The Graphics Whore Collection

GOGmix by doctorfrog's avatardoctorfrog 6votes

Witcher: Enhanced Edition, The

doctorfrog's rating: not rated yet
250

doctorfrog says: Kind of hard to ignore newcomer The Witcher. Unique among GOG's other offerings, The Witcher and its sequel are published by parent company CD Projekt, and are among the most modern and flashy of games in the catalog.

Witcher 2: Assassins Of Kings, The

doctorfrog's rating: not rated yet
250

doctorfrog says: Like its prequel, the Witcher, The Witcher 2 isn't old at all, and sports the most modern graphics in all of GOG's catalog. It also features a modern game price: $49.99. Still, the DRM-free promise holds true here.

Far Cry®

doctorfrog's rating: not rated yet
250

doctorfrog says: It's a bit plasticky, and the enemies are braindead, but Far Cry has stunningly bright and clear graphics that'll still choke the unruly heck out of a modern GPU.

Freespace 2

doctorfrog's rating:
250

doctorfrog says: Thanks to an open source engine, and the attention of dozens of skilled fans, Freespace remains a glorious space battler with monstrous capital ships and clouds of fighters doing what they do best: shoot at each other.

Independence War 2: Edge of Chaos

doctorfrog's rating:
250

doctorfrog says: A fine counterpoint to Freespace, IWar2 ditches static missions for a semi-open string of solar systems, where you advance a dynamic plot. Thanks to several excellent design decisions, IWar2 has hardly aged a day.

IL-2 Sturmovik™: 1946

doctorfrog's rating:
250

doctorfrog says: With ten years of (somewhat) continuous development since its debut in 2001, there's no one who can doubt that Oleg Maddox cares about the games he creates. It's obvious in IL-2, still a looker in the modern gaming age.

Psychonauts

doctorfrog's rating:
250

doctorfrog says: It's hard to see how this didn't make it as a modern Sunday kid's cartoon. Tim Schafer doing his Tim Schafer thing of infusing personality in every aspect of this game.

Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition

doctorfrog's rating:
250

doctorfrog says: Another excellent design, Another World's rotoscoped animation has a timeless look, and is updated to scale to modern resolutions.

Beyond Good & Evil™

doctorfrog's rating:
250

doctorfrog says: BG&E shows how great character design and animation can trump low poly count in this cross-platform classic.

Darkstar One

doctorfrog's rating:
250

doctorfrog says: It's a shame that this is only a very mediocre game, as it really does have some decent spacefaring graphics.

removeupdown

Prince of Persia®: The Sands of Time

doctorfrog's rating:
250

doctorfrog says: Right up there with BG&E, PoP also stands the test of time.

removeupdown

Heroes of Might and Magic® 3: Complete

doctorfrog's rating:
250

doctorfrog says: "What's with this 2D garbage?" you say. Hush. With the HD mod, pushing Heroes III to just about any resolution at 1:1 pixels, this jewel box of a game should be obvious to anyone with a pair of eyes.

removeupdown

King's Bounty: The Legend

doctorfrog's rating:
250

doctorfrog says: Though it has the advantage of being a much newer game, KB should satisfy those for whom Heroes III isn't 3D enough.

removeupdown

Last Express, The

doctorfrog's rating:
250

doctorfrog says: I'm not aware of how it scales on a modern LCD, but TLE certainly has a unique look, among adventure games and those far outside its genre. A must-see.

Pro Pinball Big Race USA

doctorfrog's rating:
250

doctorfrog says: With big, colorful graphics, and very convincing mechanical movement, Pro Pinball is the next best thing to having a pinball machine in your basement.

Tyrian 2000

doctorfrog's rating:
250

doctorfrog says: With proper scaling, the pixelly graphics of T2K really shine. Another great example of good design carrying on through the years. The artists blog continues here: http://www.lostgarden.com/

Unreal Gold

doctorfrog's rating: not rated yet
250

doctorfrog says: Admittedly quite aged and far outclassed by the other selections on this list, Unreal is the original 3D graphics whore game and engine. And it still don't look half bad.

removeupdown

Far Cry® 2: Fortune's Edition

doctorfrog's rating:
250

doctorfrog says: Far Cry 2 certainly eclipses the plasticky shine of the original, even if the game mechanics are lacking in some peoples' eyes, and UbiSoft meticulously protected the game against any kind of future improvement. And yet, it is at moments, stunning.

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.
