what a totally original idea this is
shoot'em-ups have ruled the board for too long now (although i do like them) so lets hear what your favourite adventure games are, and as with the shoot'em-up thread, it can be any platform, try and describe why you like it so much and try and attach a screenshot if possible.
just make sure its an adventure and not a rpg because that can be a entirely new thread!
i think mine has to be monkey island 2, it looked good (which does help) had some great puzzles and a really funny story which makes it so great. but there are lots of other great adventures out there so lets hear em!
