Timeless RPG's + some strategy and adventure

GOGmix by Alchas's avatarAlchas 15votes

Neverwinter Nights Diamond

Alchas's rating:
250

Alchas says: Though the official campaign is pretty bad, the expansions are decent. The main draw of NWN however is multiplayer, and the various persistent worlds. They offer a free alternative to MMORPG's in a small scale and generally more focus on RP.

Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obs...

Alchas's rating:
250

Alchas says: One of my favourite CRPG's. The story is excellent, and there is a lot of interesting side content. The mechanics are flawed, which makes the game a bit less enjoyable, but it is easy to look past it. This game should have had a sequel!

Baldur's Gate: The Original Saga

Alchas's rating:
250

Alchas says: What is there to say? An epic series, and a must have for CRPG fans, particularly because of it's engaging storyline and living game world. BG is less accessible than BG 2, and not quite as polished, but still an excellent game.

Planescape: Torment

Alchas's rating:
250

Alchas says: Along with Fallout, this is one of the masterpieces Black Isle Studios created. It has a unique story and setting, and the dialogue has a lot of depth. It's the kind of game you can replay several times, and still discover something new.

Divine Divinity

Alchas's rating:
250

Alchas says: The first, and by far the best game in the series. Though it looks and plays a lot like Diablo, it has all the story and content expected from a "real" CRPG, and it is fairly non linear. Great music too, which really adds to the immersion.

Beyond Divinity

Alchas's rating:
250

Alchas says: It's a passable game, but I only recommend it for those who really liked the first one and want to explore the game world a bit more. It is much more combat focused than the first one, has a convulted skill system, and a disappointing storyline.

Gothic

Alchas's rating:
250

Alchas says: Not quite as good as the second game, but a somewhat unique CRPG, well worth a try. The combat system may put some off, and the dialogue and story can be lacking at times. If you can look past the flaws though, it is a very entertaining game.

Gothic 2 Gold Edition

Alchas's rating:
250

Alchas says: The world feels more colourful and alive than in the first game, and it is also bigger. If you liked the first one, you'll love this. That said, it does retain some of the flaws of Gothic, dialogue lacking depth, and a sometimes strange storyline.

Icewind Dale Complete

Alchas's rating:
250

Alchas says: Dungeoncrawling in the Baldurs Gate engine. Fun game, but very combat focused, and lacking in side content. I found the game a bit dull at times, but generally interesting and varying enough to get me by, and enjoy the ride. It is no BG however.

Icewind Dale 2 Complete

Alchas's rating:
250

Alchas says: I liked this more than the first game. Though almost as combat focused, it offers more varying environments and challenges, instead of just dungeons. Some people disliked the hybrid 2e and 3e Dungeons & Dragons ruleset, but I found it refreshing.

Lionheart: Legacy of the Crusader

Alchas's rating:
250

Alchas says: This could have been a great game. The mechanics needed some work, but the main flaw is that the game is unfinished. The first half of it is great and offers combat, dialogue and exploration, but the second half is just a long series of dungeons.

Might and Magic® 6-pack Limited Edition

Alchas's rating:
250

Alchas says: (4 stars for the pack, 5 stars for MM 6.) I haven't played them all, but the ones I have played are very good. The first ones may feel dated, but definetly playable. 6 and 7 are the best ones in the series, though sadly 7 isn't included here.

Two Worlds

Alchas's rating:
250

Alchas says: A somewhat bland CRPG that could have been a lot better. The dialogue and story aren't very engaging, but combat and exploration are fun, at least at first. If you enjoy games like Gothic, you could try it out, but it's far from a masterpiece.

Longest Journey, The

Alchas's rating:
250

Alchas says: Excellent, and in many ways refreshing adventure game with a very engaging story. Warmly recommended to fans of traditional adventure games, and a good game to start with if you haven't played one before.

Sanitarium

Alchas's rating:
250

Alchas says: This is my favourite adventure game of all time. Very mysterious, unsettling, and engaging. I recommend it to all fans of adventure games who want to try something different, or anyone who likes mysteries and psychological horror.

Age of Wonders: Shadow Magic

Alchas's rating:
250

Alchas says: Great turn based strategy, similar to Heroes of Might & Magic, but IMO better, because of more tactical combat. All three AoW games are great, but I like this one the most. (Shadow Magic is practically just an expansion of Wizards Throne.)

Heroes of Might and Magic® 3: Complete

Alchas's rating:
250

Alchas says: Best game in the series, but personally I find HoM&M to be a bit overrated, mainly because of the dull combat that only amounts to massing numbers. Apart from that, a very good strategy game, even if I recommend Age of Wonders more.

King's Bounty: The Legend

Alchas's rating:
250

Alchas says: A good fantasy strategy game that closely resembles Heroes of Might & Magic. Sadly it lacks multiplayer, which was always the main draw of that series, but the single player campaign, while thin on story, is still a lot of fun to get through.

Stronghold Crusader HD

Alchas's rating:
250

Alchas says: A fun and very original strategy game that focuses on castle building. You build a castle, a town, and defenses, before massing an army to take down your enemy's castle. Slower than most RTS games, and the game feels refreshingly unique.

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.
