    What are your favourite adventure games?

    Personally I loved Beneath a Steel Sky (which I read they'll make a sequel to if the iPhone version sells well), Discworld and the Monkey Island games.

    More recently I finished Machinarium which was an awesome addition to the genre. I wish the bigger studios would go back to making point and click I think it still has potential with the current hardware.

    Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis is another good one.

    Monkey Island 2 is my favourite.

    I loved the old Indiana Jones games and Sam & Max when I was a kid.

    I hate all adventure games.

    Grim Fandango, Monkey Island 2, Monkey Island 3, Monkey Island 1, Day of the Tentacle. In that order.

    Grim Fandango is the peak as far as I'm concerned, the Monkey Island games were great (haven't played the new one yet), the original Sam and Max was teriffic (again haven't tried the recent stuff as the reviews were poor). Blade Runner was really good (tempted to try and see if I can get it running on XP), I've got Toonstruck buried in a box somewhere and only ever tried it for about 10 minutes when I originally bought it.

    I downloaded Beneath a Steel Sky from GOG recently as a freebie because I'd played the first level as a demo when it was originally released and I recall it was pretty good. I always wanted to try the games based on the Terry Pratchett books but never bought them at the time, a trawl through Amazon & ebAy should help.

    Monkey island has to be the defining point and click adventure, original ones not the new stuff.
    They re-did the original games with new graphics for XP btw. Tex Murphy games wernt bad either.
    Have to point out Toonstruck as the worst. Setting the game in a world where nothing makes sense makes it difficult to solve puzzles logically. + it was buggy as hell.

    P.S I wish I had an Extendo-Schythe in more games.

    I "played" until level 4, realised what I was actually doing and then closed it. It's like some sort of clicking addiction..

    Mmmmm... point and click addiction... mmm...

    Imagine if you had Bolivian marching powder on the go, then you could do the hoovering at the same time.

    The best point & click games for me have to be the Penumbra Series.

    Day of the tentacle was brilliant so was Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis.
    Broken swords are good also.

    Played through a few Tex Murphy games under a killing moon / overseer mostly.
    Playing a few Mystery Case Files games but a bit short.
