Vivid Virtual Vacations

Riven: The Sequel to Myst

coquetuille's rating:
250

coquetuille says: Even to this day, Riven is peerless when it comes to crafting a coherent, convincing, surreal, yet deviously challenging puzzle experience. Go on a vacation to a land that does not exist and gaze at the majesty of it all.

Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition

coquetuille's rating:
250

coquetuille says: Similar to Riven in harshness, yet quite differently laid out, this puzzle platformer gets most of its draw from the wonderful landscapes and sense of wonder.

Outcast

coquetuille's rating:
250

coquetuille says: Some sort of spiritual successor to Another World, Outcast provided players with a marvelously elaborate and convincing fantasy world eleven years ago. Charming, unique, and wonderful, this one captured my imagination for weeks.

Uru: Complete Chronicles

coquetuille's rating:
250

coquetuille says: Few games are as much about the vacation as the Myst series, and Uru: Complete Chronicles provides a number of wondrously imagined spots and challenging puzzles. Stands now as a tome of what might have been in Uru Live, but worth playing on its own.

Longest Journey, The

coquetuille's rating:
250

coquetuille says: The pacing in this one can be off at times, and the game as a whole could have benefited considerably by some more constraint, but what's here is still a charming sci-fi-meets-fantasy adventure with an impressively independent heroine.

Beyond Good and Evil™

coquetuille's rating:
250

coquetuille says: Part of the same exclusive club as TLJ in that the heroine is not in the game to show her flesh, but rather to get stuff done. Wonderfully imaginative, although the gameplay itself is probably not the main draw. Bonus points for photographing whales.

Giants: Citizen Kabuto

coquetuille's rating:
250

coquetuille says: I don't know whether this world actually makes sense or not, but it looks so good that I don't particularly care. The best game in Planet Moon's portfolio, although the game was a bit too out there to become a best-seller.

MDK

coquetuille's rating:
250

coquetuille says: This one came out of nowhere, marrying the aesthetic of Tim Burton with H.R. Giger, all interspersed with some rather slapstick humor. Quite hard, but marvelous fun.

Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee

coquetuille's rating:
250

coquetuille says: Another rather oddball one, the aesthetic in this one is muddy and alien to the point where it's almost incredible how well the game caught on with the audience.

Psychonauts

coquetuille's rating:
250

coquetuille says: All over the place when it comes to the platforming experience—Super Mario this ain't—but the crazy locations and wonderful psychic summer camp setting makes this one memorable in its own right.

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.
