Just the things I like…

GOGmix by Dimmer-FJ's avatarDimmer-FJ 3votes

Caesar 3

Dimmer-FJ's rating:
250

Dimmer-FJ says: Probably the apex of city-building games. Gets most everything right, and even the "flaws" (stupid engineers wandering around like they own the place while major fires abound) add a little something. CivCity Rome is probably the only "modern" equiv.

Call to Power 2

Dimmer-FJ's rating:
250

Dimmer-FJ says: Ah, the joyous days of fighting over "Who owned the rights to make a Civ game?" -- Call to Power 2 lost out, and lost the "Civilization" from the title, but this is still a solid Civ-alike with enough new stuff to maintain interest.

Conquest of the New World

Dimmer-FJ's rating:
250

Dimmer-FJ says: A fun little diversion: akin to Colonization, but more geared towards fun. My ex-wife hated it (as you can choose to be nasty to the Natives), which alone makes it list worthy!

Dark Reign + Expansion

Dimmer-FJ's rating:
250

Dimmer-FJ says: It's a sweet RTS game, sure it was a homage / copylike to another RTS you may have heard of...

Empire Earth Gold Edition

Dimmer-FJ's rating:
250

Dimmer-FJ says: (Consider EE2 and to a lesser extent EE3 in this recommendation). Like Age of Empires (same developers? I forget!) but with a wider historical view, and improved management and controls.

Freespace 2

Dimmer-FJ's rating:
250

Dimmer-FJ says: Better than Elite on the BBC Micro. And that's a big compliment. (Freespace 1 and it's expansion are also good, but FS2 is much improved.)

Ground Control Anthology

Dimmer-FJ's rating:
250

Dimmer-FJ says: Yes, it's "just another" RTS game, but it's got some tricks of it's own, and at the time was graphically state of the art. The sequel (Ground Control 2) is also good, but the original is the better of the two.

Judge Dredd: Dredd vs Death

Dimmer-FJ's rating:
250

Dimmer-FJ says: Alright, so maybe it's not so great. Takes a great property and turns it into just another FPS. Sad, so sad. 2000AD was the only comic in my youth that I really enjoyed. Such a shame that this abomination was released. Better than the movie thou.

Master of Orion 1+2

Dimmer-FJ's rating:
250

Dimmer-FJ says: MoO 2 remains the best of the 4X games (again IMHO) -- many hours lost on these two.

Warlords Battlecry 3

Dimmer-FJ's rating:
250

Dimmer-FJ says: A rather strange take on the RTS genre. Having been hooked on Warlords I decided to give this series a try, and Battlecry 3 is easily the best of it's line.

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.
