GOG stands for "Good Old Games" so yes, they only sell games old games. The best thing it's that their games are checked to be compatible with Windows XP and Vista and they are all DRM free.

I took a quick peek at the site.......is there a site that is similar to that site where I can download games? I looked at gametap, I have used them before and it was an ok site but they didn't put enough new games up. So any suggestions would be great

Thanks for the info

Gazzoid-I started Simon, and you may be right. As much as I love Chris Barrie, I'm not much into comedy. It's been okay so far, like I liked the credits. We'll see. I was also thinking of getting "Feeble Files" some day, since it has another Red Dwarf actor voicing, but again, it's a comedy. Would I like that one?

Hmmm... it's difficult to say. I guess The Feeble Files would come under comedy, but I didn't find it as funny as Simon the Sorcerer. Plus, it's a very hard game to solve.

The last tale of the most badass video game character ever.

Too bad I'll have to wait "7-21 days" (shipping period) until I be able to play it. I'm looking forward to kick Zeus' ass.

Time for a Splinter Cell marathon before the release of Conviction.

I've just bought Tex Murphy: Overseer on GOG. It's the only one in the (FMV) series I haven't played. I figured it was time to fix that.

And because I've pre-ordered from ShopTo.net, I should get a free long-sleeved t-shirt. Puzzling why I wasn't asked for my size though.

I just bought Sanitarium on GOG. I've never played it before and it looks exceptional. Can't wait to get started.

Bought the new Sam & Max season, already finished the first episode.

It's a lot more fun: I remember from season 2 I had no idea what to do several times and I really had to revert to a walkthrough (and I hate doing that). This is actually the first S&M episode I'd like to replay immediately!

Machinarium. Unfortunately, in Italian only, so yes, I did download it illegally as well. I don't feel bad about it, though as I purchased the actual game too. I just hate the localization of games.. Make all of them multilang!!!!!!!!!!
