GOG is returning to its ‘Good Old Games’ roots


In 2012, the online retailer formerly known as Good Old Games rebranded itself as GOG and began selling current releases, while promising to remain committed to DRM-free distribution and the absence of regional pricing. While GOG continued adding older games to the catalogue, they sat alongside more up-to-date releases. (A look at the banner on top of GOG.com today shows Horizon Zero Dawn beneath a rerelease of The Wheel of Time, which first came out in 1999.) Today, GOG announced (opens in new tab) a plan to “come back to our classic roots”.

Don’t expect the name to change again or those new releases to vanish from the shop. Instead, the aim is to make classic games more visible and the first step is a “revival of [the] Good Old Games concept”. The newly added Good Old Game tag (opens in new tab) highlights more than 500 games, each of which is over a decade old and widely considered a classic, though you’re welcome to quibble with the specifics of individual games.
