GreasyDogMeat says: (1988 - 1993: Commander Keen engine) John Romero's Dangerous Dave started as a Mario clone and evolved into a horror themed side scroller. The sequels were created by Softdisk. The Commander Keen engine was the first smooth scrolling engine on PC.
GreasyDogMeat says: (1989 - 1993: Carmack coded top down & pre-Wolfenstein 3D engine) Introduced first person strafing, destructible walls and some early hub level design later seen in Hexen.
GreasyDogMeat says: (1993: Wolfenstein 3D engine) Features that elevate it above a Wolfenstein clone include usable vending machines, enemies who fake their deaths and the ability to revisit completed floors. James Bond , Buck Rogers and Wolfenstein had a baby.
GreasyDogMeat says: (1994: Wolf 3D Engine) Sequel to Aliens of Gold. A continuation of the story with a few new enemies, weapons and improved graphics. In many ways, Planet Strike is to Aliens of Gold as Spear of Destiny is to Wolfenstein 3D.
GreasyDogMeat says: (1994: Wolf 3D engine) Originally developed as a sequel to Wolf 3D. Legal/rights issues resulted in the game losing connection with Wolfenstein but it retained some WWII elements. Tom Hall who worked on RotT would go on to work on Anachronox.
GreasyDogMeat says: (1998 - 1999: id Tech 2, the Quake 2 engine) A Duke Nukem 3D style shooter with complex levels, loads of secrets, hidden routes/levels and a wise-cracking protagonist. SiN was unfortunately overshadowed by Half-Life.
GreasyDogMeat says: (1999: id Tech 2) A grimy atmospheric story of revenge. While not as RPGish or complex as Deus Ex or Bloodlines, the game features some hub/quest design similarities.
GreasyDogMeat says: (2000: id Tech 2) Numerous troubles and an engine switch from Quake 1 to 2 delayed development and Daikatana was buggy and outdated on release. Some fun to be found among the flaws. Download the fan 1.3 patch. It turns the game into a decent one.
GreasyDogMeat says: (2001: id Tech 2) While Daikatana marked a low point for ION Storm, Anachronox was one of it's gems. The game is styled after console RPGs like Final Fantasy but improves on the genre with a large dose of humor, less grinding and a cool sci-fi plot.
GreasyDogMeat says: (2006: id Tech 2) An arena (Quake 3/Unreal Tournament style) shooter with cartoonish graphics. Features a unique dodge mechanic that allows you to bounce off walls.
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.
