2. Day of the Tentacle
3. Myst/Real Myst
4. The Curse of Monkey Island
5. Rama
6. Timelapse
7. Riddle of Master Lu
8. Journeyman Project 2: Buried in Time
9. The Beast Within: A Gabriel Knight Mystery
10. Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
11. Zork: Grand Inquisitor
12. Zork: Nemesis
13. Obsidian
14. Toonstruck
15. Grim Fandango

Non-Adventures
1. Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation
2. Outcast
3. Diablo 2 with Lord of Destruction Expansion

Flotsam, you always to a great job on these lysts. Thanks for all of your effort.

Its great that more of the games GameBoomers play will be on a list (RPG/Action List).

A problem I see is classifying games. It appears that games in the future are going to make it ever harder.

So, I suggest there be one list of favorite games. On this list are the favorite games of the Boomer voting. The end result list will have a ranking of the most popular games of the GameBoomers.

To see the most popular adventure game, go down the list and whatever game you consider adventure you come to first, then that is the most popular.

If you want to see the most popular Action game, then go down the list until you come to a game you consider an action game and that is the most popular action game.

And so forth. That way, The SIMS is included, as is Stronghold and (why not) Snood!

Just my two cents worth as I am afraid it just gets harder from here.

Hello everyone!

I've only read the discussion board before, but I couldn't help myself from posting this list.

I've tried to limit myself to games that are fairly "modern", and should be playable on most new computers. To make this a little easier for myself, I've only included one game each from my favourite series.

So, here we go:

1. The Longest Journey
2. Gabriel Knight II: The Beast Within
3. Blade Runner
4. King's Quest: Mask of Eternity
5. Leisure Suit Larry (remake)
6. Grim Fandango
7. Curse of Monkey Island
8. Tex Murphy: Overseer
9. Sanitarium
10. Black Out
11. Discworld Noir
12. Quest For Glory IV: Dragon Fire
13. Black Dahlia
14. Broken Sword II: The Smoking Mirror
15. Space Quest IV: Roger Wilco and the Time Rippers

Non-adventures:
1. Anachronox
2. System Shock II
3. Deus Ex
