2011 List!

2011 List! - 06/11/11 05:37 PM

Here we go for 2011 smile
For regulars to the annual List, review the rules and have at it. Remember to list alphabetically - it makes it so much easier to count.
For newbies or those like me who forget things, this thread is about answering the question "I want to play adventure games, what would you recommend".
Playability is the key. For that reason, you might not include something that is notoriously difficult to get to run, or which has clunky graphics by today's standard, or has no sound apart from a tinny midi soundtrack. You might not recommend a game that rocked your world but nobody elses. You might not recommend every episode of Nancy Drew because really, they are all the same and one is plenty grin
Or you might. Many old games can be got to run and sites like GOG make them newly accessible, who said you need flashy graphics to tell a good story, and perhaps too many Nancy games is actually never enough.
The point is its up to you - if you think a game you have played is worth recommending to someone else to play, you can put it on your list.
So long of course as its an adventure game. And we all know what they are. Dead Space isn't one, however beautifully scripted you think it might be, but Myst is.

There are some rules though:

1. Games in our Hall of Fame are ineligible and votes for them will not be counted. Those games are:

Amerzone
Black Mirror
Dark Fall: The Journal
Gabriel Knight: The Beast Within
Grim Fandango
Longest Journey
Myst
Riven
Sanitarium
Syberia
Syberia 2
Timelapse
Zork Nemesis
Zork Grand Inqusitor

(Hall of Fame games have been “retired” on the basis that they always did well, and we no longer needed to list them to know they were worth playing. It means you can spread your choices more widely, and we will list the Hall of Fame games alongside this years results when finished).

2. You can recommend a maximum of 20 games. You can choose to recommend less.
3. You cannot recommend a series. If you want to recommend all the Tex Murphy games, that will take 5 seperate recommendations, one for each game.
4. The following episodic adventures will be counted as one game - Sam & Max Season 1, Sam & Max Season 2, Sam and Max - The Devils Playground, Wallace & Grommit, Strong Bad, Casebook, AGON, Tales of Monkey Island, Enter the Story, Back to the Future, City of Secrets, Adams Venture and Dream Machine (and any others I missed!!)
5. Uru and its add ons will be counted as one game.
6. BadMojo and the Redux version are one game.
7. Directors cuts and Special Releases will be counted as the same game.
8. Adventure games only please (Dark Side games and Casual games get their own lists).

If at all possible, please list in alphabetical order - it makes counting so much easier. In doing so, ignore "the" (so The Lost Crown would be under "L" for Lost)

The thread stays open for about 3 weeks, and I will post updates as we go. Also, avoid editiing your lists after posting because Chief and I count as we go, and may miss a change.
So who wants to go first?

One week down, and some interesting reading so far.
Some new games are doing very well (Lost Horizon, Grey matter) and some oldies keep on keeping on (GK1, Broken Sword 1).
Five games starting with numbers have been listed, and Isabelle already has more votes than all the games starting with H put together.

Is it a good idea for an adventure game title to include the word "lost"? grin

Evidently not! The game I thought I'd see named most often hasn't appeared very often at all! And I really thought it was a shoo-in for the game of the year.

Re: This years List! - 06/27/11 07:00 AM

Well I own six excellent games that have "Lost" in the title - but didn't included all of them on my list.

[Solely due to the daunting task of whittling my recommendations down to 15 lol]

Quote:
2. You can recommend a maximum of 20 games. You can choose to recommend less.

Re: This years List! - 07/03/11 04:56 PM

Posted by: flotsam

Re: This years List! - 07/03/11 06:14 PM

Hi all,
Another year, and a new list.
Overall votes were down on previous years, so games that held their own or increased their votes did particularly well. So tribute must be paid to Isabelle for standing strong! happydance
It was closer than I thought it might be, and clearly I have to play the game that finished second – must be good to do so well in its first year.
Its two in a row for the first placed game, and only Hall of Fame games have ever finished in front of it. Which suggests it might be eventually be headed there itself.
As always, two lists follow, one numerical, one alphabetical. I have started the numerical list with the Hall of Fame games, and included the Hall of Fame games in the alphabetical list. They are marked **.
I have used full as well as alternate titles where I have known them, and in the numeric least, I have tried to use actual titles, the games on my shelf having the final say (including those that are numbered).
I have taken some liberties with names in the alphabetical list to get series together where possible. It wasn’t always possible, so on a couple of occasions I have marked a game as a sequel.
As I did last year, I have numbered the series games to assist people with the order in which they were developed. They may not be sequels, just additional games in a series.
It can get confusing - there are a number of Dracula games, some in a series and some not. Ditto some others. Fan games complicate things a little further. Hopefully it is reasonably clear.
A casual game slipped in here and there, and one Dark-ish game, but I let them pass. Votes for Hall of Fame games were not counted.
Thanks to Chief who verified the count, and if errors remain, they are all mine. yes

Thank you Flotsam for the huge work and thank you Chief for proof-reading!
I'm glad to see that new and newish games are in top position, it's a good sign for us gamers and all the gaming industry.
And I can see that I'm still the only one who truly enjoyed King's Quest 8! lol

Even though the newer games came out on top it was nice to see strong showings by the older games like Gabriel Knight, Broken Sword, Tex Murphy, Kings Quest, and Morpheus. thumbsup
