I was talking with one of my nephews this weekend and mentioned that occasionally I find decent free games at GoG.com, a site he’d never heard of. I showed him the site and discovered something I hadn’t been aware of: You can see all of their free offerings in one place, not just on their front page.
A lot of them are demos and alphas, but among those packages are full-release games. Sure, some of them are a little old, but imagine the savings of getting (as of this post) Ultima IV for free today, saving around $50 in 1985 dollars. Who says delayed gratification doesn’t pay off?
To be fair, the prices for the original game new-in-box appears to be around $200, but you still wouldn’t have played it in the interim if you wanted to keep it in that sort of shape. Lucky it’s free, right? 🙂
