GOG.com adding official support for Windows 8

GOG.com

For those like me that enjoy a bit of the older school of gaming, GOG.com is pretty much your best source of nostalgic games that will run on your modern day computer-machines. But time keeps marching on, and these games are only getting older. How much longer can we expect them to work on the latest OS?

Well, while I can’t actually answer that question for you, I can tell you that, as of today, 90% of games on GOG.com officially support Windows 8 — so they’ll be good for a few more years yet. The GOG team are adding more Windows 8 games as time goes by, and continuing to add Windows 7 support to some as well.

So there you have it, the GOG team have you covered. Even if, like one inevitable commenter, you’re still using Windows XP, there are plenty of games for you to play.

I like GOG’s way of doing things, much better than when you buy an old game on steam only to find out it’s unplayable due to os related issues.
If you are buying an older game on steam, make sure you check the steam forums for it first!
In alot of cases you can save headaches and money…

 

Yeah I had that problem when I bought Dungeon Siege 3 and got the first 2 as a preorder bonus, can’t run them.
