Ceremony of Innocence is a beautiful game. A word of warning, though, that I believe this is one of those games that will NOT run on Windows XP.

For me the biggest surprise was how low the Discworld games were rated. Both games were at the top of my list. Simon the Sorcerer #2 is a very under rated game in my opinion that deserves a little more attention. I also expected The Dig to get more mentions.

I love the Discworld games too Gandalf, but I would guess a lot of folks are newer to gaming and have never heard of them. Same with Simon and The Dig and a lot of great oldies.

Hi smile

I've been playing games for a long time now and the more I play the more I find it difficult to select a limited number of favourites or ones I would recommend.
There are just so many I have enjoyed grin

I have a struggle every year and am never satisfied with the list I end up submitting lol

Cheers.

I think the #2 Discworld had some of the best puzzles ever.

I don't know what it says about me but upon checking I've played all the games on the top 50 except Destination Treasure Island and am thinking of getting that as I type.

I had played TLJ, but, would not play Dreamfall due to the interface type. I hate keyboard type games,and from what I read it is just that. Which in turn led me to not even wanting to play it, even though it is the sequel to TLJ. I always like to play the sequel games, but, stay away from keyboard games. I find it impedes my overall enjoyment of the adventure.
I really enjoyed Return to Mysterious Island this year and the 2 Dracula games. I loved the story line and graphics and interface an easy to follow and play game.
Glad they were on the,list. smile

@ Ellimay

I just checked my manual (for Dreamfall) and page 10 it says this:" By adjusting the option 'mouse mode' from 'camera' to 'movement' - you can choose to control the characters movement with the mouse.

I also think there's a command to view the camera in fixed third person over the shoulder view...
