My favorites:

Resonance - Gemini Rue - Deponia - Edna and Harvey: The Breakout - Whispered World - Botanicula - Machinarium - Overclocked - Tales of Monkey Island - Sam & Max: Season 1, 2, 3 - The Lost Crown - Rhiannon - Return to Mysterious Island 1,2

PS: I forgot Dear Esther! Not an adventure game. More like a multimedia experience.

     

Now playing: ——-
Recently finished: don’t remember
Up next:  Eh…
Looking forward to:
Ithaka of the Clouds; The Last Crown; all the kickstarter adventure games I supported

Ah, I forgot Rhiannon! For some reason I thought it was released a lot earlier.

2012 - Dear Esther, Donna: Avenger of Blood (eagerly waiting for Last Crown Smile)
2011 - The Book Of Unwritten Tales, A New Beginning
2010 - Darkness Within 2, Lost Horizon
2009 - Dark Fall: Lost Souls (plus The Void and Umineko no Naku Koro ni Chiru)
2008 - The Lost Crown, Overclocked, Penumbra: Black Plague

But only Lost Crown can match with classic adventures from 90-99.

Since 2008 I have been playing less and less adventures, there really is nothing that interests me. Since 2009 I’ve played 20 adventures (I used to play 30 per year).
2008 Outcry, Rhiannon
2009 Machinarium, Yoormurjak’s Ring
2010 Rhem 4, Amertis, The Filmmaker, Slip Space Burma Shave Analogy
2011 Tiny Bang Story
2012 Botanicula, The 5 Cores

I’m hoping Myst style games will become more popular so I can start playing real adventures again instead of the casual games I’m left with now.

I have a huge backlog on the PC, though, so I simply haven’t played all that many recent games…

What?! No Ghost Trick?! Gasp

I limited myself to games I gave 4 stars or more to. Ghost Trick stranded at 3.5 which is merely “very good”, not one of my gradations of “superb”... Wink

That’s also why Gemini Rue and Gray Matter aren’t on there, and why none of the Professor Layton games are on there. I have to draw the line somewhere… Tongue
