Thanks - Outlast copied over
Worst one yet for me, didn't even have one Still got plenty via the previous gog connects, just glad its still rolling out new games every now and again, wish they did it a bit more often (would forget to check if not for these posts) but still can't complain for free...
I have a couple of the games on there- I'm not sure I see the point of this though.
Be nice the other way around, then I could have my Witcher 3 on my Steam account

DRM free versions of the steam games you own... hard to not see the point...

I don't see the point either. Keep it all with Steam rather than all over the place
Thanks. Always good to have DRM free copies.

DRM-free you mean. Nope, I still don't see the point of downloading DRM-free versions of games that are already in my Steam library. Enlighten me?

If Steam ever disappears, you can still use your GOG copies. Heck, even if GOG goes away, you can use your DRM-free GOG copies, as long as you had the forethought to download them beforehand.

I have 174 games in my Steam Library- if Steam ever goes under, it's going be small solace if I have a handful of backup copies of games in DRM-free form.

I'd rather stay optimistic that even if Valve went bust, some way would be found to allow us to keep playing our Steam game collections. My e-Book collection has passed between 3 companies now, so I guess it would be similar with Steam.

I don't get the negative attitude to something offered for free... this is HUKD right?

Yes, but not all of them.
I can honestly say, that DRM doesn't bother me. I'm online PERMANENTLY, and if I lose internet connection, I can do something else in my life other than gaming.
I own some of these games yet GOG doesnt find them? Seems half assed system, steam family share is kinda useless as you cant share if your family is online it kicks you off the game even if they are playing something else :\

Yes, but not all of them.


So something i already paid for i get for free now? When do i get the money back?

They all have perfect reasons why they went under.

Valve makes millions selling pixels.

And whilst dota2 is around steam aint going no where
Better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it... its free and takes a minute... nobody will die

And people probably said similar things about all the brands I named, too... right up until the market conditions suddenly changed (sometimes in hard-to-predict ways) and they were unable to adapt quickly or effectively enough.

Valve said they would patch the games to not require steam to run anymore so you could download them and back them up. I doubt steam will be closing down anytime soon and if they do can you imagine the amount of companies ready to buy them out.

Seriously.... does it matter, this is just an option for ppl and it is FREE to do... I don't get why ppl are still arguing that it's pointless.

I'm aware of what Valve have said, but talk is cheap. Actually doing it would be expensive and probably won't be a priority if they're going into administration or liquidation.
