OK, I thought this list was just for games of 2006, but since it's for "all time" I have my 15, listed in alphabetical order. I did not include the Uru Series since it's a role playing game:

Amerzone
Black Dahlia
Black Mirror
Byzantine - Betrayal
Dark Fall - The Journal
Myst-Riven-Exile-Revelation
Paradise
Qin
Reah
Riddle of the Sphinx
Schizm I
Sentinel
Still Life
Syperia I & II
Timelapse

From Flotsam's original post:

Quote:
You might not recommend one of your personal favourites because your passion for the game is too much a result of your own idiosyncracies at the time you played it, or the result of a summer romance or too much wine.

Hi ho,
Things are certainly motoring along.
There are already about 175 games listed. Both Syberias and TLJ are the most recommended so far.
Recent release games which are polling well on limited release time include Barrow Hill and Dreamfall.
Some oldies back onto the list include Celtica, Comer, Drowned God and Qin.
And Becky, if you manage it you can send me the details privately lol


Quantity has a quality all of its own

G'day All,

Flotsam very kindly allowed me 2 more votes since Agon series is considered 1 game. I am a little chary of voting for the older games as The List is intended as a guide to recommended games. Some of the older games are getting extremely hard to get these days.

So I guess my vote is for Myst and Riven.

Cheers, barbarosso

Ugh. Celtica, Comer, and Qin. People, it's not obligatory to pad out your list to 15 games. flotsam will let you know when he's compiling the 'worst of' list rotfl
