Tactical RPGs

GOGmix by krasimir's avatarkrasimir 5votes

Icewind Dale Complete

krasimir's rating:
250

krasimir says: It's a great realization that you can create a game that carries the D&D logo but is thin on story and fat on combat. Definitely the right mix for any fan of tactical combat.

Age of Wonders: Shadow Magic

krasimir's rating:
250

krasimir says: Age of Wonders is similar to Heroes of Might and Magic and Master of Magic. As such, it offers an incredible array of options when it comes to tactical combat. Most of the battles are sieges too, which places a premium on good positioning.

Planescape: Torment

krasimir's rating:
250

krasimir says: This is the opposite of Icewind Dale when it comes to story. It's one of the best story-driven RPGs. However, it is an excellent combat RPG as well. It's the closest thing to a superhero in D&D. I loved being able to increase stats well above 20.

Master of Magic

krasimir's rating:
250

krasimir says: I find it more cumbersome than Master of Orion but it compensates with the tactical aspects of each encounter. In MOO, you only have a handful of monsters. Here, you have dozens of tactical challenges to overcome!

Ultima™ 7 The Complete Edition

krasimir's rating:
250

krasimir says: My favorite RPG of all time. One reasons is the variety of the combat. I remember dragging a canon to Destard and killed the dragons with it. There are glass swords, hammers that act as boomerangs, etc. Not to mention a working Armageddon spell.

Temple of Elemental Evil, The

krasimir's rating:
250

krasimir says: As frustrating as D&D combat system is at times. TOEE offers an excellent game focused solely on tactical combat. Landing a sleep spell on 6 opponents (out of 16) is one helluva way to start an epic battle.

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.
