The 2022 Gog Summer Sale runs from June 6 to June 27. Gamers around the world can purchase most games available on Gog at up to 90% off. Those who register early can get a free copy of the Sanitarium adventure game on top of that.
Gog is best known for his selection of classic computer games that he prepared to run on modern systems. You can buy games from the 80s, 90s, and newer decades on Gog, and all of them come DRM-free to gamers.
The store is also home to modern games as many indie games as well as triple-A games are available on the platform.
This year’s summer sale has something special to offer: collections for each of the decades, starting with the 80s collection. While you still can browse all games that are on sale, some gamers may like the idea of browsing games released during their childhood.
We’re listing five or ten game recommendations here during the Summer Sale, but this time we thought it would be a good idea to list two games per decade instead of mixing things up a bit. Feel free to highlight your game recommendations in the comments section below:
- Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade ($1.86) – Of all the adventure games from Lucas Arts, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade is probably my favorite. Although I have fond memories of most of them, except probably Loom, I enjoyed the Holy Grail hunt the most.
- Pirates! Gold More ($1.79) – Pirates is the game that made me go down in history. You start with a small ship and crew for one of the major nations of the time. Along with the usual piracy activities, such as plundering towns, capturing merchant ships, selling your loot, and hiring new crew members, you search for lost family members and legendary treasure. So much to do, so little time before retirement.
- Heroes of Might and Magic III complete ($2.49) – Homam III is considered one of the best parts of the series. It is a strategic game with turn-based tactical combat. Play multiple campaigns, hire fantastic troops, capture cities, defeat enemy heroes with your troops and magic, and upgrade your fortresses on each of the maps.
- Star Wars: Dark Forces ($1.86) – The game hasn’t aged too well, but it caused quite a stir when it was first released. The shooter had great visuals, different weapons, and a story that you played through. Other than that, it looks a lot like Doom with a Star Wars theme.
- STAR WARS: Knights of the Old Republic ($3.06) — Probably the best role-playing game in the Star Wars universe. There’s also Knights of the old republic II, which brings some improvements to the game, and Star Wars The Old Republic, a massively multiplayer game. Swotor used the same mechanics as the Baldur Gates series of games. You upgrade the main character and party, find better gear, visit different worlds in the universe and fight hordes of enemies. Lots of fun, very interesting story.
- Jagged Alliance 2 Wildfire ($1.79) — Excellent strategy game about a group of mercenaries hired to destroy a drug cartel. Hire mercenaries with personality and traits, and enjoy map after map of classic turn-based tactical gameplay.
Sets of 10
- The Witcher’s Wild Hunt 3 ($6.41) – A much-loved role-playing game set in the Witcher universe for discerning audiences. Captivating story and lots of things to do in the world. If you like story-heavy role-playing games, this one is worth a try.
- terrariums ($5.32) — One of my favorite games of all time. Terraria has so much content that you’ll spend weeks and months playing it without seeing it all. It is an action game with RPG and survival elements.
- Cyberpunk 2077 ($32.05) — The game is great fun, if your PC has enough power. I played it on a PS5 after the 1.5 update, and it worked great. The game has its quirks, but it’s fun to play, especially since it’s one of the few cyberpunk games available. You’ll be shooting bad guys most of the time, but the game has RPG elements, interesting quests and side quests, characters, and neighborhoods to explore.
Now you: found another game that you can wholeheartedly recommend?
