write1 says: A brilliant FPS that's also somehow an RPG, and an adventure game, a sim... It does this by using the full power of the keyboard and mouse, making a game not possible to play on the console. My personal GOAT. Make sure to look for a graphics mod;)
write1 says: A fun settlers/sim city crossbreed game set in Roman times. If you like the idea of building thriving Roman cities from scratch this is the game for you.
write1 says: Great indy game, that's unique, period. Play as a hollywoodesque hacker. Breaking into various systems. There is a ipad port that isn't bad, however the virtual keyboard and touch detection simply isn't as good as a keyboard and mouse.
write1 says: Another fun indy, FTL seems to be the only good starship commander sim since Starflight.
write1 says: I know this one gets mixed reviews but it's a guilty pleasure game for me. Basically a Settlers type game, it has some innovations, such as a needing to feed your peasants and soldiers, but limitations in levels and goals.
write1 says: Wow. This one takes me back. As I recall this game came out relatively early in the RTS boom, with the big innovation being that the sides were asymmetrical - unique units trees and wildly different design, and different structures.
write1 says: A classic! Solve mousetrap type puzzles with bunch of random items and an impressive physics engine (for its time). There are a few newer games similar, especially on itunes, but none compare to the Incredible Machine series.
write1 says: I mentioned this game earlier and for good reason. Have you ever wanted to be the captain of a Star Trek ship? Well, these games are probably as close as you'll ever get. Brilliant in so many ways, it's difficult to list them all. So I won't.
write1 says: Classic Sierra adventure games, but with an RPG twist. the QfG series was surprisingly deep compared to the other Quest games of the time, and included adventure style puzzles as well as a reasonable combat system.
write1 says: Well, to be fair, FPS games are a dime a dozen on both PC and consoles. But lets face it, keyboard+mouse>gamepad. A high-speed-who-cares-about-story-blow-everything-up remake of a classic FPS makes that abundantly clear.
write1 says: Not quite as all conquering as it's more famous sister series Civilization, Colonization is an exceptionally good game in it's own right. Colonize the new world, and if you're good enough, found a new nation!
write1 says: Just play it. Seriously. Can't make it any clearer. MOO2 is up there with Deus Ex and Civilization 2 as the best games ever made, and MOO is literally the origin of the term '4x' as a genre.
write1 says: A weird, weird game. Good, but weird. I guess it would be classed as third person action / RTS? You use summoned creatures to fight, using souls as currency. To get more souls, you sacrifice enemy creatures to whichever god you're working for. Weird.
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.
