RPG's that just can't be missed.

Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obs...

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: This remains my favorite RPG of all time... you can almost never play the same game twice, the magick vs technology angle is interesting, it's well-written, and it provides endless hours of entertainment.

Planescape: Torment

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: Ah... Planescape... One of the most bizarre and complex RPG's I've ever played. The mechanics are straightforward, but the dialogue and storyline are what really make this game so amazing.

Baldur's Gate: The Original Saga

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: What is there to be said about Baldur's Gate that hasn't already been said many times before? It's the quintessential modern RPG that all other Western RPG's since owe something to.

Baldur's Gate 2 Complete

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: I really treat both the original and the sequel as a continuous saga, so if you get BG1, you need to get BG2 to complete the story. Technically, BG2 plays better, but both games are equally amazing.

Temple of Elemental Evil, The

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: While it doesn't have the best writing around, this is the closest you're gonna get to the tabletop D&D 3.5 experience. It's brutally difficult, but if you're patient with it, it provides a phenomenal party-based RPG experience.

Neverwinter Nights Diamond

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: Neverwinter Nights is one of those RPG's that is both excellent right out of the box and has an amazing mod community. Really the fan-made mods are what make this game a must-have, but it's definitely a great D&D game regardless.

Gothic

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: While its sequel outdid it in nearly every way, the original Gothic is a phenomenal action-RPG in its own right. There's only one major problem: it has the worst controls I've ever seen in an RPG. If you can get past that, a great experience awaits.

Arx Fatalis

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: Arx Fatalis was Arkane Studios' attempt to pay homage to the classic Ultima Underworld (originally intended to be UU3, ironically), and it did a great job. Challenging, fun dungeon crawling with a highly interesting magic system await you herein.

Witcher: Enhanced Edition, The

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: The definitive version of a phenomenal action-RPG. Once you get past some adjustment to the odd gameplay mechanics and voiceovers, you'll find a deep, clever title based on a best-selling Polish novel series.

Ultima™ 4: Quest of the Avatar

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: That it's free only helps, since Ultima 4 is one of those RPG's that, without it, we probably wouldn't have the genre as it is today. Definitely a game to look into, despite its really awkward controls and learning curve.

Ultima™ 7 The Complete Edition

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: Easily one of the best RPG's of all time, Ultima 7 is also one of the most genre-defining. Pretty much everything you can find in a modern RPG was done in Ultima 4, 5, 6, or 7 first. Definitely grab this one.

Deus Ex™ GOTY Edition

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: Make no mistake: this is an RPG, not an FPS. And when you treat it as such, you'll find a marvelously atmospheric cyberpunk experience wrapped up in conspiracies. Everyone needs to play this one.

Betrayal at Krondor Pack

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: Betrayal at Krondor was one of those defining RPG's that everyone just needs to play. That this comes with Betrayal in Antara only adds more value to the package.

Lands of Lore™ 1+2

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: Lands of Lore 1 was a phenomenal, if difficult RPG with great writing and classic dungeon crawler-style gameplay. 2, on the other hand, was more action-oriented, and took a few missteps, but was still quite good. Well worth looking into.

Stonekeep

herrorcman's rating:
250

herrorcman says: Stonekeep was an interesting dungeon crawler with phenomenal graphics for the time and somewhat unusual gameplay. It's a bit hard to get into, and at times is somewhat absurd in difficulty, but it's still quite enjoyable.

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.
