"..., what would I recommend ?". I try to avoid the risk of "b.a.a.g.s."
Some games can be overwhelming, and consume too much of your "real life".
The "Carol Reed Mysteries", feel like a beautiful vacation.(holiday)

Black Circle - (C.R.M.#6)
Blue Madonna - (C.R.M.#7)
Bosch's Damnation - (C.R.M.#10)
Cold Case Summer - (C.R.M.#9)
Colour of Murder - (C.R.M.#5)
East Side Story - (C.R.M.#4)
Gomo
Hope Springs Eternal - (C.R.M.#2)

Adding a few to my previous five.

Culpa Innata
Loom
Tex Murphy: UAKM

One word about Loom. There are different editions of this game. The superior one is the japanese (english) FM Towns (PC) version. It's freely available if you bought Loom from Steam. (Probably elsewhere from as well, but none I know of) So why is it superior? This is why: it's the only version where Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker suite, the music of the game, in a wonderful blip blop orchestration :-), isn't cut up and amputized. The same goes for the beautiful dialogue portraits, secret of Monkey Island style.

I just realised that maybe I should have spelled out the Carol Reed games with the
actual name "Carol Reed"? Or do know that by heart anyway?

And I also realised that if Mikael keeps this up for Another ten years,
no other games will be on my list, lol.

Thanks mbday.

RebKean, you could keep that in mind for next year about the Carol Reed games. There are so many ways to put all the games in alphabetical order. Think about the Tex Murphy games or the Sherlook Holmes games.

And yes, I do know that by heart and I'm sure flotsam does also.

Thanks to all the 40+ members that posted their list. thanks

You're not talking to me right? Regarding Nancy I mean....
I had a couple of games in my list that I', not sure of.
As beeing adventure games, that is.
But I guess that will reveal itself somehow. =)

I see a lot of people have chosen Culpa Innata as one of their top 20 and it makes me so Sad and Angry that the the Company or any other company did not pick up and continue with C.I.2. Sob sob....
