The Walking Dead: Episode One - A New Day  (2012)

The Walking Dead may have more gore than puzzles, but by striking out in a new direction that focuses on atmospheric storytelling, Telltale delivers one their most compelling and enjoyable titles to date.

Botanicula  (2012)

A creation of obvious love and care, Botanicula is a must-play for those seeking a truly imaginative and entertaining adventure game.

The Book of Unwritten Tales  (2011)

It took a while to be told, but The Book of Unwritten Tales holds an epic adventure between its pages, bringing to life a gorgeous, multi-dimensional, quest-laden world of glittering seas and fiery mountains, and filling it with some of the most endearing game characters of all time.

Stacking  (2011)

Stacking mixes inventive gameplay with a charming visual style to produce an outstanding puzzle-adventure.

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective  (2011)

Ghost Trick’s innovative control system, complex plot, and compelling gameplay combine to make this an enjoyably spirited DS adventure.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent  (2010)

Not for the faint of heart, this gothic horror adventure is a relentlessly intense and terrifying experience from start to finish.

Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge - Special Edition  (2010)

Though purists shouldn’t throw away their old floppy disks, there is something for everyone to love in the Monkey Island 2: Special Edition, as the upgraded version is a wonderful way to experience one of the all-time adventure classics.

Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge  (1991)

Though purists shouldn’t throw away their old floppy disks, there is something for everyone to love in the Monkey Island 2: Special Edition, as the upgraded version is a wonderful way to experience one of the all-time adventure classics.

Heavy Rain  (2010)

An incredibly beautiful and engaging interactive story, Heavy Rain is a rare testament of both quality and originality rarely seen in games. Well worth a look for every PlayStation 3 owner.

Pepper’s Adventures in Time  (1993)

Pepper’s Adventures in Time is not only a great educational game for children and young adults, it is a classic adventure game for all ages.

Machinarium  (2009)

As imaginative as it is polished, Machinarium is refreshing, unique, and highly recommended. Just buy it. In fact, buy a copy for a friend.

Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 3 - Lair of the Leviathan  (2009)

No need to mince words--this is a breathtaking, spectactular game that is one of the all-time great adventure experiences and a must-play-NOW for every fan of adventures, past or present.

Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box  (2009)

Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box keeps the lovely European charm and challenging puzzles of its predecessor intact, with more enjoyable extras this time around. Just mind the particularly shallow story that only loosely ties it all together.

Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars - The Director’s Cut (DS)  (2009)

Not quite perfect, this Broken Sword: Director’s Cut is still the best port of an adventure game on the DS to date. Whether experiencing the game for the first time or reliving old memories, there is much for everyone to enjoy in this game.

Police Quest 2: The Vengeance  (1988)

The Vengeance is an entertaining and intense retro adventure that is not only the best of its series, but one of the very best of Sierra’s Golden Age.

Conquests of the Longbow: The Legend of Robin Hood  (1991)

Too often forgotten in the midst of more famous Sierra series, with its captivating plot and appealing characters, this game is a true classic that deserves to be in every adventurer’s collection.

King’s Quest VI: Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow  (1992)

If you only play one King’s Quest game, make it this one. It’s the only game in the series where story and gameplay come together in perfect balance, and after a decade of working to get it right, it’s one of the best games Sierra gave us.

Portal  (2007)

Whether or not you leap, Portal is a one-of-a-kind experience that's well worth every gamer looking into. Just take your time and enjoy, because "speedy thing goes in, speedy thing comes out" and it's over all too soon.

Professor Layton and the Curious Village  (2008)

Buy this game. It’s fun, it’s cute, and believe me: it’ll work your brain more than any “brain-training” game might say it can. Just don't expect the puzzles to meld into the story.

Sam & Max: Episode 201 - Ice Station Santa  (2007)

Just slightly below Reality 2.0 on the list of great episodes; it’s laugh-out-loud funny, with very intelligent puzzle design and a totally demented self-contained story which interjects demonic possession into a sacred holiday. An absolute must-play.

Sam & Max: Season Two  (2008)

This game, and this season as a whole, is completely, certifiably nutso. And therein lies the magic and the charm of the experience. It's a wonderful experience when it's not straining under the weight of its own ambition.
