My Favorite GOG Games

GOGmix by Gazoinks's avatarGazoinks 2votes

Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obs...

Gazoinks's rating:
250

Gazoinks says: The ultimate flawed masterpiece, and probably my favorite game ever. A great world, good story, excellent character development system, and a wealth of choices compensate for the flaws and make this an excellent cRPG.

Longest Journey, The

Gazoinks's rating:
250

Gazoinks says: One of the best adventure games. Includes: A good female protagonist, excellent voice acting, beautiful prerendered graphics. The puzzles are pretty easy, but this is really a story game, not a puzzle game. It's long for an adventure game, too.

Thief™ 2: The Metal Age

Gazoinks's rating:
250

Gazoinks says: My personal favorite of the Thief series. Really just more of what makes the first game great. More pure thieving, more Garret being great, more fun tools to play with, more sprawling levels, more ways to tackle levels, more taffers.

Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri™ Planeta...

Gazoinks's rating:
250

Gazoinks says: Probably my favorite turn-based strategy game. Plays like the Civilization games in space, but more so, with additional twists such as terraforming and ecological impact. Surprisingly atmospheric, and has a fairly interesting story.

Psychonauts

Gazoinks's rating:
250

Gazoinks says: Tim Schafer being Tim Schafer. Occasionally frustrating mechanics, but it's more than made up for by the charming artistic direction, great writing, varied worlds, and general uniqueness of the whole experience.

Thief™ Gold

Gazoinks's rating:
250

Gazoinks says: One of the greatest stealth games, with an excellent protagonist and a variety of ways to progress across the sprawling levels. I'm not crazy about the tomb-raidery stuff, so I prefer Thief 2, but Gold is still excellent.

Real Myst

Gazoinks's rating:
250

Gazoinks says: It's Myst, but less of a pain to navigate. It still looks pretty good, and I think I prefer this version to the original. As for Myst: It has some incredibly annoying puzzles, but what it does better than almost anything else is atmosphere.

Riven: The Sequel to Myst

Gazoinks's rating:
250

Gazoinks says: Speaking of which: Riven has even more ridiculous puzzles, but an excellent and beautiful world. I admit to being somewhat biased because I loved to explore the world when I was little, despite having no idea how to solve the puzzles.

Disciples 2 Gold

Gazoinks's rating:
250

Gazoinks says: An excellent strategy game based on managing a small squad of up to 6 dudes. Though there are only 5 factions, they all play very differently. Disciples 2 also excels in atmosphere, with a fairly low-key soundtrack and excellent gothic-tinged art.

Thief™ 3: Deadly Shadows

Gazoinks's rating:
250

Gazoinks says: Mainly suffering compared to the first two due to excessive linearity, Thief 3 is by itself a great game with great atmosphere and fun gameplay. It's just not as sublime as the first two.

Empire Earth: Gold Edition

Gazoinks's rating:
250

Gazoinks says: Gameplay-wise Empire Earth doesn't add much to the table of AoE-style RTSs. What makes it stand above though, is the epic span of epochs the game takes place across, from the stone age all the way to a cyberpunk future.

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.
