Hi,
Must be all that decadence Rick!
I will post summaries Monday morning my time. That will be late Sunday in the USA. I know you have more than one timezone, but they aren't my strong suit, so I can't get any closer than that.
We can then close the thread.

Just a suggestion, but this thread has only been open 10 ( 11? ) days, maybe you should let it run for another week. There are still many regulars that haven't posted yet. What with schools getting out, Graduations, etc., a lot of people have been quite busy this last week or two.

Hi,
I did suggest till the end of the month in the starting post, and I didn't realise it was only 11 days.
Cos it slowed down, I just assumed everyone had posted that was going to.
At granny's request, and I got some e-mails as well, what say we hold off for another week. I will post summaries next Monday. They are ready to go so I will just up-date them.
In the meantime, idarcy asked for the list to show Mac games. If I e-mail you a list idarcy (and MacDee??) can you e-mail me back the ones that are Mac-ed?

ok, here's mine - I haven't played that many but the ones I would recommend are:

Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
Broken Sword 1 and 2
GK1
Fatal Illusion (except for bugs)

That's basically all the games that I've played that I would recommend. I wouldn't recommend Feeble Files because, though fun, it was far too hard to even attempt to play without a walkthrough (for me at least!). I also didn't much like Amerzone - the locations and puzzles were too samey. GK2 I haven't finished yet, and so far there has been too much reading, and having to have people read things out loud, which had got me down. By the time I end I might want to recommend it I guess, but not yet. Apart from that, I've just not played lots of the favourites that have been mentioned so far...

Reenie,

Dark Side of the Moon certainly made my list.(See above) One of my all time favs.

BTW, I see some have mentioned 3 Skulls of the Toltecs. I know this is one of Mr. Bill's sleeper hits, but does anyone know where I could buy a copy? Thanks,

Obsidian
Morpheus
Shivers
Myst
Riven
Zork Nemesis
Rama
Gabriel Knigh II
Timelapse
Lighthouse

I would just have loved to put "9 - Last Resort on the list", however it isn't an easy game, and maybe not the best to recommend. Rama is also a game not easily recommended, but I was so totaly proud of myself when I finished it (I suck at math), that it had to go on the list, I wish for more people to experience the same kind of joy!

Writing the list was hard, I thought that I've played soooo many games, what to chose and so on. However, reading through the other lists, I realize that there are quite a few games left to discover. I'm going to have to get myself a PC one of these days... [blip].

Great idea with the lists! //emma//

Hi,
A quick update.
We have 105 games on the list and 54 respondents. There are 15 games with more than 10 recommendations, and another 13 with 5 or more.
Thanks to idarcy and macdee, the final lists will be mac friendly.
See you next Monday.

Thanks for all your work on compiling this list, and thanks as well to idarcy and ~MacDee for their Mac clarifications. That will help me out a lot!
