Default A Road to Unknown quiz

This quiz features parts of the roads, streets and paths from various adventure games and it is your job to figure out what are those games.

While guessing you can also listen to some songs that I think fit perfectly with the quiz Dark song and a little more cheerful song

Rules:
First round: You may first guess only one screen (with the exception for the quizmasters Trunkyo, Fien and Diego who can make 2 guesses in the first round)
Second round: You may make your 2nd guess (3rd guess for the quizmasters) only after my confirmation post
Third round: You can make your 3rd guess (4th for quizmasters) after I make another response confirming or denying your guesses.

So bassically you can make another guess only after I confirm the previous one, you got it?

And also please make your guesses in spoiler tags

Also who ever misses the first guessing round will be able to compensate it with 2 guesses in the 2nd round. Attention this only applies for the first round!!!

When I make a post saying that all the remaining pics are up for grabs, you will be able to guess as much as you want

Attention!!! You may not edit the post that has a guess in it. Panthera did it once, even though she shouldn't have, I still accepted her guess though. Any off topic posts can be edited though.

I wish you happy quizing!

P.S. Who ever isn't sure about the rules please ask away in the thread first, instead of guessing whithout being certain how to guess!

Okay, I'm game and I'll start with the 17 of course:

The Whispered World, Corona courtyard, Spot's seesaw which brings him up to the roof.


I actually know another one, but I'm not a quizmaster

Spoiler:
Runaway: A Twist of Fate



And whad'ya know, i'm a quizmaster now, #11 looks suspiciously like

Spoiler:
Baker Street but i'm not quite sure which game in the series precisely... how about Awakened?



It's a nice collection of pictures (35 ) and i'm curious to find out where some of them come from, like #23 and #24 which i can't place for now...

I'm going to go with one of the very easy ones to recognize, but hard to pinpoint..

4.
Spoiler:
is Sam and Max, season 1. I think it is episode 3, the mole, the Mob and the meatball, but it could also be ep. 2. Situation: Comedy. It's a bit difficult deciphering if there's one or two previous jobs on the sign.
Actually, it's Culture Shock, ep. 1. If I'm allowed to edit my guess. Started it up to check.

Right series, right season, wrong game
Edit: Even though you should not have edited your post guess, I'm gonna accept it anyway, because you already posted the name of the game, but from now on please no more edits!!! Yes 4. is Sam & Max Ep 1 Culture Shock

You may now make another guess

And know my personal responses:

Someone finally pushed the fast forward button, so we could guess the next round!

"So bassically you can make another guess only after I confirm the previous one, you got it?"

After a few minutes to be more exact!

I'm gonna say # 2,

Journey to the center of the earth, nice graphics, cutscenes, but a very game...

Hm, ok, I'll close the third round around 12 or 1 p.m. tomorrow, so you'll have enough time to make the third guess , that is if they don't guess everything by that time
