Worlds worth exploring5votes I like it
Shadsy says: The greatest of all adventure games. The islands of Riven are rich with secrets and artifacts from the lives of others. Immersive beyond comparison.
Shadsy says: One of the most gorgeous game environments ever. Surreal, striking, and incredible to behold, unlike anything previously put in a game. (But watch out if you aren't a fan of mazes...)
Shadsy says: Beautiful and fragile, Syberia is a transformative story about self-discovery. The setting is alienating, lonely, and cold, but the journey is warm and intimate.
Shadsy says: Anachronox is an unlikely mashup of science fiction and fantasy tropes, glossing over its faults with the strength of its weird setting.
Shadsy says: Miasmata's rough edges only enhance its uncompromising realism. Far from generically gritty, the island of Eden is mystical and worth getting lost in.
Shadsy says: On top of its incredible length and scope, Uru is padded with some of the most complete and ambitious lore of any game universe.
Shadsy says: This is a controversial claim, but The Dig might be the best game by LucasArts. The planet Cocytus combines qualities of the best adventure games: a mysterious world and companions to explore it with.
Shadsy says: Ruling the Orlanthi tribe transports you to a realm with social norms far from ours, a jarring transition that brings instant culture shock.
Shadsy says: Something of a minimalist masterpiece. The titular "world" feels genuinely alien and warps you out of your comfort zone. Watch for the thrilling Colosseum scene.
Shadsy says: Low in production values but big in heart, the Blackwell series is the rare character-driven game with a relatable, modern setting.
Shadsy says: The Avernum pentalogy presents a comprehensive and compelling vision of dueling kingdoms wracked with class inequality.
Shadsy says: The first Oddworld game's dark, weird, and haunting atmosphere is a near-perfect fusion of the series's industrial and naturalistic themes.
Shadsy says: The second Oddworld game, set deeper in the world of industry, is weird and warped portrait of capitalism gone awry. Body horror galore!
Shadsy says: A surprisingly solid and faithful return to the world of Jules Verne's Mysterious Island, made better by its witty and confident protagonist.
Shadsy says: The world of The Journeyman Project is maybe the most practically realistic vision of the future in games: utopian, filled with wondrous technology, but beset by an undercurrent of fear and skepticism.
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.
