Last year we covered the launch of Good Old Games, a digital distribution service for PC games that specializes in classic titles that are at least a few years old – some of them dating back to the early 90s. The team behind GOG.com has built an interesting catalog of games that includes such classics like the original Fallout, MDK, Duke Nukem 3D, Earthworm Jim, Descent, and many others. Best of all, they are completely DRM free and available for direct download from the site.
The company recently signed a deal with Ubisoft to publish some of its best back-catalog titles and today they announced they have reached the 100 title milestone with the free point-and-click adventure game Teenagent. With other games ranging from $5.99 to $9.99 apiece, this service is definitely worth a look if not for the nostalgia factor alone.
And well, the kind folks at GOG.com have offered us a handful of titles for our readers. So what does it take to win? All you have to do is leave a comment saying you want to participate and we'll select five random winners by the end of the week. Each will receive two free games: one of the three Ubisoft titles that were recently added to the catalog (Beyond Good and Evil, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time and IL-2 Sturmovik: 1946) along with their choice from this week’s highest rated and best selling games.
Although you only need to comment to enter the drawing, to make the conversation a bit more interesting you could probably mention a title or two of the oldies that are most memorable to you. This top-rated list is probably a good start, I'd personally pick the original MDK.
