Pay Want You Want for Interplay Games on GOG for the Next 12 Days

GOG is having a big sale on old Interplay titles, offering a “pay want you want” deal for an eight-game package, “pay above average” for a 20-game package, and offering 32 games for $34.99.

Some of the classic games on the list are Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics, Descent, Descent 2, Descent 3 + Expansion, MDK and MDK 2. Other games on the list are… forgettable, to be polite, but it’s worth shelling out the money to collect the gems.

For the “pay above average deal,” the average price is currently $14.40, but this figure will be in constant flux. As of this writing, over 125,000 games have been sold.

Head over to GOG to jump on this deal.

Perhaps I’m confused but what if I only want to pay one millionth of a penny?

Normally I’m all for anything GOG related and support them and the way they do things as much as I can.

Though the cracks are starting to show with sales like these that they’ve been having.

First off it’s not pay what you want, everything in that sale has fixed minimum prices depending on which column they’re in. Some may say this is nitpicking but you could apply this to everything sold as “pay what you want” as long as you pay at least X amount. A more honest name for these sales would be “Pay at least what we want”, which is pretty much every sale ever, so nothing special really, just a misleading title.

So the misleading advertising aside, the more unpleasant crack that GOG is now showing, is in these bundles if you’ve already purchased one of those games from them you don’t get a discount to the bundle and instead get a code you can give away.

This basically forces long time customers that want to take advantage of these sales to buy things they’ve already paid for, every single time they want to support one of these sales.

While such sales might get new people interested in GOG and will sell games, it’s still a subtle middle finger being given to those that have long supported GOG and already have some or many of the games in these bundles but are interested in the bundle for the games they’re missing to help fill their GOG collection.

Never thought I’d say this about GOG, but these sales are essentially a rip off to their faithful long term supporters. Nice going GOG.
