Gawd this is hard... I simplified the series dilemma by picking IMHO the best of the bunch - figuring if you play one - you'll seek out the rest (I did)

Sigh _ I hate limits

In no order of preference

1. GK2 - The Beast Within
2. Atlantis 2
3. Journeyman 3
4. The Dig
5. Curse of Monkey Island
6. The Longest Journey
7. Grim Fandango
8. S. Holmes: The Case of The Rose Tattoo
9. Black Dahlia
10. Pandora Directive
11. Zork Grand Inquisitor
12. Circle of Blood/ BS 1
13. Outcast
14. Spycraft (great realism game)
15. Exile (what was I thinking of - I left this off)

I haven't (yet) played 15 games I'd recommend, maybe next year? I do have some of your recommendations on my shelves Anyway, here's my list in alphabetical order:

Day of the Tentacle
Myst
Obsidian (haven't finished playing yet but I'll still recommend it)
Riven
Simon the Sorcerer
Simon the Sorcerer 2
Zork Grand Inquisitor
Zork Nemesis

Wouldn't it be interesting to make a list with all the games we'd never ever recommend to our worst enemys?

And Grim Fandango and Curse of Monkey Island 3...
