This is always so difficult because some of these games if I played them for the first time today would probably not be on the list. I choose these based on the degree of pleasure they gave me at the time I first played them.

Myst
Riven
Exile
Obsidian
Amber
Twinsen's Oddysey
Zork, the Grand Inquisitor
Shivers I
Gabriel Knight III
ROTS
Timelapse
Pandora Directive
The Dig
Atlantis III
King's Quest VI

Non-adventure (although I contine to disagree that my favorite games, the Thief series, are put into this category:

Thief Gold
Thief the Metal Age
Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine

Ok, Ok, here's my list in alphabetical order. Limited mostly by the fact that I have vastly more unplayed adventure games than I do played games (is that a bad thing?).

1) Amber Journeys Beyond
2) Bad Mojo (one of my all time favorites)
3) Blade Runner
4) Feeble Files
5) Myst (the game that got me started)
6) Myst Exile
7) Neverhood, the
8) Obsidian (wish I had never traded it...)
9) Rent-A-Hero
10) Riven
11) Sam & Max Hit the Road
12) Sanitarium
13) The 7th Guest
14) The Longest Journey
15) Under A Killing Moon

Non-Adventure games:

Not too sure - guess I haven't played too many non-adventure games... How about:

1) Pandora's Box
2) Jewels of the Oracle
3) You Don't Know Jack (OK. this is not an RPG, Action/Adventure Game, Sim, etc. - but it sure is a hoot to play!).

Hi All,
And the winners are…..The Longest Journey and Outcast happydance
So that’s it for another year. As with previous years, two posts follow, one an alphabetical list, the other from top to bottom.
Alternative titles are shown where known. I have taken some liberties with the names of some games in the alphabetical list in order to list series games together.
An asterix indicates it is available for Mac.
All up, 89 people posted and 179 adventure games were recommended.
This is the third year and each time we have had a different top game. This years most recommended game, The Longest Journey, got out in front early and stayed there.
There were 5 new games in the top 10 compared to last year, the most notable movers being Zork GI, up from 15th to 6th, and Myst: Exile from 13th to equal 4th. Going the other way, Shivers went from 5th to 12th and Timelapse from 6th to 16th.
Others to move noticeably were Monkey Island 1 and 2, Discworld, Nancy Drew: Message in a Haunted Mansion and Simon the Sorcerer, some going up and others down. The rest you will have to look at yourself smile .
Temujin deserves a special mention. It didn’t appear on last years list at all, but got double figures this year.
Games to watch out for next year will probably be The Watchmaker, Syberia and Dark Fall, all of which managed an appearance this year despite only being available for about 5 minutes.
The non-adventures proved slightly problematic, with some featuring on both lists (and non-adventure players having odd counting systems <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" /> ). Where a game appeared on both lists, I have combined the votes and listed them in both lists. A third post follows showing those non-adventures which were mentioned more than once.
All errors are my own, but are hopefully minimal. I remain as ever hopelessly inadequate when it comes to using the more sophisticated formatting aspects of this BB, so I apologise for the formatting.
Finally, as I said the last two years, any game on this list must be worth playing as someone thought it was worthy enough to mention.
