I've played many great adventure games but my heart still choses the one that made me know, at 11 years old, the whole genre:
Monkey Island

For first person puzzlers, Riven, or Obsidian. For comic adventures, Day of the Tentacle.

I guess if I had to limit it to one, Grim Fandango is probably the all time favorite for me. It is just funny, the charactors are great to interact with because you pick their answers, and the story line is great, it had me laughing out loud.

But a very close second, would be about 50 or more games all tied for second place! lol

AquariaJade, The Last Express is my daughter's favorite. She is in college and plays some adventure games like Nancy Drew, but she will play The Last Express over and over. Thanks for reminding me of this great game! wave

For me, Gabriel Knight 2 for story and tremendous music were my favorite followed by GK 1 and 2. I also liked the Last Express and thought the story sf Shadow of Destiny very interesting. There are so many but because of the music, scenery, acting, story and music, GK was so memorable to me. Mel22odie

Quest for Glory series
King's Quest series
Both Conquests (Camelot was my first ever graphics AG)
Gabriel Knight 1 & 2 (couldn't get into 3 because of the interface - why have some games dropped mouse movement and gone back to frustrating keyboard moves?)
Dagger of Amon Ra
Myst 1, 2 & 3 (4 & 5 on my desk waiting)

OK you now all see where my loyalties lie lol but IMO nobody has yet come anywhere near Sierra at their peak, but other favourites include Amerzone, Riddle of the Sphinx, Atlantis 3, Riddle of Master Lu ( yeah, not all that new either)

And let's not forget the progenitor of them all - the original Colossal Caves which was very exciting at the time, played on a teletype you could use the print out to help draw the maps, and plan future play.

Top of the list is probably QFG4, closely followed by Colossal Caves for letting me discover the sheer excitement of AGs, and Camelot for revealing what an AG could look like. I said then, and still say someone should do CC as a graphics based game, ideally in the "point & click" rendition that that Sierra was using at the stage of QFG3 onwards.

For me, it's Gabriel Knight 3 - Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned, closely followed by GK2 - The Beast Within and Broken Sword - Shadow of the Templars. I also loved The Longest Journey - what a beautiful game! After about 30 hours of playing, I was pretty upset when it ended *g*

I reckon for me the best adventure game would have to be Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis since I played it 6 times, but then I'm a great big Indy fan.
Besides Indy my favorite games are really my favorite characters, like King Graham, Rosella, Roger Wilco, Gabe Knight, George Stobbart, Kate Walker/Oscar, and of course, Guybrush Threepwood! These live on forever!















To love is to be happy with!

Interesting how many peeps on this thread are going back to the 80s and early 90s for their favourive games. Probably says something about our average age !!!!

"Interesting how many peeps on this thread are going back to the 80s and early 90s for their favourive games. Probably says something about our average age !!!!"

Or maybe pinpointing an era when exceptionally good games were made cool

Cheers.
