Hi all
And we are off again. rah
In case you have forgotten or are new, our annual list provides the answer to the question "If I want to play an adventure game, what should I play?".
I started it years ago for the self-serving purpose of knowing the answer to that very question. It has been a valuable resource, and not just for me, as well as a bit of annual fun.
Since we began, we have increased the number of recommendations you can make, given the proliferation of indie and downloadable games, and we introduced the Hall of Fame, to identify those games that always went well so they didn't need mentioning. It also made room for newbies.
Before I get to rules, let me confirm that I promised I wouldn't mention Isabelle, so I wont. joy
So what are the rules?

1. Games in our Hall of Fame are ineligible, for the reason identified above (ie we know they are worth playing else why would they be in the Hall of Fame). Votes for those games won't be counted. Those games are:

Amerzone
Black Mirror
Broken Sword 1 (Circle of Blood, Shadow of the Templars)
Dark Fall: The Journal
Dreamfall
Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers
Gabriel Knight: The Beast Within
Grim Fandango
Longest Journey
Lost Crown
Lost Horizon
Myst
Riven
Sanitarium
Still Life
Syberia
Syberia 2
Timelapse
Zork Nemesis
Zork Grand Inquisitor

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 separate 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. Ditto any other spruced up releases (eg RHEM 4)
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)

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 (endeavour to) post updates and insights as we go. Please avoid editing your lists after posting because Chief and I count as we go, and may miss a change.
have fun thumbsup

Callahan’s Crosstime Saloon

not count as adventure games? No one has listed them. And it seems like someone would have if they counted. Definitely two of the best recent games.

Gone Home
Firewatch
Myst III: Exile
Obduction
Primordia
Quern: Undying Thoughts
Return to Mysterious Island
Runaway 1: A Road Adenture
Schizm: Mysterious Journey

Lady K,

I noticed you have Timelapse on your list.
Timelapse is a Hall of Fame game, so you might want to choose something else.

I did the same thing last year -- nominated a game that was already in the Hall of Fame list.

There are a couple of games I can't remember the names of - darn it. One was where you have to get to the top of a tower. The other was where you are in a house and you have to get out of each room via a door with symbols on it. If you know what these are please add them to the list. Otherwise it is:-

Atlantis 2
Barrow Hill
Dark Fall - Lights Out
Echo - Secrets of the Lost Cavern
Green Moon
Keepsake
Murder in the Abbey
Nancy Drew - Curse of Blackmoor Manor
Rhiannon - Curse of the Four Branches
Safecracker

8dognight, Broken Sword is one of the games in the Hall of Fame, so you can go ahead and remove it from your list (and add another title instead if you would like). wave

Oops! I missed that completely. Thanks, Jenny! I will put Rhem 3 in its place.

Agreed praise
I would post my recommendations but am stuck deciding which game to put in my list in place of the game that shall not be mentioned. It must be suitably worthy to assume the mantle, and none so far can compare razz

One week down.
So far we have a whole bunch of Tex's and Carol's, a couple of Kathy's and Larry's, an Erica and a Nancy here and there, and a few cat ladys to boot catrub
Some venerable oldies, and quite a few newies, and already there are some I haven't heard of.
Keep them coming thumbsup

The Minims (No one ever talks about this game, but I found it to be delightful and so so charming)

Contradiction: Spot the Liar (John Guilor as Ryan Rand!)

The Infectious Madness of Dr. Dekker (FMV game that came out last month. SO good.)

mbday630, Broken Sword 1, Grim Fandango and Lost Horizon can't be voted for as they all are a Hall of Fame games.

Refer to the presentation text of the 2017 The List by flotsam to see the Hall of Fame games.

If you decide to add games, please make a separate post so that flotsam and I can add your new choice.

Thanks.

And so it ends, and with a new number 1. bravo
As always, two lists follow, one numerical, one alphabetical. The numerical list starts with the Hall of Fame games, and they are included in the alphabetical list marked **.
As with last year, the numerical list shows placings rather than votes. You can see the votes in the alphabetical list.
I have tried in the past to use full as well as alternate titles where I have known them, but I am getting old and there are so many games. I no doubt missed a few. I have also taken some liberties with names to get series together where possible in the alphabetical list, and numbered series games to assist with the order in which they were developed. Be warned - they may not be sequels, just additional games in a series. And when you get prequels, the whole numbering thing falls apart crazy
Episodics are marked as well, and they can be confusing too (is Journey Down episodes or sequels??).
A couple of rather darkish games crept in, and some that I am not sure are games at all, but we are all friends.
Awesome thanks to Chief who helps with the count and apologies up front for any mistakes, which are all mine.

Thank you flotsam & Chief for your hard work on putting these lists together!
I enjoyed reading the top choices of others & my own list of 'must plays' grows forever longer!
There's just one thing if you don't mind me mentioning - I was curious to see who else had voted for Echoes of the Past which received 2 votes but I could only find the 1 vote for Echo - Secrets of the Lost Cavern which is a much older & completely different game. Echoes of the Past is a relatively recent AGS Freeware game actually set, unlike Secrets of the Lost Cavern, in the present day. lol

chrissie, it should state 1 Echoes of the Past and 1 Echo-Secrets of the Lost Cavern. You are correct. Unfortunately (and fortunately), when using Excel and you start to type, it finishes your sentence with something previous to auto complete. I'm sure that's what happened.

Thanks very much for another great year of the list, flotsam and Chief! praise

I was happy to see many of my favorites did so well, Dreamfall Chapters in particular. woot It's especially interesting to see what people come up with without being able to vote for the Hall of Fame games. yes
