Prisoner of Ice...

Interesting, that game was such a disappointment to me.  I was so looking forward to it after Shadow of the Comet.

Thanks for the well wishes folks :) I do indeed choose to see it as a good thing and great opportunity.

Also, a directors LP of TSL once it's all done WOULD be kinda awesome....maybe we will do it!

Let's Play The Silver Lining (Eps. 1-5) with KatieHal! ;)


1. The Dig (It's my Catcher in the Rye)
2. Silent Hill: Shattered Memories
3. Day of the Tentacle
4. The Neverhood
5. I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream
6. Police Quest: Open Season
7. Last Window: The Secret of Cape West
8. Leisure Suit Larry: Love for Sail!
9. Police Quest 3
10. Monkey Island
11 Penumbra: Black Plague
12. The Bizarre Adventures of Woodruff and the Schnibble
13. Full Throttle
14. Realms of the Haunting
15. Mass Effect (I spent 70% of the game clicking on hotspots and talking to people)
16. Gabriel Knight 3
17. Sanitarium
18. Blade Runner
19. King's Quest 6 (5 for nostalgia)
20. Simon the Sorcerer II: The Lion, the Wizard and the Wardrobe


Some interesting choices in there Mikael. Police Quest 4 is my least fav of the PQ. I would have probably have PQ3 almost made the cut.

I was debating whether to put Larry 6 or 7 in my list. But my heart is closer to 6, even if 7 is one hell of an adventure game as well.

I never finished Simon 2. I tried, many times. And Silent Hill, I was really looking forward to it when I played it, but ended up very disappointed.

I have no mouth, and Sanitarium I liked but not as much as I thought I would.

Another one that should have almost made my list is Darkseed.

Okay okay, here's my REAL list.

1.) Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
2.) Monkey Island 2 LeChuck's Revenge
3.) Sam & Max Hit the Road
4.) Hero's Quest
5.) King's Quest 5
6.) The Dig
7.) Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
8.) Quest For Glory 4
9.) Kyrandia 2: Hand of Fate
10.) Secret of Monkey Island
11.) Day of the Tentacle
12.) King's Quest 6
13.) Curse of Monkey Island
14.) Loom
15.) Space Quest
16.) Quest For Glory 2
17.) Space Quest 2
18.) Laura Bow: Colonel's Bequest
19.) Space Quest 5
20.) Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers

I keep editing this list.  Ordering may vary.  The top 5 are pretty set in stone though, and in the correct order.


oh, man, how the hell did I forget Kyrandia??

I loved the story in Shattered Memories. Instead of being a straight horror story, it was more of a character study. Sex, puberty, relationship with ones parents... Those are themes that are rarely used well in games and I thought that Shattered Memories treated them with a nice ammount of maturity.

I love PQ4 more since it got rid of the melodrama of the earlier games. To me PQ2 was a bit too close to Miami Vice. PQ3 felt like an excellent middleground, but I still liked PQ4 better. It felt more like an actual investigation rather than playing a story with some investigation elements in it.


Lamb you may want to change your password, I think Perceval hacked your account for a minute there. ;)

Completely forgot about Sam & Max.

You know, I'm reordering my list one more time--I actually think Kyrandia 2 belongs in the top 10.  Kyrandia 1 might make the top 20 cut, too--but I'm not sure which other game I'd cut to put it in there.
