wave I really havn't played enough adventure games to come up with 15, but I'll list my favorites so far-I have some of the games people have listed, but havn't played them yet cry -(my BAAGing got out of hand when I first became addicted to playing games.) I also have among my favorites some action games, but here is not the place to list those.

Syberia 2
Riven
Exile
Zork Nemisis
Under a Killing Moon
Journeyman 3
The Longest Journey

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
