I think 3 is
Spoiler:
Al Emmo and the Lost Dutchman's Mine.


I have a few more guesses, but am going to save them for later (or for other "competitors").

Nice idea, Fien!

I think number 9 is:
Spoiler:
The Whispered World

It certainly looks like the art, although I've yet to actually get to that point in the game if my answer is correct.

Thanks for the fun, Fien.

Wow, nine out of ten answers correct! I thought number 3 might be difficult because it's taken from the intro. Same goes for number 8, even more so, you get to see it for less than a second. But I was actually counting on Fantasy for that one.

Number one is still open. Sorry, idris. It's without doubt the hardest of the lot, very obscure nowadays. Japanese game. Anyone?

EDIT: Oops! Number 8 is still open as well, cause Fantasy got it wrong. My mistake.

Spoiler:
Dark Fall: The Journal.
I knew what I was talking about, but I guess my fingers didn't.

Right! I did wonder what was keeping you, Mr. Zobraks.

So the complete list is:

1. Gadget: Invention, Travel and Adventure
2. Agatha Christie: Murder on the Orient Express
3. Al Emmo
4. Syberia 2
5. The Gene Machine
6. The Lost Crown
7. Sam&Max Season 1
8. Dark Fall 1
9. The Whispered World
10. The Last Express

Number 1 is...
Spoiler ahead!


... Gadget.
I couldn't put the title within spoiler tags since it's a link also. This forum needs a proper spoiler tags - ones that can conceal everyrthing (pictures, links, and so on).

You're gonna have to wait a while

I didn't mean to imply that yours wasn't good, it was an awesome idea with great execution. It just brought some nostalgia...
