Still Life for me too (the first one anyway). I was expecting a regular old mediocre murder mystery, but it was more than that.

Amerzone was another one. I was expecting it to be about a trip to some tropical place and sort of a grind. I wasn't expecting the place to come to life the way it did.

Grim Fandango -- looked like a sort of cartoon from the screenshots, but the characters ended up being more complex and "real" than in many games that strive to be "realistic."

And Myst -- not what I was expecting at all. But once I got over my initial confusion I really got into it.

I guess you might add Obsidian. I was expecting it to be pretty good, but I wasn't expecting it to be as inventive as it turned out to be.
