As beautiful as the day we met - modern/remade engines

GOGmix by domgrief's avatardomgrief 9votes

Freespace 2

domgrief's rating:
250

domgrief says: The astonishing work of the guys at the Freespace 2 Source Code Project (SCP via http://www.fsoinstaller.com/) has turned a 10-year-old-game into one of the greatest looking space sims of all time. This must be seen to be believed.

Freespace + Expansion

domgrief's rating:
250

domgrief says: If you've got Freespace 2, you can even convert the Freespace 1 missions to play as part of the SCP.

Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition

domgrief's rating:
250

domgrief says: Adding eDuke32's Polymer engine (eduke32.com) brings Duke into the 2000's and makes it accessible - and good-looking - for anyone who's played an FPS.

Far Cry®

domgrief's rating:
250

domgrief says: This was one of the most advanced games in its time, and was built to last, so it still looks great today without any updates.

Evil Genius

domgrief's rating:
250

domgrief says: An elegant but simple approach to the characters and graphics in this game means that this still looks good at higher resolutions.

Freedom Force vs. the 3rd Reich

domgrief's rating:
250

domgrief says: Like Evil Genius, the simple, colourful graphics mean it scales well and looks fun even on a modern computer.

Descent + Descent 2

domgrief's rating:
250

domgrief says: Though they haven't received quite the same level of attention as Freespace, Descent 1 and 2 look and feel much more playable after adding D2X-XL (http://www.descent2.de/).

Witcher: Enhanced Edition, The

domgrief's rating: not rated yet
250

domgrief says: This is still a recent game, and it had great graphics for its time.

Witcher 2: Assassins Of Kings, The

domgrief's rating: not rated yet
250

domgrief says: It's not hard to look like this year's game when you *are* this year's game!

King's Bounty: The Legend

domgrief's rating:
250

domgrief says: A fairly recent game, but a well-designed one with a wealth of graphic options to keep it looking nice a few years later. Modern look and feel is let down only by its old-school inconsistent difficulty.

Neverwinter Nights: Diamond Edition

domgrief's rating:
250

domgrief says: NWN is rivaled only by Diablo II for long-term support by its developers - it scales well to modern systems and somehow comes out feeling more playable than its sequel.

Pro Pinball Timeshock

domgrief's rating:
250

domgrief says: The Pro Pinball series is fascinating, given that they were released in the era of Windows 95. The developer's decision to avoid 3D scrolling and tilting tables and focus on a high resolution means that the games still look beautiful today.

Unreal Tournament 2004 ECE

domgrief's rating:
250

domgrief says: The Unreal 2 engine is probably one of the most scalable and robust 3D engines of all time. A focus on colour and scalability means that this game feels just as vibrant and exciting today as it did 7 years ago.

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.
