GOG, for­mer­ly known as Good Old Games, issued a state­ment regard­ing their refund pol­i­cy and its a doozy. The site, which is owned by CD Pro­jekt Red, will be giv­ing full refunds back up to 30 days after pur­chase. That’s not so sur­pris­ing, but there’s more.

You can still get the refund even if down­loaded, launched and played the game. This is unprece­dent­ed in the gam­ing indus­try, for obvi­ous rea­sons. How­ev­er, GOG did state they will be “mon­i­tor­ing the effects” of this pol­i­cy update, mak­ing sure no one is abus­ing the sys­tem.

GOG Has Updated Their Refund Policy

They also gave infor­ma­tion regard­ing refund on DLC, game packs, pre-orders, Games In Devel­op­ment and more in their FAQ arti­cle. With­in this same arti­cle, GOG gave a state­ment about how many games can be refund­ed:

We trust that you’re mak­ing informed pur­chas­ing deci­sions and will use this updat­ed vol­un­tary Refund Pol­i­cy only if some­thing does­n’t work as you expect­ed.

This is why there are no lim­its but instead, we reserve the right to refuse refunds in indi­vid­ual cas­es.

Please respect all the time and hard work put into mak­ing the games you play and remem­ber that refunds are not reviews. If you fin­ished the game and did­n’t like it, please con­sid­er shar­ing your opin­ion instead. Also, please don’t take advan­tage of our trust by ask­ing for an unrea­son­able amount of games to be refund­ed. Don’t be that per­son. No one likes that per­son.


Only time will tell if this pol­i­cy will remain, since it’ll like­ly be abused by some peo­ple. Hope­ful­ly, play­ers can resist the urge to do wrong, to keep this gen­er­ous pol­i­cy around.
