Here is my list:

Kings Quest: Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow
Shivers (the first one)
Gabriel Knight: The Beast Within
Myst
Riven
Timelapse
The 7th Guest
The Longest Journey
Dracula Resurrection
Black Dahlia (although I'm still not done, since it has given me tons of problems)

There are several games that I just couldn't add that I see that others liked. So my list is really just my all time favorites.

These are all games I recommend. I prefer games that don't require you to use a walkthru. If the game is too hard I lose interest. Here goes:Legend of Kyrandia#1, Gabriel Knight#2,The Longest Journey, Kings Quest Chapter#7,DOTT, Simon the Sorcerer and Simon the Sorcerer#2,Circle of Blood,Monkey Island#1,2&3,Discworld and Discworld#2,Grim Fandango,and Sanitarium.

Here they are:

Nightlong
Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atalantis
Bureau 13
Alone in the Dark 2
Callahan's
Neverhood
Kyrandia 1
Noctropolis
Woodruff & the Schnibble
Innocent Until Caught
Space Quest 6
Beneath a Steel Sky
The Dig
Sam & Max
Ween: The Prophecy

I just noticed that all of mine are 3rd person, 2D animated games (or was The Prophecy 1st person?). A good story with interesting characters and logic based puzzles make these games among the best (IMHO). We still haven't played Discworld, Monkey Island, Tex Murphy, etc. etc. - maybe next time they'll be on my list.
