Total Annihilation: Commander Pack

valgaav's rating:
250

valgaav says: Around the year 2001 the game fell in to my hands almost by itself. While running it the first time - motivated by an appetite for playing something new - I didn't thought it will become one of my favourite real-time strategy games. Epic.

Unreal Gold

valgaav's rating:
250

valgaav says: A rival of Quake 2, that surpassed it in every aspect. The graphics, playability and level design were the obvious strengths. But there was something else - the atmosphere. An immense sense of loneliness on an alien world.

Unreal Tournament GOTY

valgaav's rating:
250

valgaav says: The only thing that Unreal lacked, was a good multiplayer mode. Unreal Tournament was designed specifically for multiplayer. Very dynamic and addictive gameplay, again great level design and better weapon firepower balance.

Simon the Sorcerer

valgaav's rating:
250

valgaav says: A lot of absurd humour (similar to Monthy Pythons concept of comic quality) and an interesting (but pretty simple in fact) story to justify it. Actually it was the second game of the series I played, but the mixed chronology didn't spoiled the fun.

Simon the Sorcerer 2

valgaav's rating:
250

valgaav says: Probably the first point and click adventure game I ever played and I still remember it as very pleasant and playable. There's something in the raw, pixelized graphics that forces you to go deep in to the story. Unexplainable.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six®

valgaav's rating:
250

valgaav says: While playing modern tactical shooters I get the filling, that their creators decided to minimise the level of swearing and anger emitted by the player. Wasn't the difficulty the point of it all? Play this game and grow some chest hair.

Myst: Masterpiece Edition

valgaav's rating:

valgaav says: Computer games are art. A completely new form of art, going further that being just syncretic - creating interactive virtual worlds from scratch. Myst is a standalone proof of this fact. Beautiful and atmospheric.

MDK

valgaav's rating:

valgaav says: A game made for only one purpose - intense action and pure fun. Those goals ware completed. Expect a lot of explosions, shooting, boss fights and a lot of absurd jokes build in to the game by the authors. Catharsis.

MDK 2

valgaav's rating:

valgaav says: Seems a little less intense that the first installment, but that's just an illusion. The gameplay was divided between three playable characters (each needing a different approach) which made the game less monotonous. Catharsis x3

Longest Journey, The

valgaav's rating:

valgaav says: Another great adventure game. The artistic atmosphere of Myst (the longer gameplay allows to go even further) in a point and click costume. Has a feel of a good novel. Science-fiction meets the world of childish imagination - mesmerizing.

Incredible Machine Mega Pack, The

valgaav says: Almost everyone wanted to be a inventor as a child. Building complex devices out of "typical" building blocks. This game allows you to fulfil those fantasies. An extremely logical game.

Evolva

valgaav's rating:

valgaav says: As original as it was, Evolva had a lot of wasted potential. The cardinal sin - monotony. However mixing genes of your warriors and a living alien world, that kind of reminds the lonely atmosphere of Unreal... It's not a waste of time.

Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition

valgaav's rating:

valgaav says: This game is something more than a simple shooter. It's a legendary symbol of action, style and pure awesomeness. It got old but didn't lose the charm it had in 1996. Playable and very nostalgic.

Baldur's Gate: The Original Saga

Baldur's Gate 2 Complete

Lords of Magic: Special Edition

valgaav's rating:

valgaav says: A turn-based strategy game, that surprised me with it's addictive nature and an interesting world. I never actually got sucked in to the HoM&M games, and maybe that's why this title gave me solid weeks of something ambitious to do.

Nox™

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.
