Matt's 90s. Games that made me.1vote I like it
TheSarge.813 says: Besides X-Wing and TIE Fighter (both of which I still hope will appear on GOG), the Wing Commander series were my favourite space based action games. Great story, great characters, magnificent soundtrack.
TheSarge.813 says: It's Elite-light (very, very light). In the Wing Commander Universe. With a pretty cool story and decent amount of free-roaming, space-freelancer stuff.
TheSarge.813 says: I loved Civilization, I loved Colonization and then I got it on an alien world with wonderful factions and a surprising mystery running behind it all. Alien Crossfire added more great factions, more gameplay and sucked away more hours of my life.
TheSarge.813 says: Breaking away from your European liege, forming your own independent nation on the American continents, fluctuating gameplay from exploration, colony-management, trading, research and preparation for independence. Captivating and still deep.
TheSarge.813 says: It may sound weird, but the fact that your characters could die of a cold if you didn't correctly prepare for a longer journey STILL speaks to me. And you could travel all over northern Aventuria in pursuit of the story. Wonderful, hard, RPGs.
TheSarge.813 says: It streamlined Realms of Arkania 1 and 2. It took away most of the complexity. But the story was also streamlined, in a good fashion. It's easier, but still satisfying.
TheSarge.813 says: Battle Isle 1 and 2, as well as the (sadly missing from GOG) History Line 1914-1918 were some of my first forays into turn-based strategy. Even before the [X] General series. And they still hold up well.
TheSarge.813 says: Hours. Days. Weeks. MONTHS lost to those games. Especially MOO2. My sis and I played extensive play-by-mail multiplayer games on huge galaxies. The singleplayer experience also still beats most sci-fi 4X games from modern times.
TheSarge.813 says: The different planes, multiple factions, multiplay ways to win, artefact crafting, various spellbooks, utterly gorgeous graphics and a compelling, gripping atmosphere make this one of the best fantasy strategy titles of PC videogame history.
TheSarge.813 says: You start playing on a map you just created. You never stop. You just don't stop. Your city becomes your baby. Infrastructure and semi-micro-management made FUN. Maxis knew what they were doing.
TheSarge.813 says: Lands of Lore 1 is, to this day, one of the most gripping tile-based first-person RPGs out there. The atmosphere (graphics, soundtrack and characters) is simply amazing. Also: PATRICK STEWART! WOO! *ahem* Yeah. Great game.
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.
