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

flotsam, hi,

Not sure if the order matters, so I'll put them in order just in case:

1. Gabriel Knight 3: Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned
2. The Pandora Directive
3. Realms of the Haunting
4. Day of the Tentacle
5. Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
6. Myst
7. Monkey Island 2: Le'Chuck's Revenge
8. The Last Express
9. Riven
10. The Moment of Silence
11. Discworld Noir
12. The Longest Journey
13. Under a Killing Moon
14. Dark Fall: The Journal
15. Morpheus

Also not sure that you will classify Realms of the Haunting as adventure, but what the hey evil

Cheers,
metzomagic

I liked the editorializing! I'm a bit surprised myself by the absence of the cockroach.
