I added critical reviews to each game to show that the initial 8 have some value.

Minimum is 99 cents. I know I won't play the 8 games offered, so not worth it.

Theo nly games from the whole lot I might even want are Fallout 1&2 & Tactics, and potentially the Earthworm Jim games. And I can get them elsewhere for less than $35 if the urge really hits me (and I kinda doubt it will).

And VR Soccer '96? Really?

It would be much better if the packs could customized. I might go for the penny bundle just to pick up Screamer. The beat the average bundle might be nice for Messiah, Giants, Descent and Freespace. However, like a lot of these DD packs, you get so much extra crap that sometimes its not worth picking up the good stuff.

If you liked Fallout Tactics, I would recommend Jagged Alliance. The gameplay is like FOT on Squad Turn-Based mode. Hey, it's only a penny.

Don't get the complaining. Best games will always be on the highest tier. That's how it is for all bundles and models like this, like HIB or Indie Gala.

But GOG gets flack for giving you 8 games for $1. Go figure.

Of course the only game I'd care about are in the $35 selection. That is way too much to spend on the Fallout games and MDK.

Not really a fan of these "PWYW" deals from GOG.

I think they're great I got divinity for a penny and 8 interplay games for a penny. It's basically free.

IMO: It'd be worth 35 if it included the Witcher 2

I won't play most of those games on the highest tier and if I just bought those that I want and need I'd pay maybe 10 bucks.

Regardless, thanks op! 8 games that I'll never play for 1 cent.

I'll be honest - we're throwing science at the wall here to see what sticks. No idea what it'll do. Probably nothing. Best-case scenario, you might get some superpowers. Worst case, some tumors, which we'll cut out. " - C. Johnson

At the 8-game tier, I agree that there's not much here, but at the 20-game tier, dang! That's too much good stuff to pass up. Looks like Gog's getting some money from me this weekend.

Same here. This deal goes on for 13 days though so I will wait to see how much that average will drop. Hoping to see it hit 6ish.

I think the issue is the 8 games are all rubbish. Stuff that noone ever goes, "Hmmm I think I'll have a go at that again..." The good stuff is in a $35 tier! $35 is a lot to pay for any game let alone 32 old ones.

For a penny I can't complain, but I agreed the quality level of the Tier 1 games here doesn't even come close to the value in other bundles. Even Indie Gala usually has some pretty decent games to draw you in.

I honestly wasn't paying attention: how much did the Divinity bundle end up at? Anyone know?

In for $0.01 now, and will probably pick up the "beat the average" tier after it goes down to $5 or so. Thanks!

You may appreciate the changes made to the enhanced edition. I never played the vanilla version but virtually every aspect of the game was tweaked. Most folks feel that it's a terrific RPG and I would be among them.

It never dipped much pat $12ish.

I expect this one to dip more those since I expect a ton of people to go cheap and get the penny/dollar games.

If I hadn't all ready bought the old Fallouts then I might have picked up the 35 pack. There are about 3 in the 20 pack I wouldn't mind playing.
