Here we are again. Doesn't time fly.
For new members, the aim of this thread is to compile a list of adventure game recommendations from the collected wisdom of us all. It is intended to be a resource to help people decide what game to play next.
Its also a bit of fun.
When I first joined GB, my best source of game recommendations was other boomers. I had no idea there were so many adventure games. I wanted to find out what was good and what I should play. The resulting list, and lists for each subsequent year, are the collected wisdom of all participating boomers.
You bet to list 15 games that you would recommend to someone to play in this day and age. They are not necessarily your own favourite 15 games but they might be. You might however decide to recommend a cross-section of styles or types. You might love a particular game but believe it is too much a product of your own idiosyncracies to recommend, or you might not recommend it because it is notoriously hard to get running on anything later than a 386 machine. There is no rule that says you can’t recommend such games; it is up to you.
No game is excluded, if it meets the criteria of being an adventure game. We all know what that is when we see it, so don’t get too hung up on criteria.
There are some rules though:

1. You can recommend a maximum of 15 games. You can choose to recommend less.
2. You cannot recommend a series. If you want to recommend all the Tex Murphy games, that will take 5 seperate recommendations, one for each game.
3. Myst and RealMyst will be counted as one game.
4. Uru and its add ons will be counted as one game.
5. Adventure games only please (other games get there own list later).

The thread stays open for about three weeks, and I will post intermittent updates. It is always compulsory to get more posts than the year before.
So here to get things started are my 15 recommendations.

Riven
The Longest Journey
GK2: The Beast Within
Syberia 2
Myst Revelation
Morpheus
Byzantine
Dark Fall
Faust
BS3: The Sleeping Dragon
Blackstone Chronicles
Zork Grand Inquisitor
Schizm

Just a question -- Is Uru Complete Chronicles considered a compilation of separate games (you have to vote separately for Ages of Myst, To D'ni, and Path of the Shell the way Betty Lou did). Or is it really one game? (Betty Lou could just vote for Uru, which opens up two other slots for her to vote.)

My list is narrowed down to 16. Agonizing. help

Personally, I'd consider Uru Complete Chronicles one game. The Ages Beyond Myst portion is really the only bit with a real beginning, middle and ending, IMHO. The other bits are expansion packs, and I would make a distinction between an "expansion pack" and a "game." (tho on the other hand, while I'd certainly recommend Uru Ages Beyond, including POTS makes me have second thoughts....)

So here's my list, anyway (which starts oddly similar to Flotsam's, I notice...)

Riven
GK2: The Beast Within
The Longest Journey
Beyond Atlantis (Atlantis 2)
Darkfall
Myst
Syberia
Sanitarium
Rhem
GK1: Sins of the Fathers
Aura, Fate of the Ages
GK3: Blood of the Sacred etc.
Amber, Journeys Beyond
Uru Complete Chronicles
Curse of Monkey Island

This is so tough because some of the classic games that I would say everyone should play just don't hold up graphically to todays standards. So here goes with my favorites:

1. Gabriel Knight 2 The Beast Within
2. Discworld 1
3. Discworld 2
4. LeChucks Revenge Monkey Island 2
5. The Longest Journey
6. Syberia
7. The Black Mirror
8. Curse of Monkey Island Monkey Island 3
9. Broken Sword 1 Circle of Blood
10. Simon the Sorcerer 2 The Lion,the Wizard and the Wardrobe
11. Day of the Tenacle Maniac Mansion 2
12. Legend of Kyrandia Book 1
13. Secret of Monkey Island Monkey Island 1
14. Simon the Sorcerer 1
15. Runaway A Road Adventure

I also want to list the games I left off since they are older and not up to the graphic standards of todays games. These games might be older but they are well worth playing if you have missed them.
Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders-
Awesome Puzzles.
The Dig- Excellent music and atmosphere.
Tony Tough and the Night of the Roasted Moths
Challenging puzzles and funny voice acting.
Grim Fandango- A classic.
Fable- Short but fun.
Kings Quest 2- An oldie but goodie.
Kings Quest 7- Sierra games were always fun.
Dracula 1 & 2- I especially loved 2.
Space Quest Series- Monkey Island/Discworld
humor mixed with wicked puzzles.

happydance bravo

Sorry for the delay. I was just counting the tallys and saw the query re Uru.
I will count Uru and its add ons as one game; Uru Chronicles.
I will amend the rules at the start.

Hi all,
Pithy insights and summaries follow.
Nearly 160 games nominated so far, including 30 or so that weren't mentioned at all last year.
The Myst series of games are the most recommended across a whole series, and considering its comparatively short life (and the fact that it remains unavailable to many of us) Still Life is doing well.
Black Mirror, Dark Fall, TLJ, GK2 and Syberia have already been recommended by at least 20 boomers.
Good to see Ico, Ceremony of Innocence and Shadow of Destiny have been mentioned (I reserve to myself the luxury of editorialising), but the cockroach is yet to be seen.
Black is the colour of choice, and Dark is much preferred to Light.
Sleeping Dragons are preferred to the riding kind, but not by much, and clocks appear to be on the outer, but cursing is admired by many.
Several boomers frequent the saloon, but none the bar, and so far we prefer our titanics in space.
Stay tuned woozy

Well, in my list there have been some shifts, but some have stayed right up there. SYBERIA II missed out because of my preference for 1st person, puzzle-laden, look-all-around-up-and-down games, though it comes up pretty high because of the plot and the great scenery. Anyway, my list:

1... BLACK DAHLIA
2... SCHIZM I
3... MYST II - RIVEN
4... BYZANTINE
5... MYST III - EXILE
6... THE LONGEST JOURNEY
7... GABRIEL KNIGHT III - BLOOD OF THE SACRED
8... SHIVERS I
9... GABRIEL KNIGHT II - THE BEAST WITHIN
10.. FAUST
11.. TIMELAPSE
12.. LEGEND OF THE PROPHET AND THE ASSASSIN
13.. ZORK NEMESIS
14.. AURA - FATE OF THE AGES
15.. CYDONIA - LIGHTBRINGER

I had to leave off some very good ones, such as RAMA, REAH, MYST, OBSIDIAN, LIGHTHOUSE, BLACKSTONE CHRONICLES, SYBERIA II, AND SANITARIUM, but that's how it goes when only 15 are allowed. laugh

It suddenly dawned on me that there are two potential reasons for a list like this. First, to acknowledge artistic greatness, sort of like the American Film Institute's list of all time greatest movies (see www.afi.com/tvevents/100years/movies.aspx). Note that there are a lot of old movies on this list, going back to 1915. Or second, to help newer folks find games they might like. I suspect that a lot of the old hands already know what they like and probably have them. It doesn't matter how great a game is if you can't get it. So I'm modifying my approach some this year. I looked over some of my favorite sources and picked out some of my favorites that are still available commercially. Every one of these games is on my Top 15 list or pretty close. Let me emphasize that I am in no way associated with www.cdaccess.com or www.cdromshop.com. If you haven't played these games, get them while the getting is good.

Broken Sword: Circle of Blood CdAccess $20
Byzantine: The Betrayal CdAccess $20
Diskworld Noir CdAccess $20
Gabriel Knight 3 CdAccess $20
The Longest Journey CdAccess $20 a little bawdy, but epic
The Riddle of Master Lu CdAccess $20 caveat: tough game to run
Syberia lots of places
The Dig CDROMshop $24

OK, here's a couple of commercial games that the developers have generously released for free. You can get the ScummVM emulator software and the games here: www.scummvm.org/downloads.php
Beneath a Steel Sky By the folks that did Broken Sword
Flight of the Amazon Queen Very Monkey Islandish

Then finally, here are the ones near and dear to my heart that I have room left to list. These will be more difficult to find, but if you ever run across them don't hesitate.
The Secret of Monkey Island
Tex Murphy: Under A Killing Moon
Tex Murphy: The Pandora Directive
Gabriel Knight: The Beast Within
Zork Grand Inquisitor

Me and Mrs. Fongo were hanging out at the Adventure Mansion this evening, and thought we'd put together our top 15 for the year.

After a series of complex negotiations, brutal eliminations, and a few tears (I felt much better after she got me some ice cream), we got it together.

After all that, the list looks pretty similar to last year:

Full Throttle
Riven
Syberia
Uru: Ages Beyond Myst
Morpheus
Myst IV Revelation
Amber: Journeys Beyond
Dark Fall
Grim Fandango
Zork Nemesis
Byzantine: The Betrayal
The Neverhood
Bad Mojo
Longest Journey
Tex Murphy: Overseer

Dark Fall, Syberia and Myst IV were the additions this year, with Myst (a little dated), Myst Exile (we preferred Revelation), and Riddle of the Sphinx walking the plank.

Hi ho,
We reach the half way point (more or less) and the No 1 recommendations from previous years all continue to do well, Myst being the least recommended of the previous "winners" so far.
Syberia narrowly heads the list from TLJ.
Special mention to Fongo for the avatar and mentioning the cockroach.

Lucky last syd, and good to see.
The votes are in and the ballot box is closed. Numbers were down on last year which just means I will cajole you lots next year. It remains fun and its always a pleasure.
What to say? Still Life made a strong appearance for a game still not played by many, and whilst the top 3 remained the same, there was movement below that. 50 or so games were mentioned that weren’t mentioned last year, some obviously new, but many old and obviously revered.
Isabelle wasn’t mentioned but you should play it if you can.
As always there is a numerical and an alphabetical list. I have taken some liberties with names to get series games together on the alphabetical list, and because of some personal prejudices; I refuse to call the Schizm games Mysterious Journey 1 and 2, and Beyond the Beyond of Atlantis 2 Too (or whatever its called) is too [blip] confusing.
Alternate names are listed where I could, as are full names wherever possible. Errors are all my own.
All the games must be worth playing – they were mentioned by somebody from among all the games they have played. Given they keep releasing new ones I fear I will never catch up, but I only have myself to blame if I play a dud.
Happy playing smile
