Hi to all, this is a great idea. Can't resist putting in my two cents worth. I'm going to attempt to list them in order of interest, but it probably won't end up that way because I find myself changing them in my mind over and over and over...

1. Shivers
2. Myst III Exile
3. The Black Dahlia
4. Full Moon In San Francisco
5. Gabriel Knight 2 The Beast Within
6. Amber Journey's Beyond
7. The Omega Stone
8. Nancy Drew The Final Scene
9. Nancy Drew Ghost Dogs Of Moon Lake
10. Callahan's Crosstime Saloon
11. Clandestiny
12. Phantasmagoria 2 Puzzle Of Flesh
13. The Dame Was Loaded
14. Tex Murphy Under A Killing Moon
15. Phantasmagoria

As many have already said, there are many, many more that I have not listed (can you say Sanitarium) but the best part is reading all the other lists and seeing LOTS of games that I have yet to play. Wait till next year!! Sky.....

I think I see the clue,
but is it one, or is it two?
I'll just move this one here,
dang the answer isn't clear!
Oh geeez now what do I do?

Well here tis - the final results.
165 games were mentioned abd nearly 100 boomers participated.
As usual, an alphabetical and numerical list will follow. I have taken some liberties with the names where series or sequels are involved, and have tried to use full and alternate titles where possible.
Any errors are of course my own.
The winner might surprise. As I said at the start I thought there would be a "new" first place. No prizes for guessing which game I thought it would be. But there wasn't much in it.
Great to see two releases from last year so prominent, yet at the same time those oldies but goodies keep hanging in there.
And as I say every year, every game on this list is a good one, as at least one boomer thought it was worth recommending out of all the games out there.
So without further ado, here are the results thumbsup

Thankyou Flotsam. A whopper of a job, really well done.

Looking at the no.1 and no.2, I wonder how much influence on those game positions can be attributed to the fact that TLJ has been around much longer and, so, everyone has had plenty of opportunity to play it. If that's the case then it should follow that next year TLJ will be ranked below Syberia (1). 'The Longest Journey' will still sneak ahead on my list, however.

Great job flotsam! We really appreciate all your hard work! bravo thumbsup :kiss:

I was very pleased to see Dark Fall and Syberia make the top 5! Wahoo!

I was very surprised to see Riven make the top 5 though, even if it is my favorite game. wink
