GOG, everyone's favorite land for old or forgotten games that you can't buy anywhere else except eBay, is offering a 66% off sale on their Activision catalog(affiliate link) in what they are calling the "Activision Weekend Promo."


Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines the 2004 action role-playing video game is, according to the guys at GOG, "the best RPG of all time." The game has been praised for its stellar writing, atmospheric missions, and unforgettable NPCs. In the game, the players take control of either a male or female fledgling vampire in their journey through 21st-century Los Angeles to uncover the truth behind a recently discovered relic that heralds the end of all vampires.

Next up we have Sierra Games's point'n'click series, King's Quest, which is widely considered a classic from the golden era of adventure games. The whole series is on offer during the sale, and is split up in packs: 1,2 and 3 in one pack, 4,5 and 6 in another, 7 and 8 in the last. The series follows the saga of the royal family of the Kingdom of Daventry through their various trials and adventures. The story takes place over two generations and across many lands as the player fights evil witches and wizards and other villains.

Gabriel Knight is also on offer! Yet another classic point-and-click game made by Sierra which focuses on the adventures of Gabriel Knight, a New Orleans author and bookstore owner who finds that his destiny is to become a Schattenjäger, or "Shadow Hunter". Along with King's Quest, Gabriel Knight is also considered a classic of the golden era of adventure games.
