Here they are:

Nightlong
Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atalantis
Bureau 13
Alone in the Dark 2
Callahan's
Neverhood
Kyrandia 1
Noctropolis
Woodruff & the Schnibble
Innocent Until Caught
Space Quest 6
Beneath a Steel Sky
The Dig
Sam & Max
Ween: The Prophecy

I just noticed that all of mine are 3rd person, 2D animated games (or was The Prophecy 1st person?). A good story with interesting characters and logic based puzzles make these games among the best (IMHO). We still haven't played Discworld, Monkey Island, Tex Murphy, etc. etc. - maybe next time they'll be on my list.

Well since I've played a few new games since last year and now grouping a series isn't allowed my list is a little bit different than the last one.

I am surprised with all the new games I did play this last year that some of them didn't make it to my list, as they seemed to be faves of quite a few other boomers here.

Here goes:
Thief Gold
Black Dahlia
Myst Exile
Real Myst
Beyond Atlantis
Goblins 3(the third one)
Ripper
Obsidian
Ring
Shivers 2(the second one)
Drakan
Zork 1(the first one)
Zork TGI
Dracula the Ressurection
Blade Runner

Sassy

I'm not as big a gamer as most people here. I have many unfinished games which I can't recommend, because I haven't finished, but I have a few that are favorites and some others I've enjoyed.

Myst/realMyst (definitely realMyst if your machine meets the specs)
Riven
Myst III: Exile

I also liked:
Journeyman 3: Legacy of Time
Riddle of the Sphinx
Aztec: The Sacred Amulet
Timelapse

Can't think of any more...
