4. -

I still haven’t played Machinarium but nothing is better than Discworld Noir. Grim Fandango is awesome but I think GK still wins slightly. BS and GR aren’t perfect games, giving the vote to Gemini Rue with a slight margin. It’s been ages since I played The Dig but I think it was probably awesome. Syberia was really good too though, but can’t really decide between these two.

Machinarium
GK3 (Just to counter balance the votes but in the endgame it won’t work i know Tongue)
Gemini Rue (same reason)
Syberia

Machinarium and Syberia are legit though Tongue, but they will lose in next match ,
eventually GF would rise.

M1: Machinarium - It was hard to choose, but in the end I went with the game that left stronger impression on me

M2: Gabriel Knight 3 - I think in this part JJ reached her writing peak, it went steadily downwards from this point

M3: Broken Sword - Still the best game in the series, 2nd and 5th were a way too short and 3D ones are not worth mentioning

M4: The Dig - Another hard one, but I think The Dig was the most underrated adventure in its release time, when you compare it who made it and who conceived it

Oh wow, tough ones. And what a surprise, my most favorite game goes against my second favorite (or, if I count the full series of my #1, 4th favorite).

Anyways:
1) Machinarium - not easy, but like above, Machinarium has left such a strong impression…
2) Gabriel Knight 3 - The. Best. Game. Ever. No game does what GK3 does, it’s brilliant, it’s ground-breaking and it’s a damn shame that no game has apparently tried to do what Gabriel Knight 3 did. Brilliant interface, Le Serpent Rouge, fantastic story, living world, everything. I love Grim Fandango more than almost any other game (it’s pretty much #2 after the GK series), but it’s still a game - GK3 is almost something more Wink
3) Broken Sword - I’m pretty close on this one. I’m almost tempted to not vote, but I guess I’ll go with BS.
4) The Dig. I love both these games (Syberia was also a much better game than Syberia 2), they both have a wonderful atmosphere, but I feel like The Dig still did a better overall job, from gameplay to atmosphere.

1 - Discworld Noir - Machinarium just can’t compete with this!
2 - Grim Fandango - Because GK.
3 - Gemini Rue - Broken Sword is an amazing and fantastic game, but I feel that Gemini Rue is just that little bit above it, and paced a little bit better.
4 - The Dig - Highly underrated, absolutely brilliant.

1. Tough one but I’ll vote for Discworld Noir. Personal favorite.
2. GF
3. Gemini Rue. BS is a great game but I find the setting and the atmosphere of Gemini Rue more intriguing. And I always considered George a little dumb Tongue
4. The Dig
