GOG Galaxy is an alternative application to the more popular Steam, Origin, and Uplay solutions, that provides users a way to buy and launch games from a DRM-free game-distribution platform. By bringing together games and friends, GOG Galaxy created an enjoyable competing environment for all gaming enthusiasts.
Visually, the application looks fresh, modern and has neatly crafted buttons and menus. It's also very easy to navigate through the menu and the response to user actions is quite impressive. There are lots of interface customizations, as well as many advanced configuration settings. However, at times, the CPU usage is too high.
The features it offers are numerous and include the option to import games from PC and consoles and organize them into one huge collection. Users are also able to monitor their in-game stats and achievements across all platforms. Furthermore, you can save your customizations and apply them when logging to a different device, restore games to prior versions, or simply remove imported data from GOG servers.
To summarize, GOG Galaxy is a cool gaming app that unites games and communication tools in a single environment. The only noticeable con was the slow loading of the main menu.
