The Kings of Immersion (WiP)

GOGmix by Truehare's avatarTruehare 6votes

Outcast

Truehare's rating:
250

Truehare says: The grand master of immersion. Adelpha is a fascinating world, and every game mechanic is explained inside its universe. After playing for long periods, you won't answer by your name, you'll be expecting to be called "Ulukai" instead.

Gothic

Truehare's rating:
250

Truehare says: A close second. The open world is marvellous, even before Morrowind. Besides, the NPCs feel alive, have a lot of personality and intricate relationships with one another. The realistic training system is a plus.

Sanitarium

Truehare's rating:
250

Truehare says: If you've ever wondered what it's like to slowly go insane, unable to trust your own senses, play this gem. If you dare. The melancholic mood, beautifully disturbing ambients and twisted characters will get to you. Definitely NOT for everyone.

Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition

Truehare's rating:
250

Truehare says: From the atmospheric intro, you'll know you're in for a ride. It's so movie-like you could die on the first scene, not knowing the intro was over. You forget it's a platformer, it feels like you're really there. And all that without text.

Alone in the Dark

Truehare's rating:
250

Truehare says: I'll only talk about the first game. If you want to feel like you are really alone in a haunted house, overpowered and almost defenseless (who wouldn't?), then play this one. It's also good to play so you learn the real meaning of Survival Horror.

Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers

Truehare's rating:
250

Truehare says: A gripping mystery/horror story, with Hoodoo, colorful characters and beautiful backgrounds. And blues! What's not to like? The puzzles do a great job of making you think like Gabriel, which should be the whole point of adventure games.

Planescape: Torment

Truehare's rating:
250

Truehare says: If you don't like to read, skip this game. For those who do, there's a fascinating multiverse to be gradually discovered through hours of talk. It's a plain RPG otherwise, but the setting, plot and characters make all the difference.

Wing Commander ®: Privateer ™

Truehare's rating:
250

Truehare says: My first "open space" game and still the best. I got so involved exploring the Gemini sector and doing random missions, I never finished the main game. It does a great job of making you like or hate the various factions... Damn those Retros!

Longest Journey, The

Truehare's rating:
250

Truehare says: Been a long time since I played this. I don't remember much of the plot. But I do remember the feeling of uncovering it bit by bit, being drawn into the game's universe, the awe of learning that... *Ahem* I should go play it again. So should you.

Beyond Good & Evil™

Truehare's rating:
250

Truehare says: Great game, wonderful graphics and soundtrack. The story draws you in. Listen closely to the songs with lyrics: You'll swear you can almost understand what they are saying, but it's gibberish. Makes you feel immersed in a familiar, alien world.

Evil Genius

Truehare's rating:
250

Truehare says: Ok, so this is more a it's-6am-I-have-to-get-to-work kind of immersion. Still, it's a deliciously addictive game that is better than its big brother Dungeon Keeper (a damn good game in its own right). Also, the atmosphere feels just perfect.

Waxworks

Truehare's rating:
250

Truehare says: Something about this one just draws me in. I could never play the Elvira games for more than a few gruesome deaths, but I beat this one after years trying. It's hard to justify this entry in the list, it just works for me. And the deaths are awesome!

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.
