Ok I do agree with that. The huge tentacle monsters were annoying as hell.

In short: you can play old or (very) undemanding games but you'll struggle with new ones. GOG.com is full of, well, good old games.
Well thanks! I guess I will have to wait until I buy the PS3 to play the good games. In the meanwhile what games from GOG you recommend?

I have always some hate for huge tentacle monsters, from my first one in Parasite eve 2 to the latest in Bayonetta and Dantes inferno.

They are not that scary and really unoriginal by now, its due time to come up with new boss monsters, ( but i have to confess that some of the ones in Byonetta is really original.)

huge tentacle monsters... H.P Lovecraft did that hundred years ago, and Jules Verne.... and Robert Howard.
Time to make a new game with Clive Barker as writer, he can atleast com3e up with new stuff. ( yep, i played "his" game, Undying. )

I know it's late but, yesterday I played FF Chrystal Bearers on the wii. At first I thought it was going to suck since I am not a big fan of the wii but, I ended up playing 7 hours in a row. Is far from the best FF Not really RPG line (It's tatics in my opinion) but, I did enjoy myself and look foward to beating the game

Replaying Beyond Good And Evil.

Wow. This game was so goddamn good. The graphics and mood of the story were so simple and charming, with this humorous yet sweet sci-fi fairytale look... But it looked and still looks so good.

But mostly it's a FUN game. As many have complained, it's very stealth heavy, but it's well done stealth, so it doesnt bother me. And the whole miscellanous elements (object finding, photo hunt, arcade style fighting and so on) works beautifully. It's one of those games where the years have been kind and still makes modern games look bad in terms of pure joyful fun.

Lovely, even if it needs a lot of rough handling to get properly started under W7.

Sniper Elite is on sale for 2/$2/Yurps2 on steam. Not a great game by any measure but unusual enough to be worth a try.

It really depends what kind of games you like, GOG is just a distribution service so all genres are catered for.

If you're starved for inspiration, the always reliable PC Gamer Top 100 is well worth a read.

This list, although made for netbooks, is useful too.

Obviously, check the specs before you buy anything. The important stuff being:

OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate
Processor: Intel Core2Duo CPU T6400 @ 2.00GHz, 2000 Mhz, 2 Cores
RAM: 2.00 GB
Graphics card: Mobile Intel 45 Express Chipset Family (integrated)

I upgraded Steam sometime last week to the Beta version, but hadn't really poked around on it 'til now. Turns out, it's awesome!

It's a destructive and unstoppable addiction that ruins good people's lives. So yeah, it's awesome.

I just kind of didn't like browsing on Steam before cuz I thought the ui was a little slow, but I really like this beta version.
