write1 says: Sits atop my personal Greatest Games list. I have never seen any game before or since that gives the freedom and depth of Deus Ex. Have played through more times than I can remember and still find new things.
write1 says: A breakthrough game, it had a number of innovations never before seen in a FPS. A friendly squad you could give orders to. A planning screen you could preplot waypoints for your squads. It was a complicated game, but a good one.
write1 says: One of the first game to have a compelling narrative - and all without words. Beautiful scenery, compelling cutscenes, smooth animation, this was a landmark platformer.
write1 says: There's a reason people were willing to wait 20 odd years for Duke Nukem Forever, and it's this game. Fun, funny, with unique level design, weapons, and enemies, this is a classic.
write1 says: Fun, and funny. Play as the bad guy! How many games let you torture captured enemy character? Evil Genius is the only other one I can think of and Dungeon Keepers the far superior game.
write1 says: War never changes. You've heard that before right? This is the origins, a gritty RPG that allowed you to use drugs, murder anyone, do pretty much whatever they wanted. The brilliance was that all decisions you made had a consequence, good or bad.
write1 says: Perhaps not only the greatest - but the last. After Freespace 2, space shooters went out of fashion, with Freespace 3 and any Wing Commander sequel being canned. Freespace 2 has the good engine, fun gameplay, and awesome capital ship battles.
write1 says: There have been imitations over the years, but nothings come close to the Incredible Machine games.
write1 says: Pretty much created the third person shooter/platformer genre. Like The Last of Us, or the Uncharted series? Thank Tomb Raider. She's also one of the most famous game character around. She's a little pixilated now but those nude codes still work;)
write1 says: Had to pick a Thief game here, and Thief 2 got the nod. Think you're good at stealthing? Thief games put your skills to the test.
write1 says: Both this and it's sequel are pretty much the best isometric RPG games of all time. Great storylines, fun gameplay, really can't go wrong here.
write1 says: An underrated gem, Iwar mixed space combat/trading with RPG and RTS elements to make a unique an exellent game. Be warned however, you will need a joystick to play.
write1 says: A unique game that needs to be played. Basically an alternative universe 1976 America, with gangs of roaming bandits in cars with weapons strapped to them. A cool storyline and fun gameplay round this out. Look for the sequel too.
write1 says: A 'prequal' to Bioshock yet superior in pretty much every way except for graphics. In fact, with the help of graphic mods, even that can be fixed.
write1 says: Atmosphere. That's pretty much the key word for this and it's equally good sequel. Brilliant art design, wonderful story, great music, fun gameplay. Probably the best 3d platformers the PC has seen.
write1 says: This was the first game I ever had on CD. The opening animation (3D!) amazed me, and the gameplay was epic. Massive open world. Fully deformable terrain. Massive spell effects, and bigger monsters. A game that stretched 3dfx cards to the limit.
write1 says: The term 4X - eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, eXterminate - was coined by a reviewer to describe the gameplay of Master of Orion. The sequel, known as MOO2, is considered by most, myself included, as one of the greatest games of all time.
write1 says: To be honest, I wasn't really a fan of Myst. To be fair, I was in primary school when it came out so the puzzles were more than slightly harder than I could contend with, however there is not arguing the impact Myst had on gaming.
write1 says: Underrated platformer in a time that no-one was making platformers. Funny, difficult, sometimes even scary, this and it's sequel are amung the best and last platformers of their kind.
write1 says: My favourite of the series, Simcity 2000 just got everything right. There are later versions with better graphics, but this is the one I think deserving of the list.
write1 says: Why's this on the list? Secret Agent is a classic example of an 8 bit platformer, like Duke Nukem, Commander Keen, Captain Comic, or Crystal Caves. Secret Agent is amung the best with tight controls, and fun level design. Fun, fun game.
write1 says: If you've played the free game Slender: the 8 pages, you know what this one is about. It's on the list because it redefined horror games and developed the most elegant way I've seen to jumpscare the player, not only to shock, but as the way to lose.
write1 says: Kind of difficult to recommend buying this since Star Control 2 has an open source version created by the original developer - 'The Ur-Quan Masters' that fixed bugs and is fully voiced. Even so it deserves a spot on the list.
write1 says: Want to be a starship commander, flying around the galaxy? Want to trade with weird aliens, explore strange new worlds, and generally do the kind of things you see in Star Trek? This is the game for you. There is literally no game even close to these
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.
