Thank you yet again Flotsam for your hard work on getting this list together. I'm a lot behind with many of the newer games released over the last two years & it is so difficult to condense it to 20 as there are many games I've excluded that are on a par with the ones I have! But here goes:

Agon: The Mysterious Codex
Art of Murder: 3 Cards of Destiny
Black Circle (A Carol Reed Mystery)
Blackwell Convergence
Broken Sword 1
Culpa Innata
Diamonds in the Rough
Dracula 3
Gabriel Knight 1: Sins of the Fathers
Last Half of Darkness: Tomb of Zojir
Moment of Silence
Nostradamus
Overclocked
Secret Files 2 Puritas Cordis
Secret Files of Da Vinci: The Forbidden Manuscript
Shadow of Memories
Sherlock Holmes versus Jack the Ripper
So Blonde
Tears of Betrayal
Yoomurjak's Ring

Another surprise for me as I look over the lists is that the Discworld and Simon the Sorcerer games don't seem to get much attention. They seem pretty similar to the Monkey Island games to me which always seem to get quite a few mentions.


It's nice to be important but it is much more important to be nice.
