Games I Owned Before GOG Existed8votes I like it
kentomatic says: Fans of classic, mindless shooters like Quake will love Painkiller. I've had so much fun with it that there's probably still a photo of me kissing the game box floating around the Internet.
kentomatic says: Not just this, but Far Cry Instincts for Xbox. It may not be as well recognized as two other first-person shooters released that year, Doom 3 and Half-Life 2, but it's a top-notch game with one of the most inventive engines I've ever played with.
kentomatic says: Honestly, Myst is the only adventure game on this list that I've actually finished. Maybe I was just more dedicated in my youth, or maybe Riven broke my spirit. But this one is a classic, which defined PC gaming for years.
kentomatic says: It's a beautiful, brilliant game. Just do me one favour: when you get to the puzzle with the little coloured pebbles that have to go on the grid, please tell me how to get passed it.
kentomatic says: It would've been so much cooler to play this one online, as originally intended; but Uru is still a great, natural evolution of the Myst series.
kentomatic says: I bought this when I was looking for a good alternative to Ultima Online to play with my friends. It turned out to be nothing like UO--instead it's one of my favourite games of all time.
kentomatic says: Not quite as funny as its spiritual successor, Armed & Dangerous, but the gameply is much tighter and the environments are simply gorgeous.
kentomatic says: I own the GameCube version, specifically. After selling BG&E to my cousin for some quick cash, I ended up buying it back from her because I just couldn't bear to part with it. It's the game that put me on the Michel Ancel fanclub.
kentomatic says: I bought Syberia 1 & 2 on a single disk for $10, which makes it one of the rare exceptions where GOG doesn't have the best deal. But good luck finding a copy of the disk I own--I found it on a bargain shelf at Toys 'R' Us in 2009. Stick with GOG.
kentomatic says: I haven't played it as far as the original, but both games share the same charm and style. Sequels are rarely as good as the original, but the Syberia games just flow into one another.
kentomatic says: I never could find Abe's Oddysee for PlayStation, but I played the heck out of its sequel. This is one of the few games that I plan to re-purchase through GOG, just so that I can have both games on one system.
kentomatic says: This game . . . is really boring, actually. And is it just me, or does it feel like Dalton is about four feet tall when you walk around?
kentomatic says: As far as I can tell, the entire game is based around trench warfare. It fits the period, but it makes the game feel like yet another corridor shooter.
kentomatic says: It's a great idea with great style, but the execution comes up short. The camera makes platforming a little awkward, and the scripted sequences needed just a little more polish.
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.
