  1. No question: The Secret of Monkey Island.

  2. The Secret of monkey Island !! “Look behind you, a three-headed monkey!”

  3. For me, it’s easily Goblins 3. Coincidentally, I think it’s the least known adventure series!

  4. I enjoyed King’s Quest V, but I think it has a lot to do with me playing it when I was way younger. Or, does Maniac Mansion count? Cos that game ruled.

  5. Only one? Then “Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders” is my choice.

  6. Simon the sorceror was pretty good.

  7. Day of the Tentacle…No, wait. Discworld….No, damnit, Broken Sword! This is too hard, I give up on this competition I can’t win anyway.

    Gotta be: The secret of monkey island. :]

  9. Day of the Tentacle, hands down.

    The Secret of Monkey Island!

    Grim Fandango

  12. ^ Whoops. That was me. So, yeah. The Secret of Monkey Island.

  13. The Longest Journey, definitely. Dragons FTW.

  14. Day of the Tentacle, definitely. The art still makes me chuckle to this day.

  15. I’m gonna have to go with Myst on this one. The granddaddy of ‘em all. Or at least the first one I played.

    I’d have to say Sam and Max Season One Episode Four, It was the first one I can remember vividly loving. After that one I went on a binge and played the rest of the Sam and Max games…

  18. Sanitarium was an awesome creepy adventure game.

  19. Hell yeah!
    Sanitarium! That was such a trippy game.

  20. I tend to try to stay away from point and click…does Runescape count?

  21. That’d be The Neverhood for me then.

  22. Indiana Jones and the Secret of Atlantis.

  23. for me it would be “Day of Tentacle”. sure monkey island is sweet.. but DoTT has just more good looks and more zanny characters than i had ever seen.

  24. Simon The Sorcerer. One of my very first adventure games, and the first one I’ve actually owned. Also my first proper introduction to British humor :)

  25. @Karar, Michaelc, Simon and Paul

    Agreed about Day of the Tentacle. That game was so far ahead of its time. Still amaze me to this day.

  26. avatar Mudbuddah

    The Longest Journey

  27. avatar Dave

    Secret of Money Island for me!

  28. Sam and Max: Hit the Road. By a long shot.

    “Sam, the dead animal heads are talking to me”

  29. Blade Runner, from westwood studios; I’ve played it to death, trying to get all possible endings, truly unique.

  30. Definitely Secret of Monkey Island.

  31. the original monkey island that me and my dad use to play together(it was mostly me watching and he would read it to me)

  32. Blazing Dragons is one of the most hilaroious, underrated point-and-click titls of all time!

  33. While I will agree Goblins 3 was an excellent game it didn’t really make me want to play it again after I had figured out the puzzles… No my choice goes to Sam and Max which has enjoyed a renewal of sorts recently but frankly I doubt it will ever be as good as when if was first released in 1993 by none other than LucasArts. Great game and great story!

    For me it has to be Gabriel Knight: Sins of the father. UNTOUCHABLE!!

  35. For me it has to be Gabriel Knight: Sins of the father. UNTOUCHABLE!!

  36. My all time favourite has to be ‘Stupid Invaders’ for the Dreamcast. It’s full of classic gags and surreal humour:)

    Sam & Max, Monkey Island & Day of Tentacle is our families greatest games for party time, wish everyone the best of luck on winning.

  38. Grim Fandango remains, for me, the finest adventure game I’ve yet played. Beautiful graphics, impeccable voice acting, and great design and storyline–it’s fun to revist every 5 years or so.

  39. Wow, I’m surprised absolutely no-one voted for Broken Sword… I loevd that series so much.

    Of course.. I’ve never played Grim Fandango or The Secret of Monkey Island or pretty much any of the other games listed here…. please don’t hate me. :p

  40. Koala Lumpur: Journey to the Edge!

    Bet you didn’t see that one coming! :P

  41. Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars was brilliant. It had that real European feel, due to its art design and fantastic musical score. It also was a joy to play from start to finish, which makes it my undoubted favourite point and click of all time…

    …possibly until Machinarium, of course! ;)

  42. The Neverhood. Sad to this day I loaned it to a college friend who never returned it :(

    Maniac Mansion was also great fun.

  43. I’ve enjoyed point-and-click adventures over a long span of eons… I enjoyed The Residents’ Freak Show, Laurie Anderson’s Puppet Motel, Drew Pictures’ Iron Helix, and Simulations’ Himalayan Journey back in the stoned age of CD-ROMs. Then the internets came along with all those tubes and wires and I discovered Samorost. And nothing has nudged it from my favor since. My vote goes to Samorost (1 *and* 2). The vibe of those games keeps me thinking of the forest while I’m staring at an LCD screen. That, my friends, is “Art”.
