GOG Winter Sale recommendations
because we all need more games that we don't play… xD
First, sorry for not posting anything yesterday. I had to go away for the day, and I didn't have anything to post this quick. Of course the posting will continue through the rest of December.
I though I'd collect some retro favorites from the current GOG sale. Not everything has Linux support, but most of them are playable on Linux anyway. Your best bet is Lutris.
Since Wolfenstein and Doom is not on sale for some reason (thanks Bethesda!), I will start with the Original Strife: Veteran Edition, for less than a euro, and 90% off, this is a steal. Note: multiplayer is only for GOG, and you need the GOG Galaxy for multiplayer. Strife trailer
Star Wars Episode whoknowsthenumber is here, but for me it ended with Return of the Jedi, so for me the '90s games are the best, like Dark Forces, which is the first episode of the Jedi Knight series, featuring Kyle Katarn, a former Empire employee, turned mercenary, turned Rebel hire, who stole the plains for the Death Star. His story is amazing, and worth playing the game. On GOG we get a manual with a full guide of levels and shit, and we definitely help it, because this game is one of the best of the 90s level design!

Rebel Assault I-II is one the best full FMV games of the early days of gaming, with not so good acting, but absolutely SW atmosphere with music, and sound effects all from the movies.
If you want to give Disney some money, do it this way, they may listen and continue with Jedi Order, and The Mandalorian.
Let's start with Heroes of Might and Magic series - personally I am fan of the 2nd one as this one I played the most.
As for RTS, I just love Dungeon Keeper and being the bad guy, and DK is always on sale: Dungeon Keeper Gold and Dungeon Keeper 2. One of the amazing feature was, that you could posses creature in first person, and lead your army to invade the enemy. The other one that you could slap your workers to make them more obedient. Hahahha [evil laugh]. Sadly it is another series that was buried by EA, just like Command and Conquer.
Want more Star Wars in your life? Here is Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds Saga, which used the Age of Empire engine.
Master of Orion 1+2 games are also on sale.
One of my favorite is System Shock 2. And I would certainly put the Thief series in it, since you role play as a thief, hahah.
And Deux Ex GOTY too. Come on if you don't play these games you miss out the best in history!
Something, something Postal
Want to see more?
Honestly I could spend hours to collect some of the best games in history, but I think you just head to GOG and search yourself!
