2003 the list more twisty - 06/21/03 06:23 AM

Hi there,
Well, due to popular demand here we go again this year.
For those new or asleep members, the aim of this thread is to compile a list of adventure game recommendations from the collected wisdom of us all. It is intended to be a resource to help people decide what game to play next. When I first came here, my best source of game recommendations was other boomers. This list is the repository of all that wisdom.
The key is to list the 15 games that you would recommend to someone to play in this day and age. They are not necessarily your favourite 15 games (you might love a particular game but believe that there are better recommendations for others) but they might be.
Following some debate, the scarcity or otherwise of the game is to be ignored. Many of us lend games that are hard to get, even the rare ones pop up here and there, and it would be too hard to determine what games to rule in and out. Also, judging from the previous lists, rare games are not much mentioned in any event.

There are some rules though, and I reserve the right to make up more as we go laugh


1. You can recommend a maximum of 15 games. You can choose to recommend less.
2. 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.
3. Myst and RealMyst will be counted as one game.
4. Adventure games only please.

As to what is the definition of an adventure game, well you all know one when you see one. Your own parameters are fine (we are all friends after all) and its meant to be fun not rocket science.
We keep the thread open for three weeks, and I will post intermittent updates. It is compulsory to get more posts than last year.
So here are my 15.

Riven
The Longest Journey
GK2: The Beast Within
Myst III: Exile
Morpheus
Dark Fall
Byzantine
Zork Nemesis
Faust
Blackstone Chronicles
Zork Grand Inquisitor
Dracula: The Last Sanctuary
The Dark Eye

ohh... I got FFX - I just LOVE it... many people says Square have lost their touch, but I don't believe so (although gameplay is different to the earlier FF, I still love the new style/changes)...

Since I have only been playing AGs a short time, I will only list my top 5 of the total of 22 games that I have finished.( out of these 22, three were action games.) Due to some serious BAAGing I now have 24 games waiting to be played. I might add that my choices of games come from lists like this and reviews-have picked up some of the best older games this way. Anyway, here are mine so far:
Tex Murphy-Under a killing Moon

Re: 2003 the list more twisty - 06/25/03 01:36 AM

Hi all,
My first periodic update sees the top 5 being:

The Longest Journey
Syberia
Dark Fall
GK2
Riven

The big movers are clearly the two newbies of last year.
The top 5 have been listed by nearly 50% of all participants.
139 games (allowing for my errors) have already been mentioned, 25 of them more than 10 times.

Finally, we already have more than half last years members participating, so are well on the way to having the most informed list yet.

Hi there,
Things have slowed down people - lets get with the program laugh thumbsup
Proving the original is not always the best (or most recommended anyway), GK2, Riven, Tex Murphy Pandora Directive, Nancy Drew Ghost Dogs and Zork Nemesis lead the way in those series.

But that's NOT what you expect from, say movies. Usually the sequels are not as good as the original even when the budget for the sequel is higher.

I wonder why games would be different. Maybe the technology changes so quickly for games that graphics in sequels are automatically a lot better? Or maybe the original games can no longer be easily played on current computers so not as many people CAN play them? Or maybe the industry is so new that the original games made mistakes that now, a few years later seem obvious?

I agree - movie sequels are often worse, with a few exceptions... But then the gaming industry has always responded well to player feedbacks, while I have never been aware of any movie makers out there that personally talk to the actual viewers and get his/her direct opinion... perhaps that's the reason why?

Myst
Osidian
Riven
Zork the Grand Inquisitor
Timelapse
Syberia
Darkfall
Amber
Shivers

These last four, I can't remember the earlier ones in the series well enough to be able to pick which one I liked the best. So, just add my one vote to whichever comes up with the most votes. Hope this isn't cheating):

Journeyman Project
Gabriel Knight
Tex Murphy

Thanks again, Flotsam, for all your hard work!

Dang! I can't believe I left Obsidian out. So, Flotsam, there is a change here. In Osbisian out Lighthouse.

Real Myst
Schizm
Syberia
GK3
GK2
Amerzone
Dracula Resurrection
Timelapse
Myst III: Exile
Dark Fall
Lighthouse
Grim Fandango
Beyond Atlantis (Atlantis II)
Riddle of the Sphinx

I really, really wanted to put Magnetic on my list, but since it is a game of puzzles, (and very ingenious ones), it seemed to be in a category by itself, and I just had to leave it off. <img border="0" alt="cry" title="" src="graemlins/cry.gif" />

Re: 2003 the list more twisty - 07/12/03 06:30 AM

I'm tempted to recommend a few games that I enjoyed playing very much the past 12 months, or am still playing: Madness of Roland (not even a game) - Bad Day on the Midway - Alice: An Interactive Museum - Eastern Mind: The Lost Soul of Tong Nou - Dogday - Psychic Detective - Cosmology of Kyoto - Blue Heat - Gag - Isabelle. But I'll be sensible. Here's my list:

- Riven
- Zork Grand Inquisitor
- Grim Fandango
- Black Dahlia
- Obsidian
- Neverhood
- Feeble Files
- Discworld 1
- Bad Mojo
- Overseer
- Last Express
- Dark Eye
- Dark Fall
- Dark Side of the Moon
- Broken Sword 1

Re: 2003 the list more twisty - 07/12/03 05:07 PM

Well I am hugely out of the loop here and getting ready tonight (oh joy! oh joy!) to load my forst game in just over two years....and am torn between loading "seven Journeys of the Soul" or "GK III: Blood of the Damned." Anyway - my favorites would have to be:

1. Amerzone
2. Riven
3. Morpheus
4. 7th Guest
5. 11th Hour
6. Comer
7. Longest Journey
8. Rama
9. Myst - tho it was my first game ever and I loved it to bits, when I got the new version I loved the graphics and hated the gameplay!
10. Fable, though I did not finish it due to various issues, I enjoyed it immensely and intend to go back to it.
11. Lighthouse.
12. Beyond Atlantis.

I am sure there is probably something else I could add to the mix, but it has been so long since I have done anything, I am at a loss!

Re: 2003 the list more twisty - 07/12/03 07:49 PM

Hi to all, this is a great idea. Can't resist putting in my two cents worth. I'm going to attempt to list them in order of interest, but it probably won't end up that way because I find myself changing them in my mind over and over and over...

1. Shivers
2. Myst III Exile
3. The Black Dahlia
4. Full Moon In San Francisco
5. Gabriel Knight 2 The Beast Within
6. Amber Journey's Beyond
7. The Omega Stone
8. Nancy Drew The Final Scene
9. Nancy Drew Ghost Dogs Of Moon Lake
10. Callahan's Crosstime Saloon
11. Clandestiny
12. Phantasmagoria 2 Puzzle Of Flesh
13. The Dame Was Loaded
14. Tex Murphy Under A Killing Moon
15. Phantasmagoria

As many have already said, there are many, many more that I have not listed (can you say Sanitarium) but the best part is reading all the other lists and seeing LOTS of games that I have yet to play. Wait till next year!! Sky.....

Re: 2003 the list more twisty - 07/13/03 03:34 AM

Well here tis - the final results.
165 games were mentioned abd nearly 100 boomers participated.
As usual, an alphabetical and numerical list will follow. I have taken some liberties with the names where series or sequels are involved, and have tried to use full and alternate titles where possible.
Any errors are of course my own.
The winner might surprise. As I said at the start I thought there would be a "new" first place. No prizes for guessing which game I thought it would be. But there wasn't much in it.
Great to see two releases from last year so prominent, yet at the same time those oldies but goodies keep hanging in there.
And as I say every year, every game on this list is a good one, as at least one boomer thought it was worth recommending out of all the games out there.
So without further ado, here are the results thumbsup

Re: 2003 the list more twisty - 07/13/03 06:09 AM

Thankyou Flotsam. A whopper of a job, really well done.

Looking at the no.1 and no.2, I wonder how much influence on those game positions can be attributed to the fact that TLJ has been around much longer and, so, everyone has had plenty of opportunity to play it. If that's the case then it should follow that next year TLJ will be ranked below Syberia (1). 'The Longest Journey' will still sneak ahead on my list, however.

Thanks Flotsam for taking the time to compile the list.

I also was suprised to see Riven so close to the top. And I really must start playing Grim Fandango so I can consider it next year!

I think that's part of the reason that the list includes so many old games. We see that others love them, so instead of playing a newer game we try and get the older ones to try. So then they go on our next year's list!

Re: 2003 the list more twisty - 08/24/03 04:54 PM

Flotsam, a truly AWESOME job. I'm sure all the "Boomers" appreciate seeing how their favorite games rate with the favorite games of all the other members. That is the major benefit of your hard work. However, there is a secondary benefit for those like me that have not played many of those games, and that is....I now have a better idea of games to be on the lookout for (not to mention getting to some that are on my shelf at this moment.) I want to thank you for giving me a "wish list" of games to search for. Can't wait till next year!!! Great job. Sky.

Hi Skylark,
I actually started the first of these threads for exactly that reason - namely, to get a list of games that I could play. Being new to the genre, I needed some help with all those games out there.
So I am glad it helps you in that way smile

Skylark your last paragraph speaks volumes. You are so correct about the Boomer Community. Its the only site I can relate to with out feeling threatened or getting cursed out with extremely bad language just because I did not agree with the majority. Thanks for bringing this great fact to surface.
