Let's list again! 2013

Let's list again! 2013 - 06/29/13 04:18 AM

Here we go again!

For all those new boomers, and for the rest of us a year older, its that time where we answer the question for a newbie player "If I want to play an adventure game, what would you recommend".

Playability is the key. Your oldie but completely impossible to get going on a modern machine favourite game might therefore not make the list, but Gog-ness might mean it does. Variety might dictate that not every Myst clone should be included, but is too much Myst really enough??

In the end its up to you - if you think a game you have played is worth recommending to someone else to play, put it on your list. But only if its an adventure game. We know what they are (Quake no - does anyone but me remebmer Quake - Monkey Island yes) and there is some latitude for those fuzzy round the edges games that are hard to define Portal 2).

There are some rules though, and these are they:

1. Games in our Hall of Fame are ineligible, on the basis that we know they are worth playing else why would they be in there. Votes for those games won't be counted. Those games are:

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

(being ineligible 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. Episodic adventures will be counted as one game, regardless of where they are up to in the series.
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 (Dark Side games and Casual games get their own lists).
9. PC games please (although if you sneak a console game in I won't tell)
10. Isabelle counts double (not really happydance)

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

The thread stays open for about 3 weeks, and I will post updates as we go. Also, avoid editing your lists after posting because Chief and I count as we go, and may miss a change.

So who is first?

Re: Let's list again! - 06/29/13 10:58 AM

Ha, I must have a sixth sense about these lists, as I tend to come back just in time for them after long hiatuses. lol

I've also noticed that they are getting harder and harder each year. There are just too many good games fighting to be on it, even with the Hall of Fame exclusions. lol I had to recommend only one Runaway this time, so I went with the first, even though the second is my favorite. Always better to start at the beginning. grin

Here is my list this year:

Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars
Cognition
Culpa Innata
Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav, The
Dig, The
Dreamfall: The Longest Journey
Edna and Harvey: The Breakout
Gabriel Knight 1: The Sins of the Fathers
Gabriel Knight 3: Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned
Gray Matter

Re: Let's list again! 2013 - 07/23/13 04:02 AM

Thanks Becky - I should have said that was my intention all along!!
Anywho, here tis. Another year, another list, and a new favourite. Not surprising perhaps, but I still haven’t played it!
More surprising is that I remain the only Isabelle fan. I have no doubt had you played it, it would be in the Hall of Fame, so I think next year I will put it there anyway. People won’t be able to help but play it then devilchili yay .
What else? Sherlock Holmes seems to have become our favourite series sherlock , and perhaps 26 Nancy’s is enough whistle . Old and venerable games continue to do well, perhaps in part due to the GoGs of the world
As usual, 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. I no doubt missed a few. In the numeric list, I have tried to use actual titles, the games on my shelf having the final say (including those that are numbered).
In the alphabetical list, I have taken some liberties with names 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.
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.
I no doubt mucked something up/missed an alternate title/spelt something wrong/took too long. Apologies for the latter, but not the other things.
Awesome thanks to Chief who verified the count, and if the count is wrong, that’s my fault.
It’s always fun and many thanks to you all.

You are correct smulan! It's the second year you recommended it and the second year it was missed. oops It must be caught in some game vortex. I am sure it will be corrected.

EDIT: It actually had two votes this year. eek

Hi
Have made some edits - goodness knows what I did with Book of Unwritten Tales duh I will check the count again, and make any further adjustments I come across.
I generally stuff up somewhere creating the numerical list from the alphabetical list, and Chief always provides me with a confirmed count so its in the mechanics of creating the list.
Or else I was just sulking about Isabelle razz (couldn't find a sulky smiley - could there be such a thing?)

Solid selections. Nice to see all those 1 and 2 vote outliers that pepper the list - the kinds of game that are jewels to quite a few but never make 'consensus' lists and often remain in the shadows. I suspect these low counts games are the ones to pay special attention to... Nice work!

What an interesting thought, Tincup2.
I suspect you're right.
I really enjoyed Tale of a Hero which got my vote, if no one else's, for a great game for newbies.
It's easy and fun.
I'll have to go back and look at the games that got only one or two votes.
