Planescape: Torment

semjaza's rating:
250

semjaza says: Have a social life? Partner? If so, don't get this game. The writing is stellar, the characters excellent -- in fact, the game's only fault is the combat, which isn't great. Should you buy this and become a hermit, don't blame me. I told you so.

Baldur's Gate 2 Complete

semjaza's rating:
250

semjaza says: This game is also anathema to a social life. It has an engrossing story, tactical combat, and the game's absolutely huge. Okay, it's not as good as Planescape, but few things are that still involve keeping your clothes on for.

Disciples 2 Gold

semjaza's rating:
250

semjaza says: Don't buy this. When you're sat in a pool of your own bodily waste, twitching from caffeine overdose and having not eaten or slept in three days, you will remember my advice. Save yourself the anguish. I wish I had. This is turn-based excellence.

Gothic 2 Gold Edition

semjaza's rating:
250

semjaza says: I got this game when it first came out. My computer could barely handle it -- it took nearly 10 minutes to start, and a peculiar bug rendered everything in metallic monochrome. I still played it, though. A lot. Excellent action-RPG.

Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obs...

semjaza's rating:
250

semjaza says: In this game, you get to kill important plot NPCs and animate them as zombies to dance as meat-puppets for your diabolical amusement, *and* there's voice-acted dialogue for just this eventuality. The combat may be clunky, but Arcanum's RPG gold.

Freespace 2

semjaza's rating:
250

semjaza says: The best space-sim ever made. (Yes, better than Tie Fighter.) Dust off your force-feedback joystick, buy this, install the FSSCP (source code mod that massively improves graphics), then prepare for a serious case of can't-possibly-go-to-work-itis.

Divine Divinity

semjaza's rating:
250

semjaza says: A derivative and clunky A-RPG with a stupid, *stupid* name and voice-acting that sounds like the programmers simply mumbled into a microphone... ... and yet this game's really quite good. The humour actually succeeds, and the combat can be great.

Psychonauts

semjaza's rating:
250

semjaza says: This game involves jokes about exploding heads, the ability to set squirrels on fire with the power of your mind, and a circus made of meat. It's deranged, extremely funny, and damnably good.

Guild Gold Edition, The

semjaza's rating:
250

semjaza says: Hatch Machiavellian plots to bring down all who oppose you. Or have people beaten up and throw toad gunk at their houses while cackling maniacally. This is a medieval life sim, if medieval life involved regularly flinging toad gunk. It's also fun.

Independence War 2: Edge of Chaos

semjaza's rating:
250

semjaza says: This space sim features Newtonian physics. This typically means you'll spy an enemy at very long range, accelerate to a significant fraction of c, and then smash into the nearest planet. And swear a lot. Persist, though, and you'll be rewarded.

King's Bounty: The Legend

semjaza's rating:
250

semjaza says: This game takes the standard turn-based combat on a hex grid model and manages to refine it into something that should have a Surgeon-General's warning on the box.

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.
