To me TLJ, Syberia, Still Life, Farenheit lead the pack. Episodes don't get even close to the sense of immersion and story completion in these games.
Don't know about you, but they sort of are the savior of the adventure genre. Its bringing back the genre to the mainstream. If that isn't being a savior, then I don't know what is.
