Almost Classic RPGs

GOGmix by gully_dwarf's avatargully_dwarf 1vote

Vampire The Masquerade - Redemption

gully_dwarf's rating:
250

gully_dwarf says: The setting is a rich one that never really caught on in mainstream table-top RPGs, and the transition to CRPG was plagued by control issues and a translation of the rules set that annoyed the table-top fan base. Highly recommended.

Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obs...

gully_dwarf's rating:
250

gully_dwarf says: Troika's first outing, Arcanum is like a blend of Fallout and Baldurs Gate. Unfortunately, it was plagued by glitches, bugs, a bad interface, and serious game imbalances in favor of magic. Still, the main plot has great twists, and is recommended.

Betrayal at Krondor Pack

gully_dwarf's rating:
250

gully_dwarf says: Don't fret, fans of Krondor - this is a talk about Antara. Betrayal in Antara is Krondor's simpler, shallower cousin. Often frustrating because the quests involve a LOT of wandering, Antara's voice acting is good, and the characters are likeable.

Neverwinter Nights: Diamond Edition

gully_dwarf's rating:
250

gully_dwarf says: Certainly, "almost classic" is a controversial label for Neverwinter Nights, yet hear me out. The original campaign was GARBAGE. Undrentide was a move in the right direction, but very short. Only when Underdark was released did NWN get good.

Nox™

gully_dwarf's rating:
250

gully_dwarf says: This fun little gem has always brought a smile to my face. I'm a sucker for the "normal guy from the REAL WORLD (TM) gets sucked into a fantasy realm" genre, and Nox tickles that itch while throwing a Diablo-esque experience. Play a Wizard.

Sacred Gold

gully_dwarf's rating:
250

gully_dwarf says: The huge world map in Sacred is mind boggling. While, like Nox, it's more of an action RPG similar to Diablo, Sacred brings its own unique charm. Definitely worth a look, though for me, it was difficult to hold my interest for long.

Septerra Core: Legacy of the Creator

gully_dwarf's rating:
250

gully_dwarf says: Created by Western developers, Septerra Core is modeled after JRPGs. It has a decent story and likeable characters - but combat is exceptionally tedious and character customization is lacking (both appearance and rules set wise). Its worth a look.

Temple of Elemental Evil, The

gully_dwarf's rating:
250

gully_dwarf says: It's not everyone's cup of tea - it's an almost exact translation of the D&D 3.5 rules set. It's turn-based. It has severe level restrictions. Wandering outside areas appropriate for your level will get you killed. But I love it. Clerics for the win.

Two Worlds

gully_dwarf's rating:
250

gully_dwarf says: Hilariously bad dialogue combined with a quirky rules system and a mishmash of Diablo and Oblivion spawns a surprisingly awesome game. Obviously, others might not like it as much as I do, but it is worth a look, and Two Worlds might surprise you.

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.
