I'm not going to waste too much time with an introduction here, because I know you're all itching for the countdown to begin! This article is meant to serve as a primer for those who are overwhelmed with the choices available to IF rookies. I will count down the top five games that have been given birth in the IF community since 1995, and also list five honorable mentions. Start with these ten games and you'll be well on your way to discovering the wonder of interactive fiction!
Each game includes a link to the game's page at Baf's Guide to the IF Archive. There you can find links to all pertinent information, as well as links to the necessary tools needed to play the games.
I really, sincerely hope you enjoy reading and playing as much as I have enjoyed writing. I would love to hear any feedback you have on this article; you can e-mail me at [email protected].
Now, without further ado, let's begin the count!Continued on the next page...
