All the QFG games definitely! :thumbsup: I also liked the old SSI “Gold Box” games like Pool of Radiance and Curse of the Azure Bonds. There’s also the Bards Tale games. Wing Commander ;D but that’s a space flight sim so that’s not part of the adventure genre. Myst was good and 7th Guest too. That’s all I can think of right now.

Oh I've played all the WC Games and their spin-offs. I just mentioned the first titles in those series because I hate starting in the middle.
As you know there are multiple WC games, QFG, Goldbox games, Myst games, Bards Tale's, and ever a part two to 7th guest called 11th Hour. Can't think of any other Adventure games from the early 90's or before right now that were interesting.

I feel compelled to note that The 11th Hour is freaking freaky. :P

I loved goofy nature of the Monkey Island games, and the Leisure Suit Larry series as well was pretty funny. XD

It’s been YEARS since I played it but yes it is strange and I hated :wall: that chemistry puzzle. (I never was good at Othello which is essentially what it was.)

I never played those. Maybe some day I'll play the LL series.

I've never played Monkey Island, but would like to. Is there a compilation out?

I don't think so.  They're created by LucasArts and not Sierra. 8)

The only thing about Monkey Island is that it has that annoying Lucasarts interface. :P

You get used to it after a while. :P  I think there may be keyboard shortcuts too.

Another good one to play is Day of the Tentacle! XD

It was the cat and mouse game that messed me up. :P I just kept restarting until I got an easy board. XD Of course, I was never any good at pente either. ;P
