The PC Games I Grew Up With4votes I like it
thespambot says: Space Quest 2 is the first adventure game I ever played. A friend and I spend days taking turns at the helm, giving each other suggestions until we were finally able to crack it. We discovered the rest of the series later, and love it just as much.
thespambot says: Space Quest IV kicked off the multimedia explosion for me. It was the first adventure game I played with full voice acting (which is fantastic, by the way).
thespambot says: A friend of mine got Red Baron as a gift for his Tandy 386. Even though we were terrible at it, we couldn't stop playing. Fortunately, the game scales all the way down to "no-damage" if you are as bad as we were.
thespambot says: I would see the opening cinematic for Another Wold on a loop at Sears. I had no idea what it was, but I knew I had to play it. When I finally got it (SNES version), it blew my mind. The lack of HUD and trippiness of the game made it stick with me.
thespambot says: Finally a 3D game that makes good on it's promise of a fully 3D environment. The addition of the Z-axis made Descent really stand out in a world that was being inundated with Doom Clones.
thespambot says: When a friend tried to sell me on Insterstate '76 I was skeptical. Car combat games had started becoming very prevalent at the time thanks to hits like Twisted Metal. Interstate '76 ended up being far and away our favorite multiplayer game that year.
thespambot says: After Space Quest, the prospect of more Sierra adventure games had my attention. A friend lent me his KQ collection and 5 & 6 in particular stood out. 6 because of how well it's designed & 5 because of how bizarre the puzzles were.
thespambot says: My neighbor kid had this on 5.25 floppy disks. It was so bizarre, he couldn't help but share it. Think Myst but without the plot. You just sort of wander and explore. Turns out its a great kids game because of this.
thespambot says: Another game that blew me away when I first saw it. The pre-rendered background were like nothing I'd ever seen before. So much creativity went into the world of Myst. The puzzles are ridiculously tough, though. Be warned.
thespambot says: This is one I've been waiting for! Police Quest was the very first adventure game I ever played. I just wish the collection contained the original version of 1 and not just the remake.
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.
