The very best space games..sims,strategy,shooters.29votes I like it
Daehawk says: Since I can't add Tie Fighter to this list.....yet....this is the best space game you can get your hands on. The graphics are still beautiful in this day and age and the game play is the type of "just one more mission" at 3 am :)
Daehawk says: And of course you can't play the 2nd Freespace until you play the first! :) This is the game that first showed us what a great space sim could be after Wing Commander. It has better graphics, better controls, and is plain fun.
Daehawk says: Of course this isn't set in space but it might as well be. Give it a chance and I think you'll be glad you did. It doesn't hurt that it is gorgeous to look at. Can you tell I'm a graphic wh#@!? :)
Daehawk says: After a small amount of invested time you'll get used to the controls and game play and find a real gem of a space sim there. For it's time it was beautiful but those times are past. It's still great fun though. Be ready for some serious fun.
Daehawk says: This one is a true space shooter. The graphics will blow you away and the missions ramp up gradually as you get used to the game play. Steal some fighters, help out friendly npcs, or maybe just go all pirate and be a bad ass.
Daehawk says: My favorite game EVER. And it's 16 years old! This is the only space strategy game you'll ever need. After playing these two games no other space strategy game could be as good. These are space games turned up to 11. Dated yes, beyond fun yes!
Daehawk says: You start with a mother ship and a pair of fighters. From there take missions to earn money and buy new weapons for your mother ship, new fighters, and new pilots to fly them. Be a space mercenary and rule the galaxy.
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.
