Descent Series

GoG has a sale going on. I'm interested in the Descent series, which games should I be picking up?

Is Cranky Hermit in the building?

I'm curious about this as well as Freespace and MDK.

I'm interested in freespace as well, but as I understand it's best to just pick up both of those.

Pretty much all of them are good. However Freespace 1 and 2 are Descent in name only. They are pure space sims in the style of Wing Commander/X-Wing/Tie-Fighter (and frequently regarded as the the best of them all). The core Descent series are Doom style key hunts with a third dimension of movement.

Descent 1&2 are usually regarded as the best. Very fun IMO, especially with one of the source ports (forgot it's name though :/)

I was afraid of everything being good, this is why I spend too much money.

Thanks though guys.
