Quick Guide | How to Activate a CD Key on GOG.com

gogtutorial

GOG.com (Good Old Games), created by the Polish publisher CD Projekt, is a digital distribution platform and video game activation website similar to Steam and Origin. The only difference is GOG.com is DRM-free. DRM or Digital Rights Management is a type of copy protection technology used by many companies to limit the usage of digital media.
