GOG.com, where you can buy DRM-free copies of classic PC games, is launching its summer promo Battle of the Games, but the victor is going to be fans of classic gaming, because it means big discounts, and even a couple freebies!
Every day between June 19 and July 5, GOG.com will pit two classic games against each other, and it's up to gamers to visit the Battle of the Games page on their site to cast their vote for the game they most want to emerge victorious. Each round begins at 9am EST, and ends 24 hours later. And then, for the next 24 hours, the winning game will be discounted 60%! Of course, the runner-up will also be discounted 40%, so everyone's kind of a winner there!
The first round, starting the morning of July 19, will be between Myst: Masterpiece Edition and The 7th Guest. I know which one I'm voting for... how about you? (Unfortunately, as of this writing, Myst is in the lead guess that gives my vote away, doesn't it!)
A new pair of games will be revealed every single day betwen June 19 and July 5, and GOG.com is promising titles as varied as Psychonauts, The Witcher and Broken Sword: DIrector's Cut.
Oh, right, I did mention freebies, didn't I? Well, right now, GOG.com is offering Worlds of Ultima :The Savage Empire and Ultima: Worlds of Adventure 2: Martian Dreams free to all of their users. Can't do better than free, right?
