magic, so it stands to reason that we would like to have both in their catalogue, as they are both very good games. In time, I imagine, Dishonored would be a great addition too, along with the DLC in the Definitive Edition.
Condemned: Criminal Origins
Other titles by Monolith, chiefly the F.E.A.R. games and Shogo: Mobile Armour Division, are already on GOG.com, I'd like to see this make it there too. Its undoubtedly one of the most frightening games I've ever played
Since more EA games are headed to GOG, like Sim City 3000, Dragon Age and Dead Space, it would be really cool to see Mass Effect end up there.
One of the biggest and best-selling franchises of all time, it would make for a major draw if it ended up on GOG.
Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield Gold
This is about the best tactical shooter ever made, I dare say even better than Rogue Spear—which was a long time favourite of mine. If they got it on GOG, they could then go about making it easier to package and install Iron Wrath, which for me has been a nightmare to get working with the Steam version.
Assassin's Creed II
The first Assassin's Creed is there, and we all know of the DRM issues plaguing the sequel, what with UPlay and so on. Even if you purchase it through Steam, you still have to go through UPlay. This is pretty standard with most Ubisoft games with only a few exceptions.
But on a personal note, I skipped this one entirely because of the problems it had, so I really wouldn't mind getting another chance on GOG.com.
All Second-Gen Tomb Raider Games
Right now there are only the first-gen TR games on GOG, and most of those are mediocre or even plain bad (think The Angel of Darkness, Revelation, Chronicles). The first three are the only ones worth having, and even then, I probably wouldn't even play them today.
Legend was the first good TR game in several years, and it was followed up by the equally astonishing Anniversary and Underworld. It's too much to ask for the reboot or the new TR game just yet, but I think GOG should try to get the ones I mentioned above.
Max Payne and Max Payne 2
For the past several years, I haven't been able to buy the first two Max Payne games because of some silly regional restrictions on Steam and resellers. It would be great to finally get a copy of it on GOG.com.
Plus it would be a way for 3D Realms to make up for taking down the Duke Nukem titles, by putting up Max Payne, a title originally published by them.
GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas
There have also been regional issues with these games, particularly GTA III on Steam. I'd like to get a GOG.com copy of San Andreas because the Steam copy is inferior to even the original disc version. They took out content, and even though there are patches to put some of it back, it still feels like a violation to me.
A DRM free copy of GTA IV, of the most DRM laden games I've ever witnessed, would also be greatly appreciated.
Blizzard Titles (StarCraft and WarCraft)
Right now, the only way to get these games online is to purchase them through Battlenet. I think having Diablo on GOG.com along with Balder's Gate and the other great RPG titles GOG.com has to offer would be lovely.
There aren't really that many good RTS titles on here, so StarCraft would be a welcome addition too.
UPDATE: Diablo and WarCraft are now on the site!
Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge
I mentioned earlier with StarCraft that there is a distinct lack of good RTS titles on GOG.com, and In addition to that, there is also a glaring omission in that there is an absolute lack of the Tiberian saga/Red Alert games. Tiberian Dawn, Tiberian Sun and Red Alert 1 are all freeware now, and Red Alert 2 can only really be purchased through Origin as part of the Ultimate Collection. Getting it on here, DRM free, would be great.
The third generation games would also not be unwelcome. Red Alert 3 is already DRM free on Steam, so it's not impossible.
As many id software games as there on GOG.com right now (Wolf 3D, Doom, Quake and even Dangerous Dave), I find it unfathomable as to why there are no Commander Keen titles here.
