Hi all,
Mucky is indeed a term of endearment kissy - just ask Nickie, the highest of all the muckys.
TLJ leads the way narrowly, and Keepsake proves the most annoying voice ever doesn't prevent a game being popular.
27 games mentioned so far that weren't on last years list, and not all of them new - Loom and Pilgrim to name just two.
Well done to those who list alphabetically, bravo and the comments are fun Betty Lou.
Keep em coming.

oldman, Riddle of Master Lu is a blast from the past for me. I had forgot all about that great game. It makes me miss the old days of Sierra and LucasFilms games.

I loved Riddle of Master Lu, too (although I could have done without the puzzle in the lab). wink It was a wonderful game. And it runs great in DOSBox!!

Great pick, John! I should have included it on my own list!

Listed alphabetically - going back to the initial release of adventure games on cd-rom media.

Azrael's Tear (1996 Mindscape)
Beyond Atlantis (Atlantis 2)
Callahan's Crosstime Saloon (1997 Legend Entertainment)
Gabriel Knight 3: Blood of the Damned
Lighthouse (1996 Sierra)
Myst / RealMyst
Myst II: Riven
Myst IV: Revelation
Myst V: End of Ages
Myst URU / POTS
Obsidian (1996 SegaSoft)
RAMA (1996 Sierra)
Riddle of the Sphinx 1
Shivers 1
Syberia 1
Tex Murphy: Pandora Directive (1996 Access Software)
Tex Murphy: Under a Killing Moon (1994 Access Software)
The Longest Journey
TimeLapse (1996 GTE Entertainment)
Zork Nemesis (1996 Activision)

FWIW, I think that Azrael's Tear had the most engaging (winning; attractive; pleasing) storyline of any game I have ever played - perhaps not as deep as the Myst series, but equally as memorable, and eminently replayable.
