Thanks flotsam for doing this, here's this years list (unfortunately I have a backlog of current games I just haven't had time to play!):

In no particular order:

Syberia I
Discworld Noir
The Longest Journey
Broken Sword I
Still Life
Dracula Resurrection
The Messenger (Louvre)
Last Half of Darkness
Tears of Betrayal
Black Mirror
Secrets of Da Vinci - The Forbidden Manuscript
Agon - The Mysterious Codex
Gabriel Knight - Sins of the Father
Gabriel Knight - Blood of the Damned
Jack the Ripper
Al Emmo & the Lost Dutchman's Mine
Time Stand Still
Tunguska
Lunar Deep
The Moment of Silence


Pretty much the same as last year with a few additions - had to let Nibiru go - I loved it but needed to be replaced with something with a better ending!! 20 was great but still oh so difficult to make the choices! wink

Pete, boy do I agree with you about Azrael's Tear, and I'm appalled that I forgot to include it on my list. hardwall I'm sure glad it's received a mention; I thought it was an amazing game. thumbsup

Jenny I may be wrong but I believe that Exile (Myst 3) came out in 2001, not pre 2000.

Hey Nightmare Ned was...refreshingly different. I always wondered what it would be like to be thoroughly flushed.

emptyhead, you can't name a series and count it as one. You need to redo your #3 and 4.

There are many deserving games out there and with great difficulty I came up with my top ten list and I never thought it would look like this.

1-----The Longest Journey, due to rich detailed characters and a totally engrossing story, unlike anything that came before

2-----Gabriel Knight 1 Sins on the Fathers, The only game I recall that had me ducking worried what was lurking around the corner.

3-----Circle of Blood, BS1 Again story and character driven with great plot that kept you pushing forward.

4-----Lost In Time The Sierra oldie with unique inventory McGuyver type puzzles that I had not seen done before.

5-----Dreamfall, excellent follow up to the original with rich characters, detail and amazing story.

6-----Gabriel Knight 2 Jensen's blend of fact and fiction drove me to doing research just to see what was and wasn't. She almost had me convinced old king Ludwig was a werewolf.

7-----Syberia 1 It could have been higher on the list but the others had something that appealed more to me. Everything about it was outstanding.

8----Kings Quest 7 I know much maligned, however, it is unique for its time. Very funny moments, outstanding graphics comparable to a Disney movie. It was a departure from the previous games in the series.

9----Kings Quest 6 I think it was the best of the the series to that point

10----Nancy Drew Secrets of the Old clock. Before you laugh and scream heresy for placing this one ahead of a thousand others it had some interesting aspects I had not encountered before. (1) I still cannot cut a dress pattern with a mouse. I doubt many grizzled old timers could. I havn't tried it with a pair of shears. And this old guy climbed Mt. St. Helens. Challenges I say. (2) Every time I ran into a puzzle that slowed me a bit I could jump into that fancy blue convertible and drive around town. What game ever let you do that? Not April, Kate, Gabriel or even Sherlock got to drive a car. For my money it belongs on this list even if it is dismissed as a little girl's game by many.

We will leave it at ten no sense in trying to add more so that's my top ten for better or worse. You can tell I like story driven games with good characters.

This was the first year I took KQ7 off of my list, and I almost feel like I snubbed an old friend. One of my favorites, but this year I didn't put all my personal favorites on the list. Glad you mentioned it, oldmariner!

Thanks emptyhead and no need to apologise.
And oldmariner, I might well vote for The Messenger simply because of the latex suit, so don't let anyone besmirch the car.
BS1, Dreamfall and Moment of Silence join the 10s and Buried in Time and Of Light and Darkness are new.
Some top games not yet mentioned? Its a matter of opinion but maybe Traitors Gate, Full Throttle and Faust. Plus Isabelle of course.
Ico, Fahrenheit and Outcast have all been mentioned on this list before but not yet, but are probably being saved for the Dark Side (which I think is where they belong).
