Evergreen Games: Untarnished Visual Splendour3votes I like it
wiper says: Beautiful strategy games are few and far between. So for such a beautiful strategy game to have been made in '96... The Settlers II is a gorgeous, characterful strategy game with charm aplenty. Still the most beautiful strategy game I've ever played.
wiper says: Okay, this one's a bit of a cheat, as it has been updated to have shinier, higher resolution textures. But even without them, the game's striking aesthetic remains beautifully stark and haunting. Gorgeous.
wiper says: I could have put the fully 3D sequel here as well, but there's something special about the original - the simple yet gorgeous and eclectic characters, the beautiful pre-rendered backdrops - LBA remains one of the most beautiful games ever made.
wiper says: A rarity this - a 3D title which looks ready to stand the tests of time. Thanks to its glorious use of soft, yet vibrant colour, and cartoon stylings, this is a game that's staying beautiful. The sumptuous soundtrack helps too!
wiper says: A defunct, software-only graphical technique; a 3D game limited to 640 x 480. And yet the lush, alien world is so well-realised, voxel technology still uniquely capable at delivering undulating, curving landscapes, that it's still stunning.
wiper says: Released towards the end of the point and click adventure's heyday, this game may not be as lively or imaginative aesthetically as the later Lucasarts adventures, but its crisp, fluidly animated characters and backdrops haven't aged a day.
wiper says: Colourful, surreal and wonderfully animated - they may belong to a genre now long-dead, but the absurd characters in these games are still full of life.
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.
