30 minutes, a cup of coffee, and a netbook

GOGmix by doctorfrog's avatardoctorfrog 39votes

Master of Orion 1+2

doctorfrog's rating:
250

doctorfrog says: This duo of sci-fi strategy titles manage a complexity and elegance that makes play over several coffee breaks not only possible, but equally agonizing and engrossing.

Heroes of Might and Magic® 3: Complete

doctorfrog's rating:
250

doctorfrog says: Gorgeous fantasy strategy title. Unlike other similar games, you can easily walk away from a HOMM game, then return without feeling lost. Be sure to get the HD patch that allows you to stretch the game to wonky netbook resolutions.

Jagged Alliance 2

doctorfrog's rating:
250

doctorfrog says: This may not be the best title for a short coffee break, but if you absolutely must have tactical battles with tiny men, it's hard to do better than JA2.

Caesar 3

doctorfrog's rating:
250

doctorfrog says: It isn't the best city manager around, but Caesar III runs great on a netbook, and has adjustable difficulty and speed, making it almost equally playable with a mouse or a touchpad.

Blood: One Unit Whole Blood

doctorfrog's rating:
250

doctorfrog says: Ordinarily, a FPS is a bad match with a cramped coffeehouse table, but the old 2.5D shooters could be played fairly well without a mouse. See also: Duke Nukem.

Beneath a Steel Sky

doctorfrog's rating:
250

doctorfrog says: It's a free, humorous adventure game with puzzles that aren't ridiculous. A fine example of LucasArts-style adventure, and not terribly long.

Duke Nukem 3D Atomic Edition

doctorfrog's rating:
250

doctorfrog says: It goes almost without saying that Duke Nukem has a home on any FPS-fan's hard drive. Like Blood, DN3D can be competently played with just a keyboard if there isn't room for a mouse to go flailing about.

Pro Pinball Big Race USA

doctorfrog's rating:
250

doctorfrog says: Nothing's quicker than a game of pinball. In spite of the complexity and realism of this fantastic pinball simulator, it runs just fine on most netbooks.

Pro Pinball Fantastic Journey

doctorfrog's rating:

doctorfrog says: Nothing's quicker than a game of pinball. In spite of the complexity and realism of this fantastic pinball simulator, it runs just fine on most netbooks.

Pro Pinball Timeshock

Patrician 3

doctorfrog's rating:
250

doctorfrog says: It happens to be a bit complex, but get deep enough into it, and P3 will run just fine on a netbook, if business management is your game.

SimCity™ 2000 Special Edition

doctorfrog's rating:
250

doctorfrog says: The undisputed classic is still a charming and simple game, and is a better waste of your time than any "social" game that imitates its formula.

removeupdown

Star Control 1+2

doctorfrog's rating:
250

doctorfrog says: Star Control II can be had for free under the title "The Ur-Quan Masters." The base game is too involving for a coffee break, but the Super Melee mini game is perfect for some quick star battles.

Treat your GOGmix as your child - name it! ;)

Coming up with a cool and descriptive title should be your first priority. Being original is in your best interest - bet you wanna get lots of nice votes, right? Go all crazy if you want, but be sure to keep it civil!

So, what are the ingredients?

Pick a game that belongs in your GOGmix from the list, or find it by typing something in the text field. Relevance is key here - Earthworm Jim doesn't quite fit the "Sexiest heroines of all time" bill now, does it?

Justify your choice... Or not!

OK, so it's not required, but now that you went through the trouble of adding a game, telling everyone why you did it would be a nice finishing touch. After you're done here, add another game, rinse, repeat.
