As the world moves toward digital distribution as the primary source for game sales, many of the biggest publishers and console makers still sell their products with DRM. Even though many of the same games may be available on Steam and GOG Galaxy in the near future, gamers should seriously consider purchasing DRM-free games through GOG Galaxy.
Outside of the growing number existing and forthcoming benefits of GOG Galaxy over Steam, there’s another overall concept that makes GOG Galaxy the better choice: the principle of player choice and customization. From the upcoming update, which will allow players to rollback game updates to customizable achievement and chat features, GOG Galaxy is all about giving the player what they want. Even the client itself is entirely optional.
