Whenever I see the words "Huge sale" and "EA" in the same sentence, I chuckle a bit.
Still, I'll be sure to check this out.

I grabbed Theme Hospital.

Heard it was good, and gets a lot of high ratings on the site. How much of it is just nostalgia, I dunno.

TH is awesome. Nostalgia? Maybe. But some games are timeless and I consider Theme Hospital to be one of those. It's still great fun even today. It's perhaps one of the most fun simulations I've played; the other being Acclaim's Constructor.

Btw, I really recommend checking out and keeping an eye on the corsix-th project. It's an open source reimplementation of the Theme Hospital engine (which requires you have the actual game installed) and it modernizes the experience by adding native support for higher/widescreen resolutions. The GOG version runs in DOSBox (a DOS emulator) but it's still limited to 640x480 resolution and has a few other issues.

Any TH fan will appreciate the work the corsix project is attempting.

Dynamite - I'll have to remember to check that occasionally.

Constructor sounds good too (like a cross between Sim City Classic and that Supervillain game where you build your secret hideouts and stuff).

Why GOG does run some good deals occasionally, for some reasons their games don't work on my machine. :/
