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

Escape from Monkey Island
Darkfall 1
Darkfall 2
Traitors Gate 1
Broken Sword 1
Broken Sword 2
Broken Sword 3
Salaambo

Syberia I
Dark Fall
Zork GI
Obsidian
King's Quest VI
Gabriel Knight, Sins of the Fathers
Timelapse
Journeyman Project III

I'd forgotten about Shivers. I should have squeezed that in somewhere.

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
