GOGmix by tophat2k's avatartophat2k 10votes

Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers

tophat2k's rating:
250

tophat2k says: A top-notch cast of voice talent including Tim Curry, Mark Hamill, and Michael Dorn star in this lovely murder mystery set in New Orleans and involving Voodoo. The start of one of the best adventure game series of the 1990s.

Gabriel Knight 2: The Beast Within

tophat2k's rating:
250

tophat2k says: The FMV follow-up to Sins of the Fathers includes an even more fascinating mystery, this one focused on werewolves, that intertwines the paranormal with the legend of Germany's King Ludwig II and the works of opera composer Richard Wagner.

King's Quest 4+5+6

tophat2k's rating:
250

tophat2k says: Some of the best adventure games made by Sierra-On-Line during their classic period, these entries from the KQ series include great family-friendly plots & fairy tale atmosphere. Just be careful not to fall into a river; it's very easy to die!

Phantasmagoria

tophat2k's rating:
250

tophat2k says: While the plot is highly derivative from classic horror films and books, Roberta Williams' epic & explicit FMV opus is still a lot of fun to play and is one of the best polished live-action cinematic games of the 1990s.

Tex Murphy: Under a Killing Moon

tophat2k's rating:
250

tophat2k says: A witty interactive movie continuing the story of Tex Murphy, a PI living in San Fransisco in the near future after a devastating World War III, featuring a solid James Bond-like mystery, lots of great humor, and excellent puzzles.

Tex Murphy: The Pandora Directive

tophat2k's rating:
250

tophat2k says: With the same engine & game play as Under A Killing Moon, Pandora Directive raised the bar with a more richly developed mystery involving government conspiracy & Alien technology, along with a true branching plot & distinct endings.

Myst Masterpiece Edition

tophat2k's rating:
250

tophat2k says: The largely static graphics may seem dated now, but Myst remains a defining work for the adventure and puzzle genres, with excellent intuitive challenges that are fair for both young teens & adults.

Riven: The Sequel to Myst

tophat2k's rating:
250

tophat2k says: Far from a perfect, but still very much a worthy follow-up, Riven's CG environments border on true photo-realism, appearing lived-in and weathered, with lots of little details inserted to make them feel alive. However, it's a difficult game.

tophat2k's rating:
250

tophat2k says: A perfect period mystery with fantastic production design, puzzles and wonderful characters. Simply one of the best games on GOG!

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.
