Best Played with Mouse in One Hand, Beer in the Other

GOGmix by bpops's avatarbpops 1504votes

Myst: Masterpiece Edition

bpops's rating:
250

bpops says: Quite simply the best type of gameplay with one hand. Beer helps with the immersion into this wonderful world. Recommended: any islander beer (e.g. Red Stripe, Fire Rock Pale Ale,...)

Riven: The Sequel to Myst

bpops's rating:
250

bpops says: Continuing with the Myst franchise is Riven. Note: you may need to occasionally put down your mouse (but NEVER, EVER your beer) to write some notes. Recommended: stouts (e.g. Guinness)

Baldur's Gate: The Original Saga

bpops's rating:
250

bpops says: The only keyboard stroke that I ever found particularly useful was the spacebar for pausing the game during combat. However, clicking the clock button with your cursor will do the job just fine. Recommended: Mead (from a wooden tankard if available)

Baldur's Gate 2 Complete

bpops's rating:
250

bpops says: Like it's predecessor, BG II represents some of the finest PC gaming, period -- but it also requires minimal use of the keyboard, and can be played especially well with a beer in one hand. Recommended: Dos Equis.

Longest Journey, The

bpops's rating:
250

bpops says: Another incredible, immersive world that leaves one hand free to hold your fermented vegetable drink. Visit two amazing juxtaposed worlds as April Ryan. Recommended: any hybrid beer (e.g. smoked beers, fruit beers, ...)

Legend of Grimrock

bpops's rating: not rated yet
250

bpops says: With optional mouse-only input, this classic-style modern dungeon crawl is perfect for knocking back a few cold ones. Recommended: Rolling Rock.

Syberia

bpops's rating:
250

bpops says: Do you like trains? Woolly mammoths? Robots? ...beer? The original atmosphere will draw you in and provide 3/4 of these awesome things. You provide the last. Recommended: Ice-cold beer straight out of an ice chest (or snow if available).

Syberia 2

bpops's rating:
250

bpops says: If you're still playing Syberia at this point, you've probably gotten frostbite. Yes, I think you're looking a little whiter than normal. And you're missing fingers. Recommended: Pale Ale.

RollerCoaster Tycoon: Deluxe

bpops's rating:
250

bpops says: This brilliant game is as fun as it is easy to play with one hand. I'm not a huge simulation/tycoon fan, but this one is a blast. Recommended: any beer you like, just don't spot the desk -- please use a coaster!

RollerCoaster Tycoon 2: Triple Thrill...

bpops's rating: not rated yet
250

bpops says: Even more fantastic theme park goodness from Chris Sawyer. Roller Coaster Tycoon TWO. TRIPLE thrill pack. Hmmm... 2 x 3 = 6.... Recommended: Six pack!

Beneath a Steel Sky

bpops's rating:
250

bpops says: Settle into the dystopian future Australia, mate. This hilarious point+click is easy on the fingers, but sometimes tough on the brain. Recommended: Foster's. It's Australian for ... ahem ..

Planescape: Torment

bpops's rating: not rated yet
250

bpops says: Yet another Infinity engine classic that only requires mouse input. Recommended: Any ole plane bottled beer. Don't drink too much or you may not recall playing this wonderful game...

SimCity 2000™ Special Edition

bpops's rating: not rated yet
250

bpops says: This game was amazing in its time, and has yet to be bested in city-building goodness. Recommended: Any Simulated Beer (e.g. O'Douls)... nevermind. That's an awful idea.

Tales of Monkey Island

bpops's rating:
250

bpops says: Arguably one of TellTale's greatest reboots and franchises. This series is modern adventure gaming at its best. And still, only one hand required. Recommended: Rum. Arghhh, matey.

Neverwinter Nights: Diamond Edition

bpops's rating:
250

bpops says: A valiant, but flawed, effort to reboot the spirit of the Baldur's Gate games. No dual-handed controls required. Recommended: Go with wine -- Pinot Noir.

Torchlight

bpops's rating:
250

bpops says: This game is FANTASTIC. Hack & Slash & Loot at its finest. And only one hand is required, leaving your other to drink your beer of choice. Recommended: Any "light" beer: Coors Lite, Bud Lite, Miller Lite, ...

Stronghold HD

bpops's rating: not rated yet
250

bpops says: One of the most amazing strategy games I've ever played. Turtle up and hold out! .... with something rather STRONG in your other hand. Recommended: Whiskey.

Stronghold Crusader HD

bpops's rating: not rated yet
250

bpops says: More stronghold "amazingness." Since this is Crusader, wine is necessary, but spike it first ;) Recommended: Spike holy wine.

Papers, Please

bpops's rating: not rated yet
250

bpops says: While upgrades to your immigration booth might having you clicking the keyboard, it is entirely optional. Recommended: Vodka.

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.
