GOG has just now launched a brand new sale, and it's a little bit more interesting than the usual fare. Instead of simply choosing a list of seemingly random games, GOG has gone through everyone's wishlists and selected the 150 most popular games for the sale.

Unsurprisingly given the platform, the #1 spot on the list belongs to none other than The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Game of the Year Edition. The second and third place 'winners' further reinforce the idea that GOG's costumers have quite the penchant for story-focused RPGs as the games in question are the legendary Planescape: Torment and the highly enjoyable Baldur's Gate 2: Enhanced Edition. As far as discounts are concerned, however, you can grab The Witcher 3 at 60% off, while Planescape: Torment and Baldur's Gate 2 are discounted by 67% and 75% respectively.

If you're interested in my option on what to grab, I think I'll have to side with the majority here and go with The Witcher 3. It's not only an excellent game in its own right, but the combined playtime you'll get out of the base game and it's two expansions numbers in the hundreds of hours, so as far as "bang for your buck" is concerned there are very few RPGs that compare. It's also one of the best open-world games I've played in quite a few years, so if you're even remotely interested I would fully recommend you give The Witcher 3 a go.

As for the sale itself, the "Most Wanted Games Sales" will last until 10 PM UTC on April 23rd, which should give you plenty of time to consider your options. Have fun!
