Seems to me that many of us play series as one long game. I have done that with the BGs, Thiefs, Gothics and Might & Magic games to mention a few. However, for the list, in no special order:

Baldur's Gate 1
Baldur's Gate 2
Thief 1
Thief 2
Indiana Jones & the Infernal Machine
Divine Divinity
Planescape Torment
Gothic 1
Gothic 2

Alas, I must leave out so many wonderful hours of fun. Great gaming! wave

Moi try to pull a fast one???? Never, I say, never.

As my esteemed colleague from the state of Illinois stated (and elequantely I might add) Quest for Glory is more one long story that is simply broken up into several managable shall we say, chapters - yes, let's say chapters. And as such it is technically one long game so.......... laugh

I took my first foray into the dark side with Psychonauts and I have to say it was fabulous. So that's my only vote. I sure am getting great ideas from you guys. Thanks!

I have 3 Galapagos- Mendels Escape- becaise its maddening- but fun anyway- and Harry potter- the first 2- I couldn't finish the 3rd because they wouldn't let me use my gamepad so that was a major drawback-

Hi there,
Divine Divinity leads the way with 1 week to go.
Intriguing sounding ones I must check out are Psychonaut and the two Gothics, and how could one resist something titled Hordes of the Underdark. If I ever make a game it will have to have a name something like that (Evil Minions of the Nether Regions maybe).
Well done to those who resisted the temptation to list those so called long chapter thingys, but I will make special mention of QG in my summary at the end (bribery and flattery does bring results).
Thanks metzo for the clarification, and do I recall that Kult and Heretic are the same or at least related?
Quantity has a quality all of its own

Yep Flotsam, if anyone lists Kult, Heretic or Heretic Kingdoms, they are more than likely referring to the same game (released by different name in different countries). However, you do have one vote for Heretic II, which is in no way related to the other game. And you just thought it was going to be easy. wink

I have to contribute to this list despite getting very little game time nowadays, thanks to puppy and I tend to concentrate on my consoles when ever I am free. However these are my top recommendations in no particular order:

Populous The Promised Lands
Age of Empires
The Haley Horse experience.
