Hot damn, you guys. Hot damn. Good Old Games — GOG.com — is now selling old Activision games for six bucks a pop. And you know what Activision owns? All the old Sierra games.

While the ink’s likely still drying on the legal paperwork, GOG.com is already offering up Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura alongside Sierra classic Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers with additional games to be rolled out “gradually in the coming weeks.”

Here’s more from GOG.com’s forum:

“In a landmark deal for the DRM-free digital distribution movement, Activision Publishing Inc. is bringing a wide range of classic games to GOG.com!

It’s now official, we’re bringing you the biggest announcement in GOG.com’s history – Activision with it’s wealth of PC gaming gems has joined our DRM-free family. With the announcement we’re revealing first two classics which should be instantly recognizable to any fan of good, old games: Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura and Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers. Other games from the Activision catalogue will be unveiled gradually in the coming weeks, so expect more from this publisher during Month of Activision on GOG.com!”

That’s some nice work, there. Can’t wait to see which other games get offered up for sale. The DRM-free bit is icing on the cake, too.
