An Abraham Lincoln this week gets you a copy of Dragon Age Origins Ulitmate Edition at GOG in their new Weekly sale. A $30 game for the price of a Starbucks coffee if you're lucky. It doesn't stop at Dragon Age though as dozens of EA classics such as Crysis, Dead Space, Mirror's Edge, and the aforementioned Darkspawn slasher are at or making new historic low price points.
Several dozen games are on sale with most being published by EA. After wading through the chaff we've listed below our top picks. All are priced at or below what you would normally find during a Winter or Summer seasonal PC gaming sale. If you don't particular care for Origin and have always wanted to try some of these earlier EA titles (they are on Steam too but haven't been discounted as much), this is a good time to pick them up for cheap.

If you're unfamiliar with GOG (previously known as Good Old Games) their claim to fame is that everything they sell is DRM-Free. If you're a believer in not dealing with extraenous software just to play the game you own, this has proven to resonate with many as the platform has continued to shine in recent years.
