Whiteblade999 says: A unique magic system and unmatched level of interactivity make this game more dynamic then the other RPGs on this list. The visuals are also made in a style that hides the age.

Baldur's Gate: The Original Saga

Whiteblade999's rating:
250

Whiteblade999 says: The game that resurrected the RPG genre. Character interaction is the draw of this. Combine with the sequel using a mod for best effect.

Baldur's Gate 2 Complete

Whiteblade999's rating:
250

Whiteblade999 says: The magnum opus of RPGs. It mixes everything that a good RPG should have and turns it up to 11. Combine with the original using a mod for an epic saga. Bioware has been trying for years to duplicate the success of this and they probably never will.

Gothic

Whiteblade999's rating:
250

Whiteblade999 says: An unforgiving game that makes you work for everything, even a map. The sense of character progression is stunning. Downing the final boss is probably the most satisfying feeling I've ever had.

Planescape: Torment

Whiteblade999 says: This isn't a game, it is an experience. Not much else can be said other then buy the game and be prepared to read. In fact the majority of the game is reading.

Witcher: Enhanced Edition, The

Whiteblade999's rating: not rated yet
250

Whiteblade999 says: The game doesn't pull any punches and expects its audience to be mature. Nice time-based combat helps keep the game interesting as Geralt tries to figure out who he is.

Witcher 2: Assassins Of Kings, The

Whiteblade999's rating:
250

Whiteblade999 says: Takes the concepts of the original and improves upon them in every possible way. The combat is better, the story is more 'epic', and the subject matters are even more more risque.

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.
