Please buy Cyberpunk 2077 on GOG!

December 7th, 2020

I come back from the grave with a simple request: If you are going to buy Cyberpunk 2077, PLEASE consider purchasing it on GOG instead of any other DRM-ridden platforms.

Cyberpunk is easily the game release of the year, and the fact they chose to go DRM-free is a great victory to anti-DRM advocates. Game studios like to hide behind the defense of combatting piracy, so if you can afford to buy the game, and want to play it, please also consider purchasing it (on GOG) rather than pirating it, however trivial it may be.

If these studios see more games doing well on DRM-free platforms, more of them may choose to forego the hundreds of thousands of dollars Denuvo charges in some cases for their dis-services.

I will be buying Cyberpunk 2077 on GOG, and I hope you will too. Thank you.
