My list of adventure games - short by gameboomer standards - I have lots more to play!

Adventure Games
- Myst
- Obsidian
- Grim Fandango
- Bad Milk
- The Longest Journey
- Amerzone
- Myst III Exile
- Sanitarium
- Syberia (gambling that I'll love this from the demo)
- Dark Fall (gambling that I'll love this from the demo)

Non Adventure Games
- Morrowind
- Bejeweled (for the Palm OS, don't know if this is allowed)
- Zap2016 (for the Palm OS, don't know if this is allowed)

Glad to see that someone else listed Obsidian. I love the game, and it's rarely mentioned. It's also really, really hard to find, I'm so glad I have my copy.

THis is the identical list from last year. I sure wish it didn't have to be but there were no games IMHO that came out last year that were worthy of being on this list.

As far as non adventueres go, asking for 3 is impossible for me to narrow down. I think I will follow Ray's counting scheme laugh laugh laugh

Baldur's Gate 2( with TOB)
Deus Ex ( action with RPG elements)
Freedom Force ( strategy with RPG elements)
Heroes of Might and Magic complete( turn based fantasy strategy)
Icewind dale( with add ons)
Planescape Torment
