Just in case there wasn't already enough new games on offer this holiday season, online retailer GOG.com have announced some their holiday season sales, reminding us that there's a whole heap of older games still worth emptying your wallets for, as well as a seriously good deal on The Witcher 2.
GOG.com will start their holiday sales and get in the holiday spirit by putting together an incredible package deal on the Witcher franchise of games on GOG.com. From 8 December 2011 at 12:00 GMT until 10 December 2011 at 11:58 GMT, visitors to GOG.com will be able to pick up The Witcher 2 for just $23.99 and they will get The Witcher: Enhanced Edition for free! This is the best price that GOG.com will have on the Witcher franchise for the whole season, so be sure to pick them up then if you’ve been looking for a chance to play these classic games.
Then, because the holidays are about giving, GOG.com will be giving away hundreds of game codes for a variety of PC classic titles on both Saturday (the 10th of December) and Sunday (the 11th) through social media channels and on their website.
Finally, they continue in the giving spirit and, starting on the 12th of December at 12:00 GMT, GOG.com will be having a 48 hour giveaway of Empire Earth: Gold Edition where anyone can add it to their account for free! Furthermore, GOG.com starts their holiday sales on the 12th, and will be having their “50% Off Holiday Celebration” of virtually every game in the catalog from then until the 2nd of January 2012. Classic games from some of the greatest publishers and developers in the industry, like Interplay, EA, Ubisoft, Atari, Activision, Sierra, and others are all on sale on GOG.com.
GOG's continued support of DRM-free distribution and absence of regional price discrimination means we can't help unashamedly spruiking their good deals, so check out this press release
for all the goods.

edit: Though that being said, I haven't had my cd rom plugged in for yonks, and probably never will again, like the slow eventual death of my a:\.

At least in GOG's case it sounds like once you install the game you can forget about them until you reformat.
