I think it's Lights Out. It got good reviews but I almost always see people here make negative or indifferent comments about it, and I don't understand why. It has elements of horror, sci-fi and mystery story all wrapped into one, a really creative and well-thought-out story, and just the right amount of creepiness to keep you looking over your shoulder in the wee hours.

It never pretended to be a sequel or continuation to DarkFall, so I don't get all the complaints about how different it was.

Argyle I have never heard of Lights Out before. It sounds kind of interesting to me. Another series that seemed under rated to me was the Kyrandia games. I always thought The Dig was a very creative game too.

I agree about the Kyrandia games. Loved them! Another game I thought didn't get any play was "Rent-A-Hero".

Wasn't Lights Out originally put out as DarkFall II but that changed when The Adventure Company took it over? Looking at the TAC box, it states "Prepare for what happens after DarkFAll", so it kind of suggests that it is a sequel or has a strong connection to the first game.

One that springs to mind for me is Callahan's Crosstime Saloon. I still have some of the ones mentioned here in my to play pile, so its nice to see I may have some pleasant surprises ahead.

I love Discworld Noir - the whole Maltese Falcon theme always crack me up. It's Magical - it works under winXP! 1 and 2 were just a bit too frustrating - there weren't many hints, and Rincewind tend to just say "that doesn't work" for everything.

Other games that I still remember years afterwards: Return of the Phantom, The Resident's Freak Show, Return to Zork, Riddle of Master Li, and this scary and sad number called I Have No Mouth But I Must Scream. I can't get half of these to run on my pc anymore.

Riddle of Master Lu and Rent-A-hero are two good ones that had slipped my mind. Anyone ever hear of Les Manley or Altered Destiny?

A big thank you to BrownEyedTigre for the heads up on the Go Gamer sale of Secret Files: Tunguska. I only bought it because it was rated so high on last years annual game list and the blowout pricing. I can see it making it onto next years list for me. thanks
