A few games that defined my childhood

GOGmix by TheBozz's avatarTheBozz 1vote

Thief™ Gold

TheBozz's rating:
250

TheBozz says: It's not often you say a game forged you into who you are. Thief did it for me: it showed me the rewards of patience and perseverance. It made me crave a challenge and push myself as hard as I can. I still play it again from time to time.

Crusader: No Remorse™

TheBozz's rating:
250

TheBozz says: My dad brought me this game from a trip. The Silencer looked like a robot, and I liked robots. Back then I couldn't play it properly, I was too young for it. I've started playing it and its sequel again, and now I really appreciate them.

Unreal Gold

TheBozz's rating:
250

TheBozz says: This is another of those life-defining games. Since Quake II I knew there was a modding scene. It wasn't until I got Unreal that I got to feel the power of bending the game to my will. That was the moment I decided to learn how to program.

Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver

TheBozz's rating:
250

TheBozz says: This was one of the first games, along with Thief, that really caught me in their worlds. I loved the setup and the story. I'm still waiting for someone to finish the story of the Legacy of Kain.

Broken Sword: Director's Cut

TheBozz's rating:
250

TheBozz says: This game was the one who introduced me to point-and-click adventures. After it I got hold of such classics as Full Throttle and Day Of The Tentacle. A side bonus: it got the rest of my family into gaming. Just one thing: skip the remake, it's awful.

Duke Nukem 3D Atomic Edition

TheBozz's rating:
250

TheBozz says: Oh man. So many memories. I used to play this with my cousins. I downloaded tons of maps for it on my 56K connection. It had boobies. Gloriously pixellated boobies. It also taught me to swear (it's a miracle that my parents never caught that).

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.
