Lets get it on evil
There are rules, and they follow. I have been guided by the earlier posts when this list was being discussed. I may clarify as we go along.

1. You can recommend a maximum of 10 games, but you can recommend less.
2. You can't list a series, unless you use single votes for each game.
3. Expansion packs will be considered seperate games, on the basis that the original might be ordinary but an expansion pack superb.
4. Any game that is not pure adventure can be listed, irrespective of genre.
5. You don't have to indicate the type or genre, and you are not limited to any specific number of games in any genre. Go ahead and list 10 rpg's if you choose.

We will keep the thread open for about 2 weeks. At the end of it all I will compile an alphabetical list and a numerical list, and with the help of Zanthia we will also categorise the games into genres.
So without further ado, here is my humble contribution.

Outcast
System Shock 2
Realms of the Haunting
Deus Ex
Ceasar 3
Alpha Centauri
Half Life
Twinsuns Odyssey

Flotsam you are a darling for doing this. Only PC games have been mentioned so far. Are we able to include console games too or should they have a separate list?

I am still considering my list but without console games it will be rather short.

I think we should try and stick to pc games Jude, particularly as that is the way people have started.

Hi Syd smile

I hope not !! 'Cause I edited mine !!

[I can't see how it would matter before the "end" date ??]

And I didn't include QFG myself - in case it wasn't countable - but then found I could make 10 anyway !! Which I found amazing wave

Neighbours from Hell
Baldur's Gate 2
Zanzarah
Ghostmaster
Anachronox
Divine Divinity

I had to leave off ones I really liked--the Quest for Glory series and Stonekeep, for example, but nothing for it but to stick to the rules! Also belonging to the Honorable Mention category are Anvil of Dawn, Ultima Underworld 1, and Ultima Underworld 2. The Ultima Underworlds would be in my top ten were it not for what would now be the too-outdated graphics for a lot of players.
