Hey! Hey!, Ray Bres. I'm so glad that someone has finally mentioned one of my favorites, The
Last Express. I'm so glad that so many others have mentioned my all time favorite, Byzantine.
I know it is too late to be counted but I just had to get my two cents in.

Another year, another list. That makes seven. happydance
Good games keep on keeping on. Its yet another top spot for the most recommended game Syberia, making it 3 in a row, with 65% of participants putting it on their list. It also cleared out a little from the field this year.
Number 2 is The Longest Journey, which has been the top game twice and second each other time it has appeared, and only Syberia has ever finished in front of it.
The staying power of those 2 games is clear.
Which doesn't mean there aren't new games making their mark. Scratches, Still Life and Keepsake were all released not too long ago and all rated strongly. Barrow Hill did particularly well given its relative short release. Black Mirror and Dark Fall aren’t that old either.
Dreamfall also did well considering its short shelf life so far. I expect it to make a big leap next year.
Small independent games continue to prove that passion to the genre can produce little gems; Barrow Hill and Dark Fall are the two standouts, with Rhem not far behind.
Freeware games keep popping up too, which shows good fun can be had for no cost at all.
The oldest game was (by my reckoning) released in 1989, proving there is life in the oldies yet.
In my humble opinion, the game not on the list you should play is Isabelle.
Hopefully you will find the list helpful when deciding what to play. Remember that even games with only 1 recommendation were considered good enough to mention by someone from among all the games they have played.
Its probably worth mentioning to check a review or two to find out more about the game. Some of the games on the list will have some action, some will be inventory quests, others more straight puzzle oriented. If you don't like games with certain attributes, check them out more before shelling out your $$.
As usual, two lists follow. The first is chronological, the second alphabetical. Tied votes in the numerical list are listed alphabetically, not in any order of preference or judgement. I have taken liberties with names in the alphabetical list to get sequels together, and have included full and alternative titles where I know them.
Any mistakes are my own and I apologise in advance.
Its always a pleasure (even if it comes around way to quickly for my advancing years) lol

Nice. But one suggestion. Might have been easier to read all that in a new topic named results.

Skeeter,

Thanks. This thread will be archived sometime later. So it is best that they are all together.

You can also check the results at the Other Game Info Page. The top 50 are listed in order of choice and the rest can be viewed by clicking on the link at the top.
