Hi all

I thought this year I would just spring it on you!!

In case you have forgotten or are new, our annual list provides the answer to the question "If I want to play an adventure game, what would you recommend".

So long as you think a game you have played is worth recommending to someone else to play, put it on your list. But only if its an adventure game. Don't fret if you aren't sure that it is an adventure game - there is some latitude for those fuzzy round the edges games that are hard to define.

There are some rules:

1. Games in our Hall of Fame are ineligible, on the basis that we know they are worth playing else why would they be in there. Votes for those games won't be counted. Those games are:

Amerzone
Black Mirror
Dark Fall: The Journal
Gabriel Knight: The Beast Within
Grim Fandango
Longest Journey
Lost Crown
Myst
Riven
Sanitarium
Syberia
Syberia 2
Timelapse
Zork Nemesis
Zork Grand Inquisitor

2. You can recommend a maximum of 20 games. You can choose to recommend less.
3. You cannot recommend a series. If you want to recommend all the Tex Murphy games, that will take 6 (is it still six??) separate recommendations, one for each game.
4. Episodic adventures will be counted as one game, regardless of where they are up to in the series.
5. Uru and its add ons will be counted as one game.
6. BadMojo and the Redux version are one game.
7. Directors cuts and Special Releases will be counted as the same game.
8. Adventure games only (Dark Side games and Casual games get their own lists).
9. PC games please (although if you sneak a console game in I won't tell)
10. Voting for Isabelle won't count as one of your votes, so you effectively get 21 (I am convinced its actually everyones 21st recommended game so this will help find out) crazy

If at all possible, please list in alphabetical order - it makes counting so much easier. In doing so, ignore "the" (so The Dark Eye would be under "D" for Dark)

The thread stays open for about 3 weeks, (final results will be posted on the last day of July)and I will (endeavour to) post updates as we go. Also, avoid editing your lists after posting because Chief and I count as we go, and may miss a change.

Who wants to be first?

Space Quest, since you have Dreamfall on your list, I would definitely recommend Chapters. It has gameplay similar to Dreamfall (though thankfully without the fighting and [very little] stealth) yet with the detail and character depth of the original Longest Journey. Zoë and Kian are both nicely fleshed out in Chapters, much more so than in Dreamfall. And Life is Strange reminds me very much of TLJ as well with an eighteen year old photography student (April was an art student. Coincidence? grin) who discovers she has an unusual, universe altering power. Both games are fantastic so far, and both are up to their respective third episodes.

Regarding your list, I love The Dig! I wanted to include it as well, but there just aren't enough slots, even with twenty spaces. I was torn between it and Overclocked for the last slot but finally went with Overclocked since Martin Ganteföhr has a new game coming out soon. I'm grateful for the Hall of Fame because there are seven games on that list that would take up more spaces, which would mean more games I would have to eliminate. lol

[And I offer no excuses for the oldies I've included because they are all fantastic
Adventures yes]

Plus, of course, many thanks to you both - flotsam and Chief - for giving your time to this project !!

Venus,

Just from your description Chapters is now a must for me. Mobieus sounds interesting too. I love Jane Jensen and I think I have confused it with Morpheus in the past (which I really liked). I even loved the music in The Dig. smile



Mad,

Black Dahlia was a good one that I forgot. yes

Oh, the music of "The Dig" was absolutely spectacular for an Adventure game at that time - and it still holds up splendidly today yes
The Dig is one my many "oldie replay" games bravo

BUT regardless of all that, we're going to get told off if we're not careful for veering off topic !!!! evil

Hello All

I've limited myself to ten adventure games that I'd put on any 'happy holiday list' (and I haven't included my own!).

Barrow Hill
The Journeyman Project – Legacy of Time
Kairo
Last Half of Darkness: Tomb of Zojir
Lighthouse
Morpheus
Myst III: Exile
Rhem
Riddle of the Sphinx
The Vanishing of Ethan Carter

I have really enjoyed playing these, as well as most of those on the existing main list.
Elen

About the Dreamfall games, please say if it is The Longest Journey or The Chapters.

Space Quest Fan: I assume yours is the Longest Journey?

Thanks for telling us.

EDIT: Oups, just read your other post. Longest Journey it is.

flotsam,

What do you think about maybe next year we could have everyone also cast one vote for an older game for Hall of Fame induction? That way maybe a Monkey Island, Gabriel Knight, Tex Murphy etc. game could make our HOF.

@Space Quest, let me know what you think of Chapters when/if you play it. thumbsup Personally, I think it's one of the best games I've played, and I'm not at all biased. evil lol I think Moebius is a great game. Not everyone liked it, and I do think it was the least of Jane Jensen's adventure games, but I don't think it deserved all the negativity it got by a long shot. I always make sure to recommend it for those who might be interested. It does have the feeling of the beginning of a series, so be warned if you like it, you may get attached to the characters and want more. smile

@Thorsgoats, glad to see you made it to post your list. thumbsup

Thanks for your time and efforts, flotsam and Chief. It's always fun to remember the games I've played over the last year and compare them to the great games from the past. I agree with Mad that getting down to 20 recommended games is painful:

AGON 4: The Lost Sword of Toledo
The Book of Unwritten Tales
Broken Sword 1: Shadow of the Templars
Broken Sword 5: The Serpent's Curse
Culpa Innata

Disc World Noir
Dreamfall: The Longest Journey
Gabriel Knight 3: Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned
Gabriel Knight 1: Sins of the Father
Gray Matter

Machinarium
Moebius: Empire Rising
A New Beginning
Paradise
Rhiannon: Curse of the Four Branches

Secret Files 1: Tunguska
Sinking Island
Tex Murphy: Pandora Directive
Tex Murphy: The Tesla Effect
Yoomurjak's Ring

I'm hoping Kentucky Route Zero will be fully released by next year, because it will definitely have a shot at making it on my list (though that will mean a year to ponder what game gets bumped off).

No disrespect to these yearly lists or for the games of the past but I am tired of listing the same old top ten games that I have liked so much in the past. Time for me to move on. They are all good games but most are outdated technology wise so I am now only going back to games released from Jan 2013 to date. I have played more but this list only includes the games that I have enjoyed very much in that time frame. Shame (for me) there are so few.

Capri Connection
Carol Reed Cold Case Summer
Carol Reed: Bosch's Damnation
Decay: The Mare
Morningstar: Descent to Deadrock
Roonsehv: Neterra
Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments
Stanley Parable
Tex Murphy: Tesla Effect
Vanishing of Ethan Carter

A lot of the games on my list are oldies or even ancients laugh but the only one on it that has not yet been tweaked (as far as I know) to play on modern machines is "Black Dahlia".

So, as these older games are some of the best ever made and are now available for a new generation of players to experience, I feel they are definitely worth listing yes

My list is older games too but I listed them because I still think they are the best games out there and are what I would suggest to people just getting into gaming. I wish I has more recent game to recommend.

Black Dahila was one of those games that stayed with me long after I played it because the plot was so good.

A while back, someone in Glitches mentioned a Black Dahlia patch such that the game will run on Vista/Windows 7. I haven't tried it.

Thanks, Chief - I hope more members will post their favorites. smile

I was going to make it easy this year by simply placing the 10 Carol Reed games on top of my list. But since I expect all of them to be moved to the Hall of Fame any year now, that would be quite pointless. smile

Just as MaG above me, my list is the same as last year, except for one title:

Amber: Journeys Beyond
Blade Runner
The Blackstone Chronicles
The Colonel's Bequest
The Dame Was Loaded
The Dark Eye
Kings Quest IV: The Perils of Rosella
Kings Quest V
Kings Quest VII: The Mask of Eternity
Leisure Suit Larry I: In the Land of the Lounge Lizards
Leisure Suit Larry III: Passionate Patti
Monkey Island 3: The Curse of Monkey Island
Morpheus
Police Quest I: In Pursuit of the Death Angel
Police Quest IV: Open Season
Quest for Glory V
Tex Murphy: The Pandora Directive
Tex Murphy: The Overseer
Tex Murphy: Under A Killing Moon
Tex Murphy: The Tesla Effect

123pazu, I would think that PS3 adventure games are OK.

I have "Heavy Rain" on my list of games that I use to count all the votes.

I'm sure flotsam will comment on this to make it official or not.

No doubt, the older games were and are still great, but, it seems to me, the games that have been developed and released lately are excellent too and should make "Favorite Lists". Some of my personal favorites are..

Morningstar: Descent to Deadrock
Roonsehv: Neterra
Carol Reed 10: Bosch's Damnation
Tex Murphy: The Tesla Effect
Subject 13
ASA: A Space Adventure
1954 Alcatraz

many adventure games are too demanding for me,

not offensive. no graphic violence.

Here is your 2015 Adventure games List with five new leaders on top and last year winner, Lost Horizon, just one behind. dance

As usual, two lists follow: a numerical one with the Hall of Fame games on top and an alphabetical one.

I wrote these two lists as they came and believe me when I say that flotsam has made some great work since the year 2000 when writing the annual List with great care. bravo

And if I may quote flotsam, but in the opposite side:

“Awesome thanks to flotsam who helps with the count and apologies up front for any mistakes, which are all mine”

And indeed, if you notice any mistakes, please tell me so that I can correct them.

Thank you all for your participation. thumbsup

Interesting that we have several games tied this year, and a lot of fantastic ones at that. thumbsup I do wish Dreamfall Chapters, Culpa Innata and Life is Strange could have gotten more votes, but glad to see them represented at least. smile

Thanks for all your hard work this year, Chief and flotsam! A lot of fun as always, and looking forward to another one next year. grin
