And so it begins smile
For those in the know, you can skip to the rules – there is a new and very important one this year. For everyone else, here is a reminder of what this thread is about.
Imagine someone asked you "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 (see eg Isabelle, the most awesomest game ever happydance ). 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 just 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 (see eg Isabelle), and perhaps 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. Bioshock isn't one, however beautifully scripted you think it might be, but Myst is (so is Isabelle). Somewhere in between is a grey area which doesn't matter between friends, which we all are.
There are some rules though:

1. Games in our Hall of Fame are ineligible and votes for them will not be counted. Those games are:

Amerzone
Black Mirror
Dark Fall: The Journal
Gabriel Knight: The Beast Within
Grim Fandango
Longest Journey
Myst
Riven
Sanitarium
Syberia
Syberia 2
Timelapse
Zork Nemesis
Zork Grand Inqusitor

(to explain, we recently “retired” a number of games to our Hall of Fame. This was on the basis that they always did well, and we no longer needed to list them to know they were worth playing. It was either that, or continue to expand the number of choices to allow for the ever growing pool of adventure games.
This means you can spread your choices more widely, and we will list the Hall of Fame games alongside this years results when finished).

2. You can recommend a maximum of 20 games. You can choose to recommend less.
3. 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.
4. The following episodic adventures will be counted as one game - Sam & Max Season 1, Sam & Max Season 2, Wallace & Grommit, Strong Bad, Casebook, AGON, Tales of Monkey Island, Enter the Story.
5. Uru and its add ons will be counted as one game.
6. BadMojo and the Redux version are one game.
7. Directors cuts and Special Releases (eg Tales of Monkey Island) 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 Chief and I count as we go, and may miss a change.
So, batter up!

When possible, please alphabetize the list, not put it in order of your favorite! It's much easier to count (what ends up being) hundreds of entries if they are in alphabetical order!

One week down!
45 games not mentioned lat year are already on the list, which is already over 225 games in total.
Still Life leads the way, with Overclocked, Exile, Lost Crown and Pandora Directive not far behind.
Black Mirror 2 is doing well considering its short release time, and Tex and Gabriel keep on keeping on.
Six Kings Quest games have been mentioned, as have six Nancy Drew games. All the Monkey Island games, including the latest episodic outing, are on the list, as are all the eligible Myst games.
The Duck and the Dame are both back, but Delaware is so far missing in action.
And Isabelle is already on the list and I haven't even voted happydance

thanks flotsam for doing the list and giving us updates. I'm surprised that Keepsake and Runaway are not doing better. I guess Pandora Directive is the biggest surprise for me. It is pretty impressive that a game that old is still going strong. I have not played Black Mirror 2 yet but I am pleased to see it is getting support from the Boomers. Tex, Gabriel, and Monkey Island have always been favorites of mine so I am glad to see them doing well too.

Hi all. Thanks to all who welcomed me. I might be on every once in a while. Venus and I were in the middle of "Ghost Pirates of Vooju Island". She was the one that recommended it to me. Her desktop is still not usable yet, so we're using my laptop until it becomes available. The last game we played was The Lost Crown, which turned out to be one of my favorite games. Venus thought it was scary but she still liked it, and I just found it disturbing in several parts.

Nonetheless, it was nice meeting everybody.

Still Life now leads, with Lost Crown and Pandora Directive chasing hard.
Just looking through last years list, some surprise absentees so far might include Shadow of Destiny and Indigo Prophecy.
I am away till after the weekend, so will post something on my return (including my own list) and we will then be in the home stretch smile

Thank you yet again Flotsam for your hard work on getting this list together. I'm a lot behind with many of the newer games released over the last two years & it is so difficult to condense it to 20 as there are many games I've excluded that are on a par with the ones I have! But here goes:

Agon: The Mysterious Codex
Art of Murder: 3 Cards of Destiny
Black Circle (A Carol Reed Mystery)
Blackwell Convergence
Broken Sword 1
Culpa Innata
Diamonds in the Rough
Dracula 3
Gabriel Knight 1: Sins of the Fathers
Last Half of Darkness: Tomb of Zojir
Moment of Silence
Nostradamus
Overclocked
Secret Files 2 Puritas Cordis
Secret Files of Da Vinci: The Forbidden Manuscript
Shadow of Memories
Sherlock Holmes versus Jack the Ripper
So Blonde
Tears of Betrayal
Yoomurjak's Ring

Another surprise for me as I look over the lists is that the Discworld and Simon the Sorcerer games don't seem to get much attention. They seem pretty similar to the Monkey Island games to me which always seem to get quite a few mentions.

Vic,

As per to what was stated on flotsam's first post-rules:

3. 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.

So your series entries will be deleted unless you edit it now before the count gets done.

Hi all,
Another year, and a new list, the first without our Hall of Fame games.
It was close to the end, and first and second swapped places as I counted, but either would be worthy first choices. The top ten includes some venerable games and some newer offerings, and there is a good balance throughout the list. With sites like GOG, the oldies are no longer hard to get running, so can be expected to live on.
And notably of course, Isabelle doubled its vote happydance
As usual, two lists follow, one numerical, one alphabetical. I have started the numerical list with our Hall of Fame games, and included the Hall of Fame games in the alphabetical list. They are marked **.
I have used full as well as alternate titles where I have known them. I no doubt missed a few. In the numeric least, I have tried to use actual titles, the games on my shelf having the final say (including those that are numbered).
In the alphabetical list, I have taken some liberties with names to get series together where possible. It wasn’t always possible, so on a couple of occasions I have marked a game as a sequel.
I have numbered the series games to assist people with the order in which they were developed. They may not be sequels, just additional games in a series.
It can get confusing - there are a number of Dracula games, some in a series and some not. Ditto some others. Fan games complicate things a little further. Hopefully it is reasonably clear.
A casual game slipped in here and there, and one Dark-ish game, but I let them pass. Votes for Hall of Fame games were not counted.
Thanks to Chief who verified the count, and if errors remain, they are all mine.
And finally, thanks again to everyone that participated. I have a lot of new things to play!! bravo

Lol Becky, I realise how mind-boggling it is, but flotsam was always so seemingly calm (mind you, I noticed he had a small holiday in the middle, probably for sanity's sake). I reckon he was like the swan - apparently floating serenely along the river while below the surface his little feet were going like pistons lol
