Similar to Heroes of Might and Magic in a good way.51votes I like it
ArbitraryWater says: Basically Civilization with a bit of Heroes of Might and Magic thrown in for good measure. One more turn syndrome in abundance.
ArbitraryWater says: Like the previous game, Age of Wonders owes a lot to both the Heroes of Might and Magic and Civilization series. Therefore, if either falls in your respective venn diagram, it's most certainly worth taking a look at.
ArbitraryWater says: A fairly different take on the Age of Wonders formula, it's a little more like Master of Magic than the first game and a bit less like heroes
ArbitraryWater says: The oddball of these turn based strategy games on GOG, Disciples II boasts a very strong art design with a little more RPG than your average strategy game.
ArbitraryWater says: Named after the game that Heroes of Might and Magic was based on. While the sluggish pace and ocasional grindiness may wear out its welcome, this game is recent enough that it being $10 is a pretty good deal
ArbitraryWater says: The pseudo-sequel to Age of Wonders 2. Basically a standalone expansion, if not anything else. It's more of that action, which isn't a bad thing.
ArbitraryWater says: While all of these turn based strategy games clearly borrow from one another, Eador is probably the most guilty of borrowing from all of them at the same time. That's not a bad thing.
ArbitraryWater says: Like Disciples II, but with a significant step down in aesthetic quality. The gameplay is, for all intents and purposes, pretty much the same, but not quite as good. Probably worth skipping.
ArbitraryWater says: Technically the combat is in real time, but it's still turn based or whatever. I haven't played enough to give a definitive opinion on how good it is, but popular sentiment suggests it's "ok"
ArbitraryWater says: The first of the series, but the one I played last. While fine on its own merits, its biggest flaw is simply that Heroes II exists...
ArbitraryWater says: ...and does everything the first game does better while still retaining the charm that made it interesting in the first place.
ArbitraryWater says: But of course, Heroes III is the one that people will cite as the default option for the best installment of the series. They're probably not wrong
ArbitraryWater says: I mean, how else could you justify the number of mission pack expansions that were made for it? While the writing is decent for most of them, the challenge is lacking and, in the end, they're just extra campaigns if you've finished the main game.
ArbitraryWater says: Easily the most divisive installment of the series. For my part, I think it's pretty good with the Equilibris mod installed, which balances enough of the game to make it much more fun. Too bad the art design is still atrocious.
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.
