Faust has now been mentioned, and a few more new entrants as well - Grail Quest, KQ4 and possibly the best voiced game in Ceremony of Innocence.
Grail Quest becomes the oldest game and like so many others it still remains unplayed on my shelf - too many games, so little time.
8 Nancys have been mentioned, all 7 versions of Myst, and the 4 Broken Swords.

Shockingly, I realize I have only played 4 new games since last year's list, and I'm still on hold with one of them blush.
Anyhow, I'm still going to add my list, though it is likely quite similar to last year's.

Riven
Obsidian
Myst Exile
RealMyst
Rhem
Zork Nemesis
Schizm
Riddle of the Sphinx
Black Dahlia
Gabriel Knight 2 Beast Within
Gabriel Knight 3 Blood of the Sacred
Dark Fall Lights Out
Alida
Neverhood
Morpheus
Tex Murphy Pandora Directive
Tex Murphy Under a Killing Moon
Beyond Atlantis 1
Zork Grand Inquisitor
Amber

I am going to give this a try for my first time. I think I was partly influenced by the excellent choices of dmtomchick, but I also tried to make choices based on how I would represent the whole genre of Adventure games. Here goes.

Grim Famdango
Monkey Island 3
The Watchmaker
ND- Scarlet Hand
Voyage
Blackstone Chronicles
Missing
11th Hour
Riddle of Master Lu
Sherlock Holmes The Case of the Silver Earring
Sanitarium
Myst III
Amber
Still Life
Inherent Evil
Torin's Passage

It is funny how some people go 3rd person games while others pick mostly 1st person games. I like them both.

You can have "up to" 20, but if you only want 10 Oldmariner that is perfectly fine.

One week to go.
A few more games made their first appearance on this years list, and Syberia has opened a small gap at the top. I think its gunning for 4 straight.
Keep them coming!!

Hi Dookie -- you can't include a series -- that makes it very difficult to count individual games. So you'll need to choose one Gabriel Knight game to list and one Broken Sword game to list, for instance.
