In the era of corporate greed in gaming industry, CD Projekt Red doesn't stop with surprises, and GOG's 10th anniversary is one of them. Anyone with a GOG account can go to the store and vote for a game, after which they will get one free.

CD Projekt Red's birthday celebration might as well be called the opposite day as it's normally the celebrated person or entity that receives gift, but in the case of GOG's 10 year anniversary, it is those guests who come to the party that walk away with gifts.

For example, anyone who has a GOG account can go to the website and simply cast a vote for their favourite game between Shadow Warrior 2, Superhot and Firewatch. The voting process will last for another two days from the moment of writing this article and when it concludes, the game with the most votes will be up for grabs.

It may not be your favourite out of the three but it will be the one that most people voted for. The best part is that the game will be DRM-free, just like any other game on GOG, so once it's in your library, it will be yours for good. There will not be any soundtrack cut out of the game in the years to come due to a celebrity push, future OS updates have less chance to make your game incompatible and no one will have the right to simply take the game out of your library.

If the three games above are not your cup of tea, there is also an anniversary sale going on at GOG, featuring deals such as 60 per cent off on The Witcher 3 GOTY or a 25$ bundle that includes Kingdom Come: Deliverance, Battle Chasers: Nightwar and Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun.

According to the official post, CD Projekt Red now have a better understanding of what works, what players and what they should do in the future thanks to feedback and looking back at their past. On top of the sales and giveaways, there will also be a new interface on GOG as another celebration marker.
