Good Ol Games AKA My New Favorite Website

So, I've got a new company I love, and it's called Good Ol Games. They are a website that through deals with various game companies offer a wide variety of games for you to download and play. Good ones, some newer and some older. You get the game file, usually a pdf of the manual an extra stuff, and the best part? No DRM! What is DRM? It is basically this annoying copy-protection stuff that is actually an utter pain which makes moving your game file difficult or impossible, or can make it so you have to be online to enjoy your game, and other annoyances. GOG however knows to trust in players that once they buy the games they will behave properly, and at the low prices they offer, why wouldn't you?

Thanks to GOG I got a game I loved as a teen called Arcanum (Full title, "Arcanum: Of Steamwork and Magick Obscura") for $5.99--that's less than lunch at a nice restaurant! I plan to do a big post about this game and how I love it sometime in the future so keep an eye out, but it's all thanks to GOG, so thank you Good Ol' Games!

Oh, as always it goes without saying that I am not being paid by anyone to say this. GOG did not contact me in any way, I learned about their website through the internet and magazines like PC Gamer and I went there and paid for game like everyone else. I am going to tell them I said something positive about them, but there is absolutely no conflict-of-interest happening here--I genuinely love these guys. I know it just sounds odd to hear that considering how often I criticize stuff, but I do.
