I have an old email address that got compromised years ago and subsequently deleted by google. All my gaming accounts were tied to that email and I thought I’d changed them all to a new one. Then I tried to log in to GOG and apparently I haven’t done that in years. They want me to confirm my identity by clicking the link sent to the dead email. Yay!
Admittedly, I could re-enable that email if I knew the password to an AOL account so old it doesn’t have password recovery. And I do remember leaving AOL because it kept deleting emails it considered spam, which by the end was almost all of them…
So there go all my retro games.
I considered contacting GOG support but, I wouldn’t believe my story.
On a more positive note, I’m replaying Dragon Age. With more mods than should be allowed and it’s made for some amusing surprises.
Like Bann Teagan’s impeccable sense of dress.
I had a save with half the Redcliffe militia fending off undead naked. Removed a mod, they got dressed again but Teagan didn’t.
