When Story is Key

GOGmix by Trekky's avatarTrekky 1vote

Freespace + Expansion

Trekky's rating:
250

Trekky says: Brilliant space-combat gameplay coupled with perhaps the best storytelling in a (non-adventure/rpg) video game ever.

Freespace 2

Trekky's rating:
250

Trekky says: The Sequel does not disappoint. More of the same brilliance.

MDK

Trekky's rating:
250

Trekky says: Excellent action and some excellent surreal comedy (Including "The World's Most Interesting Bomb"!).

Beyond Good and Evil™

Trekky's rating:
250

Trekky says: An excellent example of how a somewhat over-simplified action gameplay experience is completely justified by a captivating story with strong characters. A modern classic.

Leisure Suit Larry

Trekky's rating:
250

Trekky says: The series that introduced me to adventure gaming and the art of game storytelling (back when I was way too young to be playing them). The text-based input system and sudden-deaths of the earliest parts may deter some.

Space Quest 1+2+3

Trekky's rating:
250

Trekky says: Of all of Sierra's adventure classics, the SQ series for me has stood up to the test of time the best. Great sci-fi humour.

removeupdown
or

Space Quest 4+5+6

Trekky's rating:
250

Trekky says: More great sci-fi humour.

removeupdown
or

Police Quest 1+2+3+4

Trekky's rating:
250

Trekky says: A more serious take on story-driven adventure from Sierra. Not my favorite of theirs and some of the action-oriented gameplay in the first one is a bit too challenging for my liking, but there is great writing to be enjoyed here. Especially liked #2.

Alone in the Dark 1+2+3

Trekky's rating:
250

Trekky says: The birth of Survival-Horror. Quite tough by today's standards.

removeupdown
or

Beneath a Steel Sky

Trekky's rating:
250

Trekky says: Indie adventure classic. And can't argue with the price.

removeupdown

I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream

Trekky's rating:
250

Trekky says: Possibly the most atmospheric dead-serious point'n'click adventure ever.

Wing Commander™ 1+2

Trekky's rating:
250

Trekky says: Before the Freespace series, this was the king of (arcade-ish) space-combat and action game story strength.

Wing Commander™ 3 Heart of the Tige...

Trekky's rating:
250

Trekky says: The scifi classic even survided the FMV-graze. The muti-million Hollywood production manages mostly to not impare the experience.

removeupdown
or

Wing Commander™ 4: The Price of Fre...

Trekky's rating:
250

Trekky says: The story is still great, but the game is quite frankly too hard.

removeupdown
or

Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver

Trekky's rating:
250

Trekky says: Solid 3rd person fantasy action with a surprisingly deep story-line.

removeupdown
or

Sam & Max Save the World

Trekky's rating:
250

Trekky says: The long-long-awaited continuation of the point'n'click classic Hit the Road, the low-budget episode-based production manages to capture quite an impressive lot of the old Lucas Magic..

removeupdown
or

Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space

Trekky's rating:
250

Trekky says: The second "season" of S&M adventures in on par with the first.

removeupdown
or

Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse

Trekky's rating:
250

Trekky says: The writing has suffered the third time around but the adventure and humor are still solid.

removeupdown
or

Trine Enchanted Edition

Trekky's rating:
250

Trekky says: The story is not _massively_ strong here, but the gameplay is very solid and the plot's presentation and atmosphere put me in mind of childhood days in the arcade spent trashing Golden Axe, and that just can't be a bad thing.

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.
