The games that made my childhood4votes I like it
therealjackal says: Interstate '76 is hands down my favorite game ever. It's stylish, it's funny, it's challenging, and quite frankly, it's damn good. Twisted Metal? Please. This is auto combat at it's finest.
therealjackal says: One day at a friend's house I saw him playing this awesome looking shooter. That game was Unreal Tournament, which remained my favorite multiplayer game ever until the release of Team Fortress 2 over a decade later.
therealjackal says: I've always loved scrolling shooters and Tyrian is by far my favorite of them all. It's fast-paced, fun, has excellent music, has a cool shop system and even has a great story, something you don't find often in this genre.
therealjackal says: Descent is the game that helped me not to fear the dark. When you're flying around in those dank mines with an arsenal of awesome weapons and a handy robot buddy to light the way, its the enemies that should fear you.
therealjackal says: Apart from Age of Empires, Total Annihilation was my first RTS and I loved every punishing moment of it. I didn't care that I wasn't any good at it. I just got lost producing loads of the games near-infinite variety of units.
therealjackal says: Raptor is perhaps my favorite shooter ever, bar Tyrian. Raptor captivated me with its militaristic level design and awesome music. An awesome variety of weapons and well-paced difficulty arc round out this must-play game.
therealjackal says: Duke 3D is one of those games that define a genre. It's funny, it's intense, and it's... well, awesome. Duke is the quintessential nineties action hero, with a lot more personality then those lame Halo and CoD posers. Duke 3D is a good game. Period.
therealjackal says: Though I had no idea what was going on when I played it, I loved MDK. To this day I think the reusable parachute mechanic works flawlessly and I always found the use of a sprite to represent Kurt when everything else was 3D rendered to be charming.
therealjackal says: MAX was one of my first strategy games and the only turn-based one I ever liked, barring perhaps Advance Wars. The dark sci-fi setting pulled me in and the overall look of the units and structures always appealed to me. I never played the sequel.
therealjackal says: There's not much intellectual to say about Redneck Rampage. It's a game about two hillbillies fighting other hillbillies and aliens. It's hilarious, crude fun.
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.
