MeTrics

This page was inspired by — and is dedicated to — JMich, who has developed and manually maintains a subset of similar GOG metrics and statistics, used to prove to doubting members that GOG still releases good old games.
The metrics in the tables below are updated automatically every time MaGog's database is updated (i.e. every six hours).
If there are additional metrics and statistics you would like to see, please drop me a note here.
