A Handful of the Greatest Games of Their Eras

GOGmix by whisperkit's avatarwhisperkit 4votes

Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri™

whisperkit's rating:
250

whisperkit says: There's a reason this game's acronym is SMAC(k). It's horrifyingly addictive. Think Civilisation, with diverse personalities, an emergent plot, an occasionally grim sense of humour and a wonderful sci-fi setting.

Psychonauts

whisperkit's rating:
250

whisperkit says: One of the greatest platforming adventure games, ever. The humour is hilarious, the characters weird & engaging, the concepts strange & fantastic. If Tim Burton had directed Inception as a Saturday morning cartoon, this would be it.

Painkiller Black Edition

whisperkit's rating:
250

whisperkit says: Serious Sam with really crazy guns and a GRIMMNDARK aesthetic that doesn't take itself too seriously.

Serious Sam: The First Encounter

whisperkit's rating:
250

whisperkit says: A love-letter to old-school FPS's of the past. Also some of the greatest use of sound in game design I've come across.

Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus

whisperkit's rating:
250

whisperkit says: Liked Oddysee? Have some more, but better. The worker interactions with the main character are a wonderful addition. Treat them poorly and they'll throw a tantrum, or get depressed. This adds a whole new puzzle element.

Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee

whisperkit's rating:
250

whisperkit says: One of the greatest, strangest and darkest platformers, ever. A true must-play.

Evil Genius

whisperkit's rating:
250

whisperkit says: Slow at times, but a true cult classic that slipped under many a radar (perhaps using nefarious technologies?). Dungeon Keeper with a 60s spy aesthetic, wonderful trap-customisation, upgradable henchmen.. Holds a special place in my gaming heart.

Unreal Tournament GOTY

whisperkit's rating:
250

whisperkit says: Not sure how many play this these days, but I would imagine there's still a fanbase for it. The greatest multiplayer shooter of it's period, with some wonderful mods included. Worth it even if you play with bots.

M.A.X. + M.A.X. 2

whisperkit's rating:
250

whisperkit says: Oft-overlooked, I remember M.A.X fondly for it's stunning depth, dark aesthetics (ohgod, the intro movie D: ) and the ability to play it turn-based or RTS with both performing extremely well. Can't speak on the sequel, buthey, free game?

Raptor: Call of the Shadows 2010 Edition

whisperkit's rating:
250

whisperkit says: Remember playing the shareware version to death, and never being able to find the actual game? Here it is. Similar to Tyrion, this was one of the best western scrolling shooters of it's time, with customisation galore and great levels.

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.
