The DRM-free digital game store GOG.com is celebrating 10 years online!

Originally named Good Old Games, the site was launched to the public in the fall of 2008, when digital distribution was still relatively in infancy. It was founded by CD Projekt, a Polish company that had managed to essentially create a gaming market in Poland after beating rampant local piracy in quality and even price. As time went on, Good Old Games had more and more classic sweethearts, some of which they have fixed on their own with publishers' permission. In 2012, they decided to include newer titles as well, AAA and indie alike, so the name was changed to just "GOG". As of 2014, they also have their own client called GOG Galaxy for easier library access, that was later expanded with a multiplayer API that can work alongside Steam's for crossplay.

Today GOG.com celebrates. Many games are now on sale, including those in special bundles, and let you choose one of three games to be given away - once you make a vote between Shadow Warrior 2, Superhot, and Firewatch, you will be able to claim whichever game wins on October 4th for free.
