Thanks amlamb! We're not trying to make it hard to post a list -- we're just trying to make it easier on those who also serve by counting. thumbsup

It was especially hard to choose just one of the serial games, especially Delaware St. John and Carol Reed. And I just realized I haven't played Hope Springs Eternal, since BFG doesn't have it yet. I need to go order it, I guess. laugh

Here's my yearly contribution to the adventure game list of 2009.
And thanks, flotsam, for making this last again smile

Overclocked
The Longest Journey (the first one)
Syberia (the first one)
Grim Fandango
Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened
Zork: Nemesis
Shivers 2: Harvest of Souls
Rhiannon - the curse of the four branches
Broken Sword (the first one)
Sinking Island
Post Mortem
Still Life
Keepsake
Runaway (the first one)
Escape from Monkey Island
Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy
Agon- The Lost Sword of Toledo
Gilbert Goodmate and the Mushroom of Phungoria
The Experiment

As you can probably see, this year, more modern games have made it to my list than last year, I think? This is because I've found that the state of adventure games really is getting better.




Adventure gaming is fun smile

I might well have also included the Phoenix Wright series for the DS, but felt you wanted PC. Thank you....

Hi all,
My apologies - real life intervened!
Its early days but Syberia already leads the way. Chasing hard are Syberia 2, Still Life and Black Mirror.
New games that have started well include Sherlock v Jack the Ripper and Rhiannon.
Nearly 200 games mentioned already and over 30 that weren't mentioned last year (including a couple I have never heard of).
Keep em coming smile


Quantity has a quality all of its own
