More fun than you can stand: RPGs with good stories.

Septerra Core: Legacy of the Creator

Kailef's rating:
250

Kailef says: An interesting story is the primary attraction to this game. Engine wise, it's basically like playing a console "Final Fantasy" style RPG around the era of FF7. It's fun if you enjoy those sorts of games, and it'll frustrate you otherwise.

Witcher 2: Assassins Of Kings, The

Kailef's rating:
250

Kailef says: Although maybe not as polished as some of the triple-A RPG titles from BioWare, this is nonetheless an epic tale, with incredible attention to detail. (Although I could do without the Quick Time Events)

Planescape: Torment

Kailef's rating:
250

Kailef says: Occasionally frustrating, occasionally confusing, but amazingly fun, this "Infinity Engine" based game designed by Black Isle Studios is arguably the best game of it's type. Like Baldur's Gate, I suggest using the available high resolution mods

Lionheart: Legacy of the Crusader

Kailef's rating:
250

Kailef says: Using the same engine (albeit modified somewhat) as Fallout 1 and 2, this game had lots of potential. After a very interesting beginning, though, the game turns basically into a combat oriented game, and the story takes a back seat.

Baldur's Gate: The Original Saga

Kailef's rating:
250

Kailef says: BioWare's "Infinity Engine" drives most of Black Isle Studios RPG offerings is quite capable even today when modded up to run at high resolutions. The engine isn't the star, though, it's the excellent storytelling that makes this game.

Witcher: Enhanced Edition, The

Kailef's rating:
250

Kailef says: I had a bit of trouble with some of the English translations in this game, but many of the rough edges are polished out here in the Enhanced Edition. Despite a good storyline, though, the game still sometimes doesn't make as much sense as I'd like.

Two Worlds

Kailef's rating:
250

Kailef says: I badly wanted to like this game. The graphics are impressive, and it had great potential, but I personally never felt immersed in the world. The NPCs and story just seem too contrived for me to take it seriously.

Icewind Dale Complete

Kailef's rating:
250

Kailef says: Dungeons and Dragons equivalent of Fallout Tactics. Good if you enjoy combat using the Infinity Engine. Not so good if you're looking for an engaging plot line.

Icewind Dale 2 Complete

Kailef's rating:
250

Kailef says: Included for the sake of completeness, but there's nothing to say about Icewind Dale 2 that I didn't already say about the original Icewind Dale. Infinity Engine combat with very little story.

Divine Divinity

Kailef's rating:
250

Kailef says: Nothing to see here, move along. But seriously, no story here. This is a Diablo II clone, with less of a story than Diablo II.... And that's saying something. I'd rate it three stars except that it's just a little too boring to warrant it.

Sacred Gold

Kailef's rating:
250

Kailef says: More Diablo II style hack and slash, although maybe a little bit better executed than Divine Divinity, at least as far and the engine goes.

Temple of Elemental Evil, The

Kailef's rating:
250

Kailef says: Pure hack and slash, ladies and gentlemen. But this time, it's pretty well done. Good for those of you who who like the tactical side of RPG's. I think in my case, because I know some of the back story of ToEE, it's more fun to me.

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.
