Stone cold classics: if you only get a few, get these

GOGmix by Nadir5000's avatarNadir5000 32votes

Blood (One Unit Whole Blood)

Nadir5000's rating:
250

Nadir5000 says: THE best 2.5D FPS. Caleb's the man, the levels are gritty and mean, and the game's challenging without being frustrating. Only downsides are a lacklustre final act to the main game and lack of a source port ;(

Outcast

Nadir5000's rating:
250

Nadir5000 says: The graphics look a bit silly now, but look past that and you've got one hell of an action RPG with a fantastic game world. Ambitious and ahead of its time.

Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition

Nadir5000's rating:
250

Nadir5000 says: More famous than Blood, but not quite as great. Still a fantastic game anyway; you'll never forget your first visit to the Build engine strip bar! Just watch where you point that rocket launcher!

Serious Sam: The First Encounter

Nadir5000's rating:
250

Nadir5000 says: Because Serious Sam is just badass. Yeah, everyone who cares already owns the HD version, but so what? 2nd Encounter is a little better due to more variety, but both games are great.

Planescape: Torment

Nadir5000's rating:
250

Nadir5000 says: I'm not into D&D, but who cares: this is rightly considered by many as a high watermark for storytelling in RPGs. You can get through without any fighting at all; just be prepared for a LOT of reading! Worthwhile and awesome reading.

Real Myst

Nadir5000's rating:
250

Nadir5000 says: The original's alright, but I really prefer this one; all the brainbending environmental logic puzzles of the original with none of the whoops-i-clicked-the-wrong-arrow-prompt. One wonders though, will we ever see Myst 3: Exile on GOG?

Descent + Descent 2

Nadir5000's rating:
250

Nadir5000 says: Fast-paced rocket ship pew-pew laser FPS action! Prides itself on its full 3D movement, which is still novel and fun today. Don't bother if you get motion sickness though, this will mess you up. I feel bad for you, I am sorry :(

Star Control 1+2

Nadir5000's rating:
250

Nadir5000 says: SC2 is the single greatest space exploration game ever made. Some advice; if you're not after SC1 save your cash and download the superior open source version of SC2, The Ur-Quan Masters, instead: http://sc2.sourceforge.net/downloads.php

Beyond Good and Evil™

Nadir5000's rating:
250

Nadir5000 says: Nothing else quite like this one, which puts you in the shoes of underground reporter Jade as she reveals the truth behind the alien invasion of her home planet. It's different, yet oddly nostalgic. Get it, love it, and pray for BG&E 2.

Gothic 2 Gold Edition

Nadir5000's rating:
250

Nadir5000 says: Speaking of open-ended CRPGs, Gothic 2's one of the best with a fantastic atmosphere. It's a VERY tough game with wonky fighting controls, but there's a difficulty slider mod floating around somewhere I'd recommend.

Rayman® Forever

Nadir5000's rating:
250

Nadir5000 says: As far as post-16bit 2D platformers go, this is one of the greats. Presentation-wise it's for kids, but it's really, balls-bustingly tough; take that as you like. Beautiful spritework, too!

Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition

Nadir5000's rating:
250

Nadir5000 says: Cutting edge for its time. The graphics stood well enough not to need updating, but here we are anyway with higher-res graphics. Heads up: prepare to die a lot to trial-and-error. Don't be a baby, you'll get it right eventually.

Master of Orion 1+2

Nadir5000's rating:
250

Nadir5000 says: Two of the best turn-based strategy games out there. Become a powerful intergalactic empire! Trade with and/or crush other alien races, then fight some meaner ones to win! DO NOT get MoO3 though, it is bad

Cannon Fodder

Nadir5000's rating:
250

Nadir5000 says: This would basically be a flash game if released today, but it'd be a damn good one. Simple to control but easy to get horribly killed, you'll get weirdly attached to your little soldier guys. This is war: old men talk, young men die.

Unreal Gold

Nadir5000's rating:
250

Nadir5000 says: Easily one of the top-tier FPSes from the early full-3D days, although it's kind of easy to get lost in some of the levels (beautiful as they are). I wish Unreal would come back but U2 and UT3 kind of killed it by sucking. Sad...

Two Worlds

Nadir5000's rating: not rated yet
250

Nadir5000 says: I kid, I kid. Not old, not exactly GOOD, but goofy fun and worth $10. Take it seriously at your own risk, just ignore the quest for a while and break the game in myriad hilarious ways. This game looks like my in-laws

Dungeon Keeper Gold™

Nadir5000 says: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH AAAHH AHHH AAAAAAAAAAAA a aaa oh god they finally got this game oh god oh man oh man aaaa oh god oh god yes

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.
