Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers - This was very hard for me, both games are lacking something to be in the final, but somehow GK is at least less pretentious, so it’s easier for me to give my vote for it

Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers!

I have also played GF to completion but it’s very much a game where I found I was hooked on some parts of it & was less interested in others & ended up playing it in dribs & drabs according to where I’d got to - also I found it quite a hard game or I’m really thick!!! .......pleeease tell me it’s a hard game   Laughing

Grim Fandango.

In a match between a game I gave 5 stars and one I gave 4.5, the 5-star game wins.

I have no problem whatsoever with the four semifinalists. All of them deserve to be here, imo. Cool

Still going to have to go with GK1. For me it probably is the #1 overall adventure.

Absolutely love both and they’re both in my top 3 games of all time. I’m just actually playing Grim Fandango Remastered again, but I vote my all time favorite game, Gabriel Knight Sins of the Fathers.

Grim Fandango.

By the way, I can’t vote in the other thread. It says it can’t take my submission at this time.

     

Ignorance + Poverty = Crime, Ignorance + Wealth = Corruption, Ignorance + Freedom = Chaos, Ignorance + Authority = Tyranny, Ignorance + Religion = Terrorism
Replace Ignorance with Knowledge:
Knowledge + Poverty = Satisfaction, Knowledge + Wealth = Civilization, Knowledge + Freedom = Creativity, Knowledge + Authority = Justice, Knowledge + Religion = Integrity

Gabriel Knight is not a bad game, in fact it is a great game from a great series of games, and a worthy contender in the semifinals (unlike some other game I could mention), but this is the end of the line for Gabriel as far as I’m concerned.
Top 10 - Certainly, Top 5 - Well… why not? But Top 2 - Naah, its good but not that good!

Fortunately Grim Fandango is exactly that good!
It is imltho one of the three best adventure games ever made (and the only one of those three to make it to the semifinals Shifty Eyed)

So my vote goes to: Grim Fandango

Grim Fandango: Sins of the Fathers

Definitely a vote for Grim here. It looks like I need to play GK again and see what all the fuss is about.

I vote for Gabriel Knight.

I’m surprised Grim Fandango is so popular because, to me, it looks like a bad Nintendo 64 game. Perhaps some people like it so much because they grew up with it. I’m that way with the movie Willow. I watched Willow many times as a kid and I loved it. Now as an adult I understand on some objective level that the movie is bad, but I still love it because…it’s Willow! I have great memories of watching Willow.

Well, I played both GK and Grim Fandango for the first time when I was an adult, and they both now belong among my absolute favourites. I do love Gabriel and his world, but… Grim Fandango’s noir mood, unforgettable characters and GORGEOUS soundtrack have to win out for me here (not to mention Manny’s supersexy voice!!).

So, my vote goes to Grim Fandango.

     

Current favourites: Murdered: Soul Suspect, The Talos Principle
Lasting loves: Tex Murphy, Gabriel Knight, Black Dahlia, Grim Fandango, The Last Express, L.A. Noire, Portal 2
