It is almost too hard to just pick 10! cry Since lately I'm playing more shooters than adventure games, just love the freedom of running around in 3D environments, plus all of them have excellent stories too.... So here goes, I played all of them on a PC:

Thief Gold
Outcast
Chronicles of Riddick
Unreal 2: The Awakening
Alice
No One Lives Forever
Prince of Persia: Sands of Time
Wheel of Time
Silent Hill 2
Splinter Cell

And here is a shameless plug for some of my faves that I had to leave off that you shouldn't miss playing. Max Payne 1&2, Thief 3:Deadly Shadows, Drakan, Return to Castle Wolfenstien, Nocturne, Blair Witch 1, Undying, Unreal & expansion Return to Na Pali, Silent Hill 3&4, Splinter Cell2: Pandora Tomorrow, NOLF 2.

Here's looking forward to playing Doom3,Splinter Cell:Chaos Theory, and Far Cry, whenever I finally pick them up. laugh

Sassy

OK a little early but real life is going to intervene tonight so better to be early than late.
Divine Divinity and Morrowind switch places this time, with Divine Divinity taking the honours. Knights of the Old Republic did well and came third, and Outcast showed its staying power.
Proving that flattery does work Quest For Glory snuck in a series vote, and proving that the dark side is in the eye of the beholder both Syberias got a mention.
A numerical list and an alphabetical list follow, and many thanks to Nickie for the categories. bravo
Thanks again everyone smile

And another Dark Side Twisty comes to an exciting close!

Thanks to Flotsam and Nickie for their hard work!

I wonder if Larian knows how popular their game (Divinity) is here...they should think about giving us all free copies of DD2 when it's released whistle

It's also interesting how popular Outcast still is, sad there is no sequel on the horizon frown

My work was nothing at all, while you did a great job that required lots of time, Flotsam, and I sure thank you for it! These are ever so helpful lists for newbies to these genres. It's wonderful to see that there are several greats that remain on the list after all this time.

lol Schwab, they do know, but flattery doesn't seem to work as far as prices go...
