Awesome Adventures

Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: This remains my favorite adventure game of all time for good reason: it's extremely well-written, the characters are excellent, the story's engrossing, and the game design is very clever. Very, VERY highly recommended.

Gabriel Knight 2: The Beast Within

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: One of the few FMV games out there that's a blast to play. The characters we know and love are back and well-played, the story's phenomenal, and the game design remains clever.

Gabriel Knight 3: Blood of the Sacred...

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: While it retains the excellent writing, characters, and storytelling that makes the Gabriel Knight series phenomenal, GK3 suffers from typical early 3D adventure game problems (controls, mostly). Still an excellent game nonetheless.

King's Quest 1+2+3

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: The King's Quest titles are really the games that got me into the adventure genre. Clever puzzles, a sense of wonder, and light-hearted writing make them well worth playing, especially if you like fairy tales.

King's Quest 4+5+6

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: King's Quest 5 and 6 are my personal favorites in the KQ series, though 4 is both interesting and excellent as well. All the high points of the previous titles are present here, and with improved visuals to boot.

Realms of the Haunting

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: Realms is an interesting title. It's an adventure game with FPS-like combat with a horror theme. It's also one of the few games where the FMV is rather good as well. Definitely worth looking into.

Space Quest 1+2+3

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: The Space Quest series is one of the silliest adventure game series of all time. It's a sci-fi spoof doesn't take itself remotely seriously and is a blast to play as a result. The first 3 are parser games, though 1 had a point-and-click VGA remake.

Space Quest 4+5+6

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: The wackiness continues in the latter three Space Quest games. These three are all point-and-click adventures, but are no less challenging than the previous three. You can never go wrong with more sci-fi spoofy goodness!

Beneath a Steel Sky

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: The fact that this is free only helps its cause. BASS is full of great humor, clever puzzles, excellent characters and acting, and more dystopian sci-fi goodness than you can shake a stick at. It's definitely a must-play for any adventure fan.

Tex Murphy: Mean Streets + Martian Me...

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: While the first two Tex Murphy games suffer from awkward controls and a somewhat clumsy interface, they're nonetheless excellent adventure games that are well worth playing if you have the patience to put up with their faults.

Tex Murphy: Under a Killing Moon

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: This is easily the best Tex Murphy game, and is definitely one of the best adventure games of all time. Clever, witty humor mixed with a sci-fi noir design, excellent writing, and some of the best FMV sequences ever shot make this one a must-play.

Tex Murphy: The Pandora Directive

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: Following Under a Killing Moon is a hard thing to do, but The Pandora Directive delivers more of that Tex Murphy goodness nonetheless. Definitely a title well worth your time, especially if you like the previous Tex Murphy games.

Teenagent

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: Well, it's free, so what do you have to lose? Aside from that, it's a well-written (though the English translation is a bit wonky) Polish adventure game with great humor and a few clever puzzles. A bit short though. Still worth playing regardless.

Broken Sword: Director's Cut

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: The first Broken Sword game is a clever, mysterious tale of conspiracy mixed with memorable characters and challenging puzzles. Don't play the Director's Cut part of this, though, since it messes with the storytelling and makes the game too easy.

Broken Sword 2: Remastered

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: Broken Sword 2 was the last 2D game in the franchise, and it was an enjoyable, if sometimes confusing, game with a lot of heart (much like the original). That this comes with the Remastered version only adds more value.

Quest for Glory 1-5

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: This is easily one of my most highly-awaited releases on GoG, ever. The Quest for Glory series combines RPG and adventure into a phenomenal package exploring mythology and folklore. It's clever, funny, challenging, and ultimately, extremely fun.

Zork Anthology, The

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: If you haven't played Zork, you aren't an adventure gamer. I'm serious. This is where the adventure genre took flight in all its text-based glory. Who needs great graphics when these games are absolutely hilarious and have deviously clever puzzles?

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.
