GOG Hosts Summer ''Battle of the Games'' Discount Promotion

GOG is kicking off a summer promotion where games are pitted against each other to vie for your discount love.

GOG is kicking off a new summer promotion called “Battle of the Games” starting June 19th and ending July 5th.

Two games will be put into a voting match for 24 hours. Visitors to GOG.com will be able to vote on which game they believe is the better of the two games.

The winner of each round will be discounted at 60% off and the loser will be discounted 40%.

Although GOG won’t be releasing the lineup of games that will be put head to head, their press release regarding the promotion did drop some hints: “Even though the final line-up remains a mystery and new pair of games will be revealed every day, GOG.com users can expect dozens of highest quality DRM-free titles, including Psychonauts, The Witcher, and Broken Sword: Director’s Cut, dueling for fame and discounts until the early days of July.”

If you’re interested in voting, or just in the discounts being offered, head over to the GOG Battle of the Games page.

    Good Old Games is the BEST site from which to purchase games. All games (even older ones) are modified until they work (unlike Steam) and none of them come with DRM (unlike Steam).

    GOG got a lot of my buisness after they cracked Planescape Torment to work on Win 7 64bit. Installed, and played while deployed to Afghanistan. Aah pure nostalgia, I forgot what a game with an ACTUAL STORYLINE was like (many of their games can even be played on netbooks). I presonally would be slightly P.O.ed if Planescape, BG, Fallout 2, or Arcanum don't appear on this list (even though I already have them).

    I hope they make these to work on the Windows 8 surface ARM tablet. That would be an awesome end to ipad and android for me.
