SpiderFighter says: (Mix last updated on 19 Nov. 2013)
SpiderFighter says: There's a lot of love for these games but, for me, they haven't aged well and don't offer as much variety of game play as Expendable or Sega's Alien Syndrome (which predated Alien Breed by 3 years).
SpiderFighter says: Cameron's "Aliens" flick meets arcade/Diablo styled isometric shooter. By the end of lvl 2, I'd already killed over 1500 aliens! How can that be wrong? Intense action + secret areas + RPG elements + things that go BOOM = fun, fun, fun!
SpiderFighter says: Branching dialogue trees, beautiful graphics, challenging but logical puzzles, a good variety of monsters, automapping (!), decent voice acting, and classic "stab n dodge" gameplay make this a keeper even 20 years later. Docked a star for no "rest."
SpiderFighter says: Take one incredible RTS, throw in three expansions and the ability to play as Allied Forces, Germans, or the Russians, and you have a no-brainer for fans of the genre. Graphics still hold up, and the immersion level is incredible.
SpiderFighter says: Created by legendary John Carmack. Features quite a lot of game for being the 1st ever FPS. Pack also includes the sequels from John C., John Romero, & Tom Hall. For history, gets 5 stars. As games, pretty poor now. Fans of "Masters of Doom," buy.
SpiderFighter says: Dark and gritty feel, great style, innovative contextual cursor, decent music, crisp, bright graphics, strong plots. Too bad it's all undermined by bugs, poor scripts, and ham-fisted acting. Try the demo first to see if it's worth the money to you.
SpiderFighter says: My first turn-based strategy game. Considering its age and size (less than 100 MB), it holds up rather well. I may be biased, but it's still loads of fun. One of those "one more turn" games that I can't seem to put down once I start playing.
SpiderFighter says: Disarmingly charming action RPG, and one of the few games where I actually enjoy the cut scenes. Beautifully rendered, with a fun setting and humorous dialogue. Only hampered by "twitch" combat and repetitive candy hunting.
SpiderFighter says: Atmospheric mystery (your brother has vanished in a derelict train station) that does a great job of keeping the player unsettled. Sound effects give a very creepy vibe. Revisiting same areas multiple times gets old, though. Puzzles are logical!
SpiderFighter says: The tutorial makes me want to choke someone, the launcher is broken, and waypoints are buggy...but there's a good attempt at a story, graphics are decent, and wide variety of units to choose from. Not my favorite RTS but I'm in the minority, so YMMV.
SpiderFighter says: Same rating as the first for different reasons. Graphics & music are ok but the isometric camera is awkward, your troops have poor AI & pathfinding (not the enemy, of course), & the game play is generally slow & dull. Easier to start than DR1 though.
SpiderFighter says: Incredibly fun and addictive tower defense game with light rpg elements thrown in. Simple, colorful graphics, but with a good sense of humor. Only docked a star for low resolutions when windowed. Great intro to the genre.
SpiderFighter says: Along with Doom, this is the Granddaddy of the FPS. Featuring a back story filled with humor, creative & fun weapons, jetpacks(!), rocking soundtrack, pop cultural references, and countless User Generated Content, this is a MUST play. Come get some!
SpiderFighter says: Solid little side-scrolling platformer that didn't fare too well upon release, but is surprisingly fun to play. Responsive controls, crisp textures, and that patented Duke (3D, *not* Forever) humor make this worth checking out.
SpiderFighter says: This is the game that cemented Bullfrog's fame. DK2 took everything that was good about DK, and added innovations such as 3D acceleration and dynamic lighting effects. This mission-based dungeon builder is a classic in every sense of the word.
SpiderFighter says: Fun hack-n-slash with strong level design, a "collectible" component, two campaigns (light & dark), a variety of battlegrounds, responsive controls, and character classes that actually feel different from one another. Slightly buggy, but still good.
SpiderFighter says: The plot is thin, the voice acting is fair, the plot's on rails, the music is forgettable, and the servers have been taken down; yet, I cannot pull myself away from Etherlords 2, and find myself chanting "just...one...more...battle" like a mantra.
SpiderFighter says: The idea is brilliant: Play through the history of fantasy video games. Unfortunately, the game is completely underwhelming. Too short and with no real narrative, it's a one trick pony that fails to engage the player in any meaningful way.
SpiderFighter says: Mindless, fun shoot-em-up that plays like a cross between Robotron 2084 and Super Smash TV. Bosses are tough, but fair. Tons of powerups. Many things go BOOM, make Hulk happy. Be prepared to spend time learning the controls (hint: use a joypad).
SpiderFighter says: An interesting spin on RTS games. Can play as Humans or Orcs (and later, Elves). Definitely not a cakewalk; you must use your units, upgrades and the (huge!) maps strategically. Beautiful and colorful, good music and sounds. Recommended.
SpiderFighter says: This action brawler could have been great, but too many problems plague it. Controls are awkward, and save system is nearly non-existent. The story is decent though, and the characters, while cookie-cutter, have personality. Average at best.
SpiderFighter says: Interesting little tactical / strategy game where you control a spirit "army" in order to scare (and/or) possess people. There is also a "collectible" element (in the form of medals and stat-raising plasma). Worth a look but not for hardcore RTS fans
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.
