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

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
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.

Adventure gaming is fun smile

Thank you for all your efforts with this! If you need collating help, please holler! BTW, in several cases (such as Agatha, Law & Order, Holmes) I could have listed more than one in the series, but worked to keep the list varied and to 20. Here we go:

Agatha Christie: And Then There Were None
Black Mirror, The
Broken Sword, The Circle of Blood (+ Wii & DS versions!)
Colour of Murder, The
Diamonds In The Rough
Emerald City Confidential
Grim Fandango
Law & Order: Justice Is Served
Longest Journey, The
Lost Crown, The
Sam & Max: Season One
Secret Of Monkey Island, The
Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened (remastered version)
So Blonde
Still Life
Vampyre Story, A

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
Quantity has a quality all of its own
