My first loves will always be the Gabriel Knight series of games followed closely by the Syberia games...for RPG's it has got to be Divine Divinity happydance bravo

Yes, Gimli...I played Zelenhgorm and I really enjoyed it...such a pity that the planned series of games didn't happen. frown

Wow. I love this kind of topic but it's SO hard to pick just one game! lol

I'd have to say (in no particular order)Syberia, Alone in the Dark (the first one), Realms of the Haunting, Nancy Drew Royal Tower & Haunted Mansion, Dragonsphere, Myst, Myst Exile, Barrow Hill, Darkfall, Legend of Kyrandia, 7th Guest, Eye of the Beholder 1 & 2, Black Mirror, and probably a million others I can't think of right now. lol

Thanks for bringing this up....it's fun to remember which ones I love so I can go and replay them all over again. smile

blush The only problem with this type of topic is that all the "Favorite" lists include a game or two that I haven't played. Since I generally respect the opinions I see here, I then have to go find and purchase these games. Now if I could only retire (One more year!) so that I'll be able to play all of them. Ah well, 'The course of true adventure gaming never runs smoothly.'

I don't have a favourite, or even a few favourites, but I do have a long list of games that are to my liking in different degrees. This is because I own a ton of games and am never satisfied with the ones that I have, so I keep buying new ones.

Do I like Alone in the dark (AITD) series? Have played them and found them to be really difficult and too dark to my tastes, so I have to say that I was never really fond of them. But I have found Silent Hill 3, in many ways similar to AITD series, to be rather good and I have played it a few times to unlock secrets and easter eggs.

Whew! Lots of them but right off hand: Myst, Riven, Luxor (the older adventure game), Syberia 1, Aura, The Dark Falls, Riddle of the Sphinx,Scratches, Keepsake, Shivers 1, Barrow Hill, Still Life, Myst 5, (myst 4 would've made the list but for having to draw on that darn tablet):(Uru-would've made the list but for timed action puzzles (with not enough time) and jumping..), Myst 3 Exile,Morpheus, Gabriel Knight 2 (never finished 3..just too, too tedious), LightHouse, The Rhems!! Zork Nemisis, Zork Grand Inquisitor...and some action/adventures i have played because was able to get and use cheat codes: Rune, Curse of Isis, Alone in the Dark (4): The New Nightmare, Wheel of Time(an older game, but worth playing..very overlooked in my opinion) American McGee's Alice..and one of the creepiest..Undying! and i know more i just cannot think of right now.

The "Broken sword" games are some of the best adventure games on the planet imo.
The "Monkey Island" games were good,"Grim Fandango" and also worthy of note is "Nightlong a union city conspiracy" excellent sci-fi adventure game.

I'm with Gimli and Haze - all the Myst games plus Uru and Path of the Shell are my favorites! Out of those, If I had to pick one, it would be Riven hearts !!

The Haze: glad to be able to ask exceptional questions laugh URU for me is a Myst game because of the landscape, the Myst people in it and so on. Now I have half a mind to play URU a forth time...

Tyke: I totally agree that it's a pity there are no other Zelenghorm games!

I absolutely LOVE Syberia. I'm playing Syberia 2 right now. The graphics are sensational, the voices (acting) are realistic. I just love it and will be sad when it's finished.

My only wish in Syberia 2 was that Kate Walker had changed her clothes finally... nope same outfit. She's been wearing it a long time. And when I tried to make her take a shower she said it was too cold. Pee Phew! laugh

I also like Nancy Drew. I don't like scary games.

woozy Gimli; I decided that I knew where to go to find a definitive answer and prove you were mistaken. I went to the new online web site to see what the game was called because that name would help clarify the connection of MYST and URU. What do they call the online version? MYST online - URU live! That sure doesn't help much. One thing we do agree on, I've loaded mine up again. I love making my player old, chubby and bald. That way he looks like me! lol

wave Too many to mention. However, the one game that will always stay with me is my very first game I ever played, on my son's computer, which was 'Shivers'. From then on, I was hooked. smile

It doesn't matter whether it's a Myst game or no, the Haze - URU is a fantastic game!

I have to agree that Under a Killing Moon was incredible! I think that my favourite Tex Murphy game was Pandora Directive! I am still completely devastated and disappointed that they didn't make another game after Overseer!
