Latex? Now that's about as bad as the loincloths Flotsam! But I guess there are worse reasons for putting a game on the list. lol think

You are welcome for my comments, flotsam, glad they can stay. Another oldie but goodie and different than any other is a game that has NOT been mentioned here at all, yet = Neverhood! I still have it and have not pulled it out recently to replay but do so love it for its difference from all the other games I have played and its 'comicness', if that is even a word. And there were several other games that I could not include because all of a sudden "20" is not enough - funny how we used to think that 10 was not enough and longed for you to let us list 15 or 20....I guess we will never be satisfied with having to 'cut' some of our favorites from this list grin
AND, I see nothing wrong with including the Nancy Drew games here, most of them are among my favorites, and I occassionally pull one out and replay it - plus they have given my granddaughter PJ a looksee at what "gramma does with most of her time" every day....got her interested in trying them herself when she is here. Love this list and this thread....thanks Flotsam for doing it again.
Love, Betty Lou

Here is my vote, all the way from the low lands (That's Holland! whistle)
from highest to lowest.

1.Blackstone Chronicles (what a voice-acting, what an atmosphere)
2.Sanitarium (what a voice-acting, what an atmosphere)
3.Dark Fall (what an atmosphere, mind-stimulating)
4.I have no mouth and I must scream
5.Post Mortem (very original, like old french movies)
6.Broken Sword 1 (great game, very funny)
7.Black Mirror (wonderfull to play in a darkened room)
8.Runaway (great characters, very funny)
9.Dark Fall 2 (mabye not as surprising as part 1, but
some great additions for enhancing the mood of the game.
10.Jack the ripper (fine game,ending a bit disappointing)
11.Syberia 1, (very original)
12.Scratches (I love this kind of game,almost as scary
as my nightmares evil cool)
13.Barrow Hill
14.Nibiru
15.Dark seed (underestimated game)
16.Silver Earring (and other Sherlock games)
17.Zork, grand Inquisitor (very funny)
18.Lighthouse
19.Amerzone
20.Full Throttle

My list always seems to be the same ...
But the games are in a different order! lol)

It has been - it's on my list, Betty Lou. But I'm surprised it hasn't been mentioned more.

Well you can take Full Throttle off my little list. Faust will follow I reckon.
Neverhood has a few mentions Betty Lou and rest assured it will be on my list. A shame there weren't a few more clay games. I have 2 Russian ones but needless to say they are a tad confusing crazy
Loincloths are way to cold nickie!
172 games have been mentioned already, and 2 are leading the way - no prizes for guessing which ones.

Came to me that its a shame I havent been able to finish more games this year. I am pretty sure a few of those I have 'coming up' would be on this list if I had played them through.

Gong to keep to games that I already do recommend to new adventure game fans. I don't usually expect new gamers to get into the old parser games for example. But a few are too good not to list, like Starship Titanic.

In no particular order...

Myst/realMyst
Riven
Zork: Grand Inquisitor
Uru
Myst V
Curse of Monkey Island
Darkfall
Starship Titanic
Discworld Noir
Broken Sword
Grim Fandango
Nancy Drew: Last Train to Blue Moon Canyon
Journeyman Project 3: Legacy of Time
Sam & Max 1st season
And Then There Were None
Secrets of Atlantis: The Sacred Legacy
Riddle of the Sphinx
Syberia
Mysterious Journey 2/Schizm 2
Al Emmo & the Lost Dutchman's Mine

Even with the expanded space, these lists always feel too short, and I still want to pick some series lol

Thank you so much for doing these lists, Flotsam. It is so fun to reminisce about each favorite and how much fun they were to play,... Happy memories! laugh

There are a lot of games that I haven't played yet, (even though many are on my shelf waiting to be played) so I expect my list will change after I play them.
The final list will sure help me make choices as to which ones to try next. That is, if I can pull myself away from playing the Huntsville games! rotfl

Thanx for putting this together for us!

1) Myst 1
2) 7th Guest
3) 11th Guest
4) Nancy Drew Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake
5) Valhalla Classic 1 from Vulcan
6) Riven
7) Grail Quest (old Mac black and white game. I'm keeping my OLD Mac so I can keep replaying this game)
8) Kings Quest IV
9) Beyond Atlantis
10) Agatha Christie-Murder On the Orient Express
11) Monkey Island 1
12) Timelapse
13) Remedy
14) Syberia 1
15) Riddle of the Sphinx
16) Safecracker
17) Secret of DaVinci
18) The Longest Journey
19) King's Quest 6
20) Myst III
