Tropico Reloaded

Numbers's rating:
250

Numbers says: THE nation simulator. None of the games came ever close to simulating how hard ruling a real nation is, except Tropico that is. Have a taste of how hard is to stay in seat of the power, when the winds of change might knock you off of it.

Master of Orion 1+2

Numbers's rating:
250

Numbers says: The Ultimate 4x space game. While MoO 1 is relatively simple, MoO 2 proves to be challenging in it's complexity. Both of the games haven't aged a day, except for the graphics maybe. But the core of the game is still as fresh as ever.

Jagged Alliance

Numbers's rating:
250

Numbers says: The real challenge when it comes to the squad games. Prepare to always be outgunned, outnumbered and carefully counting your last cent. It's a damn fine game for anyone that wants challenge and is not afraid of an outdated UI.

Jagged Alliance 2

Numbers's rating:
250

Numbers says: If JA1 proves too hard for you, there' always the sequel. While it might be a bit easier, as it provides a lot more options than during your adventures on Metavira, better money management options and better merc hiring options. Two thumbs up.

Settlers® 2: Gold Edition, The

Numbers's rating:
250

Numbers says: A golden classic - expansion of the original Settlers idea. With more sensible mechanics and a lot more options it provides hours and hours of fun with delightfully detailed 2D graphics. Too bad the 2-player hotseat mode won't work on modern PCs.

Master of Magic

Numbers's rating:
250

Numbers says: When SimTex was experimenting with new game concepts, they produced this little gem. The problem with the game though is that is buggy and unpolished, yet the number of options and the half-strategy/half-RPG feeling makes it a really great game.

Capitalism 2

Numbers's rating:
250

Numbers says: Capitalism is a game about... capitalism. Variety of options shows how hard is to build a multimillion dollar corporation or claim the market. Wits, intuition and patience is required for this game. It's a real challenge.

Sacrifice

Numbers's rating:
250

Numbers says: It's hard to summarize the game's uniqueness. It's a merge of an action game with an RTS game. The closest games to this one are probably Black and White and Populous. Highly recommended for God-game fans.

Heroes of Might and Magic® 2: Gold

Numbers's rating:
250

Numbers says: Heroes of Might and Magic will always be dear to my heart. Especially the 2nd installment. It has the most beautiful graphics from all of the series and the most perfect gameplay. The only thing bad about it is the AI and the very simplistic editor.

Castles + Castles 2

Numbers's rating:
250

Numbers says: Set during the 100-year war era, game concentrates warring nobles, fighting over Bretagne. Raise armies, build and design castles and wage wars. It's really astounding that this classic still has more complexitivy than many of the modern titles.

Lords of the Realm: Royal Edition

Numbers's rating:
250

Numbers says: An expansion of Castles idea. Lords of Realm is easier to manage but still it's complex and fun. The second installment feels a bit dumbed down and lacks the castle design option, but still it's very fun to play. Especially with your friends.

Constructor

Numbers's rating:
250

Numbers says: A really unique game centered around urban development and every dirty trick in the book associated with it. It's very hard to 'get into' this title, but after a few defeats, players usually get the hang of it.

Panzer General 2

Numbers's rating:
250

Numbers says: A sequel to a rather great line of strategy games. Panzer general 2 offers more options, more scenarios, better AI etc. The only problem I have with it is the pointless glorification of German armour, given other sides a huge disadvantage.

Knights and Merchants: The Peasants R...

Numbers's rating:
250

Numbers says: Knights and Merchants was made to be somewhat a challenger to Settlers. The outcome doesn't really look like the original, but it's still fun to play.

Conquest of the New World

Numbers's rating:
250

Numbers says: This game is pretty unique. Although the colonization of the new world game idea is old as computers are, this game's approach to it is certainly more interesting. If Colonization disappointed you, you might want to play this.

Heroes of Might and Magic® 3: Complete

Numbers's rating:
250

Numbers says: Two step forward, three steps back. HoMM3 despite having better gameplay options, loses with HoMM2 due to its horrid graphics design and huge balance issues. Doesn't mean it's a bad game, though. It's just not as perfect as people claim it is.

Heroes of Might and Magic®

Numbers's rating:
250

Numbers says: The game that started it all. Spin-off of the King's Bounty idea evolved into something really grand. The highlights of the game are the beautiful graphics and easy to pick gameplay. It's not as complex as the sequels though.

Total Annihilation: Commander Pack

Numbers's rating:
250

Numbers says: I personally don't like this game. Doesn't change the fact that it's a classic. It has a good multiplayer, but soon people will realize that the identical units on both sides, make the game dull even though it's balanced.

Stronghold HD

Numbers's rating:
250

Numbers says: As if someone cut the castle-building option from Castles or LoR I and made a game around it. Stronghold is all about building your fortress and defending it. It's hellishly addictive and fun, especially testing impossible scenarios.

Commandos Ammo Pack

Numbers's rating:
250

Numbers says: It's really hard to put this game in any sort of a genre. It's kind of like a timed logical puzzle or real-time chess. The game was often classified as strategy and thus I'll go along with it. Be warned, this game is ridiculously hard and unforgiving

Caesar 3

Numbers's rating:
250

Numbers says: After very good Caesar 1 and Caesar 2, we have Caesar 3 - the ideas presented in the last two games are expanded even more. It's a great city-building game, trying to simulate the ancient Roman society.

M.A.X. + M.A.X. 2

Numbers's rating:
250

Numbers says: It's a hybrid of an RTS and a TBS game. The problem is that with the amount of options and complexity, fun is somehow lost. It's hard to coordinate things in RTS mode, while TBS mode proves to be dragging on endlessly. Patient players only!

Combat Mission: Beyond Overlord

Numbers's rating:
250

Numbers says: There are many WWII games, Combat Mission is certainly one of the better ones. It's in the middle between an RTS and a TBS game. The games strong points are certainly the amount of tactical options. WWII and TBS enthusiasts should love this title.

Battle Isle Platinum (includes Incuba...

Numbers's rating:
250

Numbers says: A collection of turn based games that defined strategy games for years to come. Traces of Battle Isle series mechanics can still be found in games like Advance Wars. While Incubation is an excellent Squad-Based strategy.

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.
