American McGees Alice. Excellent in every aspect. And Fun! Fun! Fun! Serious Sam is a close runner up too for the fun factor. This is overall. If youre talking just adventure it would have to be TLJ. PS Havent you learned to never say "just one".

Now, you just said "game" so I can give my favorite "Thief Gold". Some people say that isn't an adventure game but its adventure/action.
Why my favorite? Because I never get tired of replaying this game (with pregnant intervals) and always find it challenging. It, along with its sibling Thief II and many of the Thief Fan Missions, are the only games I have been so engrossed in that hours pass before I reluctantly turn it off until another day.

Easy for me. The Last Express. I found it totally engrossing. The real time aspect really put me inside the game. It was plenty challenging such that I had to really think about events and goals before realizing what needed to be done or tried. I liked the story, characters and music. The intelligent rewind feature would take me back to the point I needed to be to do something differently or go someplace different. Finally, I like the nostalgia of trains.

Divine Divinity. Reason - it was engrossing and fun to play and had a great story. Only negative thing I can say about it is the long time it took to load and save games.

If you mean just from the adventure genre - I guess The Longest Journey would qualify.

Riven.
It was the first adventure game I played. I was fascinated by this other world where I could explore to my hearts content. There was so much to see and experience. I was immersed in another culture, gathering information from abandoned buildings and manipulating gadgets, the function of which I would eventually discover. This was the epitomy of the gaming experience for me, and the standard by which I judge all the other games I play.

colpet took the words right out of my mouth. The tram, the Sunners, the submarine, touching the beetle and the marble puzzle to name a few had me in awe.

Impossible for me to do. I might be able to narrow it down to four or five, but which one is my favorite depends on what I am in the mood for on any given day. If I want to laugh, it's Curse of Monkey Island. If I am in the mood to squirm it's Sanitarium. If I'm in the mood to puzzle it's Riven. If I feel like mystery and derring-do then it might be The Last Express or, if I'm more in the mood for a boat than a train today, Titanic: Adventure Out of Time.

They are all my favorite. On any given day. laugh

I find naming one almost impossible. Even the twisty list's 15 is too few. I have played so many different kinds of games over the years and yet each had some great aspect that made the game memorable. If I really had to give every adventure game away except for 1, I would keep TLJ. The ending just awed me and I loved the fantasy aspect of the game. (Of course, I would have stashed Zork GI, The Crystal Skull, Nancy Drew, Curse of MI, Dracula, Sanitarium, Timelapse, etc. where they wouldn't see that I still had them smile )

Myst, probably the Myst Masterpiece Edition version, though I like realMyst a lot. It's not the only game out there and it's not the best game out there. I like and love so many other games now, and they aren't all lonely 1st person games, either.

BUT, Myst became my world. It still is my world. I feel as if I've been there. I have memories, just like in the "real" world.

If I have to pin it down to just one, I'd have to say "Riven". It was the second adventure game I ever played (after Myst) and I was just enthralled to think that people could create such magical worlds for us to explore right there on our own computers.

You know I was addicted to RCT for a whole year. I had parks hundreds of years old with millions of dollars to play with. That was probably the most addicting game of all time for me, and I still check on my parks every now and then. If I would have thought of it, it probably would have made it more difficult to choose Alice. Another one was Ultimate Ride. I also adored that game.
