Guilty, Marian (Crystal Skull) whistle One of the funniest games I've ever played. Actually I included several that didn't get good reviews - they were wrong of course. rotfl

Nickie, I'm all for funny in games! I did load up The Crystal Skull a LONG time ago. The sum total of my recollection consists of having been bitten by a snake (?) and seeing Edward James Olmos in a loincloth. rotfl It was an interesting first impression. wink

If I can get the game running, I will give it another try this year. smile wave

Well yes, I could have been unduly influenced because of the loincloths. rotfl I sometimes like to have a game that makes me laugh the whole way through, and not many do (the four that did on are the list). I'll sure be interested to hear what you think Marian. wave

My problem is deciding which games not to include. I'd like to list all the old LucasArts adventures, but that would take up too many slots. I hate leaving out The Dig, with its wonderful soundtrack, the one of a kind Loom, and Day of the Tentacle, probably the funniest game I've ever played. So I decide by using criteria like "TLJ, Riven, and Syberia don't need my help because several other people are sure to recommend them."

I also wanted to list a variety -- humorous and not, puzzle-oriented and not, and most importantly, new as well as older games. Generally I only listed one member of a series, though you can see I have 2 or 3 exceptions. (I assume someone who enjoyed GK1 would seek out the other two GK games. But I know of people who enjoyed Zork GI but not Zork Nemesis and vice versa...)

Here are the older (pre year 2000) games I'd recommend (minus those I didn't have room for)

Amerzone
Secret of Monkey Island
Curse of Monkey Island
Gabriel Knight 1
Grim Fandango
Morpheus
Myst/RealMyst
Myst III: Exile
Obsidian
Sanitarium
Shivers
Zork Nemesis
Zork Grand Inquisitor

And below are the newer ones:

Aura
Dark Fall
The Egyptian Prophecy
Keepsake
Return to Mysterious Island
RHEM 2
Tunguska

Sometimes I wonder if we shouldn't have a separate list of games that are generally easy to get running on newer computers without needing DOSBox or fussing with compatibility mode, etc. But Microsoft's patches have made this difficult to predict even with relatively recent games, what with needing to run them as administrator and such. The LucasArts games may actually be easier to get running than some of the new games now, thanks to ScummVM. And GK1 and GK2 now have the fan-made XP installers.
