No disrespect to these yearly lists or for the games of the past but I am tired of listing the same old top ten games that I have liked so much in the past. Time for me to move on. They are all good games but most are outdated technology wise so I am now only going back to games released from Jan 2013 to date. I have played more but this list only includes the games that I have enjoyed very much in that time frame. Shame (for me) there are so few.

Capri Connection
Carol Reed Cold Case Summer
Carol Reed: Bosch's Damnation
Decay: The Mare
Morningstar: Descent to Deadrock
Roonsehv: Neterra
Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments
Stanley Parable
Tex Murphy: Tesla Effect
Vanishing of Ethan Carter

A lot of the games on my list are oldies or even ancients laugh but the only one on it that has not yet been tweaked (as far as I know) to play on modern machines is "Black Dahlia".

So, as these older games are some of the best ever made and are now available for a new generation of players to experience, I feel they are definitely worth listing yes

My list is older games too but I listed them because I still think they are the best games out there and are what I would suggest to people just getting into gaming. I wish I has more recent game to recommend.

Black Dahila was one of those games that stayed with me long after I played it because the plot was so good.

A while back, someone in Glitches mentioned a Black Dahlia patch such that the game will run on Vista/Windows 7. I haven't tried it.

Thanks, Chief - I hope more members will post their favorites. smile

I was going to make it easy this year by simply placing the 10 Carol Reed games on top of my list. But since I expect all of them to be moved to the Hall of Fame any year now, that would be quite pointless. smile

Just as MaG above me, my list is the same as last year, except for one title:

Amber: Journeys Beyond
Blade Runner
The Blackstone Chronicles
The Colonel's Bequest
The Dame Was Loaded
The Dark Eye
Kings Quest IV: The Perils of Rosella
Kings Quest V
Kings Quest VII: The Mask of Eternity
Leisure Suit Larry I: In the Land of the Lounge Lizards
Leisure Suit Larry III: Passionate Patti
Monkey Island 3: The Curse of Monkey Island
Morpheus
Police Quest I: In Pursuit of the Death Angel
Police Quest IV: Open Season
Quest for Glory V
Tex Murphy: The Pandora Directive
Tex Murphy: The Overseer
Tex Murphy: Under A Killing Moon
Tex Murphy: The Tesla Effect

The Tomb Raider games should go in the Darkside list.
Darkside and Casual have their own lists, which are usually tallied after the Adventure game list is complete.
