FMV games

GOGmix by jennfrank's avatarjennfrank 6votes

Phantasmagoria 2

jennfrank's rating:
250

jennfrank says: Full-motion video games get a bad rap, and Phantasmagoria 2 really works for its schlocky reputation. It's awful. It's sick. It's fun! It has all the appeal of a late-nite creature feature, and if that's your bag, don't miss out on this clunker.

Tex Murphy: Under a Killing Moon

jennfrank's rating:
250

jennfrank says: In this deliberately cheesy cyber-noir, FMV can be a curse (you can really hear the actors echoing on the blue-screen soundstage). Like GK2, though, the cinematics are innovatively implemented, taking a backseat to point-and-click exploration.

Gabriel Knight 2: The Beast Within

jennfrank's rating:
250

jennfrank says: The original Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers is the better game (YMMV), but GK2 has earned its rep as the singular elegant use of FMV in interactive fiction, mishmashed here with digitized actors and gorgeous photos of Actual Germany.

Riven: The Sequel to Myst

jennfrank's rating:
250

jennfrank says: Even Myst's most ardent fans complained the game was too lonely, too isolated. So for its sequel, the Miller brothers worked digitized actors into gorgeous rendered settings. The effect was imperfect, but Riven itself was a worthwhile adventure.

Phantasmagoria

jennfrank's rating:
250

jennfrank says: King's Quest designer Roberta Williams's riff on Amnityville won't win any awards for originality, and it isn't better than 7th Guest, but there's something unmistakably appealing about this tale of supernatural domestic abuse.

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.
