AquaticIdealist says: War is not won by the efforts of a few. If any game can demonstrate this concept, it's this one. You are one of many brave pilots of the GTA, fighting to protect humanity from the horrors that lurk in space. Suit up, pilot, we're counting on you!
AquaticIdealist says: With the FS2 Open engine installed, this game becomes a true masterpiece. Send your little fighter against hordes of awe-inspiring capital ships... And win! Never forget that you're not alone: the whole GTVA fights with you!
AquaticIdealist says: Do you remember what it was like as a child? That sense of wonder and adventure? Botanicula does, and here you'll find a great tale of nature and wonder. Enjoy!
AquaticIdealist says: An adventure game with a twist that will smack you in the face. That, and Science, Mystery, Police Officers, and... Unpredictable Nerds?
AquaticIdealist says: A series of short adventure games that boast a hilarious cast. Players will certainly enjoy Joey's banter, and the mysterious spirits that plague New York.
AquaticIdealist says: Fling yourself across the galaxy, facing unbearable trials. Pick up strange alien crewmen along the way, and jury-rig new guns on that awesome starship of yours. But beware... The hardships you'll face are no joke.
AquaticIdealist says: Although this game relies on its multiplayer, the single-player skirmishes give you a good taste of the mayhem. Do you like watching your troops fall upon your foes and slaughter them brutally (or hilariously) in a RTS game? Look no further!
AquaticIdealist says: Since I never played Castlevania, but played Mega Man to death when I was a kid, imagine Mega Man replaced by Indiana Jones. The enemies are still annoying and your range is limited by the whip, but the setting and style can't be beat. Enjoy!
AquaticIdealist says: There are few games that let you enjoy the thrill of nuclear war and yet realize the horrors of nuclear winter. Your fleets and missile silos can exterminate your enemies... But what about those millions of people you just made disappear?
AquaticIdealist says: Have you ever wanted to get away from it all? Kate Walker's journey lets you roam through lonely lands, and her conclusion is a clever solution for those who can't stand the daily grind of their boring workplace.
AquaticIdealist says: If you don't have Civilization IV and its Planetfall mod, or even if you do, play this game. After all, those Drones NEED you, administrator. They look up to you! Why would you abandon them? Humanity needs your guidance more than ever.
AquaticIdealist says: The game to turn to when you really need an Arcade racer.
AquaticIdealist says: Help achieve an old man's dying wish. Guaranteed to make anyone's heart melt. ... If you're with me, then everything's alright.
AquaticIdealist says: A Diablo Clone that oozes class. Yahtzee's review of this one might point out the endless clicking, but you'll be too busy slaughtering hordes of monsters to notice. The barrels of identify scrolls and the bodyguard (I mean pet) certainly help too.
AquaticIdealist says: When Galaga gets a whiff of crack and fuses with your music collection, Symphony is born... And you'll love every minute of it!
AquaticIdealist says: With an awesome Caribbean-themed soundtrack and an extensive political simulator, you can create your own Castroist Cuba!
AquaticIdealist says: There's nothing quite like watching artillery on overkill. Advance Wars and Battle for Wesnoth fans, eat your heart out.
AquaticIdealist says: Rip through Satan's army with some awesome weapons, including the gun that shoots shurikens and lightning. Meet a variety of creatures and slaughter them. If you never played an arcade shooter, this game'll help enlighten you.
AquaticIdealist says: Ever wondered why you should REALLY check up on real estate? Have you been itching to wander Dracula's mansion? Learn why this classic adventure game by Roberta Williams was banned in several countries!
AquaticIdealist says: The Poor Man's World of Warcraft. So much to explore (and kill), so little time. The Main Campaign's kind of short, linear, and not so exciting, but the many expansions (and fan-made ones) will keep you busy.
AquaticIdealist says: Although The Ur Quan Masters is a freeware port of one of the greatest games of all time, this collection lets you experience Star Control 2 in its original glory... And includes Star Control 1 for $6. A must buy!
AquaticIdealist says: When Chess and Mortal Kombat marry, the world rejoices.
AquaticIdealist says: When Civilization meets Age of Empires. Rally your soldiers across the ages as you battle many foes across time. A legend among gamers for good reason: raise your blade/gun/laser rifle, General, your soldiers need you!
AquaticIdealist says: So this is not an easy game, and at times it felt tedious. But, it's an example of a great idea made manifest. Steampunk Fantasy! Orcs in fighter jets! The world (setting) alone makes this game a must play, even if it's an arduous RPG.
AquaticIdealist says: Now, it is true that later games in the series have better graphics, ships, and weapons but if one has a limit in one's hard drive or an older PC this duo might work for everyone. The grandfather of one of the greatest genres ever: the space sim.
AquaticIdealist says: Somewhat overpriced, but an entertaining Tower Defense / RPG hybrid nonetheless. There's a free demo, so if you're debating whether to give this a try you can check it out!
AquaticIdealist says: Some make dynasties out of conquest and warfare, but this game teaches you how to make dynasties the more, ahem, subtle or even unscrupulous way. So, "merchant," what's it gonna be?
AquaticIdealist says: Now I might be biased as a longtime Romance of the Three Kingdoms fan, but a game that lets you engage in diplomacy, war, and control/fortify a large empire is a great plus. Unlike the venerable Civilization series, this game has RTS style battles!
AquaticIdealist says: A precursor to Dawn of War II. No resource gathering or base building, just pure combat. Decent voice acting helps liven the experience! In the not so far future, there is only violent corporate takeover! ... Or jihad if that's your thing.
AquaticIdealist says: Serve and protect. Unlike other shooters, you are a cop, not a killing machine. With many objectives and a squad of men under your command, you can keep the streets of LA relatively safe. Do note that it's not easy to serve and protect!
AquaticIdealist says: The game that lets you fulfill your dreams of becoming a CIA agent. If I told you anything else, I'd have to kill you. :D
AquaticIdealist says: I once played part of this game as a kid. The game crashed before I could finish, but even after over ten years, I have not forgotten it. This game is old and the story seems cliche, but it's full of puzzles and is a rare Real Time adventure game!
AquaticIdealist says: Grim Fandango's classy and somehow more humorous little brother. With a large cast of dolls, wacky humor, and various puzzles (and interesting ways to solve them) you'll find yourself giggling the entire way through. Pricey, Short, Funny, and Cute.
AquaticIdealist says: With a variety of enemies to fight across multiple time periods, this is a game with style. With a poor camera and short levels it might not be that replayable, but it's a game that represents excellent graphics for its time. Don't miss this.
AquaticIdealist says: Might have a less friendly interface than its predecessor, but manages to beat the already epic soundtrack of NWN1 and present its own excellent cast. Now you have your own squad of heroes face off against great threats to the safety of the land.
AquaticIdealist says: Ok, the puzzles are mostly easy but a couple can be frustrating. Item searches can drive you mad. But, for all its flaws, this game has an excellent sense of atmosphere, a decent cast, and kept this gamer immersed the whole time. A Must Play!
AquaticIdealist says: Muscles, Muscles Everywhere! And fruit! A neat puzzle game that demonstrates the difficulties of evolution.
AquaticIdealist says: Do you enjoy a challenge? Or maybe your hand-eye coordination needs practice? This game uses deceptively simple gameplay and forces players to pay careful attention... It won't take prisoners! Once your cursor falls out of position, you die.
AquaticIdealist says: It's free, and comes with hours of arcade goodness. Ignoring it should be a criminal offense.
AquaticIdealist says: GASP! An Asian main protagonist! That's something quite new (to this Asian reviewer). Now, if you want a game with action right off the bat, this isn't for you. But if you want to have a sense of adventure, or a great story, look no further!
AquaticIdealist says: Inheritance is everything, warrior. And your clan members must be avenged!... But Charon wants his toll, and the castle-like dungeon is an incredibly dangerous place...
AquaticIdealist says: Some games are meant to be fun. Some are meant to tell a story. Thankfully, this is one of the latter. Even if life's 'daily grind' is boring enough for you, you should still play this game. Yes, it's repetitive but it forces you to focus and think.
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.
