Zork Nemesis, for the sheer beauty of it, when I was brand-new to gaming. Had just finished Myst, and didn't find anything that held up visually to 'til then. Was probably only my 4th or 5th game, and it had just come out, so there was lots of fun interaction on the boards. Sure knocked my socks off.
Loved the "real" people in it (how many, I think about 8 characters, between the wicked sorcerors or whatever they were, and the entombed "good guys"- compared to Myst's 3 people).

I still love Myst/realMyst best of all.
(and I consider Riven part2 of the story)

(Zork:Nemesis made a strong impression on me too when I played it. Very involving!)

Myst III: Exile

The reasons are almost too many to mention. Great story, very immersive, beautiful worlds, fully 360 degree movement, incredible artwork, just all-around amazing. Challenging puzzles that made me actually think and made me feel proud when I solved them. I just don't think there has ever been a better game, although there are other games that I loved ALMOST as much....it will always be my number one.


PLAYING ON PC: World of Warcraft...nothing else...there is no need for ANY other game when you have THIS one to play!! LOL

TLJ, and yes it has flaws, but it just draws you into the story, and has you rooting for April Ryan. Definitely my numero uno!


Come visit us at Mystery Manor

My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;
But, ah, my foes, and, oh, my friends -
it gives a lovely light.

GF is a great collection of American pop culture retro-isms. laugh That Blue Casket Café features open mic nite for poetry readings with bongos & finger-snapping. It just reeks of '60s beatniks at Greenwich Village(not that im from that era! but 'lest thats how hip i imagined it to be!). There's sumthing benevolent about Manny as well; being both a big biznessman and being part of Salvador's Revolutionaries. Heeeheee Could it be possible- A biznessman with a soul??? (In Casablanca, Rick, played by Bogart, runs his own café as well as "running guns" for the revolutionaries which he insists on not taking credit by claiming he was merely doing it for the money) Glottis himself is into the whole HotRod sub-culture; the clothes, living&breathing custom cars, always talking about "upgrades", never satisfied....



Looks like TLJ & Zork:Nemesis are tied at 4votes! Just got my Zork:NM from the mailman yesterday: and im... done! its alrite. wink

Well I have to say ......Amber Journeys Beyond!
It was my first game I ever played ad I really enjoyed it.! I have a whole list of others that I liked but I think because it was my first adventure game I put it #1 on my list.!

Timmy says he likes Gabriel Knight 1 Sins of the Father the best.! ALthough he did not like when he had to leave the room between days because of the video clips.!!

I thought the dreams Gabriel Had were a little too much for a 6 year old.!
