GoG's Legacy games

GOGmix by ucfalumknight's avatarucfalumknight 1vote

Alone in the Dark 1+2+3

ucfalumknight's rating:
250

ucfalumknight says: Alone in the Dark created the Survival Horror Genre. Games such as Resident Evil and Silent Hill owe their existence to this classic. Also early adoption of 3D with characters and environments.

Baldur's Gate: The Original Saga

ucfalumknight's rating:
250

ucfalumknight says: Considered the catalyst of the CRPG Renaissance of the 90's. Baldur's Gate is still considered by many today to be the measuring stick of the CRPG.

Beyond Good and Evil™

ucfalumknight's rating:
250

ucfalumknight says: While a commercial disaster, this game is heralded as one of the best examples of character development in any game. Peter Ancel created a game world that was thought provoking with interesting, emotional characters.

Descent 3 + Expansion

ucfalumknight's rating:
250

ucfalumknight says: Descent took the traditional linear FPS and changed it into an immersive 3d world. While Descent 1 and 2 could be represented here, they did not have the truly interactive 3D feel that 3 brought. Many games owe their lives to this title.

Deus Ex™ GOTY Edition

ucfalumknight's rating:
250

ucfalumknight says: The first of truly "freedom of choice" games. Deus Ex gave the player the opportunity to play however they wanted to. Play it with guns blazing or stealthily with as little gun play as possible.

Dungeon Keeper Gold™

ucfalumknight's rating:
250

ucfalumknight says: While not a Legacy game for it's building components (which had been done before) this game earns legacy status as it allowed the player to become the Bad Guy. Up until this release, we were relegated to being the heroes.

Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition

ucfalumknight's rating:
250

ucfalumknight says: This is a tough one. While nothing ground breaking, Duke Nukem 3D brought a new attitude to the first person shooter genre. Humor was mixed into the plot, something that had been sorely missing in the Legacy FPS's

Heroes of Might and Magic®

ucfalumknight's rating:
250

ucfalumknight says: This games legacy goes to the expert blending of tactical battles mixed with RPG elements, combined with individual heroes. Heroes of M&M blended all of these successfully and is often imitated today.

Far Cry®

ucfalumknight's rating:
250

ucfalumknight says: Far Cry's legacy is it's open world. You could spend days playing Far Cry and never advance the story at all. Sandbox FPS games owe their souls to Far Cry. Also, the CryEngine was a huge leap forward in 3D engines.

King's Quest 1+2+3

ucfalumknight's rating: not rated yet
250

ucfalumknight says: To create a list of Legacy games and not include the Kings Quest games would be criminal. This game revolutionized the Adventure genre and is still imitated today.

MDK

ucfalumknight's rating:
250

ucfalumknight says: This is the first game that effectively implemented the zoom in Sniper Rifle Scope. It is still used today in many FPS games.

Psychonauts

ucfalumknight's rating:
250

ucfalumknight says: A marvel in game design, this game shattered the "rules" of the platform games when it was released. Innovative still today.

Thief™ Gold

ucfalumknight's rating:
250

ucfalumknight says: Until the release of Thief, most FPS/3rd Person games were about running in, guns blazing and killing every baddie on the level. Thief was about stealth. It introduced the concept of Noise generating environments that the player had to be aware of.

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.
