Matt's 90s. Games that made me.

Wing Commander™ 1+2

TheSarge's rating:
250

TheSarge 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.

Wing Commander ®: Privateer ™

TheSarge's rating:
250

TheSarge 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.

Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri™

TheSarge's rating:
250

TheSarge 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.

Colonization, Sid Meier's

TheSarge's rating:
250

TheSarge 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.

Realms of Arkania 1+2

TheSarge's rating:
250

TheSarge 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.

Realms of Arkania 3

TheSarge's rating:
250

TheSarge 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.

Battle Isle Platinum (includes Incuba...

TheSarge's rating:
250

TheSarge 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.

Master of Orion 1+2

TheSarge's rating:
250

TheSarge 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.

Master of Magic

TheSarge's rating:
250

TheSarge 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.

SimCity 2000™ Special Edition

TheSarge's rating:
250

TheSarge 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.

Lands of Lore™ 1+2

TheSarge's rating:
250

TheSarge 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.

Syndicate Plus™

TheSarge's rating:
250

TheSarge says: Gritty, sarcastic, darkly humorous cyberpunk real-time tactics action game. It starts out all simple and fun and then quickly progresses into hectic, balls-hard and fun. Intense action packed with research paths and "persuasion". I love "persuading".

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.
