Best plot - Gabriel Knight - Sins of the Fathers
Runner up - Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
Honourable mention - Full Throttle

Best jokes - Monkey Island 1/2
Runner up - Sam and Max Hit the Road
Honourable mention - Day of the Tentacle

Best puzzles - Day of the Tentacle
Runner up - Monkey Island 1/2 (I just can't seperate those two)
Honourable mention - Sam and Max Hit the Road

It should be noted that I am still halfway through Grim Fandango and Discworld Noir, and I havent even started The Longest Journey.

Sam & Max and Full Throttle are nice games but maybe not the best ever...

Yes, shame on you :P

It introduced me to Discworld as well, I have read them all and between me and my school's library I can read them all. For me Monkey Island 2 is the best of the series, I liked the money system and the freedom of movement between islands.

Btw, I have completed Discworld Noir seven times, Monkey Island 2 three times and Grim Fandango twice.

Stroggy, if its the bug I'm thinking of you can bypass it simply by starting a new game every time you play, then loading your savegame after the intro. Let me know if it works!

More or less there are several adventures that keep repeating. I'm also adventure fan, started with textual adventures on C64. Well, then I got a magazine where I read aboout Shadow of the Comet and Alone in the Dark 1 & 2 (rewiews and complete walkhthroughs). I thnik I read walkthrough of Shadow about 100 times. Years later I found a game. I think they gave it mark 8 for overall but they also gave ut 10 for scenario. Meanwhile I also played Lucas adventures and liked them very much (you already named them all )
Well, I hope Kosta will upload Shadow soon, so see for yourself is it really worth talking.
