Skunk's 2011 GOG Holiday Variety Pack

GOGmix by Skunk's avatarSkunk 3votes

Painkiller Black Edition

Skunk's rating:
250

Skunk says: Largely mindless and a little lacking in the level design department, Painkiller Black is oddly addicting and boasts great graphics, fast-paced gameplay, and some good multiplayer. At first I didn't care for it much, but it really does grow on you.

Heroes of Might and Magic® 3: Complete

Skunk's rating:
250

Skunk says: Arguably the greatest entry in the series, it's certainly the best one to start with. A hefty campaign, multiplayer, map editor, randomly generated scenarios, and it's easy for those unfamiliar with turn-based strategy to get into. Not to be missed.

Beneath a Steel Sky

Skunk's rating: not rated yet
250

Skunk says: Contrary to popular belief, December is the BEST time to spend on yourself. While I heartily encourage spending most of your paycheck here on GOG now, don't forget that they already gave you some cool stuff for free. Free doesn't mean it's not great!

Pro Pinball Big Race USA

Skunk's rating:
250

Skunk says: The best of several other great pinball games on GOG, if you've never played much pinball, or you're a purist who's never found a video pinball they liked, BRUSA is a great choice. The whole trilogy is great. Check out Pinball Gold Pack, too!

Creatures Exodus

Skunk's rating: not rated yet
250

Skunk says: It's hard to say whether you should play this one or Albian, but if nothing on this list has sparked your interest thus far, why not try Creatures? If the concept of artificial life and intelligent intrigues you, I'd recommend you take the jump.

Psychonauts

Skunk's rating:
250

Skunk says: Chances are, you've already played Psychonauts by now. If you haven't, Psychonauts is a platformer as unique as they come, and even folks who think they don't like this sort of game may very well love it. It's been high-rated for a reason, you know.

Witcher: Enhanced Edition, The

Skunk's rating:
250

Skunk says: You'll want better hardware than I have at home for this one, but it only serves to make Geralt's adventure that much more dazzling. The pride of GOG.com, The Witcher is packed with extras. The music, art, and story alone are worth the asking price.

or

Incredible Machine Mega Pack, The

Skunk's rating:
250

Skunk says: Relaxing, thought-provoking, humorous, and sometimes vexing, The Incredible Machine is literally nothing more than a giant collection of very engaging puzzles spanning several games. You can even make your own puzzles and Rube Goldberg devices.

Freespace 2

Skunk's rating: not rated yet
250

Skunk says: Guilty Gear X2 #Reload begs for an arcade stick, but Freespace 2 DEMANDS a flight stick. You can play without one, but you can get an Extreme 3D Pro for what this game probably SHOULD cost. Be sure to check out Descent and Comanche vs Hokum for more.

Tyrian 2000

Skunk's rating: not rated yet
250

Skunk says: A very different kind of flying game, Tyrian 2000 is a vertical shmup that you already own. It's open-source variant, OpenTyrian, and it's sister game, Raptor, are all worth checking out. All but Raptor are free, and all are equally worth playing.

Little Big Adventure (Relentless: Twi...

Skunk's rating: not rated yet
250

Skunk says: Feel like you've seen it all? If you've played Psychonauts, or even Earthbound, and you're longing for another game with that special brand of different that just sucks you right in, do yourself a favor; just buy this and the sequel right now.

POD Gold

Skunk's rating: not rated yet
250

Skunk says: GOG has a pretty decent variety of racing and driving games, but I've decided to single out POD. The competition is very close, but POD's decidedly futuristic design provides for a cool looking game with plenty of cool tracks to match.

or

Zork Anthology, The

Skunk's rating:
250

Skunk says: I'll admit, I know that asking some of you to play a text adventure for the very first time is a demanding task, but I have to try. There are no graphics. You need to let your imagination fill in the blanks for you. That's immersion, you'll love it.

Tex Murphy: Under a Killing Moon

Skunk's rating: not rated yet
250

Skunk says: Unlike Zork, this one is a graphical adventure. If you happened to own a Sega CD and played one too many awful FMV games, rest assured that Tex Murphy manages to justify that entire genre's existence. Be sure to check out Pandora Directive as well!

Crusader: No Remorse™

Skunk's rating: not rated yet
250

Skunk says: An isometric shooter, Crusader doesn't have a lot to compare it to, aside from perhaps games like Alien Shooter and Shadowgrounds. However, while those are both good games in their own right, Crusader is a very different game in a class of it's own.

Far Cry®

Skunk's rating: not rated yet
250

Skunk says: While it's not perfect, Far Cry features a large world that gives you a great feeling of freedom, excellent atmosphere, and some very delightful stealth gunplay. Again, this game has it's flaws, but I found the good more than made up for the bad.

Total Annihilation: Commander Pack

Skunk's rating:
250

Skunk says: Total Annihilation is a real-time strategy that can quite appropriately be described as "epic" without fear of hyperbole. The soundtrack is brimming with emotion, battles are large in scope, and strategic possibilities are endless. Not to be mis

Neverwinter Nights: Diamond Edition

Skunk's rating: not rated yet
250

Skunk says: While I probably should have put Planescape: Torment or Baldur's Gate here, Neverwinter Nights is a bit friendlier to those new to D&D to get into, has an adjustable camera, includes several expansions, and has quite the modding community.

removeupdown
or

Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition

Skunk's rating:
250

Skunk says: Saving my favorite on this list for last, an abundance of violence and hookers belies a game with some of the best level design to ever grace the genre. On par with the likes of Doom, Quake, and Blood; if you love any of these, it's a no-brainer.

Might and Magic® 6-pack: Limited Edi...

Skunk's rating:
250

Skunk says: While there are countless games that deserved to be here, I tried to make a variety pack that didn't include all my top favorites, with the hopes that you could enjoy a little of everything without breaking the bank. At 50%, this is less than $100.

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.
