Warner Bros has Interactive has become the latest to pen a deal with GOG, bringing some of its back catalogue to the DRM-free service. Bastion, Lego Batman, both Lego Harry Potter titles, the Mortal Kombat Trilogy and F.E.A.R. lead the charge, with all but one of them available for discounted prices.

This initial line-up represents just the beginning of Warner Bros partnership with GOG.com, with many more titles expected to arrive soon. "We are very happy to see another of the gaming's juggernauts venture into the DRM-free waters with us." said Oleg Klapovsky, GOG.com's VP of business development and operations. "Together with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, we are planning on more exciting releases, so stay tuned!"

All but the Mortal Kombat 1-3 Bundle are currently on offer. Lego Batman and F.E.A.R. plus both its expansion are available half price, while Bastion, Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4 and Years 5-7 have seen prices slashed 60%.

There’s a bunch more Warner Bros titles we’d love to see on GOG, although we think we’re getting our hopes a little high thinking Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor could come any time soon. It’d be great to see the Arkham games crop up but we're not holding our breath just yet. 

Will you be picking any of these titles up? Has GOG.com built up enough of a back catalogue to make it a viable alternative to Steam yet?

I see no reason to search for an alternative to Steam in the first place.

Aside from all the old titles which are not available to steam, the games are DRM-free, which means that you don't have to install any other program in order to run them.

I checked on GOG,and they don't have that big of a selection of old games.I personaly like to get my games from many sources,combining steam,origin,and ordering retail versions,not just limit myself to one platform,in this case GOG or Steam.None of these platforms is perfect,so that's why i wouldn't set anything as an alternative,but rather an addition when i need it.

I think my head is going to explode if I have to look at that Advanced Warfare trailer thing again. No, it's not a viable alternative to steam. Steam's grown too large now, and it keeps growing. Alternative IMO will never happen.

Steam still has too large a client base to be outdone by GOG

GOG isnt about building a client base like steam. They offer games DRM free. Soon they will have their online play out of beta but thats it.
