Damn Shoon that's dreadful news! I really liked GOG and had personally purchased 13 games from them to date (just as well I had downloaded them all to my server already!).

I'll miss GOG :(

That is a damn shame. I never did buy any games from them (because I blew my games budget on Steam and Xbox Live) but they were in my bookmarks and I'd got my eye on the original Fallout and Fallout 2 for future purchase.

Steam. Yep.

GOG. No. Not after this rather ill-advised publicity stunt.

I hate DRM, but Steam is a clear winner for usability and convenience. Maybe not cheapness, but there's occasionally a crazy good deal. I think I picked up Bioshock for under £3.

GTA IV for £5 was great.

Though just a heads up, last time I was in a steam discussion people were going "you can't trust them,they're just internet people they will cut and run!!!!!" :roll:

Don't be surprised if it happens again.

It will happen to even Valve some day down the line... :coffee:

Not saying they will cut and run but I really doubt they will last forever and I cant see them issuing retail hard copies to everyone who bought from them.

That would never happen on Amibay. :p

I will reserve my right to mock you mercilessly on the day that Valve go bust and Steam falls off the Internet for good. Of course, there's no time constraint on that claim, so I can hold out indefinitely. *muahahaha*

LOL Andy - I like that. I do worry a little about Steam given they could do that very thing and take my 45 games I have with them and no "media" to show for it as such (of course all games are off line and backed up on my server but kinda not the point - how many folks do that given that the storage is so far sitting at 80gb!).

Personally I prefer the GOG way. You buy it, you store the installation files and if you need them again you go and get them from GOG (unless they are gone of course).

Glad they're back although we could have done without the stunt because all it did was reinforce the fact that this could have been real!
