Games that whisk you away7votes I like it
GoldenEye says: The standard-bearer for all who would follow. Enhanced here with the expansion, 'Tales of the Sword Coast'. (Soundtrack included!)
GoldenEye says: For those who just couldn't get enough Baldur, one more should do it. There are many who claim this is the definitive PC RPG, but I would beg to differ. Also includes the expansion pack, 'Throne of Bhaal'. (Soundtrack included!)
GoldenEye says: Planescape: Torment is often considered one of those "underrated" games, however judging by the amount of love it gets here I would say it has well and truly attained cult status at this point. (Soundtrack included!)
GoldenEye says: Arcanum however has not quite reached that same cult status as Planescape (see above). While the game has much to recommend, it is the lesser of the RPGs presented here, but not by much. (Soundtrack NOT included)
GoldenEye says: An RPG for those who simply like to play. Specifically with roles. The game is far from an absolute classic, but it has a certain charm, and a definite level of enjoyment. Also includes the expanion, 'Heart of Winter'. (Soundtracks included!)
GoldenEye says: More of the above, presented in a neat little package. Enjoyable, if not typical. Inon Zur rocks the house on this one though. Includes the 'adventure pack', which is essentially nothing but minor DLC. (Soundtrack included!)
GoldenEye says: At this point, I begin to move through the genres - HoMM3 is a great place to start, as it transcends genre to appeal to many. TBS in its prime, featuring 'Armageddon's Blade' and 'The Shadow of Death'; both expansions. (Soundtrack included!)
GoldenEye says: An interesting experiment in story-telling, this game essentially explores the life of a single character across multiple chapters of in-universe history. If you enjoy HoMM3, check this badboy out. Includes all 8 campaigns. (Soundtrack included!)
GoldenEye says: Another take on the grand scheme brought to the table in HoMM3. If you've played through the previous games listed above, and simply must have more, investigate this. 'The Gathering Storm' and 'Winds of War' are onboard. (Soundtrack included!)
GoldenEye says: Dated and difficult, this can be tough for newcomers. Master of Orion II is where the action is at for those of us that can't get into MoO1's aged mechanics. (MoO2 Soundtrack included!)
GoldenEye says: Some may cry foul here - the debate regarding Orion or Centauri's supremacy raged for many a moon. Ultimately, both are rather separate from each other. (Soundtrack NOT included)
GoldenEye says: Unique and engaging, this is something many of you who enjoy WWII period pieces and tactical strategy titles can immerse yourself in. Includes expansion 'Beyond the Call of Duty'. (Soundtrack NOT included)
GoldenEye says: Superior to the Ammo Pack above, Commandos 2 and 3 bring separate, yet wholly comparative experiences to the table. Take cover, soldier! (Commandos 2 Soundtrack included!)
GoldenEye says: Grand or grandiose? This is essentially Commandos all over again, except in the Old West, at the turn of the century. And even more brutally difficult. (Soundtrack included!)
GoldenEye says: Self-explanatory, really. (Soundtrack NOT included)
GoldenEye says: Brilliant and time-consuming, the original RollerCoaster Tycoon treads the line between 'expansive' and 'extortive' that its sequels could never quite master. Includes 'Corkscrew Follies' and 'Loopy Landscapes'. (Soundtrack included!)
GoldenEye says: As mentioned above, this sequel took to the mantra of 'bigger equals better' - sadly, its occasionally too deep for its own good. Includes 'Wacky Worlds' and 'Time Twister' expansions. (Soundtrack included!)
GoldenEye says: Exhausting and comprehensive, the game is simply a fun time-waster, one that transports you right off to Rome. (Soundtrack NOT included)
GoldenEye says: Free. Dave Gibbons involvement. Point and click brilliance. Nothing more needs to be said. (Soundtrack NOT included)
GoldenEye says: One of the greats of its time, The Last Express introduced us to a wholly fleshed-out world of intrigue and immersion. Jump aboard! (Soundtrack included!)
GoldenEye says: Somewhere between unique and downright transcient lies Syberia, a game that breathed a little fresh air into a near-dead genre. Artful, soulful, exceptional. (Soundtrack included?)
GoldenEye says: Although occasionally by-the-numbers, Sybria II continues the magic that was born above. Benoit Sokal ought to be commended for his desolate, occasionally daring worlds. (Soundtrack included?)
GoldenEye says: Oozes charm from every pore. Its spectacle is grand, its world fully-realised. Once you're in, you'll never want to leave. Both cuts of the game are here to experience. (Soundtrack included!)
GoldenEye says: Equally involving, Broken Sword II: The Smoking Mirror is simply a grand example of a bygone era. Soak up the nostalgia, dude! Both cuts onboard. (Soundtrack NOT included)
GoldenEye says: Involving, however not unexpected. Take this badboy for a spin if you're looking for an example of the point-and-click in fine form. (Dark Fall 2 is not listed here as it is not Win 7 compatible.) (Soundtrack included!)
GoldenEye says: Some of Dark Fall's DNA seems present here, but don't be fooled: this one is not for the squeamish. Exceptionally enjoyable and curiously involving, don't forget to turn out the lights. (Soundtrack included!)
GoldenEye says: Intriguing, yet often flawed. The game is on the cusp of something brilliant, but its weaknesses often pull it down a little. Puzzles are ridiculous in some cases. (Soundtrack included!)
GoldenEye says: Just to throw you off a bit, why not go for the opposite of art - exploitation! Wholly separate from its terrible FPS sequel, the original is an off-the-wall take on the classic top-down shoot-'em-up subgenre. (Soundtrack NOT included)
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.
