False advertising?
"adapted to run on modern computers" line is not true - the game isn't adapted to run on modern computers, it uses DosBox, an emulator.

So, there is nothing wrong with DosBox.

Yup, DosBox is fine, but I don't think I'd pick'em up if I knew it has DosBox in it because I could pick them on GOG just as well. The line is a plain old lie and should be removed from the description.

So it is. I'd rather have a version with... *checks Duke Nukem 1+2 page* well, a soundtrack.

People that don't bother with capital letters are not the ones to decide who deserves what.

DosBox is an emulator, yes, but if you think about adaptors and what they do it could be said to be a "DOS-to-Windows Adaptor".
Just sayin'.

In the end I don't think it really matters whether or not you get it from GOG or Steam, as long as you have it- right? Bonuses are nice but hardly the point of what you want the GAME for. :)

Not even nearly the same thing.

Well I do.
