From F1ak3r's post


Grim Fandango (may be difficult to run on modern systems – I know my copy whines about 64bit)

Sam & Max episodes (I've only played the first season, but I'm sure the others are excellent as well)

Time Gentlemen, Please! (bloody hilarious, deconstructs the genre, available for next to nothing on Steam)

Previously commercial – available from the Scumm VM site

Beneath a Steel Sky (a serious sci-fi story)

Flight of the Amazon Queen (wacky adventures in the Amazon rainforest)


Ben There, Dan That (predecessor to Time Gentlemen, Please! above, also really funny)

Everything by Yahtzee – his Chzo Mythos games, Adventures in the Galaxy of Fantabulous Wonderment, The Trials of Odysseus Kent, and even 1213 and Art of Theft if you feel like adventure-flavoured platformers (and actually, not everything, don't go earlier than Kent).

Everything by Ben304 – he's made a lot of really neat short games in interesting universes.

Grundislav's Ben Jordan series – now complete with eight episodes and snazzy remakes of the first two.

Cirque De Zale (basically a modern-day LucasArts game)

Jessica Plunkenstein And The Dusseldorf Conspiracy (the graphics are pillaged from resource packs, but it's full voiced and I remember it being really funny)

Nelly Cootalot (so amusing!)

How They Found Silence (ugly graphics, but the rest of the game makes up for it)

Nanobots (I think it has a commerical sequel too)

Aeronuts (it's got a SHMUP minigame)

the white chamber (really well-produced horror game with animey art)

The Vacuum (an experiment in branching storytelling of the sort you don't see in a lot of these games)

Damsel (a short, fully voiced game about a damsel who has to get out of her own distress)

Adventure Games

Fedora Spade (complete at four episodes and made in GM – you'll probably need the GM6 Vista convertor)

Photopia (if you play one text adventure, make it this one)

I recently have been playing Al Emmo and the Lost Dutchmans Mine. It's good so far, kinda difficult tho. I've had to check a FAQ guide to see what I need to do next. I know I'm a big cheater [:(]

I have beaten Maniac Mansion several times and It's probably one of my favorite Point and Click Adventure games. I think I have it on almost everything; PC, PSP, XBOX, NES, and probably something else I'm leaving out. I've yet to beat Day of the Tentacle.

Hector: Badge of Carnage

But seriously.

Just play everything Telltale makes.

You may be better off just watching a Let's Play of the Chzo games, some parts are… less than logical.

Edit: Also, you have them double listed, 5 Days a Stranger is the first Chzo game.

"Freddi Fish"


No Putt Putt?

Penumbra series
I played the first one, it was pretty meh; especially after playing Amnesia: The Dark Descent (you really should play that one). I have yet the try the second or third one yet so I'm not sure if it's skippable. Considering the ending though I have to imagine you need to play them all.

Thanks guys :)

I never heard of Putt Putt. It's funny you mention telltale I was just at their site getting ready to add it to the links.

Oooooh the kings quest series is one of my all time favorites. I highly reccomend it. I must have played The princless bride a dozen times.

Freddi Fish

Putt Putt
These and Pajama Sam. My childhood right there.

As for point-and-click flash games:





http://www.kongregate.com/games/ImpendingRiot/alice-is-dead-ep-2 (episode 1 exists, but for some reason I don't have it saved)

and one of my long-time favorites:


This one isn't point-and-click, but it's a nice exploration-type thing if I remember right: http://www.kongregate.com/games/Kajenx/william-and-sly-2

And since you're looking for horror-adventure stuff, I guess I'm morally obligated to mention Corpse Party. I would definitely not recommend that one for kids though lol

Space Quest 6: The Spinal Frontier

Edit: Also, The 11th Hour and Torin's Passage.

I don't really have anything to add, but excellent list.

Totally going to bookmark for later reference.

fnf you are my hero. i was just thinking i need some new point-and-clicks the other day. i still haven't gotten Shivers to work on Windows 7. -_-

the horror list is especially awesome, as i haven't heard of most of those. i heard Eternal Darkness was good. i have some birthday money to spend, what good horror games for GC and PS2 would you recommend?
