I sat down after reading the thread and thought "...thats easy my favourite adventure of all time was...????" I then got stuck for a moment. I realised the problem was that there was indeed two sub-types of adventure games. The ones that you played on your own, and the ones that invovled everyone who you knew played adventures.

My favourite solo adventure would have to be Eye of the beholder.

The one kept us going for weeks at school was Guild of thieves for the C64.

Ahh... the memories.

Jeez Ninja! How could I not include "Guild Of Thieves"?
That was one of the games i did a search for 5 years ago online and found out about Amiga emulation!

SPACE QUEST 5 The next mutation - PC

would be on top of my list

All of the Sierra Space Quest and LSL games were really funny and enjoyable to complete.

The Police quest series was also good but a bit more on the serious side.

never got into the kings quest or Manhunter series

besides Sierra the entire LucasFilm/Arts series were great as well

Indy last crusade - worth buying for the grail diary
Maniac mansion
DOTT
Zak
Monkey Islands

Well of course I should add now that Broken Sword 3 is due out soon in Oz,(presumably already available in the U.K. I'm guessing), hopefully it'll be successful/good enough to revive the genre.

Though I'm still annoyed that Broken Sword 1 won't install on my XP partition. Surely with the litany of issues, it wouldn't kill Revolution to write a patch to allow everyone to install it in XP if they wanted to!

Squirrel? Golf club? Bad karma, man.

But yeah, Zak does rock. Very amusing game. Great dialogue. Brilliant attention to detail too.

I have actually only recently got into adventure games, thanks to a wise old wolf introducing them to me. Another cartoony adventure that I enjoyed a lot was Sam & Max Hit the Road. Funn-ee.

Seems there's a tad too much hit & miss for my liking. I've read of quite a few hassles with installing it on XP,which I had been suffering when this suddenly started happening in particular,(see picture)
Since then installing Broken Sword 1 has been a no-goer under XP. And never seen anything like this mentioned anywhere. No other games modern or WinUAE related have encountered this, only BS1.

@Fred. I'm not totally lost as I can always install it under my Win98 partition, but I just have a lot of junk on '98 atm, rather than on my XP partition. More so, I'd also been checking out how easily it installed on XP for future reference.

Apologies for going O/T. Going back on-topic, I really enjoyed D.O.T.T. & Sam & Max,even more so than Monkey Island 1 & 2! Probably a tie between the Indy adventure games.
The Broken Sword games are great titles in their own right, but I think they deserve to not be rated strictly alongside the Lucasarts stuff,just as the LSL series was different again, slightly different takes on the same basic concepts.
