Am I the only one who feels this site has lost a lot of its identity since they dropped the "Good Old" part of their name? DRM-free is all well and good, but I find I'm a lot less interested in the store now that's it's being flooded with brand new indies and 2-8 year old bargain bin titles. I can, and do, get all of that kind of stuff on Steam...
In order to get some of that precious market share from Good Ol' Steam they are going to have to offer competing products and services, and that will mean many of the same games being available on both platforms.
Anyone who is still looking for a classic windows or dos game that GOG doesn't have-- I'd strongly suggest looking at the eXoDOS compilation, it covers so many of the classics and has a really nice frontend as well for installing/launching any of the titles in a couple clicks.
If GOG happens to carry the game later on down the road you can still pick it up and use the save file you're working on with the GOG version.. truly a win-win =)
They have to go where the money is.. and unfortunately that is never going to be continued trips down nostalgia lane for an evermore-niche audience.
