Great Geezer games (AKA games not needing reflexes)

GOGmix by mangoman1's avatarmangoman1 13votes

Age of Wonders 2: The Wizard's Throne

mangoman1's rating:
250

mangoman1 says: you can meander around this world for hours and basically accomplish nothing...until of course, when you find you don't have the right mix of units and need to start over.

Baldur's Gate 2 Complete

mangoman1's rating:
250

mangoman1 says: another great geezer game for old men...I personally don't have the patience for this kind of RPG (I don't think in 20 years of gaming I have ever finished a true RPG.) . Senility breeds impatience, but gradually losing over a period of time is fun

Blitzkrieg 2 Anthology

mangoman1's rating:
250

mangoman1 says: One of my sons thinks this is much worse than Blitzrieg (more of a tank rush, etc.) Like its predecessor, one of the few games it is fun to lose many times until you get it right. (Like the Men at War series)

Blitzkrieg Anthology

mangoman1's rating:
250

mangoman1 says: see above comments..one of my all time favorites which I still play, and i have hundreds of games. (This time, I am going to keep that tank who was promoted to Sargeant after the last mission ALIVE for more than 3 minutes.) The expansions are hard.

BloodRayne

mangoman1's rating:
250

mangoman1 says: had a blast with this game with its actual sexiness and unique killing methods. Sequel was harder, but sexier I think. One of the few "'Shooters" I played.

B-17 Flying Fortress: The Mighty 8th

mangoman1's rating:
250

mangoman1 says: All world war 2 games are fair game for me. this was great in boxed form but you really need to download the ref card and key card to play this now. Way ahead of its time in my view.

Caesar 3

mangoman1's rating:
250

mangoman1 says: one of my biggest time wasters from a few years ago... historic, accurate, but loads of fun..Caesar 4 even better.

Combat Mission: Beyond Overlord

mangoman1's rating:
250

mangoman1 says: just for the grognards... very realistic,etc etc. but if I want that level of difficult realism I'll watch the news, thanks.

Commandos 2+3

mangoman1's rating:
250

mangoman1 says: grandaddy of "Men at War" type strategy games...Way to hard for the casual gamer, but if you have the patience to watch paint dry or grass grow then give this a shot.

Disciples 2 Gold

mangoman1's rating:
250

mangoman1 says: one of the best turn based strategy games out there,,,still on my hard drive far superior to Disciples 3, in every respect.

Dungeon Keeper™ 2

mangoman1's rating:
250

mangoman1 says: has many imitators now, but for sheer fun and evilness this is still the king of the dungeon building genre. The switch from top down to 1st person was a great idea and very novel back then.

Heroes of Might and Magic® 3: Complete

mangoman1's rating:
250

mangoman1 says: The undefeated champion of all turn based strategy..including all other Heroes. I f you have never tried this one then you really are missing a great gaming experience.

Etherlords

mangoman1's rating:

mangoman1 says: A little known series but is a great turn based card game kind of hybird Magic theGathering thingie. Etherlords 2 is much superior but currently not available on GOG...pity.

Lords of Magic: Special Edition

mangoman1 says: have yet to repurchase but I remember this being one of the first games that actually got me hooked on computer gaming...along with Gary Grigsbys ww2 game (can't remember the name...lol), the Perfect General, Red Baron 3D, Aces over Europe and ACes of the

Medal of Honor: Allied Assault War Chest

mangoman1's rating:

mangoman1 says: yes ok I said no shooters but still I played this one died a lot and enjoyed it anyway so shuddup. Inferior to Call of Duty series, though.

Iron Storm

mangoman1's rating:
250

mangoman1 says: This WW1 game I thought was one of the most intirguing concepts. Unfortunately, the execution and game play left a lot to be desired. Could have been great though.

Neverwinter Nights: Diamond Edition

mangoman1's rating:
250

mangoman1 says: I know this is supposed to be great but again with the watching paint dry syndrome. Tried for ever to get out of the city and never made it alive. M sons however raved and still rave about this game, especially with the mods available, etc.

Panzer General 2

mangoman1's rating:
250

mangoman1 says: greatest WW2 strategy game of them all..everything is unimpeachable right down to the impeccable voice acting of the intros to the missions, which is impossible to find in other games (good voice acting...maybe Gary Oldman in World at War and Alec Baldwi

Red Baron Pack

mangoman1's rating:
250

mangoman1 says: Red BARon 3D is still the best flying game out there, with the dynamic campaigns and ability to shoot down Richtofen BEFORE he gets good. Red Baron was unplayable, so its the 3D version. Caveat..ground based MG's are really tough!

Sacred Gold

mangoman1 says: Still have this loaded...a great mix of strategy and RPG.. and not too boring or repetitive!!!

Soldiers: Heroes of World War II

mangoman1's rating:
250

mangoman1 says: Spent many many hours dying and trying again with this one, and finally gave up about 5 years into it. Precursor of Men at War type, insanely difficult but unique and fun because of the squad and individual soldier control. If you are REALLY good or a s

Torchlight

mangoman1's rating:
250

mangoman1 says: the perfect "'RPG lite". you can play this for a few minutes or a few hours...kill demons, find stuff, kill more demons...and then GO FISHING! Just like old geezers like to do.

Witcher: Enhanced Edition, The

mangoman1's rating:
250

mangoman1 says: SExy, smart, literate..a little more fast moving than most RPG's.. still go back to it once in a while...as usual, haven't finished this RPG either. Groan! RPG's just feel like such a chore, but you feel obligatged, you know? (Like Oblivion)

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.
