Hi all
Here we go again! smile
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 should I play?".
I started it years ago for the self-serving purpose of knowing the answer to that very question. It has been a valuable resource, and not just for me, as well as a bit of annual fun.
Since we began, we have increased the number of recommendations you can make, given the proliferation of indie and downloadable games, and we introduced the Hall of Fame, to identify those games that always did well and therefore we didn’t need them to be recommended each year.
After conferring with the muckys, we have made some more changes.
The main one is the induction of five more games to the Hall of Fame. We looked at the recent results, and the results across the years, drank some wine, conferred, drank some more wine, and included the following:

Broken Sword 1 (Circle of Blood, Shadow of the Templars)
Dreamfall
Gabriel Knight 1: Sins of the Fathers
Still Life
Lost Horizon

The other change (and ok I confess I didn’t confer with anyone on this) was to affectionately name the list. Given that Boaty McBoatface was taken (and Listy McListface would just be a rip off), I settled on Isabelle, for very obvious and worthy reasons joy
So welcome to Isabelle, the list of games you would recommend people should play.
There are some rules:

1. Games in our Hall of Fame are ineligible, for the reason identified above (ie we know they are worth playing else why would they be in the Hall of Fame). Votes for those games won't be counted. Those games are:

Amerzone
Black Mirror
Broken Sword 1 (Circle of Blood, Shadow of the Templars)
Dark Fall: The Journal
Dreamfall
Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers
Gabriel Knight: The Beast Within
Grim Fandango
Longest Journey
Lost Crown
Lost Horizon
Myst
Riven
Sanitarium
Still Life
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. Ditto any other spruced up releases (eg RHEM 4)
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. You cannot recommend 20 Nancy Drew games (an arbitrary rule I just made up)

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, and I will (endeavour to) post updates and pithy insights as we go. I dropped the ball last year ([blip] that real life) so have a lot to make up for. Also, avoid editing your lists after posting because Chief and I count as we go, and may miss a change.
Who wants to post the first set of Isabelle recommendations? thumbsup

Will start counting tomorrow so if you edit, post again.
Personal oldy favourites of mine include Morpheus, Blackstone Chronicles and Faust. Newer ones would be Outcry and Tormentum.
Ones I never hard of include Primordia and Oxenfree (which I went and played).
Tex and Carol mentioned a few times, so too Sherlock.

Hi ho
You can't keep good gumshoes down. GK3 is out in front, followed by Tex (UAKM). Book of Unwritten tales up there too, as are Culpa Innata and The Dig.
Keep em coming!

ps - Karsten and LeBelleRachael, you have some Hall of Fame games listed which aren't counted. If you want to substitute, do it as an edit so Chief and I can see.

Hi Gandalf, if you are going to list games in a series such as the Monkey Island games, each game needs to be listed individually by title. If you could edit your list to reflect that, it would be appreciated. wave

Karsten,
I know you replaced both Syberia games and the first Still Life, but I can't figure out which games you added.



mbday630,
Grim Fandango is an All of Fame game. Do you want to replace it by editing your post?



Thanks for telling flotsam and I. thanks

Good evening!

I have Circle of Blood but did not know that it's the first game in the series. I thought that as it's known as Shadow of the Templars outside North America, it's the second game in the series. Is this correct?

Jim

The European and North American releases had different names for the same game, the first game in the series. Circle of Blood is the North American title; Shadow of the Templars is the name it was given for the European release.

Another list bites the dust!
As always, two lists follow, one numerical, one alphabetical. I have started the numerical list with the Hall of Fame games, and included the Hall of Fame games in the alphabetical list. They are marked **.
The numerical list this year shows placings rather than votes. MaG posts it that way somewhere else on the board so I have done it that way from the get go. You can see the votes in the alphabetical list.
I have used full as well as alternate titles where I have known them. I no doubt missed a few. In the alphabetical list, I have taken some liberties with names to get series together where possible. It wasn’t always possible, so on a couple of occasions I have marked a game as a sequel. I have also numbered the series games to assist with the order in which they were developed. Be warned - they may not be sequels, just additional games in a series.
I used that list to create the numeric list, so the liberties remain. I will cross check and edit later to make sure actual titles are shown (eg Dreamfall rather than Longest Journey 2). The games on my shelf will have final say (including those that are numbered).
A few darkish games crept in but we are all friends.
And good to see Isabelle keeps getting mentioned dance
Awesome thanks to Chief who helps with the count and apologies up front for any mistakes, which are all mine.

Good evening!

On the Hall of Fame games list, aren't "Dreamfall, Longest Journey" and "The Longest Journey" the same game?

Oh, wow. So many games, so little time (and hard disk space;)).

Ana: thanks for the info on Dreamfall.

Has anyone played EVERY game on the list?

Dreamfall isn't "really" the sequel to The Longest Journey.
It's more about Zoe, who also stars in Dreamfall Chapters.
April is in Dreamfall, but the direct sequel to The Longest Journey
is called "The Longest Journey Home."
You can read more about it here:
