No particular order as it would be hard with some of these to rate one above the other.

Black Dahlia
Sanitarium
Tex murphy Pandora Directive
Under a Killing Moon
Overseer

Gabriel Knight: Beast Within
Sins of the Father

Zork: Return to Zork
Nemesis
Grand Inquisitor

Phantasmagoria and Phantas. 2 Puzzle of the Flesh.
Ripper
Noctropolis ( might be really hard to find and straight DOS game but worth the attempt, really good)

Blackstone Chronicles

So far Faust and both Broken Sword games (Circle of Blood and Smoking Mirror)look really good but as I haven't finished them I'm hesitant to add to list.

Day of the Tentacle
Callahan's Crosstime Saloon
Grim Fandango
Riven
Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars
Broken Sword: The Other One (forgot thename!)

(4) Byzantine
(5) Cassandra Galleries
(6) Dark Side Of The Moon
(7) The Forgotten..It Begins
(8) Frankenstein Through The Eyes Of A Monster
(9) The Longest Journey
(10) The Messenger
(11) Myst
(12) Rama
(13) Riddle of the Sphinx
(14) Riven
(15) The Sacred Amulet
Love,Betty Lou

Hi there,
Over 100 games mentioned already, with almost 30 of them not being on last years list. Some of those are obviously new releases, but "non-new" ones include Rent a Hero, Fable, Secrets of the Luxor, Noctropolis, Dark Seed and Twinsens Odyssey.
Most recommended so far is The Longest Journey, with Myst, Riven and GK2 close behind.
I am away with work this week so will post the next up-date next weekend.
