It's basically impossible to decide this, so I'm fudging it a bit. The game that I live in and enjoy the most is Myst Online: Uru Live. But I know that's partly because of the people in it, not just the game.

Single player -- still thinking about it after all these years. Shadow of Destiny.

It's very hard to tell, but probably Anachronox (being more adventure than many of so called adventure games).

my favourite adventure games are
lure of the temptress
flight of the amazon queen
6th sense investigations (only available for the amiga 1200)

i played them without needing a walkthrough and this for me is a sign of a really good adventure game as it shows that the puzzles are logical

i have played them over and over again and have just started lure again catrub

My favourite game ever??? I;d think it still has to be Riven. I wish I could play it for the first time again. That and Gabriel Knight: The beast Within.

I cannot name only one - of course the very first computer game I ever played will always hold a very special place in my heart/head and that is Beyond Time! And in my list of mostest favoritist games would be URU, and Around The World In 80 Days, and several others whose names at the moment escape me....(I'll come back here and add them if/when I think of it/them)

I would totally agree Betty Lou, it's hard to pick just one game as the best .... but if I was really pressed I would have to say The Longest Journey. It was the first computer game I played, and unfortunately I often compare the way I felt playing that game to how I feel playing a new game. Lots just don't compare. Some that did are Riven and Keepsake. I like games that are visually attractive - make you want to just walk around and enjoy the scenery as well as play the game.
Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

The Broken Sword series wil always have a place on my hard drive, along with Fahrenheit and Still Life - trouble is (despite my post), there are just too many good games out there.

I've been messing around with computers for about 10 years, and I believe that we are now in the Golden Age of Adventure Gaming thumbsup

I have to agree with Wysewomom.RIVEN is still the best game made.
I wish i could take a pill and forget everything i
know about the game[maybe not the marble puzzle] but all
the rest of the game.
Who knows at this point in my life i might not like it now????

I will be unfair to the many games which i liked but my favourite Adv Game was Still Life. I loved the investigations and the storyline and was disappointed a bit with the end. Now that the news arrived that the sequel is in production a wish came true. I just hope the sequel is as good as the first one with the same atmosphere and an equally strong storyline. The fact that i am only 22 means that i haven't played some of the older adv games which were released and many people liked.

I'd have to say "Post Mortem and Still Life" are my favorites. Great storyline and graphics. Glorius news about "Still Life 2".

It's impossible to choose a favourite but amongst them are the 1st two Gabriel Knight games, the 1st two Broken Sword games, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Fahrenheit, both Syberia games & I always seem to forget about this one mentioned by you Becky earlier, Shadows of Memories (or Destiny in the US)- it is an interesting & unusual game which I loved - wish there had been some sequels.

Myst or RealMyst. I played the original one way back when it came out. I still love to go back to it for the music and ambiance.
The answer is....chocolate! Who cares what the question is.....
