Not only did I fall off the diet wagon, I dragged it into the woods, set it on fire, and used the insurance money to buy cupcakes.

Myst 3 Exile
RealMyst
Grim Fandango
Riddle of the Sphinx
The Dig
Journeyman Project 1

I want to add Anachronox and Zanzarah because they have such strong adventure components, but I guess they'll just have to wait for the Dark Side list.

24 hours down and last years most recommended game - Syberia - is already leading the pack. Hot out of the blocks as well are Longest Journey, Myst and Riven. 6 games are into double figures, and nearly 30 games have been listed which weren't mentioned last year, some new, some not so new smile


Quantity has a quality all of its own

15 just doesn't cut it these days.

No particular order.

1. Dark Fall: the Journal
2. Syberia I
3. Syberia II
4. Dark Side of the Moon
5. Gabriel Knight I
6. Gabriel Knight II
7. Broken Sword I
8. Broken Sword II
9. Tex Murphy: Under a Killing Moon
10. Tex Murphy: the Pandora Directive
11. Tex Murphy: Overseer
12. Agon I
13. Agon II
14. Agon III
15. Keepsake

There are lots more I'd like to put in. Every year, more good adventure games appear. I think you need to bump the number up a little, otherwise good games have to be culled.

Cheers, barbarosso

never was good with what genre games belong in.
in the order i remember them in, not nessisarily in order of favorites.

1-The Crystal Key
2-The Mystery of the Nautilus
3-CYDONIA Mars: The First Manned Mission/Lightbringer (I got my copy before it was renamed)
4-Arthor's Knights II: The Secret of Merlin

though think we need just overall best games of any genre.

PDL, I think only the last 4 count as adventure games... You could put the others on the "dark side" list....

Yes, MaG. Tomb Raider.

There's a lot of adventure in it - exploration and puzzle solving. So what if some of the puzzls involve the application of ammunition wink
