All AGS games are beautiful, so I'd have to list all of them.

But anyways, I have some really fond memories of that IGOR game you mentioned.

And here are some of my most beloved unpopular games:

Pretty sure "Flight of the amazon queen" was actually a successful game in its day, what say you guys?

I knew about "I don;t have a mouth and I must scream" but never played it, the other two I really never heard of!!

PS> Maybe I missed the point of the thread? Maiac Mansion? day of the tentacle? these are very well known, and praised, games, no?

yes you have right about "Flight of the amazon queen", itīs well known, i maybe made a misstake there. so i re-edited the thread.

Yes Maniac Mansion and Day of the tentacle is wery known adventure game and is good games, but still well known.

"I have no mouth and i must scream" is known, but still not so well known. Itīs a pretty creepy game.

Cool. I have heard of all these AG's but never played any.
Shame because they all look intriguing.
'Sanatarium' - looks like a good game.
So does 'Igor' - whats it about? reminds me of INDY: FOA
'Delirium' - I nearly had a chance to play many years back.
So I will have to play these soon as they all look pretty good.

Any particular reason you might like a game called IGOR?

Maybe it's because of the platform and getting overshadowed by big names like Professor Layton on that, but I don't think Time Hollow got the general attention it deserved. Bit of a mind-twister to play but in a fun way.

Oups! ...forgotten...
Sorry, my mind got stuck on the "adventure goddies" part!
Anyway, I changed the links.
Will these do?

Somehow I like the way the game's title rings in my ear.

Well, it rings funny in my ear since I saw a Woody Allen movie (one of my favo(u)rites, btw).
Do you remember Dr. Bernardo's Igor?

probably my favourite obscure adventure game

http://www.mobygames.com/game/dos/dragonsphere

it's not perfect, but I loved the story, the twists, the characters and the world
