I cant fathom why you'd want to do this. Does having them DRM free mean that you can install and use offline (which you can do anyway with steam games)

Every gog connect post seems to get a response like this.

It gives you your games in a different format and lets you play them independently of any third party drm or application and gives you an easy way to backup your games, if you feel that is important.

It also lets you play them offline if desired (though most don't, developers could add an online requirement to their games on Steam) and lets you play the games on another machine without tying your steam account up.

You also typically get more extras and bonuses with GOG games like original manual scans (for older games) and sometimes posters and artwork.

All fairly minor stuff admittedly but since you aren't paying any more for it, I don't see any reason to moan. I'd say there are far less useful freebies get posted than this, so heat from me!

I've found gog's customer service second to non. I shudder at the memory of last time I had to contact steam. I'm just praying that I won't need to again. Gotta stay I do like this, I assume it has everything to do with the dev but still a pretty cool feature imo.

I found that if you own Torchlight 2 bought from their Digital shop, you can claim a GOG key.

It being DRM free means that you actually own the game, so you can do what you want with it; Steam is DRM. You could indeed play it offline (which you can do on Steam but Steam's offline mode is a bit of a pain), you can freely install it on as many of your machines as you like (Steam accounts are limited by authorised machines) and you can install/play the games without having to go through another service (like Steam), not even GOG's.

You could even give out free copies to friends and "friends"... don't do that.

For me the biggest thing is that you have it forever. Steam is like Netflix whereby the things you've got access to are only accessible whilst Steam hosts them, but if Steam entirely removes a game that you own from their service then you're just out of luck (see Order of War: Challenge), though this is very unusual. With GOG you can have all the install files backed up locally, so even if they stop hosting a game you've still got it.

Hope this helps.
