Stories that rock my world

GOGmix by sanmadjack's avatarsanmadjack 16votes

Deus Ex™ GOTY Edition

sanmadjack's rating:
250

sanmadjack says: I don't need to justify this game being on top of this list. It does everything, and it does it PERFECT.

Longest Journey, The

sanmadjack's rating:
250

sanmadjack says: A more-than-adequate adventure game with a plot that knocks your socks off, headed up by what may be most well-written protagonist in any game. Bested only by its sequel, Dreamfall.

Anachronox

sanmadjack's rating:
250

sanmadjack says: Amazing: * Characters * Story * Music * FUN The BEST western-made JRPG. PERIOD.

Psychonauts

sanmadjack's rating:
250

sanmadjack says: The story starts with a young man who runs away from the circus to join a summer camp for psychics, then manages to keep getting crazier, more imaginative and more complex. May be the funn(i)est game ever.

Beyond Good & Evil™

sanmadjack's rating:
250

sanmadjack says: Endless, cinematic FUN. A good-enough conspiracy story made epic by its well-realized characters and a healthy dose of humor.

removeupdown

Freespace 2

sanmadjack's rating:
250

sanmadjack says: The by-the-book plot of FreeSpace 1 is blown wide open, along with every single other aspect of the game. Space combat on an epic level that hasn't yet been matched, and a story that does what few are able to: give the combat a real purpose.

Gabriel Knight 2: The Beast Within

sanmadjack's rating:
250

sanmadjack says: I played this a bit every night for two weeks, spending the days wondering what was going to happen next. An engrossing, surprisingly well-acted video adventure that ensnared my imagination.

removeupdown

Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers

sanmadjack's rating:
250

sanmadjack says: The grand-daddy of mature adventure games, one that still beats the pants off of the youngsters. The first time I heard a "destined to fight evil" story and actually got into it.

removeupdown

Myst Masterpiece Edition

sanmadjack's rating:
250

sanmadjack says: A bit of an oddity. Nothing actually happens in Myst, the entire story is told retro-actively through books in the game (except the endings, I suppose). But those books kept me interested right to the end.

removeupdown

Real Myst

sanmadjack's rating:
250

sanmadjack says: Read my blurb about Myst, but imagine my blurb in 3D!

removeupdown

Riven: The Sequel to Myst

sanmadjack's rating:
250

sanmadjack says: Take the amazingly realized back story of Myst, and add just-as-interesting events that actually occur in the game. An engrossing tale of fatherly betrayal in a world that astounds at every turn.

removeupdown

Prince of Persia®: The Sands of Time

sanmadjack's rating:
250

sanmadjack says: An uncomplicated story of a Prince trying to rescue a Princess from an evil Vizier, but well-written dialog and characters elevate it to a level of memorability that is quite rare.

removeupdown

Syberia

sanmadjack's rating:
250

sanmadjack says: It seems like a story about a woman trying to find a man who makes whimsical clockwork contraptions, but beneath it all I couldn't escape this feeling of melancholy. The whole game seemed to be ticking down to someone's death. It got to me.

removeupdown

Giants: Citizen Kabuto

sanmadjack's rating:
250

sanmadjack says: Not the deepest plot, in fact it's almost intentionally shallow. But it's SO. FUNNY.

removeupdown

Advent Rising

sanmadjack's rating:
250

sanmadjack says: A wonderful sci-fi epic marred by characters slightly on the one-dimensional side, and brought back to awesome by fantastic combat.

removeupdown

Sanitarium

sanmadjack's rating:
250

sanmadjack says: A fascinating story about a man's insanity, chuck full of well-written in-mind sequences.

removeupdown

Septerra Core: Legacy of the Creator

sanmadjack's rating:
250

sanmadjack says: Second only to Anachronox as the best western-made JRPG (oxymoron, I know). Original fantasy/steampunk setting with characters ranging from weak to awesome.

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.
