Here is your chance to share your favorite casual games with others and help them enjoy the best of the best!

Please list your top 20 favorite casual games, any genre, any year (the more current the better), in alphabetical order (please and thank you) and submit them in this thread anytime between now and February 15th, 2016.

I'll add a new twist this year and let you name 5 top series that you may want to recommend as well. Please list those separate from the individual but you can post them in the same post.

Please do not edit once you have submitted your list because they will be recorded as they are posted. If you want to add a game and you didn't choose 20 the first time, PM me first to let me know you are doing that and then you can post again. You cannot exceed 20.

I hope to see lots of entries, the list is a wonderful resource for those looking to branch out into casuals or to give you new ideas of games to check out in case you missed them.

We will not be separating the games into categories, so no need to be specific as to the genre.

Have fun thinking of your lists and looking forward to seeing all of your favorites.

Ana joy

Is it all right to add to the series list? I left out a couple that I really like even if the individual games are not my favorites.

This is great. Have seen some I never heard of and now will try! My faves are below. Caveat: I like my games long and the puzzles/mini-games difficult. I don't really enjoy HOG, so games I list are light on those scenes and skewed toward adventure.

Not many "Series" entries from me; I would recommend very few Series as a group, because early games often do not measure up. (Many Series get better as they go along.) In the Series I list, ALL games in that Series are well above average.

Alex Hunter: Lord of the Mind
Amaranthine Voyage -Tree of Life
Awakening: Sunhook Spire
Cadenza: Music and Betrayal
Calavera: Day of the Dead
Christmas Stories: Nutcracker
Clockwork Tales: Glass and Ink
Dark Dimensions: City of Fog
Dire Grove: Sacred Grove
Eternal Journey: New Atlantis
Forbidden Secrets: Alien Town
Otherworld: Spring of Shadows
Rite of Passage: Child of the Forest
Shiver: Moonlit Grove
Timeless: The Lost Castle
Witches' Legacy: Dark Throne

Series:
House of 1000 Doors
Lost Lands
New York Mysteries

Is this only for recent games?
I would have expected more votes for Drawn.
I'll have to think about what recent casual games I've enjoyed.

Jenny, I posted "any year" but the more current the better. If you want Drawn on there please add it. You can also add Drawn the series and leave room for individual games.

I think it's more beneficial to users to add some current games in there because it seems like the list doesn't change much otherwise for those looking for new suggestions. You are free to add any game you choose, though.

I know MY individual games list isn't very "current" so it's probably not too helpful.

[ I've played so many I find it difficult to sort the wheat from the chaff at a later date blush ]

But I think my my series list is OK grin

I played Drawn around the time it was released and thought it was okay as an adventure game but far better than most other casuals. In only a few years many casual games have surpassed Drawn so I for one am not surprised that Drawn isn't way up there. It's just not the casual equivalent of, for example, the Gabriel Knight games.

There are NO casual equivalents of the Gabriel Knight games .... In fact, for me, there are no Adventure games out there that can even compare !! snicker
