GOG GALAXY vs Playnite opinions
good alternative, just no emulation support afaik. naysayers' opinions are outdated, but were valid at the time
As one of the Guests said, the GOG 2.0 Beta is already out and unifies many of the game libraries, having potential to even add unknown ones.
GOG Galaxy's integrations are often abandoned or outdated, and lack the robust QA that Playnite's add-ons have. Despite both being community sourced, Playnite's community just has genuinely better integrations for other libraries, custom themes, and is leagues ahead of GoG in terms of metadata gathering.
I think the layout for how the games are displayed is inferior to that of playnite, as well as being less personalized with themes. Otherwise it's a good game center, but still needs to add more launcher support, like Arc Games, among others.
