Well since I've played a few new games since last year and now grouping a series isn't allowed my list is a little bit different than the last one.

I am surprised with all the new games I did play this last year that some of them didn't make it to my list, as they seemed to be faves of quite a few other boomers here.

Here goes:
Thief Gold
Black Dahlia
Myst Exile
Real Myst
Beyond Atlantis
Goblins 3(the third one)
Ripper
Obsidian
Ring
Shivers 2(the second one)
Drakan
Zork 1(the first one)
Zork TGI
Dracula the Ressurection
Blade Runner

I'm not as big a gamer as most people here. I have many unfinished games which I can't recommend, because I haven't finished, but I have a few that are favorites and some others I've enjoyed.

Myst/realMyst (definitely realMyst if your machine meets the specs)
Riven
Myst III: Exile

I also liked:
Journeyman 3: Legacy of Time
Riddle of the Sphinx
Aztec: The Sacred Amulet
Timelapse

Can't think of any more...

I think I am the only person in the entire universe who liked THE QUIVERING enough to include it in their best of. What a shame.

Hi there,
The final lists appear below. The linking one will come later.
There is a numerical list, and an alphabetical list. An asterix in the alphabetical list indicates it is available for Mac - thanks to MacDee for that info.
I tried to use complete names where I could, and have listed alternative titles where relevant. I took a few liberties with the names in the alphabetical list in order to get sequels and series together (eg Myst 2). In the numerical list however the games are as I understand their correct title to be.
I have listed every game recommended, although I suspect a few would not be classed as adventure. The only games I did not list were recommendations outside the rules.
All errors are my own, but are hopefully extremely minimal.
Nearly 100 members posted recommendations, and just over 170 games were recommended. The top game received 51 recommendations, which meant 1 in every 2 persons had it in their 15 recommended games.
The top game was a bit of a surprise. I knew it would do well, but I would not have picked it at the start as ending up on top.
Finally, as I said last year, every game here is one which at least one person thought was among the 15 they would recommend out of all the games they have played. Allowing for tastes, that means there are no duds, and it will be a long time before I run out of good games to play

ps - apologies for the formatting. That too is my fault. I just couldn't master the UBB codes

Well done!!
Thank you so much Flotsam! It must have taken a long time to to make this very good compilation.
As I have high opinion of my fellow-gamers' taste (at least in adventure games) I will consult this very often, before I buy or play a game.
Love, Christina
