GOG, the store-front for DRM-less game titles from CD Projekt Red, have also joined in on the Black Friday craze. It's just so much of what makes the world great - from hardware to software - that's vying for our limited wallets that it's hard to know how to focus - unless you have a pretty strong will to commit to your pre-made listings (which you did do; right?).

The DRM-less storefront is listing titles with up to 90% discounts over their current RRP. This includes gems you can only find on GOG such as the Soldier of Fortune Titles, CD Projekt Red's The Witcher games, all manner of older Fallout and The Elder Scrolls titles, Spore (remember that one?) Stellaris, Battletech... As well as many more, less-mainstream offerings. Go on over to GOG - the sale is live through November 27th.

Best bang for your buck is probably Fallout 2, still a super fun game. AND it probably isn't super bugged like the disc versions were, or at least I hope. Divinity is still too pricey for a game that's a year old and considering they're trying to make this seem like a super sale.

Divinity 1&2 are worth every penny, all come's down to what you like. I got both at full price and don'''t regret it they have supported the game 100% and if your in to these type of game''s they will give many upon many hours of fun.

Otherr games are worthy are TW3 and Vampire Masquerade which both have many hours of play time, although with VM youu might have to check out the community patches for it.

To go along with the other recommendations I would add Stellaris is very much worth the money as well. The current iteration of it plays like Civ in space, with tremendous replay and customization/mod value on top.

It gets sad tho when Black Friday sales present a list of games where you can literally point at just one of them and say you don't own it. I'll be out now, trying to find my life back., ty :p

To be fair, most of the titles on GOG are NOT from CDPR. In fact, less than 1% are from CDPR.
Probably better wording would have been: GOG, the DRM-less storefront owned and managed by CDPR.
