Righting Childhood Wrongs - Games I Finally Finished

GOGmix by KCar's avatarKCar 9votes

Planescape: Torment

KCar's rating:
250

KCar says: The mother of all childhood regrets, the great game that somehow got lost in the shuffle. Never finishing this one was a thorn in my side for a decade - until GOG re-released it. My life is better now - the air just tastes more sweet.

Baldur's Gate: The Original Saga

KCar's rating:
250

KCar says: I have heard modern gamers scoff at having to swap discs once or twice in while playing a game. I smile, knowing that I broke under the pressure of playing the original Baldur's Gate, a six disc behemoth, with an itchy trigger finger on "eject."

Broken Sword: Director's Cut

KCar's rating: not rated yet
250

KCar says: The game that always sat just outside of my reach: once it was beyond my hardware specs, then it was off the shelves, seemingly forever. A hole in my childhood has now been filled.

Real Myst

KCar's rating:
250

KCar says: I owned the original for years, but the crippled family 486 would not allow me to play it; animations were crippled, so while I could see the static photos, the little touches that gave the game life were denied me. Real Myst makes this gem shine.

Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers

KCar's rating:
250

KCar says: Does anyone remember Sound Card conflicts? I could made it up to the final area of this game, but it would crash reliably when I attempted to enter it. It took over 10 years for me to get closure. Worth it? Perhaps. Those tears are a part of me now.

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.
