My 30+ year gaming history, AKA count the CPUs4votes I like it
atticusfinchesq says: (early 80s, Atari 400) THE closest thing to pen and paper RPGs. Download to discover why Treyarch paid homage to this classic by including a (somewhat playable) version in CoD Black Ops. A true computer gaming classic.
atticusfinchesq says: (early 80s, Commodore 64) I spent a decent amount of time at my friend Patrick's house, sometimes playing Raid Over Moscow, sometimes Winter Games, but mostly playing Ultima 3. One of the most engaging games of its time.
atticusfinchesq says: (early 80s, Commodore 64) Also played this a few times on my friend Patrick's Commodore. Wasn't crazy about it but it was the cutting edge of graphic technology at the time. This was back when floppy disks were...floppy.

atticusfinchesq says: (early 90s, Super Nintendo) This was one of the first games I ever wanted to play start to finish. That's since become a goal for everything I play. Yea, my life's been a lot less productive. Fun game, reminded me of Atari's Star Raiders.
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.
