nmillar says: When Baldur's Gate arrived, everyone was blown away. Because it worked, and it worked very well. It was so good that even those who had only expressed a passing interest in RPGs became turned on to what had been released.
nmillar says: Taking away the single-player adventure mode of Unreal, Unreal Tournament propelled first-person shooters into a whole, fresh new direction, emphasising the multiplayer and making it Epic Games' finest hour.
nmillar says: There's a bit more of a serious edge to the third game making gamers tread more with Heroes Of Might And Magic III (for the first few moments anyway). After that, you just throw yourself into the experience.
nmillar says: In the mid-Nineties, RPGs seemed to have fallen out of favour with few having been released. Black Isle Studios wasn't put off by that though, and it created Fallout. It helped to reinvigorate RPGs and it became one of the best of all time.
nmillar says: As one of the best role-playing and adventure games of all time, Planescape: Torment gave little away at first and this proved to be a real winner. The more you explored, the more you discovered.
nmillar says: Neverwinter Nights was ace as single-player, better as multiplayer and it made great use of BioWare's Aurora Engine to produce the firm's debut 3D RPG. Hooray.
nmillar says: It was his transition to fully grown up 3D maestro in 1996 when Duke really broke through the ranks, and whether he tramps around Los Angeles or outer space, whether he encounters a stripper or two, there's just no stopping him.
nmillar says: What FreeSpace 2 did is take everything that was great about Descent: FreeSpace and further the potential. It took the game to the next absorbing level.
nmillar says: This dreamy tale of a world of magic and a world of science falling into each other boasted stunning environments, and it was released at a time when adventure games were thought to be on their last legs. TLJ showed there was some mileage left.
nmillar says: The critical acclaim for Beneath A Steel Sky is still apparent today - there are many fans who would love to see a sequel. And, thanks to Revolution deciding to release Beneath a Steel Sky as freeware, the title continues to attract new gamers.
nmillar says: Spanning two generations, the story attracted many fans and became a solidly popular graphic adventure. It was also the first to use the Adventure Game Interpreter engine in 1984.
nmillar says: There are many gifted gaming geniuses in the world. Tim Schafer is one of them, and with this 3D platform title that boasts beautiful graphics he has put together a superb psychic, offbeat game.
nmillar says: Going back more than 1,000 years (it's 1066 and all that), Stronghold fuses expansionist conquest with economic development in Medieval Britain, and was heartily received back in 2002.
nmillar says: In 1993 this game earned its stripes to such an extent that it has been inducted into numerous halls of fame over the past decade-and-a-half. A sequel to this game would surely have gone down well.
nmillar says: Doom clones have been ten-a-penny since the game made its debut back in 1993, but few put its own fresh spin on the genre quite like Descent. It was addictive and dizzying, with attacks hitting you from all manner of angles.
nmillar says: The name may initially put you off, but don't let it - for IL2 Sturmovik is a beautiful flight sim which throws you back to between 1941 and 1945 and lets you grab hold of 31 American, German and Russian planes. Swoop majestically and lap it up.
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.
