This list has been very helpful to me for buying games, not that I needed any help in my BAAGdom.

While I have loads of games I have not played that many.

I tried to put this in order :

Amerzone
Tex Murphy - Under a Killing Moon
The Ring
Sanitarium
Blackstone Chronicles
Broken Sword 1
Broken Sword 2
Neverhood
Sherlock Holmes - Rose Tattoo
Jack Orlando
Nightlong
Gene Machine
Bad Mojo
Normality
Black Dahlia (for atmosphere, story and acting, NOT the impossible puzzles)

And the reasons why I play so few adventure games:

Puzz 3d Bavarian castle
Think-x
Age of Empires
Pandora's Box

Hi there,
Well the update is a bit later than I promised but better late than never blush
52 people have contributed so far (we can do much better than that!!) and already 158 adventure games have received recommendations.
At this early stage, The Longest Journey may well run away with the top recommendation, with nearly 70% of persons putting it on their list.
The top 5 in order is:

The Longest Journey
GK2: The Beast Within
Myst 3: Exile
Myst/RealMyst
Riven

Close behind comes Grim Fandango and Zork Grand Inquisitor.
I haven't looked at the non-adventures yet.

flotsam

ps - Glenna, please feel free to e-mail re Isabelle.
And its called a Twisted List for no other reason than to distinguish it from all the other lists we contribute to smile
