1.The Arrival 2.Beyond Time 3.Byzantine The Betrayal 4.Callahan's Crosstime Saloon 5.The Crystal Skull 6.Dark Fall The Journal 7.Dark Side Of The Moon 8.Gast The Ghost 9.Grim Fandango 10.The Longest Journey 11.Neverhood 12.Riddle Of The Sphinx 13.Space Bar (haven't finished it yet, need to replay it on WIN95) 14.Shivers I 15.Temujin
Thanks for doing this list again this year.
Love, Betty Lou
