The Adventurer's Backpack Essentials

Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition

drdark's rating:
250

drdark says: Granted, some will argue against me including this game in the list. But I still consider it an adventure game. There's a story going on, very subtly told; and much of the blasting which is done is very much reliant on strategy and puzzle-solving.

Beneath a Steel Sky

drdark's rating:
250

drdark says: My love for this game is sometimes difficult to explain, but it probably goes with my love for things with a sci-fi twist. It also never feels too long or too short, but just right. Great music and visuals complete the adoration.

Beyond Good and Evil™

drdark's rating:
250

drdark says: Zelda for PC. That's what everyone calls this. That's not unfair, but it's not a carbon-copy either. A fun Action-Adventure for the PC. Nothing more, nothing less.

Broken Sword 2: Remastered + The Orig...

drdark says: The central character is American. Some people are annoyed by this. If you're not, just go get it. No more needs to be said.

Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers

drdark's rating:
250

drdark says: The depth of the story here is almost unbelievable. Another reason I laugh in the face of all the so-called videogame "journalists" these days saying we're just starting to see deeper stories. Features proper writing, and voodoo lore.

Lure of the Temptress

drdark says: Looks dated these days, but short and fun. The living world they have with everyone going about their own business was also impressive for the day. Also: FREE; so why are you still rea-

Sanitarium

drdark's rating:

drdark says: The last true great Adventure game of the ancient era. The best use of CG cutscenes for storytelling I have seen so far. One of my favourite games of all time.

Journeyman Project 2, The

drdark's rating:

drdark says: Buy this game or I'll cry. It's like all my dreams come true. The entire Trilogy takes my top game of all time spot. Travel through time, solving puzzles spanning all time periods. Some of my favourite music too.

Longest Journey, The

drdark's rating:
250

drdark says: Another shining example of depth of writing in games. Takes a while to get started, but once it grabs you, you'll excuse its foibles.

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.
