The Black Isle Mix

GOGmix by MaulYoda's avatarMaulYoda 17votes

Planescape: Torment

MaulYoda's rating:
250

MaulYoda says: The other candidate for Black Isle's best game (and certainly one for the best CRPGs of all time), Planescape undoubtedly has the best story ever crafted by Black Isle, with fantastic writing, deep RPG systems, and a unique setting to boot

Baldur's Gate: The Original Saga

MaulYoda's rating:
250

MaulYoda says: This is Bioware's baby, but one that Black Isle helped out with. It has all the fantastic storytelling and mechanics that have come to define Bioware's games, and remains one of the finest CRPGs ever created, if not the absolute best

Baldur's Gate 2 Complete

MaulYoda's rating:
250

MaulYoda says: Another Bioware game that Black Isle helped out with, this game continues Baldur's Gate's reputation as a definitive RPG series. Whether or not it's better than the original, it's still one of the greatest CRPGs of all time

Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obs...

MaulYoda's rating:
250

MaulYoda says: While Arcanum was developed by Troika Games, it relates to Black Isle because Troika was founded by three of the creators of Fallout. And like Fallout, it's a memorable experience set in a unique world with depth and meaningful player choice

Icewind Dale Complete

MaulYoda's rating:
250

MaulYoda says: Heavier on the combat than the RPG elements, Icewind Dale is more for the hack-and-slash crowd and those who enjoy classic RPG combat over mechanics and stats. It's still a great RPG, but don't go in expecting Fallout or Planescape

Icewind Dale 2 Complete

MaulYoda's rating:
250

MaulYoda says: The last game Black Isle ever made. While it's not the biggest bang to go out on, it's still a great CRPG, and certainly serves as a worthy end to the golden age of RPGs. The interface is fantastic, and the story is top-notch

Temple of Elemental Evil, The

MaulYoda's rating:
250

MaulYoda says: Another game developed by Troika, the developer that came out of Black Isle. I didn't play this game much, but it's alright from what I remember. Not Troika's best work, but good enough

Lionheart: Legacy of the Crusader

MaulYoda's rating:
250

MaulYoda says: Black Isle also only assisted on this one, but it wasn't their finest hour by any means. However, it uses the incredible SPECIAL system from the Fallout series, so if you'd like to see those mechanics in a medieval setting, this is your game

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.
