Fallout 1 + 2 & Tactics (PC/Mac) - FREE

For another day Gog.com is offering PC/Mac editions of Fallout 1, Fallout 2, and Fallout Tactics FREE, this is likely the last chance people will have to download these digital restriction management (DRM) free (direct download - no background software, serial codes, or hassle) since the license is changing hands in 2014. GOG requires a site account, which is easy to create and they have good deals on classic desktop games.

Really? You need to play through 1 and 2.
Tactics, not as much.
1 and 2 are about as good as games get.

When you say that "the license is changing hands in 2014", do you think that means that once this license has changed hands, we will no longer be able to download these from GOG, even if we've bought them there?
Or do you think that if we purchase these today that we'll still be able to download them in a few years time?

This is incredible! You get so much for free. Soundtrack, Fallout bible, wallpaper, avatars, etc. and for each game too.

GOG has assured users that Fallout 1, 2, and Tactics will remain available for download indefinitely for people who purchased (or here acquired as freebie) indefinitely. There's a possibility that as software/hardware advances Fallout(s) will require additional patches to work, and GOG won't support with further refinement to guarantee future proof of the downloads but with classics like this there will probably be community patches.

There's no reason not to get the trilogy on GOG, since they're all free. Even if you duplicate from Steam, having DRM free editions is nice.
