Good Old Games, the new games service from CD Projekt (The Witcher), is now in beta and Blend Games was fortunate enough to get an invite. As you may know, GOG sells classic games from the nineties for six to ten bucks with no copy protection - but which games?

No word on when GOG will be open to the general public. However, for your edification, here's a list of the games GOG currently offers along with their prices. As noted on the list, a couple of the games aren't available yet but will be soon.

The nice thing is that when you buy these games and download them, you actually own them. You can install/reinstall them as many times as you want and you won't need an Internet connection while playing them. All of the games are compatible with Windows XP and Vista and you'll get extras with each purchase. For example, Redneck Rampage comes with a manual (presumably in PDF) and the game's full soundtrack in MP3's.

From the looks of things, the publisher roster for GOG is limited to Interplay and Codemasters currently. CD Projekt told gamesindustry.biz last week that some publishers are still scared to go DRM-free. We'll see if those companies overcome their fears in the future, especially with all of the backlash EA experienced over Spore's copy-protection. GOG would be a great home for all of LucasArts' old adventure games.
