250

Sampyla says: I'm a RPG/Strat gamer, but this one really made me think about adventure/platformer genre. One of those games that break boundaries. Play it through now since theres sequel coming out!

Commandos 2+3

Sampyla's rating:
250

Sampyla says: Puzzle game that makes you break your quicksave and quickload buttons, but the satisfaction of finally finding that one guard where you can start disassembling the german defenses, makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Recommended for everyone.

Haegemonia Gold Edition

Sampyla's rating:
250

Sampyla says: 4X RTS refined. Only bad thing I can tell about this one is that theres just too much to do. They should really have stood with the Turn-based model. But still very enjoyable experience, lots of hours for your buck.

Heroes of Might and Magic® 3: Complete

Independence War 2: Edge of Chaos

Sampyla's rating:
250

Sampyla says: The definition of space opera. Recommended to play this first. And when you get hooked, go for the first one. This game has been modded to heaven and back. One of my favourite 3rd party mods is babylon 5 conversion!

King's Bounty: The Legend

Sampyla's rating:
250

Sampyla says: Revival of the game that inspired the HOMM series. A must play for TBS gamers, and a good starting point for those wanting to get into the genre

King's Quest 4+5+6

Sampyla's rating:
250

Sampyla says: Good solid adventure games. If you are looking into getting into the series or the genre, these ones are the ones to go for first. Graphics are brilliant and coloured, makes it easier to go for the first three which don't look that pretty.

Master of Magic

Sampyla's rating:
250

Sampyla says: TBS defining titles, a must have if you love turn based, or strategy's at all.

Master of Orion 1+2

Sampyla's rating:
250

Psychonauts

Sampyla's rating:
250

Sampyla says: If you are looking for something different and innovative. This game gives you run for your money. Psychotic landscapes and quality platforming. Even old and cranky strategy gamer like me loved this.

Raptor: Call of the Shadows 2010 Edition

Sampyla's rating:
250

Sampyla says: One of the pioneers of bullet hell genre. Recommended for those arcade minded ad/hd kids out there. Cranky old strategy gamer approves of this one too.

Return to Krondor

Sampyla's rating:

Silent Hunter® 2

Sampyla's rating:
250

Sampyla says: Really well done WW2 submarine simulator. Definately not for everyone. But for strategy/simulator fans, this is a must play. Not a really good entry point into the genre because steep learning curve and sometimes dull gameplay.

Simon the Sorcerer

Sampyla's rating:
250

Sampyla says: Adventure game with funny jokes/dialog, and beautiful looking colored characters and landscapes. Really good entry point for adventure games. And it has an amazing sequel too!

Space Quest 4+5+6

Sampyla's rating:
250

Sampyla says: Again, the fruits of the golden age of adventures. Recommended to start here and when you fall in love, advance to the first three so the graphical barrier wont be too big of a deal. Of course if you don't care about graphics too much, go for 1-3.

Spellforce Platinum

Sampyla's rating:
250

Sampyla says: Really interesting RPG/RTS mix. Two of my favorite genres in one. The RPG and RTS elements ripped apart wouldn't be anything great, but together they make for a gaming experience you can't get from anywhere else.

Settlers® 2: Gold Edition, The

Sampyla's rating:

Total Annihilation: Commander Pack

Sampyla's rating:
250

Sampyla says: Forget about supreme commander, this one takes the cake for the most massive RTS titles out there. Single player not so good, but if you have few like minded people to play with, go for it!

Vampire The Masquerade - Redemption

Sampyla's rating:
250

Sampyla says: Play through the campaign as a vampire seeking revenge. One of the first games to fully exploit the vampire genre. No cheesy twilight vampires in this game! Recommended truly for everyone.

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.
