RockPaperShotgun has released an article on how GOG.com goes about preserving old games. They really seem to put their heart and soul into what they are doing. And it looks as if the task of making these old classic run properly on new machines is not as trivial as thought…

That was a good read. I own a lot of classics from GOG. The Infinity Engine games released digitally was the initial draw but then when all the classic Origin games, especially the complete Ultima series and all the old Might & Magic and Heroes of Might and Magic games were released I became a permanent regular there. I was thrilled to see a lot of the Gold Box D&D games release recently and setup for Mac. I may never get around to all of that but I like having them in my collection for if I find the time.
