Here we go again smile
Imagine someone came to you tomorrow and asked "I want to play adventure games, can you recommend 20 games to play". The purpose of this thread is to provide the answer.
It isn't meant to be a list of the 20 best games of all time. It isn't meant to be Adventure Game 101. It might end up being both those things, but first and foremost it is a list of games that you would recommend to someone else to play.
For that reason, you might not include something that is notoriously difficult to get to run, or which has clunky graphics by today's standard, or has no sound apart from a tinny midi soundtrack. You might not recommend a game that you found awesomely wonderful on the basis that no one else has your particularly strange sense of appreciation. You might not recommend every Myst clone you have ever played because even though they are your passion, a whole list of them might be, well, a little dull.
Or you might - many players have old game rigs and there are numerous programmes that help get old games to run on new machines, who said you need flashy graphics to tell a good story, and perhaps elaborate soundtracks simply cover up the flaws in a bad script. There might be someone out there just like you who doesn't know about your awesome game, and too many Myst games is actually never enough.
The point is its up to you - if you think a game you have played is worth recommending to someone else to play, you can put it on your list.
So long of course as its an adventure game. And we all know what they are. Quake isn't one, however beautifully scripted it might be, but Myst is. Somewhere in between is a grey area which doesn't matter between friends, which we all are.
There are some rules though:

1. You can recommend a maximum of 20 games. You can choose to recommend less.
2. You cannot recommend a series. If you want to recommend all the Tex Murphy games, that will take 5 seperate recommendations, one for each game.
3. The following episodic adventures will be counted as one game - Sam & Max Season 1, Sam & Max Season 2, Wallace & Grommit, Strong Bad, Casebook.
4. Myst and RealMyst will be counted as one game.
5. Uru and its add ons will be counted as one game.
6. BadMojo and the Redux version are one game.
7. Directors cuts will be counted as the same game.
8. Adventure games only please (Dark Side games and Casual games get their own lists).

If at all possible, please list in alphabetical order - it makes counting so much easier. In doing so, ignore "the" (so The Lost Crown would be under "L" for Lost)

The thread stays open for about 3 weeks, and I will post updates as we go. Also, avoid editiing your lists after posting because I count as we go, and may miss a change.
So who wants to be first?

Yay, I am excited about this! bravo

Flotsam, I have a question before I post my list. Does the new King's Quest Collection count as one recommendation, or will I have to recommend individual King's Quest games?

Well, I had to bump one of my older favorites to be able to mention Outcry, one of the first newer games (2008) that made an impression on me. The next youngest game is Rhem 2 (2005). It should be mentioned that I haven't played Rhem 3 yet, and I when I do, I'll probably need to bump something else smirk . The list gets harder each year.

Here's mine:

Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers
Gabriel Knight: The Beast Within
Grim Fandango
Longest Journey, The
Museum of Broken Memories, The
Myst
Obsidian
Return to Zork
Riven
Sanitarium
Strange and Somewhat Sinister Tale of the House at Desert Bridge, The
Syberia
Tex Murphy: Overseer

It was especially hard to choose just one of the serial games, especially Delaware St. John and Carol Reed. And I just realized I haven't played Hope Springs Eternal, since BFG doesn't have it yet. I need to go order it, I guess. laugh

Here's my yearly contribution to the adventure game list of 2009.
And thanks, flotsam, for making this last again smile

Overclocked
The Longest Journey (the first one)
Syberia (the first one)
Grim Fandango
Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened
Zork: Nemesis
Shivers 2: Harvest of Souls
Rhiannon - the curse of the four branches
Broken Sword (the first one)
Sinking Island
Post Mortem
Still Life
Keepsake
Runaway (the first one)
Escape from Monkey Island
Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy
Agon- The Lost Sword of Toledo
Gilbert Goodmate and the Mushroom of Phungoria
The Experiment

As you can probably see, this year, more modern games have made it to my list than last year, I think? This is because I've found that the state of adventure games really is getting better.

Ceville
Colour of Murder, The
Diamonds In The Rough

I might well have also included the Phoenix Wright series for the DS, but felt you wanted PC. Thank you....

Hi all,
My apologies - real life intervened!
Its early days but Syberia already leads the way. Chasing hard are Syberia 2, Still Life and Black Mirror.
New games that have started well include Sherlock v Jack the Ripper and Rhiannon.
Nearly 200 games mentioned already and over 30 that weren't mentioned last year (including a couple I have never heard of).
Keep em coming smile

Things are humming along nicely.
Having a look at series, all 3 Gabriel Knight games have received mentions, and ditto the Agatha Christie games. All 4 Broken Sword games have been mentioned, as have all 4 Monkey Isalnd games and all 5 Carol Reed games. 5 KIngs Quest games and all of the 6 non-live incarnations of Myst are on the list, and 9 of the Nancy Drew games have received recommendations.
Conversely, non of the Leisure Suit Larry games have yet rated, nor have any of the Quest for Glory games (5 got mentioned last year, although they probably best belong on the Darkside). No Egypt games yet either.

Lost In Time---- Coktel/Sierra 1993

Hi oldmariner smile

I play this in Win98SE.
[Not in WinXP (or any other) Compatibility Mode but on a machine with a PII 350 processor - which is pretty fast for such an old game.]

Found instructions at Mr.Bill's site and after experimenting with them a little got the game running fine thumbsup

Another oldie that I love happydance

Fun theme for a list! There are very few adventure games that I would recommend just anyone new to the genre to try. Here goes:

1. Broken Sword 1
2. Syberia
3. The Longest Journey
4. Black Mirror
5. Still Life

A lot of my personal favourites are left out, such as Myst/Riven/Exile, Obsidian, Dark Fall, Lost Crown, Grim Fandango, Gabriel knight 1 - 3, etc. I might recommend some or all of those as well, but it would depend on the person.

Hi all,
Another year, and a new list. But not a new number 1. It must really be a good game!
As usual, two lists follow, one numerical, one alphabetical.
I have used full as well as alternate titles where I have known them. I no doubt missed a few. In the numeric list, I tried to use actual titles, the games on my shelf having the final say. In the alphabetical list, I have taken some liberties with names to get series together where possible. It wasn’t always, so on a couple of occassions I have marked a game as a sequel.
Thanks to Chief who verified the count, and if errors remain, they are all mine.
Finally, after 10 years it has been decided to retire some well perfoming games to a Listing Hall of Fame, on the basis that it is clear they should be played. The Muckys are conferring and analysing the lists over the years, and we will post the outcome in due course.
Thanks again to everyone that participated wave
And happy playing happydance

GreyFuss,
It means we'll have a permanent "Hall of Fame" for games like Gabriel Knight 2, which have consistently been in the Top Ten on the Twisty List. On future Twisty Lists, Hall of Fame games will no longer be eligible for people to vote on. This will make room for other games on future Twisty lists.

Hi GreyFuss -- Twisty was what we called The List the first time flotsam ran it.

Flotsam will be posting details later, but I think the selections for next year's list will not be reduced. (Not going down to just 10 picks for each member who posts, if that's what you mean.)

Yep, the current plan is to keep the 20 picks and retire some games, rather than increase the number of picks to take account of the ever increasing pool.
By now, we have pretty much established you should play eg Syberia, so we can make some room for another recommendation.

I am so amazed by this list! Didn't even enter because my favorite games are mostly the "oldies". And, here they all are STILL making the list. For a few years now, the newer games just haven't appealed to me so I don't buy many anymore and thought I was way behind in being able to assess a good chunk of newer games. Wow! I am not alone!

We've posted the top entries in the 2009 List here so it will be easy to access it permanently -- you can always click on the link in the top right corner of the GameBoomers Homepage to find it. (It's "Cure 2" for what to do if you're BAAGS is flaring up.)
