I wonder why games would be different. Maybe the technology changes so quickly for games that graphics in sequels are automatically a lot better? Or maybe the original games can no longer be easily played on current computers so not as many people CAN play them? Or maybe the industry is so new that the original games made mistakes that now, a few years later seem obvious?
I agree - movie sequels are often worse, with a few exceptions... But then the gaming industry has always responded well to player feedbacks, while I have never been aware of any movie makers out there that personally talk to the actual viewers and get his/her direct opinion... perhaps that's the reason why?

Sanitarium
GK2
The Longest Journey
Grim Fandango
Riven
Myst/RealMyst
Black Dahlia

I should just put like 30 names in a hat and draw out 15. This is SO hard.

Myst
Osidian
Riven
Zork the Grand Inquisitor
Timelapse
Syberia
Darkfall
Amber
Shivers
Riddle of the Sphinx
The Dig

These last four, I can't remember the earlier ones in the series well enough to be able to pick which one I liked the best. So, just add my one vote to whichever comes up with the most votes. Hope this isn't cheating):

Journeyman Project
Gabriel Knight
Tex Murphy
Atlantis

Thanks again, Flotsam, for all your hard work!

Dang! I can't believe I left Obsidian out. So, Flotsam, there is a change here. In Osbisian out Lighthouse.

Discworld Noir (was Nightlong, sorry)
Curse of Monkey Island
Amerzone
Dracula Ressurrection

Too bad for Isabelle, Flotsam. I don't many people who (whom?) even own it. I still need to purchase it as the reviews on it sounded interesting but haven't a clue where.

The key is to list the 15 games that you would recommend to someone to play in this day and age.
This implies (to me) that the person is a newcomer. Again, it's tough to choose just 15.

Curse of Monkey Island
Torrin's Passage
Syberia
Obsidian
Zork Nemesis
Zork Grand Inquisitor
Grim Fandango
Longest Journey
Neverhood
Myst III: Exile
Lighthouse
Faust
Timelapse
Amerzone
Safecracker

Thank you, Steve. Your efforts are much appreciated. wave laugh
