Excellent GOG sale going on now

Here is the sales page.

There are always sales going on, but this one is really good. This is for EA games. “But EA games suck.” These weren’t made by EA, but by companies EA gobbled up such as Origin and Bullfrog. These are some of the best games ever made on any platform or any generation.

Ultima 7 and Serpent Isle

These are two games. Ultima 7 + Serpent Isle are my favorite games ever made, and my go to comfort food game. I haven’t stopped playing them since 1992. They shit all over Skyrim as they should since Elder Scrolls was inspired by these games.

Be warned that Ultima 7 is not a min/maxing game revolving around stats, though there are stats. Combat isn’t even implemented well. But what you are playing is a virtual world. Ultima 7 is like a single player MMORPG. People also seem to be put off that the game scrolls ‘choppy’. It’s supposed too. You aren’t supposed to ‘run’ all the time. Making boot disks for that damn Voodoo memory mapper was such a pain in the ass back in the day, but it was so worth it. This game and Serpent Isle being a couple bucks is like Final Fantasy 6 and Dragon Quest 5 being a couple bucks. It is a steal. Don’t believe me? Click the link and look at the reviews.


Alpha Centauri

It is a combination of Civilization with Metroid atmosphere and Master of Orion type unit creation. It is the best strategy game on the PC and has the expansion available. This is also in my top five favorite games. Go get it for a couple bucks.

Ultima Underworld

This isn’t a mainline Ultima game. It is probably the best dungeon crawler ever made. It is two games, Ultima Underworld 1 and 2. For a couple bucks. Go get it.

Best RPG, strategy game, and 3d dungeon crawler RPGs ever made for less than ten dollars? This is the best deal in gaming. Look at the reviews. Just look at them. Those games are to PC gamers as Ocarina of Time or Super Mario Brothers 3 are to Nintendo fans.

There are also other incredible games for sale there too. Dungeon Keeper 2, Sim City 4, Nox (think Diablo 2), Starflight 1 and 2 (what inspired Star Control 2), Bioforge, and more.
