I gave a token amount to Double Fine (it didn't seem like they needed my help!) and have pledged more substantially to Jane Jensen. I'm saving the rest of my funds for Tex Murphy, though - I find the...

Interesting. I'm kind of nostalgic for The 7th Guest despite it not being the best of the nineties adventure games I played - it was genuinely innovative, even if the execution left something to be...

I just completed Act II last night, and am pleased to report that I liked the gameplay a lot more in this act. The people who told me there were puzzles ahead were correct! Now I only wish the...

After many crashes I reached the end of Act I. (Fortunately the crashes were predictable - they occurred every time I traveled to a new location, so saving before they occurred was easy.)

So far,...

Seconding Grey Matter, which I loved.

The other two games I'd certainly put on the list are The Lost Crown and Scratches. Both great, scary games.

In case anyone is feeling bad about their tally ... I have only finished twenty-five of the games on the list!

The player character in The 7th Guest is male, something that doesn't become apparent until late in the game. (I would say how you find this out, but that would be spoilery. Not that it has much of a...

A great list, and since I've only played a quarter of the games on it I have some serious catching up to do.

I hope so! It's my #1 and all-time favourite.

I'd have put Fate of Atlantis higher, and while I enjoyed Zork: Grand Inquisitor I also found it really short. I ultimately prefer Nemesis.

Delighted to see Full Throttle so high on the list, as I wasn't sure it would make it at all. Sure, it's short and the bike track sequence is pretty awful, but it's wonderfully written and acted, and...

Mean Streets: Worth Playing?

So, back in the nineties Under A Killing Moon and Overseer were two of my favourite games. I never got to play The Pandora Directive, widely regarded as the best of the Tex Murphy series, but that's...

I guess that means that The Lost Crown and Scratches didn't make it :frown:. A pity, as I think they're both fantastic, The Lost Crown especially.

Enjoying the list so far. Personally, I'd have placed Indigo Prophecy higher and Samorost 2 lower. True, Indigo Prophecy falls apart in the last third (and has a frustrating control system to boot)...

I actually just finished playing Gray Matter yesterday and I'd love to see a sequel. I've played better adventure games, but none that was quite so on my wavelength.

Definitely The Last Crown and Asylum. Although I'm a little worried the first-person perspective of Asylum may set off my motion sickness. (I had to play Scratches in slideshow mode.)

I've also finished. Didn't have nearly as much trouble with the prison drones as I recall having the first time I played the game - maybe our computer was less responsive thirteen years ago.
