Games You Might Miss But Shouldn't

GOGmix by phanboy4's avatarphanboy4 171votes

Blood: One Unit Whole Blood

phanboy4's rating:
250

phanboy4 says: Best Build Engine game after Duke Nukem 3D, this 1997 title is such an amazing and atmospheric run & gun there are still fansites devoted to it.

Capitalism Plus

phanboy4's rating:
250

phanboy4 says: Really interesting and engrossing economic simulator. Yeah, yeah, I know, who wants to play an economic simulator, right? Wrong.

Scratches Director's Cut

phanboy4's rating:
250

phanboy4 says: A great little game from Argentina sadly unknown outside of the adventure-gaming community, where it made quite a splash a few years ago before the developer closed down. Excels at slow build terror and atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Dark Fall: The Journal

phanboy4's rating:
250

phanboy4 says: The first indie adventure game from one man point & click powerhouse Jonathan Boakes. Think Myst, but subtly creepy. Very creepy. Because it has dark bits. I really hate dark bits.

Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers

phanboy4's rating:
250

phanboy4 says: Jane Jensen's first solo effort, this game was one of the first point & clicks to focus closely on real-world situations and characters. Amazing adventure.

Gabriel Knight 2: The Beast Within

phanboy4's rating:
250

phanboy4 says: Another stellar outing from Jane Jensen, this game has the distinction of being one of the only FMV-era games everybody needs to play. Wonderfully executed, even if the ending rushes by due to the budget issues Sierra encountered.

Gothic 2 Gold Edition

phanboy4's rating:
250

phanboy4 says: One of the best CRPGs of the past decade. And you might not have heard of it. I hope you have. Either way, now you know. Buy it.

Arx Fatalis

phanboy4's rating:
250

phanboy4 says: The last real first-person dungeon crawl. Atmospheric, fun adventuring.

Hostile Waters: Antaeus Rising

phanboy4's rating:
250

phanboy4 says: One of the most innovative titles nobody played, this game is a remake of the classic 'Carrier Command'. It's a typical RTS. Except your base station is a huge ship. And your soldiers are microchips. And you can personally control any unit. Also fun

MDK

phanboy4's rating:
250

phanboy4 says: The original third-person shooter. An amazingly creative and fun game. Ratchet & Clank takes more than a few obvious cues from this game.

Might and Magic® 6-pack Limited Edition

phanboy4's rating:
250

phanboy4 says: Before Heroes was, there was simply Might and Magic. And it was good. Very good.

Outcast 1.1

phanboy4's rating: not rated yet
250

phanboy4 says: Weird and innovative magnum opus from a sadly now-defunct Belgian developer, it's also known for being one of the select few games to use voxels extensively. It was also way ahead of its time.

Planescape: Torment

phanboy4's rating:
250

phanboy4 says: One of the most creative worlds and one of the most amazing stories ever told in gaming.

POSTAL 2

phanboy4's rating:
250

phanboy4 says: Yeah, it's gratuitous and over-the-top tacky. It's also tons of fun, and actually manages to create some semblance of an open world.

Magic Carpet Plus™

phanboy4's rating:
250

phanboy4 says: Ah, Magic Carpet. One of Bullfrog's underappreciated, ahead-of-its-time classics. For those that don't know, it's a 3D RTS/DotA/FPS/Flight game with real-time terraforming. That ran at 60FPS. In 1994. Yeah.

SWAT 3: Tactical Game of the Year Edi...

phanboy4's rating:
250

phanboy4 says: One of the best tactical squad-based shooters of all time. Easily as good as or better than Rainbow Six, and virtually identical to the later SWAT 4 in terms of mechanics, just with more missions and content.

Pro Pinball Big Race USA

phanboy4's rating:
250

phanboy4 says: It's pinball. Really good pinball. It's also more fun than you think.

Sanitarium

phanboy4's rating:
250

phanboy4 says: Notoriously buggy and beloved adventure game. Crazy, creepy story, surprisingly grown-up themes.

removeupdown

Tex Murphy: Under a Killing Moon

phanboy4's rating:
250

phanboy4 says: One of the first FMV adventure games, it's also one of the the only other ones worth playing besides Gabriel Knight 2. It employed ground-breaking first-person 3D environments.

removeupdown

Seven Kingdoms: Ancient Adversaries

phanboy4's rating:
250

phanboy4 says: Sort of like Civ + Sim City + RTS. A woefully under-appreciated classic. Addictive and loads of fun.

Guild Gold Edition, The

phanboy4's rating:
250

phanboy4 says: Underground GOG favorite The Guild is, well, a simulation of running a guild in the medieval era. Tons of fun, surprisingly deep, a bit glitchy. Buy it.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon®

phanboy4's rating:
250

phanboy4 says: Overshadowed by its big brother Rainbow Six, Ghost Recon is another tactical treat from Ubisoft's bygone days. Sort of a mini-Operation Flashpoint merged with Rainbow Six. If you know what I just said you probably want this game now.

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.
