Oh I already bought The Witcher 2 when it was first released, and the first game from GOG before that.

This is good news though, now if that could only apply to the rest of the market as well.

Or if companies could at least patch it away in titles that are a couple of years old, so there would be less misery involved when playing my older titles.

And so they damn well should!
Witcher 3 was a definite no-no for me when they first announced that they meant to go ahead with this sort of nonsense!
Still worried about their becoming too cosy with the Steam lot, though.

As long as they continue their stance of no DRM and 100% free DLC, they will continue to be my favorite developer in terms of principles.

EA/Dice and Atari/Epic both remove or have done DRM from older games, EA integrated a no-cd into the final BF2 patch, and Epic into UT3 and I think UT2K4.
