GOG midweek sale: “Games deeply rooted in pop culture”

GOG’s new midweek sale provides a glimpse into pop culture phenomena.

The era of games being only for computer geeks or others who’d prefer the digital to the social world is long past. While something has certainly been lost along the way, it’s clear that gaming has become part of pop culture, as GOG’s recent promo sale includes all sorts of must-play titles.

The following list isn’t complete, but it should give a good overview of games that are still talked about today:

Being an avid gamer, cinemaniac, and bookworm in addition to other things the internet and new media present, I'm also very much into DIY music, rock and pop in particular. Writing short or longer pieces about anything that interests me has always made me happy. As both an editor for German website "Adventure-Treff" and UK website "Future Sack", I like to write reviews and news about recent developments in the movies, games and book industry.
