To be fair... GOG doesn't really have anything good to offer for "racing" games.

Default ARMA: Cold War Assault

The newest garbagfire GoG gives away.


Ok, this is kinda harsh. It's probably one of the First Person Shooter games.


You can't fuck up hard with a First Person Shooter Game. Action game? FPS. RPG? FPS. Adventure game? FPS.

EVERYTHING is FPS nowdays, and they are built with some version of the Quake-engine, so they all give me motion-sickness, so fuck'em.

I'm kind of confused... are you talking about an id Software game, or are you talking about ARMA: Cold War Assault? There have been lots of FPS games released between Wolfenstein 3D and ARMA: Cold War Assault, so I'm not sure what you mean by "one of the First Person Shooter games".

A:CWA is a first person shooter.
There were sooo many FPS since the dawn of time, it's hard to find the difference between two nowdays, as all of them look and work the same. And everything is FPS, independently from genre. Obviously because it is cheap to make, no idea needed, no story needed, you just put on some new skins, and voila, can go to the shelves.

RPGs hang on the story.
Or should be. Of course if you just make an FPS, and your RPG is as much rpg as eg. Diablo... Then you don't have an rpg, you just shoot stuff.

Default Shadowrun

"Triogy". Whatever that means.


What's with the Shadowrun franchise anyway?


They had books for a time... And a p&p rpg where we always started with a shitload of money, because what else, this resulted everyone having the same character, easily optimised...


So this games any good?


And from the other side, doesn't the whole pack cost, like a bunch of money? Ok, I wouldn't buy these, but that's not the point, ok?

First part, Shadowrun Returns, tried to be turn-based tactics with light RPG progression ("light" in terms of "no much happens aside of battle, and no much to select). Plot mostly suit to glue tactics together. Mostly good game, even if somewhat boring in the second part. Must be better, if you are very fond of tactics.

Second part, Dragonfall, hit the sweet spot for me. It's equally divided for non-combat and combat RPG: some encounters can be battles, or can be avoided, your stats influence chatting, and there are quite a lot of chatting. So what is "good RPG with tactical battles" for me. Highly recommended.

Third part, Hong Kong, in some sense is a mirror copy of Returns. It reverse tactical/RPG scale: now it is heavy-chatting RPG with some tactical battles thrown for good measure (and you can avoid most of battles if chat right). Can be boring in the second part of game, but can be enjoyable, if you like heavy reading.

P.S. Also, if it can be recommendation: Shadowrun games made by Harebrained games, that consisted from the old creators of the Shadowrun and Battletech franchises.

Default Syberia 1 + 2

I heared the story was good for its time, but the controls are really clunky. Or was that just for the first one, and the second was trashi n general?


Either way, some 60+ hours to pick 'em up.


I wonder why they never give away something like Might and Magic 9, or one of the early Diablo clones...
Well, those later games don't even work on win 10, meaning they won't work at all, but ... uhm ... Nevermind.

Default Wanderlust: Transsiberian

67+ more hours.


It looks like an e-gamebook, and not a very action-packed one, but who knows, and it's free.
