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...)

GK2: The Beast Within
The Longest Journey
Beyond Atlantis (Atlantis 2)
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

Are you sure we can’t make it 50 instead of 15, Flotsam? I always feel like I'm leaving out old friends. Well, anyway, here's mine:

Beyond Atlantis
Journeyman Project 3: Legacy of Time
Lighthouse: The Dark Being
Myst III: Exile
Myst IV: Revelation
Riddle of the Sphinx
Starship Titanic
Zork Grand Inquisitor
Why is abbreviation such a long word?
