I have to say that I was mildly miffed when Good Old Games pulled its weird little PR stunt last week, pretending they were dying and then showing up in wizard robes going “Fooled you! We were just coming out of beta! You looked silly, wailing and rending your clothing like that.”
But all is forgiven now, for GoG has finally gotten their classic-game-selling paws on that most classic of classic PC RPGs, Planescape: Torment.
It’s one of the greatest games of all time, and still has one of the best-written storylines of any RPG ever made. And it’s $10 bucks. And it’s compatible with modern PCs (more than I can say for my disc version). And it doesn’t have DRM. And it’s available now.
So go get it! You have no excuse! Your computer can handle it. Given modern technology, by now you can probably run that game on a frickin’ iPhone.
And if you’re the type of person to refuse this mandate and go all “If I wanted to read text I’d buy a book”, you can get the book, too. But the game is better, of course. And cheaper ($19.60 v. $9.99)!
