@simone54 Crap! I totally forgot to put any Zelda games on my list! Uh… Uh… I’d have to say my favorite zelda is between Link to The Past and The Wind Waker. (gotta love that art style!)

Loving all the answers everyone, amazing lists!

@tennesseejac Tip of my hat for Skeeball and Rock, Paper, Scissors

@Bri_L Dude, if you like all those Lucas Arts adventure games, you owe it to yourself to play The Longest Journey, it came out around the same time as Grim Fandango so you might be able to find it cheap on ebay or something. It’s one of the few games that totally invaded my subconscious thought.

Ok, I’ll chime in:

Forgotten Hope 2 (Bf2 mod, PC)
Shadow of the Colussus (Ps2)
Passage (Flash/iPhone)
GTA: Vice City (PS2)
Age of Empires II (Mac)

And for bonus points, I have to mention:
Marathon (Mac) – when PC people were playing Doom and thinking it was the cat’s ass, Mac people were years ahead of the curve with Marathon (it eventually became Halo).
Bolo – I’m pretty sure that was the first network game I ever played.

How come I’ve only played 4–5 games on that list and haven’t even heard of half of them?
I’ve heard many good things about Grim Fandango and I’m sure Morrowind and Oblivion are great (once I find time for them). Neverwinter Nights 2 is too buggy on my PC.

Other than those, my own list (depending on how addicted I have been to them) would include:

1. Frontier: Elite II
2. Might and Magic VI and VIII (as well as all the others)
3. Gothic (1+2, I still have not managed to play 3)
4. Heroes of Might and Magic (esp. II and III, never played V)
5. Quest for Glory (all 5, especially 1+2)
6. Master of Orion 2
7. WarcraftIII: Frozen Throne, partricularly the DotA map, which has been a game in its own right for several years now
8. Death Gate (an old DOS adventure game, real good)
9. Monkey Island (esp. 1+2). They are low on the list because they have annoyed me a lot. Would be higher if the only criterion was time spent playing.
10. Grimm’s Hatchery and Magic Farm (basically the same game)

EmpressPixie's avatar

@Jack79: Might and Magic VI is a YES!

TheRocketPig's avatar

@Jack79 Grim Fandango is amazing. It’s possibly Tim Schafer’s (Full Throttle, Psychonauts, Brutal Legend) greatest work.

TheB's avatar

Tetris Attack
Guilty Gear
Grim Fandango
Marvel Vs Capcom 2
Typing of the Dead
Chrono Trigger (although i can’t stand to play it anymore, the experience was great)
You Don’t Know Jack Series (after seeing all the questions, it’s no longer fun, but if there were a new subscription-based version, i’d be all up on it)
Kanji Kentei 2 (japanese DS game that preps you for the Japanese Nation Kanji Examinations… not for everyone, i know)
Castlevania 3:Dracula’s Curse (at the moment)

Wow, I am feeling really OLD school:

Hack (DOS game where B’s were bats and =‘s were rings, now called Fate in it’s rerendering)

There was one called Adventure something that was all text (so the entire landscape was in your head) and you typed (E)ast, (N)orth, etc to move around.

Emergency (have to deploy all the little firefighters and cops “on scene”)


Zelda (from the first Ninendo to the current one on the Wii)

Gabriel Knight
