Doom 3 + Resurrection of Evil

Why do we want it on

The rest of the Doom games save the latest one are 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

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

Why do we want it on

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.

Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth

Why do we want it on

There is a glaring omission on GOG, and that is the almost complete lack of Cthulhu titles, and this is one of the better ones. Yes, it is buggy, but if the GOG wizards were able to put in some of the fan fixes available for the game, it would be a worthwhile game for purchase. The atmosphere does a good job of representing the famed Lovecraft short story, The Shadow Over Innsmouth.


Why do we want it on

GOG managed to get the two System Shock games through Night Dive Studios, and even the new System Shock is destined to make it there too in 2017 some time, so it would be great if BioShock would finally make its debut on the DRM free digital distribution service. At one stage you could get a DRM free copy of the game through Humble Bundle, particularly when they bought the Humble 2K Bundle a while back, and BioShock was in the minimum tier.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

Why do we want it on

The rest of the TES series is on, except Oblivion and Skyrim, and I think Oblivion would be a great addition. It's old enough for sure, and on top of that, it would be only be the GOTY Deluxe version, not regular GOTY.

Fallout 3 + Fallout: New Vegas

Why do we want it on

Seeing as the rest of the Bethesda catalogue is making its way to GOG nowadays, it would be cool if Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas could join the other older Fallout titles, as well as their TES, Quake and Doom cousins.

I think it would be great for anyone who steal has fears about buying Fallout 3 on Steam because of GFWL. They could just have a totally DRM free alternative on GOG.

Condemned: Criminal Origins

Why do we want it on

Other titles by Monolith, chiefly the F.E.A.R. games and Shogo: Mobile Armour Division, are already on, I'd like to see this make it there too. Its undoubtedly one of the most frightening games I've ever played

Hitman: Blood Money

Why do we want it on

The rest of the series made it to GOG, even the illusive third entry in the series, Contracts. Blood Money is about the best in the series, even better than Absolution, so I can't really understand why it hasn't made it here yet. The Steam version is essentially DRM free nowadays, so it can't be that hard to get a DRM free GOG version up and running. It just boils down to negotiating deals with publishers. This game needs to come to GOG!

Mass Effect

Why do we want it on

Since more EA games are headed to GOG nowadays, 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.

Quake 4

Why do we want it on

All other Quakes are on GOG, so I'd like to see this one make it there too eventually. And if Beth is reading this, it wouldn't be bad to get Enemy Territory: Quake Wars up either. Yeah, you know, that one, that nobody really remembers any more.

Brothers in Arms series

Why do we want it on

Despite the game looking and feeling like a subpar port, which it essentially was, this is one of, if not the greatest WW II series of FPS games ever made, particularly the first one. For me it was such a departure from the usual one man army approach that Medal of Honor used, or the scripted journey that Call of Duty opted for. This game actually used real battlefield tactics, i.e. laying down suppressing fire, flanking the enemy, and flushing them out with grenades and a hail of gunfire.

I'd love to see it on GOG, because the only WWII shooter there right now is Allied Assault, and as good as that it, this is technically a lot better.

Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield Gold

Why do we want it on

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.


Why do we want it on

This is the spiritual successor to the Far Cry series, and while I don't see Far Cry 3 and 4, or Primal coming to GOG any time soon, Crysis might be on the cards in the future, and perhaps even Crysis 2 as well, seeing as it is already essentially DRM free on Steam as is, although I prefer the original. Then they can bundle Warhead with it (Crysis) as well.

Assassin's Creed II

Why do we want it on

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

All second generation Tomb Raider games (Legend, Anniversary, Underworld)

Why do we want it on

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 as 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 + Max Payne 2

Why do we want it on

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

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, San Andreas

Why do we want it on

There have also been regional issues with these games, particularly GTA III on Steam. I'd like to get a 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 (Diablo, StarCraft, WarCraft)

Why do we want it on

Right now, the only way to get these games online is to purchase them through Battlenet. I think having Diablo on along with Balder's Gate and the other great RPG titles 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.

Red Alert 2 + Yuri's Revenge

Why do we want it on

I mentioned earlier with StarCraft that there is a distinct lack of good RTS titles on, and In addition to that, there is also a glaring ommission in that there is an absolute lack of 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.

Commander Keen

Why do we want it on

As many id software games as there on right now (Wolf 3D, Doom, Quake and even Dangerous Dave), I find it unfathomable as to why there are no Commander Keen titles here.
