What was wrong with me when I bought these174votes I like it
doctorfrog says: It's not the early 2000's anymore. I don't have time to dedicate to starting up a new game of Arcanum. Who cares if I never beat it? Do I really need to own this game that I know I'll never finish?
doctorfrog says: Ok, so I didn't learn my lesson from Arcanum. I don't even have a nostalgia excuse here: I've never played this game, ever. What was my reason? Oh yes, I liked the soundtrack. But I *have* the soundtrack already, do I need the game also?
doctorfrog says: What? I mean, I like the idea of trading games, but I never really get past the tutorials in them. And now I hear that Patrician 3 is actually the one to get, since it's basically the more complete version of 2? Why did I buy this?
doctorfrog says: All right, I'm clearly not thinking straight here. Just because a game is on sale doesn't mean I *have* to get it. Good job there, you now own the complete collection of a series of games you'll never play. Oh wait, Patrician 4 just came out...
doctorfrog says: I've never played an RTS past the first few levels, because I stink at RTS's. But maybe this one will be different. Maybe this will be The One. Maybe... wait, why does this look like an open source Linux game?
doctorfrog says: Weren't you paying attention when you bought, installed, and uninstalled Earth 2150? That you never play RTS's? Or does buying TA somehow absolve you from buying (and quickly uninstalling) Earth 2150?
doctorfrog says: Look, just because you pirated this game in 1998 doesn't mean you need to buy it now. ("No sign of crime around here.") Because you're going to get right around where half your warehouses burn down, and quit again.
doctorfrog says: All right, you literally have no excuse here. You *know* that GOG hasn't fixed all the bugs in this version, and that it *will not run* properly on anything you own. So don't buy it. Don't... ok now this one's on your shelf, good job.
doctorfrog says: If only Newtonian physics could have somehow kept your keyboard sliding off your desk to keep you from buying this Good Old Game You Ain't Gonna Ever Complete (GOGYAGEC)
doctorfrog says: I know, it's free. But you don't even *want* it! Don't add it, you'll never be able to remove it...
doctorfrog says: Wait, you aren't playing OpenTTD, the vastly superior free open source clone of the better game preceding this one, why are you buying Locomotion? Is it because you can't get the song out of your head? Is it because it's $1.50 on sale?
doctorfrog says: I really liked the color blue that day. Blue blue blue. In the future, there is only blue UI elements.
doctorfrog says: This looks like a great game to play with your friends! Your picky, griping, friends, who have no patience for trying to get an "old game with bad graphics" working over a virtual LAN! So of course you're going to buy it! Wait, I wasn't serious...
doctorfrog says: Look, I realize there were games you didn't get to play as a child, but it just doesn't make sense to buy games from *other* peoples' deprived childhoods! Surely, you don't need a copy of a game you've never heard of before?
doctorfrog says: Total Annihilation, with Dragons! You know, the game you didn't play, that didn't have dragons? Well, this one has dragons, I guess. So, buy it, of course. For the... soundtrack. And for the dragons. Won't someone PLEASE think of the dragons?
doctorfrog says: I have a wallet, and must buy. Harlan Ellison (who lives inside my wallet) threatened me with a tiny knife if I didn't.
doctorfrog says: The important thing is not that you actually play any of the games you buy, only that you buy them. They'll toss a hard drive into your coffin as they lower you into the earth, it'll hit you in your solar plexus, you'll sit up, scare the lot of 'em.
doctorfrog says: Differing from the TV show, "The McLaughlin Group," The Blood Group's lineup were armed with straight razors and sawed-off shotguns. And dumb opinions. Then they made a terrible video game that had nothing to do with anything. So I bought it.
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.
