Though most gamers consider this a dead genre, I'm making this list the help Adventure fans keep the genre alive, by showing all new and recent titles that bring back that certain Myst/Sierra/Lucas Arts charm back to our PC.

Any additions (preferably 2002 and onwards) are much welcomed and appreciated. Just leave a comment.

Also, check out some of my other Adventure-related lists:

MYST series

Top 20 Adventure Games: not MY Top 20 choices, but a great list regardless

SCUMM games: Classic Lucas Arts games using the famous SCUMM engine, first found in Maniac Mansion

Virtual Theatre games: Another adventure gaming engine, this one found in the first two Broken Sword games as well as Beneath a Steel Sky

Monkey Island series: needs no introduction to adventure gaming fans

Sam & Max series: A true classic adventure enjoying recent revival in form of downloadable episodes

and here's many other Adventure game lists, most from Prelude76:

Broken Sword series

Legend of Kyrandia series

King's Quest series

Space Quest series

Police Quest series

Leisure Suit Larry series

Quest for Glory series

Nancy Drew series

Nice list! The first Broken Sword game is being released for the Wii, which may be something to add here. :)
Posted: 4 years, 10 months ago at Jun 26 19:41
Added a few more titles. Still to add: Black Mirror 2 and Still Life 2.
Posted: 4 years, 8 months ago at Aug 7 19:51
Tales of Monkey Island & The Strong Bad stuff at least on WiiWare, of course :)
Posted: 4 years, 8 months ago at Aug 7 20:00
Dead? No way. It's my favourite genre by far.
I absolutely love Broken Sword and Monkey Island.
I bought Dreamfall and Sam&Max recently. I will be checking this to look for what to play next.
Nice list!

Want to know the sad thing. My computer is too slow to play most of these games. Well, half of them atleast.

Syberia! Wow! It sure brings back memory!

Thanks for all the recent votes, people! Its good to still see an interest in adventure gaming.

About Heavy Rain for PS3, this list is for PC titles only. I also have one going for DS and Wii, but there are maybe 2 or 3 adventure games on x360 and ps3, so i didnt make a list for those.

Great List, List-All. You're missing the latest 2 entries in Frogware's the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (versus Lupin and Ripper); Telltale's new episodic series Tales of Monkey Island, Strong Bad and Wallace & Gromit. All of them are available for Windows, some of them also for other platforms.
Posted: 4 years, 5 months ago at Nov 17 18:52
Thanks, I'll add them soon.

Thanks for the great list, my absolute favourite game genre! Lots of great titles to try next.
Posted: 2 years, 6 months ago at Oct 5 5:22
Nice list. Did you ever play any of the Missing / In Memoriam series? Those are alternate reality games with much background information on a few interesting topics. I saw how old this list is, still at least one of them should make the list.
Posted: 6 days, 18 hours ago at Apr 17 6:29
Very nice list. For sure I will visit it again to select an adventure to play in the future :)
