Sometimes lost is where you need to be. Just because you don't know your direction doesn't mean you don't have one.

It's hard to pick just 15. And hard to choose which won't be included, like the Journeyman Project games, Toonstruck, Timelapse, Amerzone, Discworld, Ripper, Tex Murphy, etc. are also so good. (I'm not sure how well Tex Murphy, Ripper, and Toonstruck work on XP though, or this list might look a little different).

I'm assuming all of these will work on a modern XP computer, either with an emulator or au naturel.
In alphabetical order -

Beyond Atlantis (aka Atlantis II)
Day of the Tentacle
Gabriel Knight 1: Sins of the Fathers
Gabriel Knight 2: The Beast Within
Gabriel Knight 3: Blood of the Sacred...
Grim Fandango
The Longest Journey
Morpheus
Myst (or Myst Masterpiece or RealMyst)
Myst III: Exile
Obsidian
Sanitarium
Secret of Monkey Island
Shivers
Siberia 1

You can tell I like both puzzle types and story types.

Oh boy! It is TOUGH to cut this to just 15

Okay, cutting to games that are probably still available and run on modern computers... wave

Would Blood Rayne be an adventure game or RPG?

It had action and was an adventure you went everywhere. smile

In no particular order...here is my list for this latest "Twisty." LOL

1. Sanitarium
2. Black Mirror
3. Runaway
4. Myst III: Exile
5. The Longest Journey
6. Seven Games of the Soul (a.k.a. Faust)
7. Grim Fandango
8. Dark Fall
9. Broken Sword I
10. Broken Sword II
11. Syberia
12. Amerzone
13. Gabriel Knight III: Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned
14. Phantasmagoria I
15. Phantasmagoria II

Interesting to me, is the fact that I dropped off two of the classics that I chose last year in favor of Black Mirror and Runaway, which I believe were the "cream of the crop" from last year's "harvest." It's always good to see some newer games finding their way into the list!!


PLAYING ON PC: World of Warcraft...nothing else...there is no need for ANY other game when you have THIS one to play!! LOL
