The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

GOGmix by MadSweeney's avatarMadSweeney 2votes

Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obs...

MadSweeney's rating: not rated yet
250

MadSweeney says: A game with a unique setting and intriguing story. Dialogue options are made for your character: if you have low INT, expect to talk like the Incredible Hulk. If you can stomach the horrendous combat system, you're in for an RP treat, at least.

Baldur's Gate: The Original Saga

MadSweeney's rating: not rated yet
250

MadSweeney says: A classic. There are few other games where you start out so humble. I have beaten the original game (including Tales of the Sword Coast) 4 times, both with and without mods, as well as the Enhanced Edition (which I highly recommend). Buy it.

Baldur's Gate 2 Complete

MadSweeney's rating: not rated yet
250

MadSweeney says: Highly overrated, with wildly inconsistent writing (among other gripes), BG2 is not the masterpiece you think it is. Worth a try if you play a mage, as there are some epic spell slinging showdowns to be had. Otherwise, play BG1 instead.

Broken Sword: Director's Cut + The Or...

MadSweeney's rating: not rated yet
250

MadSweeney says: I honestly never understood what people saw in this game, and I LOVE adventure games. I thought the voice acting was terrible even in '96, and I didn't find the story particularly engaging. The Director's Cut did little to change my mind.

Gemini Rue

MadSweeney's rating: not rated yet
250

MadSweeney says: Despite some inconsistent voice acting, a plot twist I saw coming miles away, and an awkward, tension killing moment (or two), GR has something missing in most modern releases: atmosphere. It's also well paced, and there's some cool Easter Eggs.

Icewind Dale Complete

MadSweeney's rating: not rated yet
250

MadSweeney says: Lighter on story than other IE games, Icewind Dale is all about the combat. Not worth your time if you've played Temple of Elemental Evil, but then again, what RPG is?

Icewind Dale 2 Complete

MadSweeney's rating: not rated yet
250

MadSweeney says: Do you: 1) Enjoy fighting orcs? 2) Love it when villains explain every detail of their evil plan to your party before disappearing/fighting you? 3) Like games that take the "RP" out of "RPG"? If you answered "Yes" to any of the above, play this!

Neverwinter Nights: Diamond Edition

MadSweeney's rating: not rated yet
250

MadSweeney says: The OC isn't the disaster most people make it out to be, it's just far longer than is necessary (and therefore very boring). HotU, as well as the large selection of high quality community modules, make this worthy of your attention.

Neverwinter Nights 2: Complete

MadSweeney's rating: not rated yet
250

MadSweeney says: One of my favorites. The MotB expansion alone is worth the price of admission. For some reason, I enjoyed the OC and have completed it thrice (though I am fully aware of its badness). SoZ is mediocre, but I'm a 3.5 nut, so...

Planescape: Torment

MadSweeney's rating: not rated yet
250

MadSweeney says: Another highly overrated "masterpiece," P:T isn't really a GAME, but rather a book that you play. For all its flaws (and there are many if you judge it as a game) I love this "game" to death. I implore you to try it, but I understand if you hate it.

Tales of Monkey Island

MadSweeney's rating: not rated yet
250

MadSweeney says: Despite some forgettable supporting characters, ToMI is one of the reasons that Telltale is one of my favorite developers. A pleasure even if you haven't played the other games.

Temple of Elemental Evil, The

MadSweeney's rating: not rated yet
250

MadSweeney says: The absolute best implementation of 3.5 Edition rules ever, and one of the best combat systems in an RPG. Period. I like it more than most Infinity Engine games, because it doesn't take a lifetime to complete.

Ultima™ 4: Quest of the Avatar

MadSweeney's rating: not rated yet
250

MadSweeney says: Another classic. A surprisingly rich and detailed fantasy world that demands to be explored, with a main quest unlike any RPG before or since. Oh, and it's FREE.

Witcher: Enhanced Edition, The

MadSweeney's rating: not rated yet
250

MadSweeney says: The only people who think Assassin's of Kings is better are graphics hounds. Visuals aside, this game outclasses the sequel in every respect.

Witcher 2: Assassins Of Kings, The

MadSweeney's rating: not rated yet
250

MadSweeney says: Slightly inferior to its predecessor, but a must play nonetheless. Did I mention all DLC is free?

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.
