GOG is the store that offers DRM-free games so you might want to check the Lantern Festival Sale if there is a favourite title you would like to pick up with no DRM attached. Some of the highlights are The Witcher 3 and Dragon Age: Origins.

Due to the nature of this article, we need to put up a disclaimer first - this is not a sponsored article. We simply spotted a few good deals on GOG's sale that celebrates Year of the Pig and decided to highlight them for players who potentially missed out, especially because this is an opportunity to get these games free of DRM.

Back to the actual topic, the GOG Lantern Festival Sale. The main course here is, naturally, The Witcher 3 GOTY Edition which nets you the base game, Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine at a 70 per cent discount, which brings the price to grand total of $14,99. The Witcher 3 has been universally praised for a reason and it is worth every penny out of your wallet and every second of the time played.

Another highlight for RPG fans is Dragon Age: Origins. It is the only Dragon Age game where BioWare didn't implement the dialogue wheel that eventually crippled the immersion elements in the sequels. Players are presented with meaningful choices throughout the game and combat is designed to be played from multiple aspects - either try your luck with attempting to emulate an action RPG by just controlling your own character or try to micromanage the entire party by using real-time combat with pause.

Dragon Age: Origins' graphics may not have aged that well, but the game is definitely not hard on the eyes. It is regarded as the best entry in Dragon Age series and its Ultimate Edition that includes all DLC is discounted by 75 per cent, down to $4,99.

BioShock and BioShock 2 are both discounted to $6,59 and both games are the Remastered versions, so the Steampunk underwater adventures should look pretty enough to play through the gripping story that unveils in Rapture.

Those looking to relive some of the good times they had back in late 90s and early 2000s with Heroes of Might and Magic 3 can snatch the complete edition for $3,39. The game is a gem of the old times and a DRM-free copy may hold enough sentimental value to make up for all the time fans will spend with it. Then again, the time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time, right?
