Although I'll always have fond memories of the old games I cut my teeth on, I so much admire the way technology has moved on and therefore will always prefer good, absorbing, modern games. (Plus I don't have as many teeth left now as I did then laugh ).

Things are humming along nicely.
Having a look at series, all 3 Gabriel Knight games have received mentions, and ditto the Agatha Christie games. All 4 Broken Sword games have been mentioned, as have all 4 Monkey Isalnd games and all 5 Carol Reed games. 5 KIngs Quest games and all of the 6 non-live incarnations of Myst are on the list, and 9 of the Nancy Drew games have received recommendations.
Conversely, non of the Leisure Suit Larry games have yet rated, nor have any of the Quest for Glory games (5 got mentioned last year, although they probably best belong on the Darkside). No Egypt games yet either.

I am playing Culpa Innata and enjoying it so much. It would definitely bump something off my list, but I guess it will have to wait until next year.
