FMV games (Live Action not CG!)

GOGmix by cioran's avatarcioran 7votes

Tex Murphy: Under a Killing Moon

cioran's rating:
250

cioran says: FMV gets a bad rap, but Tex Murphy games are among the finest FMV has to offer. IMO, best, in series.

Tex Murphy: The Pandora Directive

cioran's rating:
250

cioran says: Ditto the above. Many consider this the best of the FMV Tex Murphy games. I prefer the first, matter of preference. In any event, wonderful game.

Tex Murphy: Overseer

cioran's rating:
250

cioran says: Ditto. Great FMV game, but fair warning it's a remake of Mean Streets, so don't bother playing that (in the Tex Murph 1+2 pack), this is a much better presentation.

7th Guest, The

cioran's rating:
250

cioran says: Criminally underrated puzzle/horror adventure game.

11th Hour, The

cioran's rating:
250

cioran says: Good sequel to 7th Guest. Cloying if you don't like anagrams. There are lots.

Gabriel Knight 2: The Beast Within

cioran's rating:
250

cioran says: Good, if overrated, adventure game with mediocre soap-opera-esque FMV courtesy of Jane Jensen. Some of the puzzles are insane (like the tape puzzle), though nothing compares to the mustache puzzle in GK3.

Journeyman Project 2, The

cioran's rating:
250

cioran says: Haven't played it in years, know it has FMV, said to be good.

Journeyman Project 3: Legacy of Time,...

cioran says: Haven't played, has FMV

Myst: Masterpiece Edition

cioran's rating: not rated yet
250

cioran says: I don't know if this edition has FMV, the original did. So did Myst, Riven and Myst III and IV. Myst V bucked the trend and did mo-cap instead. I thought it was hideous, esp compared to Myst IV which looked like a high budget sci-fi film.

Riven: The Sequel to Myst

cioran's rating: not rated yet
250

cioran says: Has FMV, IMO better than Myst, of course I didn't like Myst much take it fwiw.

Phantasmagoria

cioran's rating:
250

cioran says: I'm very fond of this horror/puzzle adventure game but it is flawed, I'll be the first to admit that - and some of the puzzles are a bit out there. This series was my favorite of Jane Jensen's.

removeupdown
or

Phantasmagoria 2

cioran's rating:
250

cioran says: This game got very poor reviews on release and the FMV (much like Jensen's GK2) has a whole soap opera B-movie quality to it that is fairly cheesy. Still I like it. Also, as far as I know the first depiction of an openly LGBTQ character in games

Realms of the Haunting

cioran's rating:
250

cioran says: Lovecraft inspired First-person Action/Adventure before there was such a genre. Very well done.

Wing Commander™ 3 Heart of the Tige...

cioran's rating: not rated yet
250

cioran says: Classic FMV game. Hate flightsims, so I never bothered, but many love it. Probably the only FMV game besides Black Dahlia (Dennis Hopper) to have a legitimate celebrity (Mark Hamill).

removeupdown
or

Wing Commander™ 4: The Price of Fre...

cioran's rating: not rated yet
250

cioran says: Sequel to the above. Supposed to be very good, again not a flightsim buff. Said to be excellent.

Return to Zork

cioran's rating: not rated yet
250

cioran says: One of the earliest FMV games. The rebirth of the classic text based series.

Zork Nemesis: The Forbidden Lands

cioran's rating: not rated yet
250

cioran says: (FMV) Sequel to above

Zork: Grand Inquisitor

cioran's rating: not rated yet

cioran says: (FMV) Sequel

Stonekeep

cioran's rating:
250

cioran says: Thoroughly mediocre Action/RPG with FMV. One of the kinds of games that killed the genre.

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.
