2. DISCIPLES 2: GOLD EDITION (50% OFF) $4.99

You will like this game if you like games like Heroes of Might and Magic and Age of Wonders. It’s that same kind of strategy fantasy game.

This versions includes all of Disciples II including Dark Prophecy, as well as new scenarios, and all the three expansion packs: Guardians of the Light, Servants of the Dark, and Rise of the Elves. The Good Old Games version includes the manuals (3), hi-res wallpapers, in-game soundtrack, artworks, and avatars.

3. DIVINE DIVINITY (50% OFF) $2.99

We’ve promoted this game before and it’s a highly praised diablo-clone action RPG but with its own special style.

The Good Old Games version includes the manual (37 pages), wallpapers, prequel story to Divine Divinity (31 pages), in-game soundtrack, artworks, and avatars.

4. EVIL GENIUS (50% OFF) $4.99

5. FALLOUT (50% OFF) $2.99

Fallout 1 is a game that changed the ways computer RPGs were from that point on. This to me is a game that created a golden age for that genre.

The Good Old Games includes the manual (124 pages), hi-res wallpaper, Fallout series wallpaper, Fallout Bible (205 pages), reference card, in-game soundtrack, original soundtrack, artworks, avatars, and PipBoy avatars. So you get a LOT of Fallout for just $3.

6. GOTHIC 2: GOLD EDITION (50% OFF) $4.99

The Gothic series pack a lot of interesting RPG aspects as well as replayability. For some reason these games have become their own classic series from one of our favorite studios, Jowood.

The Good Old Games version includes manuals (78 pages), hi-res wallpapers, soundtrack, and avatars. Gothic 2: Gold Edition includes Gothic II and the expansion pack Gothic II: Night of the Raven.

7. HEROES OF MIGHT AND MAGIC® 3 (30% OFF) $6.99

Apart from Panzer General, the Heroes of Might and Magic games are awesome turn-based strategy war games. Level up your heroes (generals) which modify the performance of their armies.

The Good Old Games version includes manuals (209 pages), soundtrack, and creature tables. You get the original game as well as the two expansions, Armageddon’s Blade and The Shadow of Death.

8. MYST: MASTERPIECE EDITION (50% OFF) $2.99

If you like adventure games and you haven’t played Myst then I don’t know what to tell you…

The Good Old Games version includes the manual (17 pages).

9. RED BARON PACK (50% OFF) $4.99

People might think World War I is cheesy but flight combat was extreme back in that war. It was a test of pure skill. No bullshit computer to calculate a lock-on from a missile back then. Just the machine, your machine gun (if it worked) and your enemies.

Red Baron is probably one of the top flight combat sims of all time. If you love WWI stuff or flight combat, you need this game.

The Good Old Games version includes manuals (306 pages), maps, and reference cards. In this version you get Red Baron 1, the Red Baron: Mission Builder, and Red Baron 3D (a heavily patched version of Red Baron 2).

10. SIMON THE SORCERER (50% OFF) $2.99

A must for fans of the old Sierra and LucasArts adventure games, although this one was made by Adventure Soft.

The Good Old Games version includes the manual (7 pages), Simon the Sorcerer series wallpaper, as well as being able to pick between playing the subtitled and talking version of the game.

gog.com sale: The Longest Journey & Sanitarium 50% off

Two of the most amazing adventure games from the late 90s on sale by our friends at Good Old Games! You can get either one for about $5 each or slightly under $10 total.

Sanitarium is probably my favorite creepy adventure game. You play as a man with a bandaged head that keep slipping further into insanity and hallucinating being in weird places and being weird beings. The voice acting is phenomenal for the game and it’s an unforgettable experience.

The Longest Journey deals with being a Shifter, someone who can travel to different dimensions. In the game the protagonist has to deal with a growing problem in between a world that’s all about magic and another one that’s all about science and technology.
