Me and Mrs. Fongo were hanging out at the Adventure Mansion this evening, and thought we'd put together our top 15 for the year.

After a series of complex negotiations, brutal eliminations, and a few tears (I felt much better after she got me some ice cream), we got it together.

After all that, the list looks pretty similar to last year:

Full Throttle
Riven
Syberia
Uru: Ages Beyond Myst
Morpheus
Myst IV Revelation
Amber: Journeys Beyond
Dark Fall
Grim Fandango
Zork Nemesis
Byzantine: The Betrayal
The Neverhood
Bad Mojo
Longest Journey
Tex Murphy: Overseer

Dark Fall, Syberia and Myst IV were the additions this year, with Myst (a little dated), Myst Exile (we preferred Revelation), and Riddle of the Sphinx walking the plank.

Hi ho,
We reach the half way point (more or less) and the No 1 recommendations from previous years all continue to do well, Myst being the least recommended of the previous "winners" so far.
Syberia narrowly heads the list from TLJ.
Special mention to Fongo for the avatar and mentioning the cockroach.

Lucky last syd, and good to see.
The votes are in and the ballot box is closed. Numbers were down on last year which just means I will cajole you lots next year. It remains fun and its always a pleasure.
What to say? Still Life made a strong appearance for a game still not played by many, and whilst the top 3 remained the same, there was movement below that. 50 or so games were mentioned that weren’t mentioned last year, some obviously new, but many old and obviously revered.
Isabelle wasn’t mentioned but you should play it if you can.
As always there is a numerical and an alphabetical list. I have taken some liberties with names to get series games together on the alphabetical list, and because of some personal prejudices; I refuse to call the Schizm games Mysterious Journey 1 and 2, and Beyond the Beyond of Atlantis 2 Too (or whatever its called) is too [blip] confusing.
Alternate names are listed where I could, as are full names wherever possible. Errors are all my own.
All the games must be worth playing – they were mentioned by somebody from among all the games they have played. Given they keep releasing new ones I fear I will never catch up, but I only have myself to blame if I play a dud.
Happy playing smile
