At least if GOG goes down they can let us know and I can just download all my games and store them on an external hard drive or some such thing.
Well, I tend to think that good games will find a way to remain available. I mean we play games on GOG now that were released on floppies although few of us probably have one of those drives still in our computer (and fewer still actually use it). Some will be lost for sure, but those that really have fans will resuface as abandonware projects or on GOG like services.
