Hi All,
Originally I was going to ask for just one game but discovered I had a problem placing these 5 above as a best of all time so I decided to go for 5. My picks in no particular order are The Beast Within, TLJ, Black Dahlia, Moment of Silence (think I might have to duck for cover here but I loved the story and the graphics) and Syberia. Honorable mention goes to 2 of the Tex games UAKM and Pandora Directive.

Warm Regards to All,
Barry

Hi Ana,
I know about the recommendations list but I wanted things narrowed down to 5 all time favorites. Most of the time with the recommend list there are 15-20 games listed in no particular order and the final was just a hit total of the most selected in the entries. I was more curious about indivdual favorites and the type of games the individual members liked the most limiting it to 5 (not so much of a recommendation list but as a way of getting to know who likes what type of games).

Warm Regards,
Barry

PS the reason for my comment with TMOS was it was one of those games with no middle ground, it was either loved or hated.

Syberia 1&2
Simon the Socererer 1&2
Runaway 1&2

The problem is all the others that I love but if only 5 to take to my desert island I think it would be these. Have I cheated as that is 8 games!
